Mother Nature has blessed us with a large number of nutritious elements consuming which we can become healthy and live a diseases free life. But in order to make use of these elements we will first have to identify their entity and then prepare them in a way that they provide maximum benefits to our body and health. It is not difficult to identify the source of these nutritious elements since man has been experimenting with food for the last few centuries and now we know the foods that are good for health and ones that are poor. Doctors and dietitians state that different types of fruits and vegetables are the richest source of nutrients and by consuming them in high quantities we can not only replenish our nutritional needs but also keep deadly diseases at bay.
However, in order to get the maximum benefit from fruits and vegetables we must start consuming them raw and avoid cooking as heat reduces the nutritional value of natural food items. The best way to consume fruits and vegetables without cooking is by making their salad or juice. Here in this article we will discuss about the various kinds of nutritious juices you can prepare by using fruits and vegetables. But before that you must buy a good juicer or blender for the purpose of making delicious juices. We recommend a blender over a juicer since blender made juice will retain all the fiber and the juice will be thicker like a vegetable puree or a smoothie. Therefore, you don’t have to spend extra bucks on buying a juicer and you can make juice with your blender. In case you want juice that is light on thickness, you can pour some cold water in the blender along with the ingredients and your healthy juice will be ready.
