Fresh Drinks for a Healthy Diet

When you follow a diet plan, you lose not only fat tissues but also reduce your intake of required minerals and vitamins. Any loss of nutrients can be balanced with fresh juices.

If you choose to substitute one meal with a fresh juice, you shouldn’t drink anything else before or after. This way, your body will benefit from all the vitamins, enzymes and minerals provided by the fruits and vegetables.

How do you prepare fresh juices?

When preparing fresh juices, don’t peel the vegetables or the fruits because you will lose many nutrients. However, there are exceptions to this rule. Cucumber’s peel is bitter, and you should take it away. Remove all the seeds and cores. Cut the fruits into small pieces, put them into the blender and mix them. Add one teaspoon of olive oil. You can also add one teaspoon of apple vinegar. This ingredient reduces your appetite and helps eliminating toxins. One teaspoon of lemon juice is also helpful. Lemon is an excellent source of vitamin C and increases fat burnings.
