5 Ways to Stay in Shape
Any time of the year is a good time to start juicing.
The health benefits of drinking fruit and vegetable juice are numerous, ranging from improving your digestive health to increasing your body’s ability to repair itself and bolstering your immune system.
However, as with any new routine, sticking to your juicing habit can be hard. Follow these 8 tips to help make juicing a part of your daily routine for years to come.
1. Set up a juicing plan
One of the most common mistakes people make when starting a juicing lifestyle is failing to account for the extra effort. In order to make your juice both effective and sanitary, you need to wash your ingredients and cut them to the appropriate size for your machine. Most people don’t have the time to do this in the morning, so consider prepping the night before. Even if you chop up all of your veggies and fruits the night before, you still need to plan for the time to make the juice and clean your machine in the morning. Wake up a few minutes earlier to give yourself more time in the morning and keep the process as stress-free as possible.
2. Stock up on the (right) ingredients
Another pitfall that leads new juicer to abandon the process is a simple lack of ingredients. If you’re all ready to make your juice, but you don’t have any leafy greens or fruits, it makes the entire process harder than it needs to be. Make sure you keep a fresh supply of fruits and vegetables in your fridge before you plan to make you juice so that you can focus on solidifying the habit instead of the obstacles in front of you.
