There are many benefits of both juicing natural fruits and vegetable’s and blending them, here we get the best of both worlds! Fresh organic (and preferably locally grown) fruits and vegetables contain an abundance of micro nutrients, these micro nutrients include vitamins, minerals and other dietary compounds essential for normal body growth, development and function, in other words, your body was designed to work optimally when fed highly nutritious foods!
First I started with my juice:
4 med to large carrots and 2 small to med apples
after I have run them through my juicer I add the juice to my blender
Which had about 2 cups of fresh baby spinach, 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries, 1 tbsp flax seeds and about 4 or 5 ice cubes in it.
Blend it up until nice and smooth, you may need to add a little water to it to get the desired consistency!
Juicing is a great way to get a multitude of nutrients into one glass, and blending gives the added benefit of keeping the fiber of the fruits and vegetables in your cup!
