Why does a website that has JUICING as it's main focus, want to talk about DEHYDRATING? Why cross over from one to the other? Well, believe it or not, the answer is quite simple - and that is - both topics refer to getting healthy food into our bodies!
OK, it is easy to see that juicing fresh fruits and vegetables to give yourself and your family healthy, nutritious and vitamin packed drink is an excellent way to supplement your plan for healthy eating! But does dehydration give you any benefit in this same area?
I think so and so do many others. You too should try this because drying food can really be amazing for your health and your family's health. It will not hurt your budget either, so how about looking at some reasons why this can be beneficial for you.
In case you are not familiar with what a modern dehydrator looks like, let me give you a picture of one right here: The one pictured here is a Samson Dehydrator and is available at mlrsupply.com in the "Dehydrators" section.
You can see it has 9 drawers that can be filled with food and taking out moisture does not hurt the food in any way - in fact - increases the amount of antioxidants way above the fresh versions of the various fruits, etc. you can prepare.
What kinds of food can you preserve and increase it's value? Well, there are LOTS of them. Let me give you a few:
- Veggies (in chips) like carrots, zucchini, sweet potatoes, green beans and even kale (not my favorite, but good for you)
- Make some dried fruit chips (snacks) from bananas, lemons, oranges, apples, pears, and even prunes.
- Kind of a 'jerky' from beef, or lamb, or chicken, etc.
- Tomatoes (sun dried)
- And a bunch more.
If you explore the internet, you will find many places where dehydrating recipes exist.
And, just like fresh juice made from your juicer at home, there are no preservatives in dehydrated foods. They will last a long time for you when dehydrated without any serious loss in benefits.
Get into Dehydrating Food! It is something that is not that hard to do, especially with todays modern dehydrators. There are a good variety of them available at reasonable costs on my website: mlrsupply.com
