The best wake up call

Recently there has been a massive awakening to the powers of juicing, which is fantastic to see, as the benefits to our health our simply wonderous. I have been juicing  for around ten years, It was actually my dad who bought me my first juicer and I found it the most effective way to give my then two year old daughter her daily intake (and much more) of nutrients. As a parent, I think, the main gift you can give your Children is, the most optimum nutrition you can, as a solid ground for their growth, development, energy and the prevention of disease to name a few! Also educating them on how important a good diet is puts them in good stead for when they’re out of your clutches and fly the nest…. (Although I can see myself as that scary stalker kind of mum who follows them to Uni and gate crashes night outs, no escaping little guys!) At the moment my preferred juicer is the Philips ‘Avance’ it’s super easy to use and clean, Which as any fellow juicer will tell you the cleaning is one pain in the ass! Also the ‘Juice Master’ Jason Vale, Who’s book I cannot recommend enough, uses the Philips line of juicers. The beauty of juicing is that anything goes, there are some really amazing recipes in Jason’s book, from combatting colds and flu, eczema, losing weight and (the most important) the hangover helper! Mostly I just try to pack as many veggies in as I can, adding fruit for some natural sweetness. I personally prefer juices to smoothie’s as I like the consistency of the juice as opposed to the thickness of a smoothie, of course you can combine the two a pineapple, mango, cucumber and apple juice whizzed up in the blender with some ice and almond milk is delicious. Since reading about the Japanese recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables being 17 compared to the UK’s 5, I have been trying to aim for that, considering Japan has one of the healthiest nations and the longest life expectancy it is definitely worth taking heed. Buying a juicer and getting into the habit of making one for you and your family every morning is the best investment you will ever make, the life giving energy, pure and natural liquid that flows inside every fruit and vegetable is what needs to pass our lips every single day, beauty definitely comes from within and I can guarantee you will see a difference in your skin, hair, nails and over all well being from starting this juice discovery. Top your morning juice with some chia seeds and you will be a little ball of pure health :)
