Step away from the chocolate: it’s time to ‘juice’!

Jo Spencer - Thursday, March 31, 2016

It has been the ‘buzzword’ of the past couple of years and juicing now seems to be all the rage. What better time to tuck into delicious, healthy and cleansing juices, than following a period of excess over the Easter break? It’s time to ‘step away from the chocolate’ and reach for the nutribullet instead!

The benefits of juicing:

You should know that more than 95% of the vitamins and enzymes our bodies need are found in the juice of raw fruits and vegetables. We would need to eat 2lbs of carrots, 10-12 apples, or 8 lbs of spinach to get the same amount of nutrients you receive in one 16oz juice. When you consume a fruit or vegetable juice, highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruits and vegetables and giving your digestive organs a much-needed rest.

Juicing and Illness:

There is so much research that demonstrates the healing properties of juicing. Not only will juicing facilitate weight loss, increase energy levels, strengthen immunity, give us strong bones and a glowing complexion, it has also been linked with reducing the chances of heart disease, cancer and strokes. A growing body of research suggests that many vitamin supplements don’t help prevent chronic disease. A synthetic vitamin or mineral is a laboratory simulation of the real thing. Natural, plant-based vitamins and minerals are more easily and completely absorbed by the body.

Where to find a juice fix in the Lake District:

You’ll be pleased to know that the modern phenomena of fresh juices can be found nestled in the more traditional Lake District! The newly opened ‘Lakes Pressery’ in Ambleside is the real deal and offers a host of delicious juices to enjoy on-site or take away. We love the look of the ‘Dr Brainlove’ juice, comprising Blueberry, Beetroot, Spinach, Broccoli, Apple & Lime.

You can also pick up a delicious fresh juice from ‘Greens Café’ in Grasmere. The ‘Kiwicumber’ is proving to be a hit, comprising kiwi, spinach and cucumber.

Let’s hope this healthy approach to our bodies is adopted by more Lake District venues!
