Three Vegetable Juices from Gourmande in the Kitchen Drinking Your Veggies | A Trio of Juice Recipes

One of the most frequently asked questions about juicing is “why not eat your vegetables instead of juicing them?”  The problem is that most of us just don’t eat enough of them and juicing is an easy way to increase your intake.  That doesn't mean you shouldn't eat them, it means you should do both if you can.

Store bought juices are not the same thing; most are laden with added sugars and preservatives, those that aren't have most likely been pasteurized.  Manufacturers pasteurize juices to prevent spoilage, but the process of heating the juice can destroy the availability of some of the vitamins and enzymes so fresh, raw juices are best.
Drinking freshly pressed vegetable juices along with eating a variety of vegetables provides our bodies with an abundance of raw materials and nutrients from which to thrive.

Green juices are king when it comes to juicing as they are both nutrient rich and low in sugar, but if you are hesitant to plunge into green drinks, root based juices are a naturally sweeter alternative that still pack a nutritional punch.  Start with carrot juice and gently ease your way over to spinach juice and other leafy greens.
These three colorful juices are an easy way to make juicing a habit .
