This year National Fresh Squeezed Juice Week is celebrated January 15th – January 21rd.
Whether you keep it plain and simple or want to mix it up with combinations, we’ve put together a list of options and their benefits:
Apples: Apples contain various mineral nutrients including boron, which may promote healthy bones. Keep in mind that despite having health benefits, apple juice is high in sugar but lacks the fiber content of apples.
Beets: Beets are a good source of antioxidants, and don’t forget the green leaves: Beet greens actually have even more iron than spinach as well as a higher nutritional value overall than the beetroot itself
Blueberries: Blueberries are repeatedly ranked as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities. Other berries like raspberries and strawberries are also a healthy choice for juices.
Cabbage: Cabbage is a smart juice ingredient due to its high water and vitamin C content.
Carrots: Carrots are full of beta-carotene and because of their sweetness they make a good partner to ingredients like kale or wheatgrass.
Celery: Celery has a high water content and is a good way to get extra potassium, vitamin C, and beta-carotene in your diet.
Kale: Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables around and has exceptional nutrient richness. Kale can be a bit strong for some so you can use spinach instead.
Lemon: Lemons are an alkalizing fruit that help counteract the affects of acidity on the body. They also contain vitamin C and flavonoids.
Orange: Oranges have a high concentration of vitamin C and also supplies flavonoids, potassium, thiamin, and folate.
Pineapple: Pineapple is packed with vitamins and minerals and is good for maintaining strong and healthy bones due to presence of manganese
Tomato: Tomatoes offer essential vitamins, such as A and K, and all of the B vitamins. They also contain iron, magnesium, and phosphorous.
