Life in the kitchen

Green is the new gold. Juice, glorious juice.

Juicing has become such thing, we simply had to give it some airtime. (What did we do before carrot and ginger found its way into our fruit juice?) We also love what juice puts into our bodies: a huge concentration of vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

When you drink a glass of fresh juice, you’re getting heaps of nutrients into your body, quickly and easily, and it’s especially beneficial if you’re drinking on an empty stomach – which is why breakfast juicing is such a great idea.

So yes, it’s healthy, but get this:  juice can also help with longevity.  It’s said that juice can lower your risk of heart disease, strokes and cancer. And while research is questioning the value of vitamin supplements, we know that the real thing – the vitamins and minerals in fresh juice – are quickly and easily absorbed. Want to live to a ripe, robust and grumpy old age? Keep juicing.

But that’s not all – as they say on TV.

Juice can help with weight loss. It’s great for your complexion and can boost your immunity, giving you increased energy levels and stronger bones.

What else can glorious juice do? It can make you a nicer person. Okay, we can’t prove this, but we think farmer Denham is strong evidence.  He’s one of our Nature’s Garden farmers, growing tons of veggies in the Groblersdal area. Denham loves cycling (and does the Epic in a Natures Garden jersey). He also adores veggies of course, and juicing – and he’s one of the nicest guys who ever pulled a carrot out of a carrot patch.

Since Denham’s favourite veg is (of course) a juicy carrot, here’s a juice with his name on it.
