Drinks can be a great opportunity to incorporate nutrients into our diet, and fruit and vegetable juices are a very good way to ensure fiber in the day, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and water.
There are different ways to consume them, blended or by extractor.
The difference is that by extractor, the insoluble fiber is eliminated and you can take advantage of the juice of many vegetables that, due to their fibrous nature, are difficult to blend.
So choose those vegetables that are easy for you to use and most important of all is the FRUIT:VEGETABLE ratio.
It is very common to exceed sugars through a juice, if they are entirely fruit. One serving of fruit is equal to 1/2 cup (125 ml) of plain fruit juice.
If you drink 1 liter of juice (prepared fruit, for example grapefruit, orange, pineapple) that's about 4 servings of fruit in a single drink. And it would not be recommended.
The best option is to use one serving of fruit for three of vegetables.
1 FRUIT : 3 VEGETABLES
If you think that you consume few vegetables in your day, it is a very good way to start your mornings and ensure a good intake of fiber first thing in the morning and you will notice better digestion, energy, abdominal inflammation, etc.
IMPORTANT: It is not a fat burner, nor does it have purifying or detoxifying power
