When it comes to eating vegetables, people often get different types of advice from the health experts. In the past, you’ve been told that the most ideal way to consume veggies is by eating them raw to ensure one gets all the nutrients they provide. Or if cooking them was needed, the best way to keep the nutrients is to cook them in a quick manner such as by blanching them. This has changed, though, as the latest trend that’s gained popularity is juicing the veggies.
While many people, particularly the health buffs, believe this process gives more benefits than eating whole fruits and vegetables, the experts say there is no big difference. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages but both are definitely healthy ways of consuming one’s daily dose of vegetables.
It Provides the Nutrients
Fruits and vegetables, regardless of how you consume them, have loads of vitamins and minerals. Juicing them is just one of the ways of meeting your daily nutritional requirements. It’s not only best for old people who may have difficulty chewing whole or sliced veggies but for kids and adults as well who love their greens.
