Juicing – more energy in everyday life

Juicing! What a mess when you try it out by yourself without a good juicer. Haha. Okay maybe I should have start with beetroot ;o). So I decided to buy a juicer. I was concerned with juicing the last two weeks and can’t be more happy with my learning effects. Since I drank fresh pressed carrot-celery juice on the Maldives this year I planned to buy me juicer as well. Half a year ago. After receiving my juicer 4 weeks ago I started directly with juicing and was totally excited with the result. Everybody who match a supermarket juice with a fresh pressed juice will never drank a supermarket juice again. Fresh pressed juice is so much fresher than bought one. And it contains much more vitamins and minerals like stored one.

Juicing and Detox? What’s the context?

Detox means to detoxify your body. To clear your body from toxins and other harmful substances. They are many different ways to detoxify. One way it to use your diary another way is to use cosmetics and help your skin to detoxify. Detox means also to avoid any harmful things like smoking or less sleep. I implement a few detoxifying components in my life. One example is drinking warm water the whole day long or sleep enough. For me it’s very important to feel good with all I’m doing. I need to have fun and I need to live the right balance between living “unhealthy” and “healthy”. I recognize a big wellbeing since I relax more often during the day. Meanwhile I even meditate and can’t live without. An no meditation has nothing to do with esoteric ;o). Maybe the following app is helpful for you: Mindapps

1. Detox Juicing

Juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables and fruits. Fresh pressed juices are an excellent easy way to support your immune system with vitamins and minerals. You can easily press a fresh and healthy juice with the right juicer. I tried out a slow juicer in the last weeks and I’m absolutely convinced. Does speed really matter? Yes it does. Slow juicers are slow because they need to use a pressing force to get the juice through the filter without creating too much heat and friction. With juicing you can vary your vegetables easily. Many people eat the same vegetable dishes every day.

1.1. Difference between smoothie and juices

My first questions was if fresh juices are better than smoothies and what’s the difference? It’s important to understand juices are not a replacer for smoothies. You can drink juices alone as a juice cleanse but most of the times you can drink fresh juices additional to your normal diet. Both have great health advantages. Smoothies and juices are pure nutrients in a jar. They give you an energy boost and taste amazing. To make fresh homemade juice you need a juice machine. Juice is the water and most of the nutrients that have been separated from the fibrous pulp. The body requires little effort to absorb nutrients in juice when fiber is removed. I try to drink my fresh pressed juice additional to my regularly diet to clean my bowels.


1.2. The biggest benefit to drink juice

When you drink juice, highly concentrated vitamins rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutrition’s of the fruits and vegetables. Bottled juices from the supermarket are pasteurized. They are heated and processed, which can kill vitamins and minerals. Drink life with fresh pressed juice! You can simply add whatever you want in your juice. If you prefer it sweeter add more sweet fruits. If you prefer it more special add some wild herbs. You can combine many different vegetable, herbs and fruits.

1.3. Juicing techniques

I decided to use a “Slow Juicer”. I want to explain a little bit about exactly what a “slow juicer” is, for those of you who don’t know it. This technique is also called cold juicer. For beginner, you will have to cut your vegetable and fruits into smaller pieces and feed the pieces slowly enough to not overwhelm the machine. This can be a little more time-consuming, but I love it. For me it is a kind of meditation. I don’t want to hurry up while preparing my juice. I clock how time-investing it really is to make my own juices with my machine and I only need 15 minutes to cut my vegetables and fruits, to produce the juice and to clean the machine. To be honest, that isn’t much time.

1.4. My choice – Hurom Juicer

After my research I was sure I will use a Slow Squeeze Technology which functionality is similar to how you would hand-squeeze an orange instead of shredding fruits and vegetables. This technique minimizing damaging ingredients and keeping natural taste and nutrition intact. The Hurom Juicer isn’t the cheapest juicer in the market but for my it is important to have fun and a high quality machine to make sure I will not damage nutrition. The Hurom Juicer rotates at just 45RPM, ensuring an even gentler process of squeezing the juice from your fruit and vegetables. What results is the purest of juices that preserves even more vitamins and the best possible taste. The model I use is really easy to clean. I didn’t expect it’s so simple.

I have this model: Hurom Juicer

2 Gedanken zu „Juicing – more energy in everyday life“

  1. Wow! I am in love with the color of this juice! We juice regularly and we love it! Tried various combination but never with red cabbage! Not sure about the fennel though – I’ve tried it a few times and have to say I don’t like it – maybe I will give it a go again! One question – does the slow juicer get the same amount of juice out of the fruit? Are you able to compare it?

    • Hi Julia, a slow juicer can produce more Juice than a normal juicer. It is really effective. You can start with a bit cabbage. What is your favorite combination? I am still finding new Juices. xoxo Janine
