The change in seasons means a change of pace for many of us. We’re getting back into the “go-go-go” life filled with work and school and are already starting to prepare for the upcoming holiday season. A great way to allow our bodies to keep up with daily demands is “juicing” your favorite fruits and veggies for an on-the-go breakfast or a refreshing and filling afternoon snack. These renditions of our traditional fall favorites give us the nutrients we need in a surprisingly refreshing way. Not to mention, the fall harvest offers some of the best fruits and vegetables perfect for juicing.
Here are some of perfect fall ingredients for juicing and the health benefits they offer:
Carrots – Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, providing more than 200% of your daily requirement in just one carrot.
Pumpkin – Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A and fiber, and low in calories.
Apples – Apples pack in lots of soluble fiber, along with Vitamin C. Plus, a medium apple counts as 1 cup of fruit.
Pomegranate – Pomegranates have lots of antioxidant power, possibly even more than cranberry juice or green tea.
Sweet Potato – Sweet potatoes are loaded with Vitamin B & C and also are a good source for Iron and Magnesium.
Give juicing a try at one of the Travaasa properties and put those fall harvest skills to good use. Check the Austin Experience Schedule and Hana Experience Schedule for special juicing events planned during Harvest Month.
