Does this heat make quenching one’s thirst with a cold juice acceptable or are we all better off sticking to good old H20? Monica Auslander Moreno, founder of Miami’s premier concierge nutrition practice, Essence Nutrition, has the answers:
“…juicing has a healthy place in a healthy diet, as all things do (even Nutella, hurray!) My team swears by a shot of anti-microbial friends like turmeric, ginger, oregano oil, and cayenne when we feel under the weather.”
“Juices are excellent vehicles for functional foods with magical powers beyond that of their basic macronutrient/micronutrient profiles that we normally wouldn’t eat. After all, when was the last time you casually sprinkled some lucuma over your oats? Maca, lucuma, spirulina, bee pollen, blackstrap molasses, cardamom, turmeric, chia, matcha, ginger and other potentially anti-inflammatory herb and substances can easily act as a delicious addition to a juice without compromising the texture or flavour.”
“Juices shouldn’t contain fruit! That concentrated sugar can do the same thing to your pancreas as candy. Rather, juices should include veggies, herbs, spices and maybe a little lemon.”
