Juicing is an excellent way to get your nutrients and plenty of them because you can consume more juice than if you tried to eat all the fruits and vegetables whole. A lot of times you’ll hear that you should drink the juices on an empty stomach but some people can’t “stomach” that. My theory is Just Juice It and get the juice in you, even if you have to have a little food with it. Also, if you find you’re sensitive to the fruit juices, you might try some green drinks first or at least adding some spinach, kale or other vegetable to balance the drink. You can also add water to dilute the juice and lessen it’s natural sweetness.
