Best Masticating Juicer – The Complete Buyers Guide And Reviews

The Benefits Of Juicing And Why You Should Have One

Juicing is different than simply blending all your produce together. When you throw your produce in a blender, the blades will tear up all the fibers and take away a lot of the nutritional value that is contained in fruits and vegetables.

Juicing is a way to avoid this from happening. Juicing will allow you to extract the juice from fruits and vegetables by crushing them as opposed to blending them. The end result will be a healthier juice that contains an increased amount of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.

Juicing allows you to consume all of these healthy nutrients quickly in liquid form as opposed to having to eat them individually, while still receiving all of the nutritional benefits from them.

Quick and Easy Beef Stew Recipe

During the winter months (meaning November, December, and January here in Seattle) I get in the mood to slow cook yummy dishes that I dote over lovingly – dishes that bring me through the long winter nights.

But once February rolls around, and the daffodils bloom, and the days are noticeably longer (and warmer), the sunlight calls me to come outside to play. My fading interest in slow cooking is a sure sign that springtime is arriving.

So now that I’m into quick and easy, I wanted to share with you the quickest, easiest beef and root vegetable stew. Ever.

This beef stew took me 10 minutes to prepare. Chop. Chop. Chop. Once the pressure cooker was whooshing away, I was free to bike, play fetch with the dog, sit in the afternoon sun and read, whatever, for the next 40 minutes, only to return to a delicious, savory stew.

Canned wild Alaskan salmon is a less expensive alternative and works well for this recipe.

Healthy Snack Idea…Eggs!

Planning and preparing food for the week ahead is an important aspect to maintaining your goals for a healthy diet. Having healthy foods available makes it easier to avoid poor food choices.

Eggs are an affordable, nutrient-rich food. They contain the highest quality source of protein as well as nearly every essential vitamin and mineral. They also contain nonessential nutrients like choline, which is essential for normal brain development and memory, and lutein and zeaxanthin, two anti-oxidants from the carotenoid family, that contribute to eye health by protecting eyes from ultraviolet rays, reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration, and decreasing risk of developing cataracts.

Apple Pie Doughnuts

For some reason, I have been on a doughnut kick lately. I usually bake my doughnuts, but frying anything is always better. And it’s not bad if you do not do it often..or at least I like to tell myself.

I like doughnuts because they are a sweet treat that you can eat at any time. They are also relatively easy to make, especially if you have a doughnut cutter. Buying a doughnut cutter is worth it if you like to make homemade doughnuts.
