Juicing to Supplement Fruits and Vegetables in Diet
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Finding it hard to get the recommended five-six servings of fruits and veggies you need every day? Try getting creative, and start juicing.
"One of the things I love about juicing is that it really gives you the opportunity to have five or six or seven different fruits and vegetables in one juice, which is wonderful," registered dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick said. "The more variety, the more vitamins and minerals you get."
Juicing should not replace eating whole fruits and vegetables, but should only supplement it; and if you decide to juice, maximize your health benefits by leaving the skin of the fruits and veggies on.
But be warned; when juicing, you are bound to get more concentrated sugars, so just take that into consideration when planning the rest of your diet.
