Juicing: A Guide for Beginners

Juicing: A Guide for Beginners

Fitness has become an obsession for many in recent years, and for good reason. The importance of staying healthy is simply undeniable. However, it is worth noting that there are actually a number of different ways to go about pursuing this goal. We are here to present one of the options available to you: juicing.

Most people don’t realize the benefits of this dietary approach, yet the movement is definitely on the rise as the buzz around it grows. Now, more and more people are starting to talk about juicing and the long-term health benefits it can bring. So be sure to keep reading to learn more!

What is Juicing?

Before anything else, we need to answer the most basic question: what is juicing. In a nutshell, juicing is refers to drinking your food. Of course, that is an oversimplified explanation of this diet. It shuns the use of commercially-made juices as these drinks are often filled with excessive amounts of sugar, artificial flavour, and preservatives which can result in health problems in the future.

Juicing focuses primarily on the process of extracting the natural liquids found in raw fruits and vegetables. This is so that you can enjoy all the precious vitamins, minerals, as well as the antioxidants, phytonutrients, anti-inflammatory compounds usually lost in regular diets. Basically, by juicing your food you are able to make the most of its nutritional value added

Health Benefits of Juicing

Drinking fresh juice, in the real sense of the word, is perhaps the most effective way to get all your nutritional needs. It lets you introduce a wide range of vitamins and nutrients into your diet with minimal effort. This is because juicing provides your body with the quickest way to absorb these healthy elements.

Presented below are just some of the health benefits brought by juicing:

  • Weight loss
  • Improved digestion
  • Enhanced mental clarity
  • Increased energy levels and improved productivity
  • Better sleep
  • Lowering of cholesterol and stress levels
  • Clearer skin
  • Better immunity system

Juicing for Weight Loss

For a lot of people, the prospect of losing weight is probably the main motivator behind their juicing. In this regard, we can confidently say that this is one of the best ways to do it. In fact, the people who have tried it report experiencing dramatic results as they started regularly incorporating juices and smoothies into their diet. So this doesn’t mean mixing your juice with any margarita mix!

This is something everyone should take note of. If you want to be healthier and lose weight, try juicing. This is primarily due to the fact that fresh fruits and vegetables naturally contain low levels of calorie. By doing so, you are able to make the most of your daily nutritional needs. So, at the end of the day, you get more nutrients for fewer calories.

On the other hand, readers should also note that vegetables and fruits are known to have a high concentration of nutrients and antioxidants. Both of these elements are vital as they nourish the body while also helping it cleanse by effectively getting rid of all the toxins it has stored up over the years.

If you are looking to switch to a healthier lifestyle, then you should definitely consider juicing.

Book Review: The Handmaid’s Tale

Book Review: The Handmaid’s Tale

The Handmaid’s Tale revolves around Offred and her life as Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She inhabits a world where women are no longer allowed to read, nor do they have control over their own bodies. She resides in the home of the Commander and his wife where her one of her duties is to provide the couple with a child. Every month, she is made to endure her ‘duty’ as a viable ovary in an age where the rate of births are at a decline and the value of a woman is judged primarily on her ability to bear children.

That premise alone should give readers an idea of what to expect from Margaret Atwood’s magnum opus. It offers a scathing look at the patriarchy and our culture at large by offering readers a look at a grim dystopia of what we could become. Like other works in this genre, the Handmaid’s Tale provides readers with a cautionary tale and an urgent challenge.

As you probably know, this book has since been adapted into an award-winning TV show. Yet, we highly recommend that you read the source material as well.

Book Review: Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad

Book Review: Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad

Back in 2011, Jennifer Egan wrote a Pulitzer Award-winning novel called A Visit from the Goon Squad. What we find most interesting is that this book, aside from being a novel with its own defined plot and direction, serves as a collection of narratives. The novel balances this complex narrative style perfectly and that is one of the reasons why this is such a great read agreed

In a nutshell, we can say that the Goon Squad is ultimately about lives – our own and those around us. It perfectly captures the fact that our life is both fleeting and whimsical, that we who we are now is not necessarily who we would eventually become. Our ideas of people, how we neatly put labels on them, may not be accurate as the people we once knew may be dead, or rather they have become someone else.

Of course, such a description may make it seem like this book is one dredged in sadness, misery, and depression. However, we assure you that it most definitely is not. It is clever, to say the least, and refreshing. So, be sure to pick it up.
