When we lived in South Carolina we’d juice some of the more reasonably priced vegetables, such as carrots, sweet potatoes and apples, but in Ecuador the variety of fruits and veggies at a reasonable price is virtually everything!
We juice about three times a week because juicing is a healthy way to get an abundance of nutrients into your body. The more colorful of a selection of fruits and veggies you juice, the better. Adding two or three cloves of garlic is a great way to keep sickness at bay too!
TIP: Always juice on an empty stomach to ensure total vitamin and mineral assimilation. Then do not eat any solid foods for at least 30 minutes after drinking your juice drink.
Juicing is simple and fun, especially when you have such a variety of fresh produce to choose from. We highly recommend every one of all ages take up juicing on a regular basis—you will feel better and have more energy as a result, even if you’re only juicing apples and carrots.
