What To Look For In A Green Juice



It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday! Remember that song?? What a throwback haha! I'm currently watching The Crown while writing this and omg do I love this show. Anyone else? I'm obsessed with anything royal so this show is super interesting for me. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't!

Okay on to the topic of this post! I feel like a lot of us are obsessed with green smoothies or juices like it'll instantly bring about good health. That is totally me. I bought these two green juices pictured and am literally waiting to drink them till next week because I want to start the week fresh. It's all a mindset right!?

Since green juices seem to be everywhere I thought I'd point out a few things to keep an eye out for or that I like to keep an eye out for. First of all I love green juices and they're a great way to get added nutrients but drinking a smoothie tends to be a better option. Smoothies have the fiber from the vegetables and fruits which is where most of the nutrients come from. That being said, green juices are still good for you!

One if the most important things I look for in a green juice is sugar content. While these sugars are natural since they come from veg and fruit the sugar content can get very high in some juices. There is nothing wrong with natural sugars but sugar is sugar and can still spike your blood sugar levels. When picking a juice look for one with lower sugar content which means juices with less fruit and more veggie.

Another thing I look for when picking out a green juice is that it is cold pressed. Cold pressed means that a hydraulic press is used when extracting the juice from the vegetables and fruits. What does that mean? No nutrients are lost in the juicing process. Like I said above, in juices you don't have the fiber  so it is important you don't lose any other nutrients in the juicing process.

Picking out a green juice doesn't have to be complicated and it's okay to sometimes buy a super fruity and tasty juice despite the sugar content or if it's cold pressed or not. That being said, green juices tend to be on the expensive side so why not get the most bang for your buck?

XOXO, Maddy
