Juice plant-foods and you’ll benefit from an almost instant immune boost for the system!

There are few things in life that give you such a rapid infusion of nutrients whilst making you feel so vibrant and alive! Given the incredible benefits that juicing can bring it really needs to find it’s way right to the top of our priority list. In my experience, drinking fresh vegetable juice actually frees up energy and gives me more time to do the things I love!

Do I need a juicer to juice vegetables and fruits?

Anything beyond citrus fruits, requires a juicer. Luckily, there are lot’s of juicers available these days to suit every budget.

The two main types of juicers are as follows…

Centrifugal juicers

The most common and inexpensive type of juicer is known as the centrifugal juicer. This juicer is designed to push hard fruits and vegetables through a meshed chamber, where the flesh is rapidly separated from the juice. Centrifugal juicers are the cheapest options available. They tend to leave more pulp than the masticating juicers (see below) and are rather loud. Having said that, they are however, an excellent option if you want to get into juicing and have a tighter budget (or just want to dip your toes in). 

Masticating juicers

Masticating juicers effectively chew vegetables and hard fruits for you, producing a high quality cold pressed juice. With a slower more sophiscticated action, they squeeze out more of the juice than centrifugal juicers. This is especially helpful with greens and herbs. Masticating juicers are generally more expensive than the centrifugal versions, although I got a model for about £100 recently (after leaving my model at my boyfriends house during the virus lockdown lol!). I am super happy with it, and would recommend it if you need a suggestion. Here it is… Slow Masticating Aicok Juicer UK

One medium sized carrot (about 75g) is said to give you a whopping 210% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for immune function, vision, reproduction, skin health and cellular communication. Read all about carrots here: Health Benefits of Carrots

Immune-boosting Carrot and Turmeric Juice

Yield: 1 large glass
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Super immune-immune boosting ingredients, juiced. Carrot, fresh tumeric, fresh ginger, apple and lemon.

Ingredients

  • 3 large organic carrots
  • 1.5 cm cubed fresh turmeric
  • 1.5 cm cubed fresh ginger
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 large apple

Instructions

  1. Use organic ingredients so that you don't have to peel anything (except the lemon) - whilst benefiting from a healthier hit of nutrients. If there is soil on your carrots or spices, then do clean that off.
  2. Slice and discard the outer peel of the lemon (it will taste super lemony and unpleasant if you juice with peel intact).
  3. Cut up everything to fit in the feeder of your juicer (size will depend on your juicer).
  4. Feed though.
  5. Enjoy immediately for best benefits.

Notes

If you don't have fresh tumeric get dried turmeric instead, this will also work a treat!
