    I juiced a few grapes along with the wheat grass and kale and it is actually quite tasty! Don’t know whether the food combining is sensible, but so far I can take it better than just pure wheat grass juice

    Intake of vegetables being low among children these days, juice can be an interesting way to increase the vegetable consumption among children. Having a bowl of juice when you’re just back home makes you feel refreshed and alive. More importantly, they keep your family going till dinner, and do not kill their appetite for diner… what a change from the heavy, oily snacks that most of us consume in the evening!

    Vegetable juice is every bit as nutritious as fruit juice but with about half the calories. Most vegetable juices are also rich in fiber which can help make you feel full and in turn eat less.

    Aside from vitamins and minerals that are present in fruits and vegetables, antioxidants, fiber, enzymes and rare forms of protein are found in them. Having this diet also supplies your body with potent Vitamin C, which is best in protecting the cells from viruses.

    Excellent healthy choices from the juice of vegetables include the dark green leafy varieties that are rich in carotenoid and cruciferous phytonutrients. These include spinach, kale, Swiss chard and romaine lettuce, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, cauliflower and cabbage. Other particularly healthy choices are tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, beans, garlic and onions.

    most commercial fruit and vegetable juices are loaded with preservatives, coloring, sugar, and other chemicals. It’s better to make your own.

    Gourds, balsam pear, endive, taro shoots, bamboo shoots, and hearts of palm all rank very high in zinc. Raw is more nutritious than cooked.

    The leaf is the factory of the plant, where everything needed by the plant is manufactured. GLV are comparatively cheap and have to be eaten fresh. Their chlorophyll content protects the body against cancer and neutralises toxins. Thanks to the chlorophyll, GLV have the capacity to convert the pure energy of sunlight into vegetable matter. When we consume the green vegetable matter, this solar energy is released into our own systems. Leafy vegetables thus serve as transformers and storehouses for revitalising solar energy
