Have you guys gotten into juicing yet? If you haven’t, you should try it! It’s a fun and tasty way to pack a ton of healthy nutrients into a drinkable treat that’ll make you feel great.
Now, a lot of folks out there think of juicing as a replacement for whole foods—I don’t agree with that. I believe that whole foods (and the fiber that comes along with them) are vital part of a healthy diet. I don’t recommend using fruit or vegetable juices as a replacement for food, instead,
I think adding all-natural, unsweetened fruit and vegetable juice to help supplement your diet is a great idea. It’s not better than whole foods, it’s just different. And sometimes, that’s all we need to help us keep up with a healthy diet.
As with everything, if it makes you and your family feel good, then do it. If it doesn’t? Skip it! For me personally, I see some real differences in the way I feel when I’m consistently juicing—I assume mostly because my overall consumption of fruits and veggies is up. My skin is brighter and clearer, and I tend to get sick less often. For me, juicing is a great way to kickstart healthy momentum.
