After watching a terrifying news segment on the amount of sugar in seemingly healthy food items I wanted to go back to basics and basically know everything I was eating! I was curious about the benefits of introducing fresh home made juice in to my daily routine. Please note, I was not undertaking juicing as a tool for weight loss (although you can go on a "juice fast" if you wish) I was more curious about the health benefits and juicing for general well being. The main benefit of juicing is that you are getting all the vitamins and nutrients directly from their raw natural source, they aren't being affected by cooking or additives etc. So they are kind of like a super juice if you like!
Off I went, researching away on the Argos website. I was lucky enough to have a stash of nectar points that I had been saving for a rainy day, so I was able to invest in a relatively high end juicer. Personally I would definitely recommend this Phillips juicer, it is a seriously powerful piece of kit! In go huge chunks of pineapple with their impossibly hard outer skin still attached....and voila! In a couple of seconds the most deliciously smooth pineapple juice - with no bits - appears.
Since I have been juicing I have definitely noticed an improvement in my skin, energy levels and general well being. Also the juices are genuinely really tasty! So are a welcome addition in to my daily routine. I'm always uploading photos of my creations to my instagram: missemmacharlotte so feel free to follow me on there!
