Diet & Nutrition > Foods > Juices

Special treats and internal cleansing

Please do not confuse juices with puree!!

Juices are extracted from the fruit or vegetable, and all the pulp or fibre is discarded so you drink a large quantity of refined nutrition without the bulky fibre to support it. Puree contains the entire fruit or veggie and is the healthier option.

Juices

  1. Extracted fruit and juices contain high levels of sugar and even when made from fresh organic fruits or veggies, should be used sparingly.
  2. Commercial fruit and veggie juices are usually made from reconstituted juice containing high levels of sugar and they may also contain potentially harmful additives that are used to enhance the flavour or act as preservatives.

Eating a whole fruit or vegetable is better than drinking the juice, but if you must and really fresh juice is a treat, extract the juice yourself.  Drink it mouthful by mouthful – slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

Purees

Here you eat the entire fruit or vegetable and purees help by reducing the workload of your stomach. Simply clean and put the entire fruit or veggie to your blender, usually with some water to make it liquid and blend. 

Drink it mouthful by mouthful and chew, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

Combinations


There are hundreds of combinations and here are a few favourites:

  1. 1 carrot, 1 apple and ginger to taste
  2. 1 Apple, 1 orange with a pinch of cinnamon
  3. 1 Carrot, a bunch of spinach and ginger to taste - I like a piece about half the size of my thumb.
  4. 1 carrot, 1 beetroot and ginger to taste
  5. As above with vegetable and nuts or seeds - but too many nuts or seeds can be fattening.
  6. Apple, carrot and beetroot (red beet), a famous Juice power mix.

As you experiment, you'll get some interesting colours, but don't let the colours put you off.

Notes:

  1. pure juices will contribute to attention deficit disorders in children
  2. for young children give only small amounts and
  3. baby puree usually needs to be cooked.
