again today I just quickly want to share some valuable information with you concerning the difference between juicing and blending.
Juicing means extracting the juice from fruit and vegetables, the pulp, the dietary fiber, is being discarded. In the below article you will see why sometimes this might be the better option.
Blending means using everything of the fruit or vegetable. With blending you create full, rich smoothies, which - according to what you add to them - can substitute a whole meal. Or they can just be a nice, easy way of taking in a lot of goodness, which approaches your cells very quickly.
I got used to having a smoothie as a breakfast. There are fantastic recipes, which will take you through the morning until lunch. You might want to add raw tofu for your protein, wheatgerm for additional, bowel-moving fiber, a drop of pure coconut or olive oil, which will do you a lot of good plus helps your body to absorb the vitamins in your drink. You can grind nuts and seeds and add them to the smoothie, you might want to use almond or soy milk to make it a bit richer. And you can experiment with fresh veggies and fruits in a mix, which is what I am doing. 1 small banana (the real ones, please, not the forever lasting one from a certain brand I do not want to name here!) adds sweetness, body and its own package of goodness. So, play around, experiment, a kind of dark green leafy vegetable is always a good essential component.
