Philips #HealthyHabitSwap Juicing Campaign

Today I’m talking about the Philips #HealthyHabitSwap Campaign that I’m currently taking part in.

I was recently contacted by Philips who kindly invited me to take part in the #HealthyHabitSwap Campaign which focuses on the benefits of juicing and have invited me to swap one unhealthy daily habit for a fresh made juice. Philips kindly sent me the new Avance Collection Centrifugal Juicer and a voucher to get some fruit and veggies to help me on my way!

Philips Juicer Review

I have in the past been into juicing and have covered it on the blog in a past post but my old juicer stopped working some time ago and then I got out of the habit so this couldn’t have come at a better time.

I have decided to swap my mid afternoon cup of tea for a home made juice when I’m feeling the mid afternoon slump. I have also just re-joined a gym so I’m hoping with my new juicing and exercise regime that I will get a lot healthier than I currently am at the moment.

Philips Juicing challenge

Blogger review for Philips Avance Collection Centrifugal Juicer

The juicer itself is so easy to use and clean as it has a quick clean function which is great. It has two settings for a clear juice or a thicker juice which contains some pulp and fibre.

The juicer came with some great juicing recipes which I can’t wait to try out! I loved the sound of Pink Smoothie Symphony which I made as my first juice and is shown in the pics below. It was a thick smoothie style juice which I made on Level 2 which is maximum fibre setting and it contains grapes and strawberries. It was delicious and a consistency between a smoothie and juice. They also have a few juicing recipes on the Philips website too.

I am really looking forward to try some different juices in the next few weeks, as there are so many positive health benefits. I would love to know if you are currently juicing or is it something that you would be looking to get into? If so what’s your favourite juice? If you would swap one unhealthy habit for a juice what would it be? Let me know in the comments section below.

*The juicer was a gift from Philips along with a voucher to buy some fruit. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Oh yum that looks like a great juice to start with! 🙂 My sister has a blender and makes a lot of juices but I don’t do it very often. I prefer eating the fresh fruit, but I’d definitely be able to eat more if I juiced them up first! 🙂

    Hope you are having a great start to the week! Good luck with your health goals!

    I have homemade smoothies, usually with some green in them, once or twice a week, but never had a juicer. I just use my blender. But there would be quite a few unhealthy habits to switch out, like sweets in the evening, black tea with sugar after lunch…
    Well done for switching to a healthier lifestyle, Gemma. You got this!

    Hi Gemma, thank you for sharing with us your review. I really enjoyed reading about Philip’s new juicer. I love drinking fresh juices but I like smoothies more. I make green smoothies every morning. Juice is something that I like to drink in summer when it is hot.

    I love the look of this juicer! It’s not outrageously huge and the size seems great for easy storage. I’ve actually avoided purchasing a juicer for that reason and instead use the NutriBullet. I love it and have been trying to juice as much as possible, especially now that I’m pregnant. I sometimes add in almond or coconut milk depending on the fruits I’m using, but I always add spinach to the mix. I’d love for you to share new recipes future posts to get some ideas! Thanks for sharing your experience with us, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great day!

      Hey Jalisa, it’s a great size I agree.. It’s only my second day but I’m going to try apple, pear and parsley today as I have heard that parsley has loads of health benefits. Hope you have a lovely day! Gemma x

    Personally I don’t do juicing, I don’t know why though. My family eats a lot of fruits daily so I never thought it was necessary to do juicing of that makes any sense? That looks like a nifty gadget to have in the kitchen though.

    This is secretly the reason why I ever became a blogger. To be sent a juicer in the mail. (#i’mkidding. not). These photographs are so crisp, and I’m so excited for you to start juicing again, and being ore active in the gym. it honestly feels like the biggest gift you can give your body. I really should take my own encouragement… Lovely post, Gemma!

    I got my husband a juicer a number of years ago. We don’t use it as much as we should, but juicing can be such a great way to get the extra nutritional benefits of vegies and fruits at their freshest. This Christmas my husband got me a Magic Bullet, which is an individual juicer. I need to get it out and start using it! Thanks for the motivation! – Amy
