Many people are beginning to realize that they are not eating enough fruits and vegetables daily. Fresh Juices and Smoothies are 2 of the easiest ways to add more fresh fruit and vegetables into your diet.

People often ask should I juice or should I blend my fruits and veggies. My answer is, do both. They both have great benefits… **BUT, you need to be careful when juicing and I will go into detail about why later on.

Lets break down the differences between juicing and blending;

Some of the benefits of blending are that the fibers of the fruits and vegetables are left inside of the smoothie making it thicker and a lot more filling. Depending on ingredients can help improve energy and can assist with weightless.  A smoothie can be great as a meal replacement. You can easily add energy boosters and superfoods (such as maca, goji berries, etc.). Something I like to blend into my smoothies for breakfast is uncooked organic oats. One of our favorite smoothies is pineapple spinach mango banana  with coconut water.

Some of the benefits of juicing are,  you are able to drink a ton of nutrients in one 12 oz cup of juice. When you juice, you are extracting the nutrients of what ever vegetable or fruit you choose. So you are basically getting concentrated nutrients. When you juice, the fibers are separated from the juice, making it easier for your body to absorb the nutrition of the vegetables and fruits fast. Juicing the right vegetables and fruits can alkalize your blood quicker than blending. It is well-known that cancer can not survive in an alkaline environment.

**When juicing a lot of people tend to juice all sweet fruits. While once a day this can’t hurt. Just be conscious of the amount of sweet fruit you use. **

So both juicing and blending are great ways to add more fresh fruit and vegetables to your diet. Smoothies are great for quick on the go meal replacements. Juices are great for flooding your body with nutrients.

Hope this helps out.

Bottling Juices At The Salad Man & Juice Bar

Hello SMJB fan. Sorry for the long silence. We have been working on ideas for The Salad Man & Juice Bar this spring. We are still out and about providence doing catered events for the winter months. Check out our catering menu if your looking for some great lunch or dinner.

So, one of the ideas we have come up with is bottling our juices for quicker service, Detox’s or shipping options for our out of state fans. We are also working on gluten free and vegan desserts. So far we have managed to create an awesome gluten free and vegan chocolate chip cookie. This cookie is soft and moist, not crunchy like most gluten free cookies.

We have come up with some awesome new smoothie ideas we think you will love. Here’s a little hint on what we are working on. You may need a spoon with these smoothies. Very vague clue, we know but trust you will love this idea.   So need less to say we can wait for spring to break.

As you may have noticed we have been hard at work with our website which is close to complete

Please remember to like us on and check out our new website
