I love juicing... occasionally. Mainly to use up the fruit & veg from the fridge but also to get a lovely injection of micronutrients which I could do by eating all of this in one sitting, as then I would be able to enjoy the fibre it provides, however, could you eat all of this in one go?! That’s why occasionally, a juice is good. Treat it like a mega dose multivitamin. As look at what this lot provides!
BEETROOT: folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C.
CUCUMBER: vitamin K, molybdenum, pantothenic acid, copper, potassium, manganese, vitamin C, phosphorus, magnesium, biotin and vitamin B1.
ORANGE: vitamin C, thiamine (vitamin B1), folate (vitamin B9) and potassium.
CELERY: riboflavin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate (vitamin B9), potassium and magnesium.
Vitamin C is the buzzword at the moment, but you need not stress about it. One whole orange provides more than your daily recommended dose of vitamin C, adults are recommended to have 40mg a day, (a 100g orange can provide you with around 53mg). You can’t store it in your body, therefore you need to eat it daily - from eating lots of fruit and veg! You shouldn’t need to supplement but if you don’t have access to fresh fruit and veg, then ask a nutrition professional (me in a few months!) and they can guide you on what to take and how much if you need it. Too much (more than 1000mg per day) can give you runny poos, stomach ache and wind, so be careful if you are self supplementing. Always best to do it with food first! You can’t out supplement (or train) a bad diet!
Food first. Always. I also hear that @juicewarrior
juices are amazing.
Happy Friday everyone and hope you are all staying safe x
