Why I make my own Green Juice
It is common knowledge that we should include fresh fruit and vegetables in our diet every day, and that we should steer clear of prepared foods. My rule of thumb is that if it looks like a cabbage, then it must be a cabbage (please tell me if I’m wrong!). If it’s in a packet then goodness only knows what food it actually is. I am a scratch cook!
Although my husband and I have always eaten healthily, we noticed a couple of years ago that my son was eating fewer and fewer vegetables. And that made us worry.
So we bought a green juice machine and have been making our own fresh green juice everyday ever since.
Now nutritionists say that we should be consuming 9 portions of vegetables daily! I smile because I know that we are eating that amount and sometimes more! All raw and all fresh, and then of course we eat our cooked veg too!
Here’s a direct link to the juicer we bought, the Samson 6 in 1 Electric Wheatgrass Juicer
It’s easy to clean and very simple to use. You can make fresh pasta and sausages with it too! It copes very well with soft vegetables like spinach and wheatgrass. I highly recommend it.
