Following an indulgent Christmas, many of us want to make a fresh start to the New Year. It’s no surprise that a common New Years resolution is to eat and drink more healthily.
Most of us think about getting our “5-a-day”, but this recommendation only scratches the surface when it comes to antioxidant intake – ideally, active people should aim for 8-10 portions of fruit and veg per day. In fact, a major review found people who regularly ate 800g of fruit and veg a day – 10 portions – had a significantly lower risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease.[i]
But let’s be honest, eating 10 portions of fruit and veg a day is impractical for most of us. Juicing is the easy way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet; by making fresh juice at home, you’ll be getting a healthy boost, that’s not only good for you but delicious as well.
With Sage’s range of juicers, you can create your own juice quickly and easily from the comfort of your own home. Choose your favourite fruits and vegetables, and you’re ready to go! Whatever you want to juice, Sage has the appliance for you;
–The Big Squeeze is a slow juicer that crushes and squeezes to make more juice, with more nutrients and a little fibre for a thicker, smoother texture. This is a great method for extracting high yield juice from items like wheatgrass, small berries and tomatoes.
–The Nutri Juicer® Plus has 2 discs that allow you to juice soft and hard fruits, and vegetables. The Nutri Disc™ has titanium reinforced cutting blades which are perfect for hard fruit and vegetables and the Froojie™ Disc and insert help to extract the maximum yield from soft ones like strawberries and bananas.
–The Nutri Juicer® Cold minimizes damage to delicate vitamins and minerals from heat and processing. Sage’s Cold Spin Technology has been shown to transfer less than 1.8°F while extracting juice, and the 850w motor processes even the toughest fruits and vegetables in just seconds.
–The Nutri Juicer Cold XL features an even bigger 3.5-inch feed chute, and can extract 70 fl.oz. of nutrient rich juice up to 5x faster than a ‘cold press’ machine.
Fruit and vegetables come in a bounty of seasonal shapes, sizes and textures, in every colour of the rainbow. Here are some of our favourite juice combinations, but remember, the only limit is your imagination!
