Juicing Vs Blending – So what’s the difference? (they aren’t the same thing).
Juicing is the process of extracting the nutrients, vitamins, enzymes and minerals from the fibre of fruits and veggies.
It’s highly bioavailable (meaning the nutrients can easily be absorbed into your system in minutes). Juices are extremely high in micronutrients, and contain soluble fibre.
To juice fruits and veggies you’ll need a Juicer.
The juicer I have used for 6+ years is the Oster Stainless Steel Juice Extractor. It’s a fast juicer and very budget friendly at only $80. And did I mention it has lasted me for 6+ years?! This juicer is very easy to use and clean, and is a great option if you are a beginner to juicing.
Blending is the process of blending the fibres of fruits and vegetables together to make a blend.
Blends are high in macronutrients and contain high amounts of insoluble fibre. To blend fruits and veggies you’ll need a Blender.
I was gratefully given a Vitamix as a gift and it’s the ‘Rolls Royce’ of blenders. Not only can you blend the most delicious drinks, but you can make nut butters, soups, pasta sauces, salad dressings, pestos – the list goes on an on. And you are protected by a 10 year warranty.
They are pricey so if you are buying a blender, just get the best option for you and your budget.
The most important thing is to just get started.
I really love juicing and blending. Both methods are an excellent way to flood your body with more of nature’s perfect nutrition.
What’s better for you comes down to your own preference.
Juicing provides the body with more micronutrients and you are able to use a wide range of fruits and veggies in a single juice.
Blending is fast and easy and very popular with people who have little time to clean a juicer.
Why not do a little bit of both?
If you are interested in blending, here are some recipes to get you started. Just a quick tip – treat your blend like a meal in a glass and drink it slowly, or you could get a stomach ache!
Have an amazing day and Keep Juicing!
