I want to talk about juicing with you all. Nothing feels quite like the first few sips of a fresh, pressed juice. They provide an energy that you can’t get any other way! I was just speaking with a client today about this “feeling”. We both marveled at how you can feel each vein in your body wake up from your head down to your toes with certain fresh pressed juices. Especially, those that have ginger root! Food is truly that powerful.
I love juicing for many different reasons. It is such an easy and quick way to get vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients from fruits and vegetables. We don’t all have time to sit down to a beautiful, crisp fruit and veggie salad each day. But, we do all have time to drink! Juicing is such a healthy hack for anyone looking to feel and look better- while ramping up their nutrient density each day.
There are a million different recipes and you are bound to find one that fits your taste buds.
I love to drink spicy green ones, rich orange/carrot/ginger juice, grounding beet juice and, in the summer, love ALL melons juiced up with fresh mint. Nothing is as refreshing!
You can either find a juice shop that you love locally or buy a juicer and let your imagination run wild! We are in Jacksonville and are SO lucky to have Watt’s Juicery.
Just use the magic of google and search “pressed juice” with your town. If you don’t have a standalone shop, Whole Foods, Fresh Market, organic markets and even mainstream grocery stores carry great juice brands. Sometimes you have to do a little local exploring and digging- but it will be worth it!
I love to buy juice, but also LOVE to create my own blends at home. I have a juicer and I love it- easy to use, effective and not very pricey. I wanted to see if I liked juicing before financially committing to a bigger juicer. Here is the Breville: Juice Fountain Plus. This is what I own and have used exclusively for 3 years.
If you already know what you like, get to playing around in the kitchen! If you are newer to juicing there is an excellent book by Kris Carr, Crazy Sexy Juice, that is all about juicing. It has the easiest and most delicious recipes. They are tried, tested and sure to please.
If you follow me on IG you will see the recipe blends that I used for these. I plan on making lots more juices in the future- so if you have any questions about juicing, just drop me a line!
Dip your toes into the wild world or pressed juices. It is a truly delicious way to enjoy all your fruits and veggies. Kiddos like them, too 😉
Have a great rest of the day today!
