“The greener-the better” is my motto!

greenjuice1

I love my green juice! I incorporate juicing into my weekly routine, and make juices for the kids as well. When making my juices, I usually just grab whatever veggies I have in the refrigerator and juice them with an apple or pear. I even enjoy making juices that are very bitter. The more you juice, the more you get used to the organic, natural flavors of the vegetables.

I enjoy juicing first thing in the morning to accelerate the liver cleansing process, and to slowly restart my digestive system for the day.

Optimal nutrition

Green juicing is one of the most significant ways to regain your health through the intake of optimal nutrition. Green juicing provides the concentrated nutrition you need without overwhelming your stomach or the rest of your digestive tract.

Juicing removes the fiber, an indigestible carbohydrate, which is a part of every green vegetable you juice. Fiber slows down nutrient absorption and binds some of the nutrients we need to regain health, making them unavailable to us. When healing from disease, we need fast, efficient nutrient absorption.

Green juices are completely power-packed with nutrition. Greens produce chlorophyll, which oxygenate your body. This enables us to release stored toxins in the body. Your hemoglobin (that has a similar molecular structure as that of your red blood cells) will get elevated, improving the blood circulation as a result and giving your body a boost of energy. A green juice will cleanse your digestive system, lungs, liver (which will rev up, if sluggish — causing you to retain weight) and uterus.

Green juice only takes about 20 to 30 minutes to digest, allowing your digestive system to rest, reserve energy and return to a healthy state.
