Fresh juices

I have just received my new juicer from Bosco, cant wait to prepare fresh juices.

Juices are very good and healthy as they help you pre-digesting aliments and absorbing all the nutriments needed which isn't the case when aliments are cooked (as previously explained,  in a process of cooking, ingredients lose a big part of their nutriments) — The best would be eating them raw. Also, juices could be the solution for people unable to ingest the minimum recommended of 5veg/fruits per day.

However, most of juices contain no protein which means it shouldn't be used as a meal replacements but more as a meal supplements (unless you are into a special detox diet).

In order for you to get all nutriments, its also important that you drink your juice straight afterwards — The fresher, the better!

Also make sure that your juicer is properly cleaned every time you use it.

There is so many juices combos that you can create — Here are some ideas that i want to share with you.

For those who want to lose weight:

1. Celery, apples and orange
2. Apple, celery, spinach, Kale and lemon
Kale — powerful in antioxidants (detox food) low in calories, high in fibre, calcium, iron, vitamin A, C, K and obviously zero fat which make Kale the queen of greens. 
3. Apples, cucumber, kale, spinach and Lemon

For those who feel tired and need a boost
1. Tomatoes, celery, cucumber, carrot, parsley, green pepper and spinach
2. Celery and honey
3. Carrot, broccoli and celery

Nausea and/or hungover
