The Great Debate
Ok, so you’re clear on what side of the Twilight debate you are on (Team Edward, duh)…..but maybe you are still on the fence about which green drink side to join…..Team Juice or Team Blending? Well Roots blog is here to clear things up for you.
So, just what is the difference? Juicing separates the juice from the fiber while blending blends all the produce together, fiber and all (smoothies!).
Juicing provides an instant infusion of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients to your bloodstream. When fiber is removed, your digestive system is given a much needed break and your cells can focus on rest and repair! It makes the nutrients more readily absorbable to the body in larger quantities than if you were to eat the fruits and vegetables whole or blended into a smoothie.
But fiber is no bad guy by any means!! In fact, it is absolutely necessary! Green smoothies have their own unique place in our diets. They can support digestive health by sweeping toxins through the digestive tract and aiding in regular….ahem…..elimination. They can satisfy hunger and help sustain energy over time.
So basically, there is no juice vs smoothie debate really. They are friends. There is no need to decide! It’s like Sex and the City…..if you’re needing tough love advice, you would go to Miranda. If it’s warm, fuzzy advice you are seeking, Charlotte’s your gal. Go see Samantha if…….actually just don’t.
So if you’re needing a rush of nutrients in a hurry, grab a juice! If you’re needing a meal replacement, grab a green smoothie!
Here @ Roots Juices, we got pretty much every nutrient you need in juice form. So grab the gals and replace your nightly cosmo with a cocktail of nutritious proportions!
