Author: Ryan Terry, flow catering
Whether you are trying to pack more veggies or fruit into your diet, or looking for a fun new drink recipe to serve to your friends on the patio, making your own juice is most certainly a good way to do this. Fresh juice is a raw, live food that’s high in enzymes, and it’s absolutely brimming with nutrients that are well absorbed by the body. The juicer does all the work of breaking down the fruits and veggies, so juicing is excellent for anyone with any sort of digestive issue. It has been said that juicing fruits and vegetables is not only a wonderful way to increase the amount of nutrients from raw foods in your diet, it may even reduce inflammation and potentially heal numerous ailments. The great thing about having a juicer, is one can go ahead and buy a cart full of fresh fruits and veggies without having to worry about waste. If you don’t get around to eating the other half of that cantaloupe – just juice it instead! If you’re not sure about making a commitment to buying a juicer, just come down to the café and try our juice of the day and taste the difference fresh juice will make in your life.
