No, Momma wasn't encouraging he consumption of Play Doh, or sniffing Smelly Markers; she was referencing an age old piece of wisdom in health advice. Let's face it, if most of your foods are on the brown spectrum (french fried, hamburgers, chocolate shakes), you're probably not getting a good mix of nutrients and vitamins. As fun as eating can be, it does serve a very important role in our quality of living, outside a delicious endeavor. Just as most people have a favorite fruit and/or vegetable they love; many of us avoid eating several healthy foods because we simply don't like the taste, texture, or preparation. Juicing, or the act of pureeing one's fruits and veggies can help mask unwanted flavors while encouraging the intake of positive nutrients.
3 Simple Juice Tips:
1.) Use the pulp: We recently acquired a #BigBossKitchen Power Juicer, which finds itself in the mid-range of juicing appliances. It doesn't have a range of fancy settings, but is easy to use, and very powerful. The inclusion of an extra large pulp catcher allows the user to reserve the separated pulp of fresh fruits and veggies for cooking sauces, and recipes, to encourage the retention of valuable fiber most often found in the pulp. Because machines like the Power Juicer do such an efficient job at removing moisture from the pulp they are especially handy in baking recipes such as muffins and bread.
2.) Drink it fresh: It may seem like common sense but the quality of nutrients, and the experience of the juice itself, declines shortly after initial processing. Fruit is kept ripe and fresh as long as possible inside a skin; once that skin has been removed the fruit (juice) must be stored in refrigeration at an appropriate temperature and should be consumed within 48 hours. Having an easy to clean juicer is key to keeping up with the needs of juicing day to day.
Much like other Big Boss kitchen products, the Power Juicer is very simple to assemble and clean, making this a great juicer for those who wish to enjoy fresh juice, at home, daily. We never seem to let any product go to waste around here now, when something gets too ripe it gets juiced! And making fresh juice at home is much cheaper than buying it in store, something that makes a starter juicer a great gift idea for any family or friends looking to improve their lifestyle.
