As you keep drinking smoothies–rotating the recipes from the weeks before, add one juice per day, if possible. Or at least try it a couple of times, during the week.

I do hope that you continue drinking smoothies, and don’t treat the challenge as a temporary thing.

So today, I want to ask you a question:

Do you want to live to be a hundred, while still being full of energy, passion, and–most of all–healthy? Do you want your family to thrive?

You do?

If so, then you should look into adding juicing to your repertoire.

Now, I know what you may be thinking: “Is this really necessary? I’m already drinking green smoothies, and eating plenty of healthy fruits and veggies, why do I need juices? Aren’t they too much work, anyway? WHO HAS THE TIME FOR THAT?”

Yeah, I hear you. I had those thought too (especially the last one, believe me, I’ve been there!).

However, the undeniable fact is this. Juicing provides the most concentrated nutrition, in the form that’s easiest for our body to absorb.

The Pros of Juicing

The body works less to digest the nutrients. Juice, the liquid without the fiber, allows your digestive system to work less to extract the benefits. Fiber is indeed great and an important part of your regular diet. However, for people who want to really re-set their system, taking a finite break from fiber has the benefit of allowing your digestive system to have a bit of a rest.

More vegetables per glass. You can consume more vegetables and greens into a single glass of green juice than you would in a smoothie serving.

Some produce is much better for juicing, than blending. For example, root vegetables, such as sweet potatoes, carrots or parsnips, are better for juicing. Cabbage, broccoli, and other really dense veggies—are great in juices. They may be added to smoothies, but in small quantities only.

You can read more about Juicing Versus Blending in my post here.

To be clear, I am not referring to bottled juice you might find in the supermarket or even health food stores. Bottled juices are often convenient and less expensive than fresh pressed organic juice, but there are many reasons to avoid them. Bottled juices are loaded with added sugars. And because they are heated to 145° F/ 62.8° C to make them shelf stable, the valuable enzymes in these juices are deactivated and much of their nutritional value is lost. Various chemical additives are often used in the processing of bottled juices. And worse still, the water used to reconstitute bottled juices made from fruit concentrate is often tap water or water from industrial zoned areas. Fresh juices go right from the plant to your cells – with no alteration and nothing added.

If you don’t have a juicer and don’t want to invest money right now, perhaps you can borrow it from someone, or buy for cheap on Craiglist? I’m using Breville (centrifugal juicer, really fast and easy to use) and I also recommend Tribest Slowstar (masticating juicer, slower speed than Breville, which means higher quality juice, but more time consuming to use)

As for living to be a hundred– I get truly inspired by people, like Jay Kordich, who is now over 90 years old, the Father of Juicing and the author of School of Juicing, has been teaching for over 60 years (since the time he cured himself from cancer using the power of freshly made juice). In fact, most natural healing protocols, including the famous Gerson Institute, include green juice. So there you go!

Joanna
