Get Your Glow On

Dewey Skin and Added Fiber

Growing up, my mom had a giant, heavy juicer. It was old school. My aunts juiced. Trendy, and then not trendy. I think it’s on the outs right now. Can you say, KETO?? Lol!

Fast forward to now, JB and I have been through a few juicers and one Vitamix.  With our old juicers, we would use the leftover pulp to make muffins, nothing to waste. So, we juiced until one of our friends told us about Vitamix.

The Vitamix blends fruits and veggies, while keeping the fiber. Whereas, with juicing, the fiber is separated and discarded. Fiber = weight loss. Score!

My Go to Recipe

My current favorite recipe is simply two handfuls of spinach, two cups of water, half of a cucumber, and the juice of a lemon. It doesn’t seem like much, but I instantly feel better.

Benefits of Green Juice

  • Antioxidants = GLOWING SKIN
  • Chlorophyll = detox and alkalinity
  • Fiber = weight loss
  • Reduced inflammation = pain relief

If you don’t want to commit fully to a Vitamix and it’s price tag, check out the Nutri Ninja Pro. It has 4.5 stars on Amazon, so it must be doing something right.

I’m thinking of doing a 30 day juice challenge. Who is with me?? If you are interested, like this article and I’ll create a plan for us.

What is your favorite juice recipe?

Do you cleanse when the season changes?
