Many adults are too busy to fix breakfast in the morning and instead opt for a cup of coffee or two to start their day. They figure the jolt you get from that caffeine is enough to wake them up and get their engine revved up.
How Raw Juice Benefits Your Morning Routine
Despite our best efforts to eat more vegetables and fruits, most of us fall short of the expected 5-6 servings per day. With a lack of significant willpower, many of us render ourselves incapable of pouring a bowl of cereal or cooking oatmeal in the morning, topping it off with fruit. Instead of eating a healthy breakfast in the morning, many of us instead reach for a cup, pour water in it, place it in the microwave and then put a couple teaspoons of coffee from the jar with sugar. We then grab it, run out the door, sipping it during rush hour. Or we stop at the local coffee retailer, buying a fancy cup of coffee like a latte, and head off to work. Either way, no real nutritive power lies in this brown substance, just a temporary energy fix.
Raw juicing in the morning provides us with the nutrients and vitamins in one serving that we normally should get throughout the day. Instead of worrying about what fruits and vegetables we are going to ingest at lunchtime and later at dinner, we can drink them all in one sitting. This leads to providing us with anti-aging affects and the ability to boost our immune system.
