The Gist of Juicing

unnamed

As we all know by now, pressed juices are very popular. Being a vegetarian, I am all about the craze. How could I not? They are delicious. I recently bought a juicer and started mastering a bunch of recipes to share with you all.

However, before I post them, I wanted to remind or tell everyone what is typically in juices. On Pinterest, I see a ton of people getting smoothies and juices mixed up; I know I did when I first started.

The main difference between smoothies and juices is the ingredients. Smoothies are typically all fruit and ice, while juices are mostly vegetables and a little fruit. Some juicing recipes involve different types of fruits to remove the bitterness of some juices. Always use fruits in moderation when juicing, because they are high in natural sugar.
