There’s no doubt about it – the foods that we put into our bodies play a huge part in determining how we age. The fuel that we feed our bodies shape how we look, feel, and even think. If you’re looking to turn back the hands of time – or just stop the clock where you’re at – juicing for anti aging benefits is a great place to start.
The best anti aging foods are mostly fruits and vegetables. We all know this, but it can be challenging to get enough of the “good” foods. Vegetables take some time to wash, chop, and prepare and most of us don’t want to carry our fruit around with us on a busy day. It’s tempting to grab a quick bite to eat, even when that food is not so nutritious. This is where juicing comes in. Juicing your food allows you to quickly consume the best anti aging foods quickly and effectively.
Here are some easy anti aging juice recipes to get you started!
SPRING CHICKEN is a great anti aging juice that’s both chock full of nutrients and easy to make. Swiss chard is full of helpful chlorophyll and carrots hold their own in antioxidant powers (hello, vitamin A). Eggplants are an amazing source of Vitamin K, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese…this could be a post on its own. The sweetness of the carrots serve to mask the bitterness of Swiss chard and the eggplant serves as a nutritious base.
FRESH AS A DAISY
FRESH AS A DAISY is a simple and delicious recipe that will keep you hydrated, provide an energy boost, and give you a heap of nutrients all in one go! Alfalfa sprouts are a very low-calorie source of antioxidants and chlorophyll – both of which are fierce anti aging fighters. Parsley is also abundant in chlorophyll and adds an extra freshness to this concoction.
