Super pear juice!

The humble pear is a delicious fruit and is also a great source of fiber. Pears are also great for juicing! They contain pectin which is a soluble fiber that acts as pre-biotic in the intestines. These pre-biotics feed the healthy gut bacteria which results in an overall better digestion and health, and best of all, the soluble fibers are also contained in your fresh juice. These fibers are the reason your juice will be a little thick.

Pears give a great taste to any juices, especially recipes containing greens and other vegetables. For best results when juicing make sure you choose a pear that is hard and not soft and mushy as this will not juice well at all and are better for blending.

In early fall pears grow here in my country of Norway and a lot of people have them in their own backyards. Do pears grow in your county and if so what kinds? Let me know in the comment section:)

Juice Yourself Healthy!

I love juicing and it has really turned both my health and career around. I discovered juicing for about 7 years ago and when I added just one or two juices to my diet my energy levels sored, my digestion became so much better and cravings for sweets disappeared.

Did you know that a humble little apple contains cancer- fighting malic acid, anti-aging quercitin, B vitamins, vitamin C and so much more? Kale may help us fight cancer and ginger and beets help detoxify the liver and blood. Nature  has the answers to our health problems…

Depending upon which country you live in, the government recommends a certain portion of fruits and vegetables to be consumed every day. In Norway and most other European countries it is recommended to eat at least “5 a day” which consist of 2 fruits and 3 vegetables. In the USA the government recommends at least “9 a day” and in Japan they recommend “17 a day”!

Asian countries have traditionally shown lower rates of cancer, particularly breast cancer and prostate cancer which are typical lifestyle diseases related to what we eat and how we live.

By juicing your fruits and vegetables on a daily bases it is so easy, tasteful, and quick to drink broccoli, sprouts, ginger, lemons, apples and so much more. And I personally guarantee it will give you such an increase in your life quality. It will simply make you burst with energy!

Juicing also releases more of the nutrients “locked” within the pulp and underneath the skin of the produce so when juiced all of this is released ensuring your juice is full of cell building nutrients. Juicing is also a great way to ensure your children’s diets are healthy and that they receive the correct building blocks (together with omega 3) for healthy brain development and to build a strong immune system preventing disease.

Remember that allergies and food intolerances are a growing problem in our society and we have the power to both reverse and prevent them through our diet and lifestyle. Give them fresh pressed juice every day and they will be well prepared for a long and healthy life.
