There is a lot controversy over juicing vs smoothies. Which one is better for you? Well,in my opinion, there is no right or wrong answer!
Juicing and smoothies both have their own unique benefits.
Let’s break it down…
- Great as a meal replacement or meal on the go
- Lower in citric acid
- Higher in fiber
- Great way to add protein into your daily diet
- Higher in raw vitamins
- Faster absorption of of vitamins
- Boosts energy
- Works in addition to regular diet
So, basically juice and smoothies are both great! Smoothies are a great meal replacement because you can add avocado or banana and a protein powder and ice or peanut butter or berries…or whatever, and have a complete meal. Juicing is best if it is not used as a meal replacement. Its is packed full of a variety of vitamins!
Juice should be mostly vegetables and only a little fruit. It is a great way to start your day. Drinking raw juice on an empty stomach ensures fast absorption of all the vitamins and nutrients. Think about it, could you sit down and eat 5 celery stalks, 4 carrots, a handful of kale and 2 green apples in one sitting? Probably not! Because of all the fiber you would fill up half way through that mountain of vegetables and fruit! Lots of fruits and vegetables work as natural cleanse, so drinking them on an empty stomach helps flush the liver and kidneys and digestive tract!
The combination possibilities for both juice and smoothies are endless, but here are my top 2 favorites!
- 1 lemon
- 3 kiwi
- 2 cucumbers
- 1 large bunch spinach
- 4 large kale leaves
- 1 avocado
- 1 scoop organic cacao
- 1 scoop plant based protein powder
- 1 tablespoon organic hemp
- 1 teaspoon PB2 Ice
- 1 cup coconut milk
Try it out! Make a smoothie on the go and have a healthy convenient breakfast! Or late at night if you get home too late for a heavy meal!
Give juice a try! Start your morning off with a boost of energy from all the vitamins from veggies and fruit instead of a second or third cup of coffee!
