Juicing 101: Pros, cons, recipes

Posted: Updated:

We hear more and more about celebrities juicing and see pictures of juice concoctions that look a "healthy" but not necessarily tasty. But should you juice?

Why Juice? If you're not big into fruits and vegetables, it's a good way to get them in. It can help you meet daily recommendations in one drink and be part of a healthy diet.

Ali advises, however, that you shouldn't count on juicing as your sole source of fruits and vegetables.

Even if you juice, aim to eat two whole fruits, and three to four vegetables a day.

A juicing machine extracts the juice from whole fruits or vegetables. The processing results in fewer vitamins and minerals, because the nutrient-rich skin is left behind. Juicing also removes the pulp, which contains fiber.

Ali's tip: You can add some of the leftover pulp back into the juice or use it in cooking.
