Starting A Raw Foods Diet? Start With These Juice Recipes
Many people have started to consider switching over to a raw foods diet to improve their health and fitness. Raw food is food that hasn’t been cooked, processed, microwaved, irradiated, genetically engineered, or exposed to pesticides or herbicides. Raw food is packed with natural enzymes and nutrients that help the body reach optimal health. Juicing these foods allow you to get all of the great health benefits of the food in an easily digested form.
One problem that many people beginning a raw foods diet encounter is disliking the bitterness of juice recipes that contain vegetables. The taste of these juices can be so off-putting to someone that is not used to them that it could make the person give up on juicing vegetables altogether. To soften the bitterness of fresh vegetable juices, many people choose to add carrots or apples to the recipe. In addition to increasing the nutritional content of the juice, carrots and apples have a way of smoothing out the bitterness in the juices they are added to, making them much more palatable.
Here are some great juice recipes to get you started.
