If you want to begin juicing, it is useful to have good advice. Following these juicing techniques will get you off to the right start. Juicing can be easy and fun if you use these tips.

The best kind of juicer is a masticating juicer. These juicers have a more gentle method of extracting juice, which helps the liquid maintain more of its nutrients. Also, the juice you get from this type of juicer can be stored longer because it’s more stable.

If you are preparing a drink of dark, leafy greens, be sure to add some cucumber. Most leafy greens will have a strong and somewhat unpleasant flavor. A bit of cucumber can add a light refreshing taste that will improve the flavor of the leafy greens. Use unpeeled cucumber for essential nutrients.

TIP! Buy a masticating juicer. This type of juicer is gentle on the ingredients, leading to a juice which contains all the nutrients it possibly can.

One good way to up the health benefits of any juice you make is to add a darker green vegetable to the mix. Juices ought to be comprised of somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4 chard, broccoli, spinach or related items. Make the rest of your juice using fruit you like for a great taste.

Drink slowly, and enjoy the unique characteristics each juice has. Each juice will have its own flavors, so take the time to enjoy them. Allow your saliva to mix with the juice, and start the process of digestion.

Think of your juice as a whole meal. When you find out how much food goes into a glass of juice after preparing it several times, you will understand why this is so. If you drink your juice by itself, your body will absorb its nutrients more quickly.

TIP! If you’re creating juice for any health reasons, try adding dark leafy greens to them. The juices should be 50 or 75% spinach, broccoli, chard, or other green for the best health benefits.

Juicing vegetables is another way for you to get your kids excited about healthy foods. The average child does not find vegetables appealing. So instead of forcing the vegetables on them, you can juice some fruits as well as vegetables and combine the juices. They will enjoy drinking the juice and not even realize that they are consuming vegetables.

Keep your juicer on your counter and in your sight at all times. This makes you more aware of it, which guarantees that you will be motivated to use it more frequently. By having the juicer displayed prominently, you will find it easier to juice every day.

Before you create any concoctions, do some research on your fresh produce. Different foods offer different benefits for your body; some are high in vitamin C, whereas another item might be rich in antioxidants. After you know which produce offers what, you can create a blend of juices that meets a variety of your nutritional needs. Not only will your body benefit from all the healthy nutrients you’ll take in, but your palate might also enjoy some of the blends you’ll be tasting.

TIP! When you drink juice for health, try using leafy greens like chard, broccoli, spinach, kale, parsley and more. For the healthiest juices, use mostly greens and then add other vegetables or fruit for flavoring.

Choose a juicer which is simple to take apart and clean. All the time you have to spend assembling your juicer or cleaning it out when you are finished can discourage you from using the juicer at all. You will have to take the time out to clean your juicer whenever you use it, though, to ensure that no mold begins to grow and the blade stays sharp.

Cranberries can help with bladder problems or urinary tract infections. This works best if started soon after the initial signs of discomfort.

As you get older, you may notice that you start to feel fatigued and sore. If so, you should consider adding more juice to your diet. Juicing can provide great health benefits such as relieving joint pain, boosting memory and even preventing free radical damage to cells.

TIP! Think of your juice as a whole meal. Once you know exactly how much food goes into a single glass of juice, it will be easy to see that you can drink it in place of a meal.

Masticating juicers are nice juicers to have. This type of juicer offers additional options like puree, grinding, and even freezing. These added features will increase the variety of juices that can be created.

Cucumbers can be juiced to provide nutrients especially good for hair growth and healthy skin. The benefits come from the abundance of silica in cucumbers. Silica is not only good for skin and hair, it is also good for bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles.

Juicing can give you more nutrients that can boost your body’s health. The juice from the fruits and vegetables gives you energy, and provides certain proteins that you need to efficiently build up muscles. If your exercise routine is on the harder side, opt for vegetables and fruits that replenish electrolytes after your workout, and whey protein powder can be added to help rebuild muscle fibers.

TIP! As soon as you are done making your juice, thoroughly wash your juicer. The juice of certain fruits and veggies can stain the juicer and its parts.

Using the suggestions here will get you started with a healthy juicing program. Keep a copy of the content you’ve read handy, or take some quick notes, so you can remember what you’ve learned. By following this advice, you can ease juicing into your daily life.

Making a Baked Sweet Potato in the oven is so easy and comes out perfectly sweet and fluffy on the inside with this foolproof recipe.

 

Roasting sweet potatoes in the oven brings out their natural flavor and sweetness. There is no need to add syrup or marshmallows to them; they are perfectly sweet on their own. If your busy and working all day, I also love making them in the crock pot, with this Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Recipe –just dump them in, set it and forget it.

Baked sweet potatoes are the perfect, healthy side dish in the fall months. They are also great stuffed as a main dish, like this Vegetarian Loaded Sweet Potato Chili and Sloppy Joe Baked Sweet Potato.  If you like to simply eat it with some butter on top, a little goes a long way or try it with coconut oil to keep it dairy free. To save calories, omit all together and try sprinkling on cinnamon, cumin, chili powder or even pumpkin spice.

Are sweet potatoes healthy?

Sweet potatoes are a whole food that pack a powerful nutritional punch. In one medium potato, you get over 400 percent of your daily vitamin A requirement. They are also high in fiber and potassium and are a great source of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that gives orange fruits and vegetables their vibrant color.

Tips

When buying sweet potatoes, avoid sweet potatoes with soft skin or wrinkles, cracks, or soft spots. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 3 to 5 weeks.

Garlic Lovers Roast Beef is my family’s favorite roast beef recipe, so flavorful and loaded with garlic as the name implies.

Vampires beware, there’s garlic in every bite of this garlic lover’s roast beef! And if that’s not enough garlic, I like to serve this with roasted broccoli with smashed garlic and garlic mashed potatoes because there’s never too much garlic in my house! Leftover roast beef make a great lunch the next day, some of my favorites are Roast Beef Sandwich with Melted Cheese and Caramelized Onions and Roast Beef Arugula and Shaved Parmesan on a Whole Wheat Baguette.

My family is always happy when they know roast beef is on the menu! And honestly, I love making roast beef on Sundays because it’s such an easy dinner and it always makes enough for leftovers. Making a perfectly juicy, medium-rare roast beef is easy with this foolproof recipe. The trick is to use an ovenproof meat thermometer such as this one (affiliate link) and you can’t mess up!

How To Make Perfect Roast Beef

  • Remove the roast from the refrigerator and let it stand room temperature, about 1 hour. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Salt the entire roast liberally with kosher salt and seasonings.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F and place the roast on a pan. Insert the ovenproof meat thermometer into the center of the roast and cook until your desired doneness: 135° to 140° for medium-rare, 150° for medium, and 155-160° for well done. I personally remove my roast beef from the oven when it reads 135° for medium-rare. The temperature will rise an additional 5 degrees as it rests.
  • Always let the roast rest 10-15 minutes before you cut it so that the juices distribute evenly.
  • Slice thin, across the grain and eat right away.

What cut of beef is best for roast beef?

  • Eye of Round Roast
  • Top Round Roast
  • Bottom Round Roast

If garlic isn’t your thing, you can also try this recipe for classic roast beef which is super easy and delicious as well.

Garlic Lovers Roast Beef

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 1 hr 15 mins

Rest Time: 1 hr

Total Time: 2 hrs 20 mins

Garlic Lovers Roast Beef is my family’s favorite roast beef recipe, so flavorful and loaded with garlic as the name implies.

  • 2-3 lb roast or eye round, all fat trimmed off
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, cut into thin slivers
  • olive oil spray, I used my misto
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 2 tsp dried chopped rosemary
  • meat thermometer
  • Remove the roast from refrigerator 1 hour before cooking to reach room temperature. Trim all the fat off the meat. Using a sharp knife, pierce meat about 1/2-inch deep and insert slivers of garlic in each hole, pushing all the way in. Lightly spray the meat with olive oil and season generously with salt, pepper and rosemary. Place the thermometer all the way into the center of the meat.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. When the oven reaches 350F, place the roast in a roasting pan and put in the oven.
  • Roast until the thermometer reads 130° for rare, 140° for medium rare, 150° for medium, and 155-160° for well done. Remove the roast from the oven and let it rest 10-20 minutes before you cut it so that the juices distributed evenly. I personally remove my roast beef from the oven when it is 135° for medium rare. The temperature will rise an additional 5 degrees as it sits.
  • Slice thin and serve.
