"Juicy" Tips for Vegetarians

If you find that you are not eating enough vegetables on a daily basis, you might want to think about consuming them in drinks. Of course, it is more convenient to puchase vegetable juice already made however it is ideal that you create your own juices for more health benefits and you will also find that investing in a juicer will certainly pay off in the long run.

Here are a few ideas to create your own vegetables juices:

1) Carrot juice is probably the most popular flavor to drink. You can mix a variety of other vegetables such as celery, cucumbers, spinach, and kale with carrots. Also, try seasoning with some garlic and ginger that will give you something different for your taste buds. For a sweeter taste a sprinkle of cinnamon might just be the thing you need to satisfy your sweet tooth. No matter what you add to this drink just keep in mind that carrots are a wonderful source of beta-carotene and vitamin C.

2) Another very popular vegetable juice is Tomato. If you are looking for a different twist to plain tomato juice try blending celery, parsley, cucumber, and broccoli. You can experiment with other vegetables such as spinach and kale and keep in mind that the more vegetables you add the heatlhier the drink will be because of the nutrients that all these vegetables offer.

You can also use your imagination to come up with more creative recipe ideas for juicing vegetables. Preparing vegetable drinks is one of the best ways that you can take them in their raw state. It is best that you drink your juices fresh every time which means that you prepare them just before drinking. If you should have any juice leftover just remember that you must keep your juices preferably in canning jars in the refrigerator for no more than 3 days.
