January is often a time of the year when we feel fed up. With the short nights and dark days, cold and rain, the Summer holidays seem far away. This Winter wagamama, a company whose Asian food is based around fresh fruit, vegetables and nourishing flavours, has joined forces with mindfulness expert Michael Townsend Williams. The result is a mood-boosting juice called 'Positive', designed to help us Brits beat the January Blues amongst other nutritious juices.
wagamama And Juice
wagamama are no strangers to having juices on their menu, all squeezed, pulped and poured fresh for the customer every day. Their 'Raw Juice' is a cult product for example, with carrot, cucumber, tomato, orange and apple all juiced and mixed together for that delicious taste and fabulous goodness in a glass. Other juices available include 'Super Green Juice', 'Blueberry Spice Juice' and 'Tropical Juice'.
The Benefits Of Juicing
Raw Juice, Super Green Juice, Blueberry Spice Juice, and Tropical Juice
Advocates of juicing point to the fact that juicing contains most of the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals (phytonutrients) found in the whole fruit, and can be easier to digest. It is also a great way to add more servings of fruit and vegetables to your diet and lower your cancer risk.
Although you should still aim to get your recommended 5 portions of fruit and veg per day from whole foods, fresh juice is useful to supplement your portions and get the valuable phytonutrients.
