Cold Pressed Juices: Drinking Healthy Juices Can Change Your Life
Written by: Kat Gal
The best pressed juice can bring you home. Just one sip can make you feel loved all the way through to your tiniest cells, filling you up with health, energy and happiness.
If you want to drink the highest quality of juice, all you need is pressed juice.
Cold pressed juice is the king of juices – even within the healthy green juice family. Pressed juices:
- Are made using a hydraulic press, getting the juice out from fruits and veggies
- Are made from 100% fruits and vegetables
- Include NO added ingredients
- Are NOT pasteurized
- Are usually organic
- Have low level of oxidation as no heat is applied in the process
- Nutrient rich
- Can last for many days or even weeks when sealed tightly unlike homemade juice that you need to drink right away
- Convenient, since you are not making them yourself
Do You Want To Go On a Pressed Juice Diet?
Going on a juice cleanse for a day, a few days, a week or even two weeks can be beneficial to:
- Detox your system from processed sugar, processed foods and other toxins
- Give your digestion a break
- Rewire your taste buds
- Kick-start a healthy diet
- Kick-start your weight loss
- Fill your body with energy
- Clear up your skin
Go For GREEN Juice
Regardless if you are looking to do a juice cleanse or not, your health can benefit from a daily glass (or two) of pressed juice (green juice, of course!). While fruit juices are too high in sugar and can lead to blood sugar issues, green juices are made mostly with greens and vegetables, keeping your blood sugar balanced. Fruits are the best when consumed with all the fiber as a whole fruit or a smoothie. If you want juice, you want green juices with greens and veggies.
Not All Green Juice Is Green
Know that your green juice may not be ‘green’ in color: the juices made with beets or carrots or other non-green veggies, for example, will looks orange, brown, maroon or purple, but since they are made primarily with vegetables, they are still considered green juice.
How To Find The Best Pressed Juice Bar
There are pressed juice bars popping up everywhere from major cities to smaller towns. There are pressed juice counters in many health food stores and even conventional supermarkets. Pressed juice is also sold at many cafes, markets and restaurants.
When looking for a pressed juice bar near you, make sure that:
- The pressed juice bar is truly serving pressed juiced instead of other juices or concentrated juice
- The pressed juice bar is not adding any sugar or processed ingredients to your juice – it is pure pressed juice
- The pressed juice bar is serving GREEN juices, instead of only fruit juices
- The pressed juice bar is serving a large variety of green juices so you can enjoy different flavors with a variety of health benefits each day
- The pressed juice bar allows you to customize your drink (this is not a requirement, but fun and convenient, especially if you have food sensitivities)
- The pressed juice bar has good character with enthusiastic, nice employees (of course, this is also not a requirement, but it’s always nice to walk into an inspiring place with a welcoming atmosphere and kind people)
