Consuming the Government’s recommended five a day can be difficult, especially if your children’s taste buds have not quite reached the stage where they’re appreciative of anything healthy. With the amount of products available in supermarkets claiming to be one of your five a day it can feel at times we are overwhelmed with choice when it comes to consuming the essential foods. Here we look at alternative options which are not only as good as the juices you find in the supermarkets but are also a lot cheaper and can be tailored to you and your families needs.
First of all you’re going to need a juicer. With juicers readily available, spend some time doing the research into the best juicers on the market. If you invest in a less expensive juicer you may find you’re replacing it on a regular basis. Consider what you will be juicing more, fruit or vegetables? Both in equal measures? It is generally thought all juicers can juice anything, to some extent this is true, but many have been designed to juice certain produce better than others.
Whatever you choose to juice it is vital you maintain levels of fruit and vegetables. The day you run out of items to juice is the day you will probably look for an unhealthy alternative. Baring this in mind then, ample storage space within fridge freezers is essential for all those juices and smoothies made.

To relieve headaches it’s important to consume calcium and magnesium which can be found in abundance within Cauliflower and Broccoli. Juice one Cauliflower and One Broccoli, to add some taste consider adding an apple. It may not look the prettiest of juices, but rest assured, it will have you back on your feet in no time.
