Can We Manage 7 Portions of Fruit and Veg a Day?11:05 am
There has been much debate about recent health campaigners’ claims that we should up our daily intake of fruit and veg from the previous 5-a-day to 7-a-day. The claim arose after the results of the recent UK-based Health Survey that states eating a slightly higher portion of fruit and veg will considerably enhance your health and life-expectancy. The debate seems to have sparked controversy as many believe that we on average barely consume 3 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Whether this is due to worrying about the cost of fresh vegetables to not having enough time to make a fruit salad, those for and against the recent claims seem to be equal on both sides.
However, most agree that trying to incorporate healthier, fresher foods into your diet can never be a bad thing. So, even if you are concerned that you won’t be able to consume 7 portions of fruit and veg per day, being aware of the importance of healthy eating and making small changes to daily routines can have a large impact on health in the long run. One of the easiest ways to make one of these small changes and quickly consume your daily intake is through the employment of a Fruit or Vegetable Juicer or Juice Extractor, such as the Santos High Output Juicer. It's quiet yet powerful, whilst its extra wide feeding chute means there is no need to cut fruit and veg into small chunks. To see one in action, take a look at our YouTube Video at the bottom of the page.
The popularity of domestic juicing, juice bars and even fresh juice options in restaurants and bars has rocketed in the past year - and it’s clear to see why. The convenience of juicing on a personal level and for the commercial caterer perfectly parallels the health benefits and rise in energy levels that many of us strive towards. This, along with the summer steadily approaching, means that Fruit or Vegetable Juicers and Juice Extractors are the must-buy appliance of the year.
Here at Nisbets, we have a great range of Juice Extractors from a variety of bestselling brand names. Alongside the familiar appliances from Robot Coupe and Zummo, we also have a comprehensive selection of Juice Extractors from Santos, including the Santos Classic Juicer. Its classic design, quality construction and high speed motor means the Santos Classic Juicer is ideal for continuous juice production.
Our bestselling Magimix juicer, the MagimixLe Duo Plus XL Combination Juicer, also comes with a range of useful features, including a wide feed juicer, citrus press and coulis maker, all of which are ideal for most hard and soft fruit and vegetables. Its components are also dishwasher safe and its output is approximately an impressive half a litre of juice per minute, dependant on the type of fruit or vegetables. The Waring JuiceExtractor shares many of these features, but with the added benefit of its patented "gryo base" which practically eliminates vibration during use. This, along with its light-duty construction and engineering, mean it is the ideal domestic Juicer.
With our fantastic range of juicing appliances, and with its overall benefits causing Juicing to be more and more likely to survive the label of a mere ‘fad’, it is clear that there has never been a better time to purchase a Fruit and Vegetable Juicer or Juice Extractor.
