Tip of the Day

Yes, folks, there a difference between smoothies and juicing. Smoothies require a blender to mix ingredients into a drinkable paste. By incorporating the entire fruit and vegetable, smoothies provide fiber along with other critical nutrients. Fiber in particular is helpful for controlling your blood sugar, keeping you full for longer, and feeding the good bacteria in your gut. The downside to fiber is that it inhibits the quick absorption of nutrients.

Juicing extracts liquid from fruits and vegetables. Because juicing does not extract fiber, the liquid provides  a healthy and immediate blast of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for your cells.

Smoothies and juices have great nutritional benefits–each in their own way. Regardless of your choice, remember that a smoothie or a juice is healthiest when loaded with vegetables and contain about one serving of fruit.
