On the Incredibly Healing Power of Green Veggie Juices and Smoothies

green juiceDid you know that if you add a detoxing veggie juice or smoothie into your daily diet, miraculous things will start to happen? You will begin to detox naturally and your body will start craving healthy, nutritious food, instead of the one that does not support your health. I have received many testimonials of clients who reduced their blood sugar and lost incredible amounts of pounds by just incorporating this healthy practice into their lives!

Juicing and blending are the best way to incorporate raw foods easily and simply into your diet. When you start incorporating these raw foods, you will start to “crowd out” processed, denatured foods that have no nutrients but lots of calories. When you think juicing or blending, think green. The rest adds flavor and other nutrients, of course. The power of the juice is the greens:  lots of chlorophyl and oxygen that will alkalize your body and keep degenarative disease away. Put just enough sweet fruits, like Granny Smith apples or carrots,  so it’s not so bitter. If you have a chronic disease, like diabetes, cancer, heart disease or candida, avoid the sugar. To our health.

      Thanks for sharing your repice! We love smoothies too, but mainly only drink them after a run. I’m thinking that perhaps I should follow your lead during the summer months….having one in the morning, they are just so tasty aren’t they?! A great way to start the day!
