Getting Juiced about Juice: 5 Favorite Recipes
Whether you’re a juice aficionado or considering taking the plunge to start this healthy habit, juicing is a fast, delicious way to get nutrients from fruits or vegetables that you normally wouldn’t eat or that aren’t a regular part of your diet. The resulting juice retains most of the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that are found in the whole versions of fruits and veggies, which can help protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer and other health problems.
It’s fun and easy to experiment with different fruit and veggie combinations to see what appeals to you the most, but for a little inspiration, check out our five favorite juice recipes below:
