It’s easy to fall into bad eating habits. Skipping breakfast, lunch on the run and trying to find time to cook something healthy for dinner often falls by the wayside in favour of fast food or anything that can be throw in the oven and eaten on the sofa with a glass of wine.
The Dead Sea Scrolls make reference to the mashing of pomegranate and figs for 'profound strength and subtle form', which was practiced from before 150 BC. This may be perhaps one of the first records of people attempting to separate juices from fruits and vegetables for their health giving benefits. Throughout time, herbalists and health practitioners would grind fresh herbs and soft fruits in order to give their health giving properties to those around them.
