Juicing raw veggies and fruit is something I believe in 100%. What juicer do I recommend? The Breville Elite best juicer in my opinion. Why juice you ask? One reason is that the enzymes, vitamins and minerals are immediately available to your body. Whole fruits and vegetables have to go through the digestive process before the nutrients are available to your body. Your digestive process may take hours to complete.
I do love to juice and I have been doing it for years. I love what it has done for me like weight loss. I have lost weight and I am able to keep it off eating smart and juicing every day. I have more energy and some people can't believe how old I am. They say I look much younger than I am. I am 50 years old and I do not have high blood or high cholesterol. My test levels are in the 600s. In other words I feel great and I owe it all to juicing.
When I juice I use the Breville juicer (Elite} is the best. One of my favorite juices to drink is carrot, granny smith apples with a hand full of baby spinach. I just love that one. Another one of my favorite juices is cantaloupe juice it taste wonderful. Make sure you wash the outside really well then put it in the fridge over night to make it cold. Then the next day cut it apart discard the seeds and then juice the skin and all drink ASAP. Never let the juice stand for a long time always drink your juice ASAP. You want all those vitamins, minerals and enzymes in your body to work there magic.
