Fresh juices and smoothies are so popular these days due to the proclaimed health benefits of both. Many people are replacing meals with these liquid powerhouses. They are nutrient dense, packed with vitamins and antioxidants. In fact, juice cleanses are recommended by some healthcare professionals for detoxifying the body and restoring digestive health and immune function.
Honoring your staff by providing them with fresh fruits and the means to make juices, smoothies, and fruit enhanced waters will benefit the health of your team and the productivity you look to gain from that generous effort. This is a really nice gesture that could prove to be a win/win for all. Here are a few tips for how to accomplish this, including a couple of recipes.
Juicing is the process of extracting the beneficial liquid from fresh produce, leaving the pulp and fiber behind. For some, the fiber might be difficult to digest. An electric juicer is ideal for accomplishing this job. These machines are not very expensive, making them a good investment for your employees to enjoy the nutritional rewards. The pulp is separated from the fruit into a chamber that is easy to discard and rinse clean. A juicer is a great addition to your kitchen or break room.

1 kiwi, peeled
1 medium ripe papaya, peeled, seeded, and sliced
1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 cup coconut water (add to fruit juice)
Smoothies are made in a full size blender or personal size blender. Again, this equipment is relatively inexpensive. Blending fresh produce converts the flesh, including the pulp, into a thick beverage. This is how many people like to start their day. It is a healthy, filling meal packed with nutrients, free radical fighting antioxidants, and fiber for optimal digestion. Having a blender or two available with a large bowl of fruit will help jump start you and your employees’ mornings.

Citrus fruits are loaded with vitamin C. During cold and flu season, these can be extremely beneficial to consume for boosting the immune system and reducing the spread of illness. Lemons and limes are also great detoxifiers for your internal organs. Have glass pitchers or a dispenser filled with chilled water and slices of lemons, limes, and oranges available for staff and visitors. This enhances the water with both refreshing flavors and vitamins. You can also prepare a container of sliced lemons for individuals to add to their cups of afternoon tea.
