Juicing with Kilner

Juicing is becoming a lucrative business in the UK, with thousands of health conscious people opting to blend vast quantities of fruit and vegetables to replace meals. By drinking so many nutrients and vitamins at once can help to kick start a diet or cleanse.

Juicing requires a considerable amount of will power and determination, especially during the first two days of following a juicing diet, however the recorded health benefits and weight loss claims make juicing extremely tempting. Not only can you aim to achieve a desired weight but it can also help clear up skin issues and even help your body fight off diseases.

Juicing is being marketed brilliantly thanks to the number of slim and beautiful celebrities who claim to be following a juicing meal plan. This may be the reason as to why many young women are taking up juicing.

If you fancy trying to introduce juicing into your diet simply select a number of your favourite fruits or vegetables and blend until smooth in a juicer. The best thing about juicing is you can be creative with your recipes. One day you could try adding aloe Vera juice, another day you might fancy trying to add coconut water. The combinations are really endless.

Kilner jars provide excellent juicing bottles and will keep your juice from spilling or going bad. Please remember to always refrigerate your juice if you are preparing it in advance. Always consult your doctor before trying to follow a strict juicing plan.
