Juice vs. Blending which is better? .
There are pros and cons to both juicing and blending. Juicing provides a very nutrient-dense beverage in a smaller amount of liquid. For those who need a low-fiber diet, juicing may be a better option. It’s important to note that the portion size of juice should be smaller than a blended beverage. Otherwise, you can get many calories from sugar in that cup of juice.With smoothies you retain the fiber, which can help you feel fuller and improve your digestive health. 🍎🍌🍋🍐🥝🍓🍊🍑🥒🥕 Some tips for juicing and/or blending: 🔹To prevent excess sugars, limit the fruit in both juices and smoothies to 1-2 servings per drink (i.e. ½ cup to 1 cup fruit)
🔹Green veggies like kale, spinach, parsley, and cabbage surprisingly do not taste very intense in smoothies or juice, so load up on those!
🔹Citrus, lime juice in particular, can help to cut out any bitter taste from vegetables (remember to remove the peels)
🔹When juicing, high water content vegetables like cucumbers and celery will help to add volume and nutrients
🔹When blending smoothies, add regular or coconut water to make it less pulpy
🔹You get what you pay for when buying a juicer or a blender: the current products claiming to have benefits over other standard blenders tend to have higher horsepower
