National Fresh Squeezed Juice Day is an American holiday dedicated to freshly squeezed juice. This is a tasty and very healthy food product, which contains a large amount of vitamins and minerals. Celebrated every year on January 15th.
Today, Fresh Squeezed Juice is in high demand around the world. The popularity of this product has increased significantly thanks to the most famous nutritionists, who advise you to stop buying packaged juices in stores and cook them yourself. Thanks to modern technology, this has become possible. The automatic juicer will effectively extract the nutritious liquid from vegetables, fruits or berries. Freshly squeezed juices are very well absorbed by the body. This process takes only 10-15 minutes.
We owe the invention of the juicer to Norman Walker. This man was a strict vegetarian, he believed that the use of raw plant foods and juices allows you to maintain health, ensure the normal functioning of all organs and systems, and improve blood circulation. He took this position after he once became seriously ill. A doctor friend advised him to go on a raw food diet. Some time later, in the 1930s, Norman invented the first juicer to have daily access to freshly squeezed juice. It consisted of two parts: a crusher and a press, which directly squeezed out the juice.
- Many doctors recommend that freshly squeezed juices be slightly diluted with clean water before use in order to improve their digestibility by the stomach.
- Norman Walker’s vegetarianism has helped him tremendously. He was cheerful and full of energy until the end of his days. He died at the age of 99, right in his sleep.
- If you have stomach problems (gastritis, ulcers, etc.), then you should be very careful with acidic juices. For example, from cranberries, apples, lingonberries and more.
