I started incorporating a Greens Juice into my day several years ago after reading Kimberly Synder’s “Beauty Detox Solution.” And let me tell you, it was one of the best “health-related” decisions I’ve ever made! Raw vegetables & fruits have the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and nutrients our bodies need to look, feel, and function at an optimal level. However, it would take pounds of greens & fruit to get the same amount of benefits in just one 16 oz. fresh juice, so that’s why it’s so important to add it into your daily routine!
I choose to drink my Greens Juice as my breakfast in the morning because I have an empty stomach so I can absorb the most nutrients & it’s easier to digest, plus the juice can be utilized as “quick energy” for my morning workouts. Some of my clients or friends ask “Well what about the all the sugar in juices?” I remind them that fruit contains natural sugars that our bodies digest differently than processed sugars, so if you aren’t overindulging in fruits all day long and you are getting enough exercise, you will have nothing to worry about! You can also choose a juice that only has greens or only has one kind of fruit as well.
Some of the benefits I’ve experienced from having my daily Greens Juice include: clearer, more vibrant skin; more energy; weight loss (I’ve been at the best weight of my life over the past couple of years – I’m 32!); regularity, boost in my immune system (I might get a cold once a year if that!); less aches & pains; boost in my metabolism; stronger, thicker hair; and I just overall FEEL BETTER! Remember when choosing your Greens Juice, it’s best to get a freshly squeezed or pressed, organic brand. Skip anything that can last more than a couple of days, because it’s usually pasteurized, has additives and loses all the positive health benefits that fresh juices have. That being said, here are my FAVORITE Dallas-based Juices that you need to try ASAP 🙂
