Vegetable Juice dos and donts – before you make your first juice

Posted by voemhealth on November 30, 2011 in Nutrition · 0 Comments

There are 3 main reasons to start juicing vegetables today.

Juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables. This is important because most of us have impaired digestion as a result of making less-than-optimal food choices over many years. This limits your bodys ability to absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables.

Juicing will help to pre-digest them for you, so you will receive most of the nutrition, rather than having it go down the toilet.

Juicing allows you to consume an optimal amount of vegetables in an efficient manner. If you are a carb type, you should eat one pound of raw vegetables per 50 pounds of body weight per day. Some people may find eating that many vegetables difficult, but it can be easily accomplished with a quick glass of vegetable juice.

This is partly because you should only start by juicing vegetables that you enjoy eating non-juiced. The juice should taste pleasant not make you feel nauseous.

It is very important to listen to your body when juicing. Your stomach should feel good all morning long. If it is churning or growling or generally making its presence known, you probably juiced something you should not be eating. Personally, Ive noticed that I cant juice large amounts of cabbage, but if I spread it out, I do fine.

It is wise to choose organic whenever possible. However, some vegetables are worse than others. Below are the vegetables that are the most pesticide loaded ones according to the Environmental Working Group.

So it would be wise to only purchase these vegetables if they are organically grown. The worst ones are listed first.

Cucumber (not as bad if you peel the skin)

Drink your veggies right away – or store it very carefully.

Juicing is a time-consuming process, so youll probably be thinking to yourself, I wonder if I can juice first thing in the morning, and then drink it later? This is not a good idea. Vegetable juice is HIGHLY perishable so its best to drink all of your juice immediately.

However, if youre careful, you can store it for up to 24 hours with only moderate nutritional decline. This is really helpful if you are bringing your juice to work with you so you can consume it during the day.

Put your juice in a glass jar with an airtight lid and fill it to the very top. There should be a minimum amount of air in the jar as the oxygen in air (air is about 20 percent oxygen) will oxidize and damage the juice.

Purchase a food vacuum pump like Food Saver with an Ball jar attachment. You can pour your juice into a pint jar and put the lid on and use the Food Saver to suck out the air in the jar to vacuum pack it. This will remove most of the oxygen that will damage the juice.

Immediately store it in the fridge and consume it when you are ready. It is best to drink it as soon as possible and in any case within 24 hours of juicing.

Most people juice in the morning, but if that does not work out well for your schedule, please feel free to choose whatever meal works best for your lifestyle.

Some of the many more reasons to start vegetable Juicing:

Extract more nutrients from raw vegetables.

Normalizing the Alkaline Ph for your body.

Vegetables are not a complete meal

It is important to note that vegetable juice has very little protein and virtually no fat so by itself it is not really a complete food. It really should be used in addition to your regular meals not in place of it.

So unless you are undergoing some special fasting or detoxification program it is probably unwise to use juicing as a meal replacement. Ideally it can be consumed with your meal or as a between meal snack.
