Do I juice or blend?

Yes, and you should try it too.

Juicing extracts the liquid part of the fruit or vegetable and you’re left with a watery, but concentrated liquid that contains vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.

I try to do a mini detox 4-5 times a year, and that’s when I do the most juicing. I focus on juicing 80% vegetables and 20 % fruit. I also include lots of water and herbal, non-caffeinated teas during a detox.

With blending, the whole fruit or vegetable is used. What you put in the blender is what you consume. So, it’s a thicker consistency due to the pulp and fibre. Breakfast smoothies are my favourite. I add blueberries, protein powder, ice, and almond milk.

With blending (smoothies) you retain the fibre, which can help you feel fuller and improve your digestive health. You can also add nuts, seeds, and yoghurts to your smoothies to increase your intake of healthy protein and fats. It will have a thicker consistency, and it’s a great way to start your day.
