Power Spring Juices
Spring is here, and that means it is time to shift your plant-based ingredients to ones that are in season – doing so is cheaper, healthier, and more accessible – so be sure not to miss out on spring’s most delectable fruits and vegetables. The reasons are plenty:
When produce is in season locally, the abundance of the crop makes it less expensive. It comes down to the basic idea of supply and demand – if a crop is in season, there will be more of it (and it will likely be local), making it a more financially-rewarding purchase than if you were to buy it during any other season.
Besides, when produce is grown in its proper season and under the appropriate growing conditions, it can express all of its natural nutrients. Meanwhile, seasonal fruits and vegetables don’t have to travel so far to get to your local market or grocery store, so they don’t lose their vital nutrients. Cutting down on travel time also saves gas!
Seasonal fruits and vegetables also taste better! Crops can fully ripen before being picked, making them a lot more delicious to the discerning palate.
Raw fruit and vegetable juices are excellent immune system fortifiers, especially critical now. Talk to your doctor about it, and build a plan to ensure you stay safe and healthy during the pandemic. Nowadays, it’s critical to get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, and boost the immune system with freshly made juices rich in vitamins – preferably with vegetables such as beets, spinach, carrots and radishes which are super detoxifying, minerals, and essential phytochemicals such as flavonoids, which are known to be powerful antiviral agents.
