Renew and refresh after the holiday season
It’s January, that time of year when many people seek a way to cleanse their bodies after indulging during the holidays. Lots of options for cleansing exist, from shakes to supplements to drinking lemon water for a week. Personally, I like juicing—turning fruits and vegetables into a drinkable form. Many health experts tout the benefits of juicing for helping people detoxify their bodies, lose weight, and revitalize the skin. Plus, the juice tastes delicious! If you’re interested in juicing, try the delicious and easy recipes below.
Tips for juicing:
- You don’t need an expensive juicer; most blenders will do the trick—simply strain the liquid for a smooth consistency, if you prefer.
- If you find the taste too bitter, try adding a banana or apple, instead of sugar, to sweeten the finished product.
- You can include the cores, peels, and rinds of many fruits and veggies. For suggestions about what works and what doesn’t, visit justjuice.org and similar sites.
