The modern day kitchen is jam packed with technological gadgets to help the busy chef save time, effort, excess food waste and allow us to create healthy and stylish food masterpieces. We have all the gear for food, but we might not have much of an idea when it comes to food.

The increased interest in clean eating is one of the reasons why juicers are becoming more and more common in our kitchens. Is the juice diet hype backed up by any evidence or is it just another fad diet trend?

The juice diet has been around since the 1930s when Norman Walker invented the Norwalk Juicer.

The only diet that works is one that includes everything in moderation, and of course that can include juice.

One big concern is that the high fructose levels in fruit may play havoc with blood sugar levels and result in spikes of energy; what goes up must come down so an hour. After a juice. You might crash and burn. The acid content of certain fruits can cause tooth damage.

The rules are easy to understand.

    The most vulnerable time for the teeth to be brushed is after drinking juice. Wait at least 20 minutes after drinking.

    You can lower the natural sugar content in juices by combining vegetables with fruit.

    If you want a less intense taste in your juice, try diluting it with water.

    Shop bought juice is worse than homemade. You know what went into it. It is fresh.

    It does all the hard work for you.

    One juice a day is plenty and always include it as part of a balanced diet.

    The health benefits of different fruits and vegetables can be researched.

    We love carrot, orange, and ginger flavours.

    Including juice in your day to day diet is a good habit to get into. You can't go wrong if you follow the rules.

    Do you have a juice recipe that you would like to share?
