Recently I was sent the range of Vegesentials juices to try. You all know that recently I bought a juicer, and am loving using it, however I have to say that the Veggesentials really appeal as a convenient option.
When you make a fresh juice it is always best to drink it straight away because as the juice gets exposed to air, its live enzymes begin to degrade, therefore decreasing the nutritional content. These juices are cold pressed and cold pressurised and aren't heat pasterurised which means that you get all the goodness of the fruit and vegetables on the go.
A lot of juices currently on the market tend to be all fruit, but all the Vegesentials juices contain half fruit and half vegetables, and with great combinations such as Carrot, Peach and Cucumber or Beetroot, Pomegranate and Carrot you're sure to find one that you love, and you won't be missing any fruit.
I often find that when I'm on the go my drink choices are generally limited to water, tea, coffee, or if I'm very lucky, perhaps a coconut water. These juices are available in Waitrose, Ocado and Wholefoods, and I will happily be picking one up next tine I see one. Using my juicer at home can sometimes be such a faff just because I have to clear the juicer afterwards, so I love that there is no cleaning involved!
My favourite flavour out of all of the flavours was the Beetroot, Blueberry and Cucumber. I was also sent a few bottles which were slightly smaller, which are aimed at children. I loved these as I'm always the person that never finishes their drink, so the smaller option is great. As I find them to be sweet, I find a little bit kills the sweet craving straight away for me: I found the Cucumber and Pineapple flavour particularly refreshing!
I received a lovely handwritten letter by the founders of Vegesentials, Patience and Andrew, explaining how they started the business after a health scare that forced them to radically change their lifestyle. I thought that receiving a lovely handwritten letter was such a personal touch, it just shows you the values this family run business have.
Have you tried any of the Vegesentials juices?
