|Can you eat all of that?|
That was a good question; one that had been on my mind at one time or other as well. The answer is this.
If you are wanting to focus on packing in the nutrients without all the bulk then juicing is the answer. Look at the volume of food needed for 1 drink. I could never eat that much in a sitting.....and then be ready in a couple hours to do it over again.
As I look at this cutting board full of amazing produce, an important rule of thumb comes to mind. That rule is the 80/20 rule. I have been seeing it in every corner of the web that I go to for research. It means that we should strive for 80% veggies and 20% fruits while juicing. Using this rule helps to get the incredible array of nutrients from the veggies while balancing out the sweet of the fruit. Fruits are power packed too. But it is better to have sustaining energy instead of a sugar spike.
By keeping that rule in mind and having fun with colors, you can create all kinds of fun and inventive drinks that are eye catchy, pleasing to your palette and packed with life. So have fun! Create and enjoy!
