Yesterday I posted a picture of a fresh juice that I made for Monday morning, but before I get into why I love fresh pressed juice so much, I should explain why we started juicing! After watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on Netflix last year (it should still be on there for you to stream); Gary and I decided that we needed to incorporate juices into our daily lives. It really helps with detoxifying your body! We went out and bought the Breville Juicer (same one he uses in the documentary). It's a bit pricey, but we had our 20% off coupon as well as some credits to Bed Bath & Beyond, so it ended up costing us a penny...yes that's correct! I also found this one from Amazon and also this one from High Fashion Home for a bit cheaper.
Once we knew all the benefits to juicing - we started to incorporate it into our mornings at least twice a week. We've fallen off here and there as it does get expensive buying fresh produce so often, but when I think of eating an apple or drinking fresh apple juice with no additives, I'd always prefer the fresh juice option.
We don't really have a set recipe but we like to include strawberries, apples, carrots, oranges, cucumbers, kiwi and kale. Anything that can produce a lot of juice!!
We don't add any milk or anything aside from the vegetables and fruit that we are juicing...so these are not smoothies, but strictly juices!
I haven't been on an all juice cleanse and I'm not sure I can replace all my meals for one day - let alone for three, but I loved some of the Blue Print Cleanse juices so we've made the green and red juice as well!
I usually drink one for breakfast two to three times a week, instead of having eggs or an English muffin. It's what works for me, but in no way do I expect it to work for everyone!
Are you a fan of juices? What are your favorite ingredients to include?
