I have picked up the juicer today and juiced the veggies that I had. I am feeling more energy a few hours later. This is really a great feeling!
Juicing definitely gives me energy and I would not go without it in trying to feel healthy and in gaining more energy! My juicer was not a waste of money and has been worth every cent! More than any vitamin or supplement, I believe fruits and vegetables in their natural form is the best medicine that there is on the planet! Organic is best but I do what I can in using whatever I have.
I have read that spinach is one of those veggies that you should steam before juicing if you have low-thyroid so that’s what I did.
I had made a salad beforehand with spinach, lettuce, mushrooms and organic carrots. I wanted to juice up a few leftover’s in my produce drawer in the fridge today so I picked out the spinach and steamed it. I began juicing and after a few minutes the spinach was steamed and I threw it into a large tupperware container and then into the freezer for a quick cooling down. Then I juiced it with what I had been juicing already.
I use Kerr jars that I fill to the top usually by adding a little water to stretch my produce budget and to keep the air out of my juice so it lasts longer. Of course I keep them in the refrigerator so I have a few to drink later that day and for a day or two later. You can juice ahead this way and not have to juice every day if you don’t want to.
