TIPS FOR JUICING AT HOME
Plan a head: So much easier said than done. But know you will need to make a mess in your kitchen. Purchase produce ahead of time, when your feeling great and focused. You WILL have days when you JUST DONT FEEL LIKE IT. Plan a head for those, and be prepared.
Storing Juice: Store juice in sealable glass containters, and make sure the containers are FULL to the top so air cannot kill the enzymes and create bacteria. Mason jars work great, old komchua bottles work awesome, or even old cleanse drinkbar bottles, just make sure everything is clean to prevent spoilage. Juices should be stored no more than three days, however, lemon acts as a preservative and can give your juices a little bit longer in the fridge. Also remember, KEEP THEM COLD. ALWAYS. ALWAYS ALWAYS.
Eating and Juicing. Remember Juice is best on an empty stomach and by itself. Sometimes, however that is just not possible. In our #30daysofjuice there is NO RULES. Drink your juice with a bowl of ice cream or a burger, we don't care. JUST GET IT IN. This is a judge free challenge and a chance for you to create great habits. The likely hood of you consuming your juice while dowing fries is not high, however, should it happen, ITS OK. ITS CALLED LIFE AND A WAY TO GET THAT JUICE IN AND A POTATO, its a vegetable, right?
FRUIT/ VEGETABLE RATIO. Now I know I said there was no rules, and THERE IS NOT. But, try to get your juices at least 70% vegetable or higher. If you get in all apple and carrot, THAT IS OK. Just when you CAN focus on it, or are preparing for a few days worth of juice, stick to cucumber and celery as your base, and add in fruit AT THE END, making sure you got in all your leafy greens.
Purchasing Juice: Now we all know making juice at home is best, but sometimes it is not practical and that is what drinkbar is for! When you are out in about, try to get vegetable based juices, NONHPP, and ALL ORGANIC. It is extremely important to reach for organic, as juicing pesticides is never a great idea!
