How to juice your produce

Tim Domini, Lunds 50th Street produce manager
Friday, March 29, 2013

Did you know for a moderately active adult male, the Center for Disease Control recommends eating two and a half cups of fruit and four cups of vegetables per day? Even though I’m surrounded by fruits and vegetables as a produce manager, I still find it difficult to make sure I’m getting enough of these foods in my diet.

That was until I discovered a simple and fun solution to the problem: juice them! Juicing is a great way to get all of the benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables without having to prepare them. Not only that, but it gives you the opportunity to reap the health benefits of vegetables you may not enjoy eating.

Kale should win an award for being one of the biggest underdogs in the garden to take the leafy green world by storm. Kale is everywhere in the market these days. Curley kale, Dino kale, Redbor kale, kale chips; and then you’ve got your kale in soups, salads and smoothies and out west, trend setting natural foodies are starting to drink kale juice, straight up. Move over wheat grass.

Top 10 secrets to optimal health

The natural food industry knows things - secret things that some people are just discovering will turn their health around. For example, I’m sure you’ve heard recent claims that “sugar is a toxin.” The natural food industry has known this about sugar for decades, but if it’s breaking news for you, then you probably aren’t loading your grocery cart with natural and organic foods.

I’ve been in the natural food business for more than 30 years, listening to and being mentored by hundreds of natural health food experts. I’m not a nutritionist, but I have studied holistic nutrition and learned the basic secrets to natural foods.

I’m not making health claims - just telling you what I’ve learned over the years that works for me. And as always, it’s always a good idea to check with your doctor before making changes to your health regime.
