Hey you guys!
I am so sorry I have been MIA… I did not forget about you guys. I have been super busy as I have just launched a new business venture with one of my best friends. I am super pumped to embark on this new journey of starting a cold-pressed juicing company, Kuka Juice, in Greenville, SC. As many of you know, I have been very passionate about juicing for quite some time and am thrilled to be able to spread the wealth on health and impact lives on a whole new level. I truly believe incorporating fresh juices into our daily routines can improve all aspects of our lives.
Kuka juice is a pick-up and delivery cold-pressed juice service in the Greenville, South Carolina area. Our cold-pressed juicing method allows you to receive 3-5 times more nutrients than your typical fresh juice. I would love you guys to check out the website [www.kukajuice.com]. Feel free to spread the word if you know anyone in the Greenville, SC area! I hope all of you are doing fabulous as always.
I did it! I completed the 10 day juice cleanse on Friday. How I made it through Thanksgiving still baffles me, but I did it! The last five days of the juice fast were much easier than the beginning. I will say that there were two days that I did not drink enough juice and I noticed that my energy level was down. That being said, make sure you are drinking 5 to 6 juices a day to keep your energy at an all time high. You can read about the beginning of my fast here: 10 Day Juice Fast
Tips for transitioning off of a juice fast/cleanse:
-Continue to drink LOTS of water
-Slowly transition back into eating foods
-Start by drinking 2 or 3 juices a day with one meal being fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.
-Try to keep other foods to soups, smoothies, and salads to ease your digestive system back into motion.
-Don’t overeat. Eat smaller amounts of food throughout the day.
-Avoid dairy, meat, sugary foods, and whole grains the first week.
-The more plant-based foods you can eat, the better!
-Keep drinking juice on a daily basis for optimal health!
I loved doing the 10 day juice cleanse! I now have more energy than I did before starting the fast. I have much better sleep patterns, waking up feeling rejuvenated and ready to go. I feel better overall and have noticed improvements in all facets of myself. I would definitely recommend a juice cleanse to anyone wanting to reboot their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. It can enhance your life in more ways than you would imagine.
Today’s delicious green juice recipe is Spinach-Green Apple-Pear! Juice on! 🙂
-6 large handfuls organic spinach
-2 organic green apples
-1 organic pear
- 3 Large handfuls of Spinach
- 1 bunch Lacinato Kale
- 4 Large Carrots
- 3 small Granny smith Apples
*If you’re not a big kale drinker, this one might have a strong flavor to you. This one is actually one of my favorites! All of the dark leafy greens in this are an awesome nutritional boost! And in the wise words of Popeye, “I’m strong to the finish, when I eats me spinach!”
