What is the difference between Juicing and blending your fruit and vegetables?
They are both very healthy and I believe every modern household should have a juicer or blender today. My family have a juice or smoothie most days of the week, including my children, this way I know they get their intake of fresh fruit and vegetable each day.
When you juice you are removing the insoluble fiber – the pulp and extracting up to 75% of the nutrition and without the fiber your body absorbs 100% of these nutrients.
When blending, both the insoluble and soluble fiber remain in a blended juice smoothie, the fiber slows down the digestion therefore it might prevent full intake of nutrients but a smoothie will keep you feeling full for longer.
I find juicing is better for cleansing and rapid healing, and kids often prefer vegetable juices to smoothies.
If you don’t have a juicer or blender yet, don’t wait any longer, start a healthier you right now and make sure that juicing becomes part of yours And your child’s life just like roast dinners and a cup of tea.
