Typical in a winter mountain ski town, the ‘colds’ and ‘sniffles’ tend to linger. We stay up late nights on Main St. for last call, followed by early morning wake ups for ‘first chair’. This process when repeated, with not-so-healthy food added to the equation/ lack of proper nutrients, brings a toll to our system. Our immune systems become weak, inner terrain acidic, and thus more susceptible to colds and flu viruses. Therefore, it is important to try to make up for some of the negative things we do to our bodies with good things we can do.
Raw fruit and vegetable ‘juicing’ is one of those important things we can do, especially in our ski town winter environment -where we may not see a lot of fruits and veggies during the winter. Juicing allows you to intake the nutrients of large amounts of vegetables and fruits that we may normally not take the time to take with our busy schedules. For example, when was the last time you ate a dozen carrots in one sitting? With juicing you can intake that amount of nutrients in easy to finish delicious drink.
Juicing does, however, take out the ‘fiber’ in this process which gives you a concentrate of nutrients, versus blending fruits and veggies which retain fiber in the drink. There is nothing wrong with blending vs. juicing, however, the level of nutrients in a blended drink will not be as high. Fiber is important for your body, so if you juice a lot -make sure to keep that in mind. For more info on juicing here’s a link with the benefits described in further detail.
In Park City, you have a few options for getting your RAW juice intake. You can purchase local veggies and fruits from the Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays beginning in June. A home juicer can be purchased anywhere from the $80-250 price range. There are a few local places that offer raw juice in Park City. You can go to Fairweather’s and knock out some grocery shopping in the p
rocess. Booster juice also offers wheatgrass shots and other fruit smoothie drinks. And finally, there is a new company called
Garden that will deliver RAW juice to your Park City home or business! If you’re a Parkite and haven’t tried juicing yet, we hope you try it soon!
