“Renew You” Challenge – This week’s weekly challenge is perfect for the upcoming holidays as a way to keep your weight in check, and your body energized!
Fresh fruit and vegetable juice is full of phytonutrients that nourish the body head to toe. But if you have a vegetable juicer, you know that it can be a time-consuming process to make juice everyday. Here’s a great tip that can help you reap the benefits of the hundreds of nutrients found in fruits and veggies, without having to take 30 minutes out of every day!
You’ll still have to commit to juicing, but only once every week or two. Buy a huge batch of fresh fruits and veggies. Try to get a rainbow of variety. And don’t forget those leafy greens and detoxifying cruciferous veggies like kale, broccoli and cauliflower. Go ahead and make a large portion of juice. Drink some right away, and save the rest to freeze in individual servings. You can even pour some into ice cube trays and add those to smoothies as you go.
It’s the next best thing to fresh, as many nutrients are conserved when frozen. And if you don’t have time to juice everyday, it’s a delicious way to get those nutrients in.
I’m not sure why, but when I freeze the juice I make, it seems to get much thicker upon thawing.
