So the countdown to your summer holiday is on and you’re determined to look your best on the beach, so why not invest in yourself and add juicing to your daily regime? To start you off I’m sharing a firm family favourite my Super Green Juice Recipe.
Juicing is a great way to kick-start a healthier eating plan and a great way to encourage your kids to consume more fruit and veg.
I make and enjoy Juices and Smoothies on a daily basis. Sometimes twice a day! I will share with you every recipe as I go. My recipes generally start with a throw it all in and see what happens, and over time I know I love and tend to stick with the basics, occasionally adding a little extra along the way!

Which juicers are best?
There are plenty of juicing machines on the market depending on your needs, including the popular Nutribullet which I use for my smoothies.
You can choose from compact models if you’re short on space in your kitchen, or opt for a high spec model that extracts 100% off the juice in seconds. All look rather snazzy, with design and style being uppermost in most manufacturers minds.
But picking the right juicer at an affordable price can be a bit of a minefield, but once over that hurdle it’s a simple step in the right direction for both your body and health – and it helps that they can taste delicious!
What’s the difference?
As you browse the juicers available, you’ll notice that some machines are described as “centrifugal” or “fast” juicers, and others “slow” juicers. This refers to the method juicers use to extract the pulp from fruit and vegetables. Centrifugal juicers use fast-spinning metal blades, while slow juicers squeeze the fruit at a much slower speed.
Furthermore, there are pros and cons to both methods. Some people worry about the metal blades in centrifugal juicers producing heat, which might destroy some of the enzymes in fruit and veg as it’s juiced. I’m unaware of any concrete evidence to confirm this, though, and they do get the job done quickly and thoroughly. The choice is yours.
Slow juicing is more gentle and is designed to retain as many of the nutrients as possible. However, the obvious downside is the speed (although realistically, you’re losing just seconds). When comparing slow juicers and fast juicers, I recommend keeping an open mind and instead considering how each individual juicer performs.
My Philips has been going for years and has two speeds, unfortunately, they don’t make the exact version any longer, but there are a plethora of alternatives on the market!
