Juicing 🍎🍊 101: an Intro Guide πŸ“• on What You Need πŸ’― to Know πŸ’­ ...

I'm here with a juicing 101 guide. Yes! You can use juicing for weight loss. Cooking reduces the nutritional content in most vegetables. Drinking vegetables raw allows the body to absorb more enzymes, nutrients, chlorophyll and antioxidants.

Study guide for Juicing 101? How to blend!

Don't have a juicer? Save yourself some money and use the blender! For all of the recipes I am sharing, all you need to do is:

- Place the ingredients in the blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Use some water in case contents get stuck.
- Place a mesh drainer over a bowl.
- Pour over the bowl, reserving pulp for smoothies or baked goods.
- Pour juice into a glass or cover and chill.

Voila!

Adding protein can make your juice more balanced. Use almond milk, Greek yogurt, flaxseed or peanut butter.
