For a long time I have been hearing about how great juicing is. Juicing is supposed to be a good way to get all of your vitamins, minerals and nutrients from fruits and vegetables in an easy to drink and convenient form. I have heard about what amazing health benefits can be derived from juicing.
Juicing pulverizes the fruit and vegetables so that when you drink it, the fruit and vegetables are already partially processed and your body doesn’t have to waste precious energy on processing the food. The vitamins and minerals in the fruits and vegetables are supposed to be very bio-available and easy for the body to digest and process. So with juicing, ideally you get to take advantage of all of the vitamins and minerals and nutrients that the fruits and vegetables have to offer.
I just didn’t want to spend $500 on a juicer. So when a friend of mine told me about the green monster, I was intrigued.
You’ve heard the saying you are what you eat.
Well, it might just be more true than you think.
It is easy to scare people with the unknown. Even if you have training in exercise or nutrition they can be confusing, intimidating, and create a sense of the unknown.
To complicate matters, there are many charlatans and snake oil salesmen who create misinformation to sell people their usually worthless, products.
