Goal: Boost fruit and veggie intake

My goal this year is to help people (young and old) boost their fruit and vegetable intake.  Consuming fresh juices and smoothies is one of the BEST ways to get it done! I find it easier to drink my greens than to chew on salads all day to get the nutrients I need.  Plus  – consuming fruits and vegetables in a liquid state makes the nutrients more bioavailable.

3 reasons you need fruits and veggies:

  1. Fruits and veggies are filled with vitamins and minerals that our bodies need  for essential functions.  There are even nutrients that scientists haven’t even identified that are present in these natural gems.
  2. Heard of constipation?  Most of us do not use the bathroom regularly.  This is partly due to the lack of fiber in the standard American diet.  Fruits and veggies are FULL of fiber!!! Best laxative on the planet!
  3. Fruits and veggies contain compounds  that can fight cancer, regulate diabetes, and eliminate inflammation!

The 3 – Day Juice Fast

Let's Get Juicing! (1)

Hi Folks! As a part of the Detox For a Diva program I coached and completed a 3 day juice fast.  Yep that’s right.  The plan was to drink nothing but juice for 3 days straight!  Raw fruits and vegetables along with herbal tea and vegetable broth was allowed if the participants absolutely needed something more.  Here’s an example of what I consumed on day #2.

Let’s Get Juicing!

Let's Get Juicing!

 

Hey Folks! The new year has begun! What goals have you set? Being healthier is on the top of most people’s resolution lists.  One of the things that has improved my health journey is becoming a juicer. Juicing and making smoothies has become a huge part of my life and here is why:

5 reasons why I love juicing:

  1. Because it’s  a great way to consume a lot of nutrients in just one glass! How many of us really consume the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals?
  2. I can drink my daily requirement of dark leafy greens easily.  Greens have been given a bad rap for being bitter and hard to chew.  When you throw dark leafy greens into a blender or juicer the whole game changes!
  3. My family benefits from the extra nutrition.  My 4 year old Caleb gets so many mystery goodies into his little body without me having to beg and plead.  He has actually started asking for “green smoothies”.
  4. It’s a way to educate your family about various ingredients and make nutrition fun. Especially when they help create the juices or smoothies.
  5. You can use a juice or a smoothie as a meal replacer.  This has helped me shed some pounds.

IMAG6326Remember juices and smoothies are very different. The act of “juicing” mechanically separates the liquid component from the solid component of a fruit or vegetable.  A smoothie mechanically blends everything together.   Both have a place in my life.   I’m preparing some videos for you that will go into juices vs. smoothies in more detail so stay tuned.
