Vegetable nutrition is an essential part of our daily diet. Love vegetables or hate them we need them for good health. Even the Egyptians and Romans cultivated artichokes, radishes, beans, onions and garlic.
We are so lucky today because no matter where in the world we live or where a vegetable is grown, we can walk into any supermarket and buy it - whatever time of the year it is.
We all know we should be eating 5-a-day but when it comes to the reality, how many of us actually do? Yet it's so easy - if we include juices and smoothies to our diet every day.
Lose weight -
Juices and smoothies are not only good for us but they are a great way and a delicious way to lose weight.
By replacing a juice with a meal you will see the difference it makes not only to your weight but to your health and energy levels. Vegetable juices are so low in calories you can drink as much as you like. They can be drunk safely by most people even diabetics.
Dieticians will all agree that vegetable nutrition is one of the key elements to good health. They contain so many vitamins which help protect our bodies and fight off disease.
Vitamins and minerals -
Always eat/juice fresh vegetables as like fruit
they are brimming over with our main source of vitamin C, B, A, and E. They also contain calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium.
Cooking or juicing? -
By cooking, you are killing or disabling some of the vital ingredients inside plants which is one of the reasons why juicing is so good because we can use and enjoy raw vegetables the way they were made to be eaten. Another good reason to juice is that we use the whole fruit. When we peel plants we are unnecessarily removing vegetable nutrition.
Not keen on veg? -
Juicing is a great way to eat vegetables, especially if you are not keen on them. This web-site has some delicious vegetable juices which you can try. By juicing you will be able to digest all the vital vitamins and minerals to retain good health. But, and there's always a but, to anything pleasurable, we must also include the whole vegetable plant in our diet to acquire fibre which is so important to good digestion and also protects us from diseases such as cancer.
Store veg -
Limp vegetables are dying and have lost a lot of the goodness of the living vegetable. Buy fresh organic if you can and store them in a cool dark place as sunlight and heat will cause your vegetables to go stale.
