Cleansing out

IMG_2131 IMG_2117IMG_2120IMG_2134

Let’s start off this Monday right by JUICING! I have always wanted to post this but was trying to find the right recipe that I liked. This GREEN juice has been my latest obsession. Spinach, Celery, Carrots, Apples, Grapes. This combination is great for who ever wants a subtle sweet taste and going for that freshness. Oh yeah just for your info, I bought my apples and celery organic! Do you guys remember my “Must eat Organic post”, click HERE if you haven’t seen it yet. Too bad, I couldn’t find organics in spinach and grapes at my local grocery.

As much as I like drinking juice, I really prefer juicing than buying bottled juice. Most bottled juice contains excessive sugar and extracts all the fibres out of the goodness of Vegs/Fruits. Not only that, bottled juices are pasteurized meaning that it has been heated at a very high temperature in a short time which kills bacteria, micro-organisms, molds for food safety reasons. However, this also kills the vitamins and enzymes!

So juicing is the BETTER option here. I can’t stress enough that so many people are juicing the wrong way. Most juice machines are extracting all the fibres out leaving behind vital nutrients from skins of fruits/vegs. If you are really going for that healthy diet, please try to eat all the FIBRES! All that fibres is going to clean out your colon giving you regular bowel movements.  There are so many good juice machines out there that help retain all that fibres. Looking for one isn’t hard but the real problem is the cost of it. The really good ones can cost up to $500 dollars. If you are really not into eating vegs/fruits I really suggest investing on a juicer like Nutribullet, it’s really easy to use and clean up is fantastic. I got mine for $100 dollars. I know there are so many cheaper juicers out there but I don’t really recommend it because it burns out so quickly or the motor gets heated too fast. Do you guys juice? Share me your recipes here, I’ll love to try it!

Stay Hearty.

  1. My dad has his own “garden” (which my brother and I call the heavenly garden because he grows everything there except bananas and coconuts lol) and he usually makes us fruit juices. One that I particularly like includes apples, pears, an orange, and sometimes (if he really gets experimental) he adds in quinces. But it all tastes really good because it’s so fresh and you can taste all the fruits. I avoid buying bottled juice as well.

  2. This looks like it will taste delicious. I alternate drinking my lunch and dinner. This will be a nice alternative for lunches.
    I agree about losing the valuable fiber when juicing. It seems to me that all the good stuff is being thrown away.

  6. i have been really into juicing lately – having smoothies for breakfast! i usually put frozen banana, frozen berries, greek yoghurt or coconut milk, chia seeds, honey, large handful of spinach, half an avocado and sometimes a kiwi fruit. pretty much as much as i can fit into the blender! so yummy!

  7. There’s something about the words “cleansing” and “juicing” that now strikes fear within my very core. Because that’s essentially what I’ve been subsisting on since getting my wisdom teeth removed. I do feel a bit healthier, though. :P

  8. I love making green juices! I went through a phase where I was obsessed with drinking them every morning but now I don’t have the time to. They taste so good though!

  9. I did a juice cleanse at the beginning of January and LOVED it! I bought one of those 3-day juice cleanse programs though. You have me seriously thinking about investing in a juicer. Great post!

  13. This way you can drink your nutrition. I’ve tried juicing too.. This one time I made extra and I refrigerated it. I couldnt drink it after. I threw the entire thing. So now I make enough for one time!
