Cleanse 'n Glow Green Juice
Do you ever juice at home?
This is a lovely way to start the day, especially on a more leisurely Saturday or Sunday morning!
Juicing, especially with a veggie-heavy, alkalizing (green) juice, provides the body an opportunity for gentle cleansing and detoxification.
Given juicing removes the fiber from your ingredients (a component of plants that helps slow down digestion), the concentrated nutrients that remain in a fresh-pressed juice are rapidly absorbed by the body.
In consideration of this factor, it is important to keep a juice vegetable-heavy, so as to not shock the bloodstream with a concentrated dose of natural sugars from fruits.
Furthermore, given the fact that homemade juice is such a concentrated form of nutrition, it is important to juice organic produce. By juicing conventional produce, we would also be concentrating the pesticides and other chemicals the produce has been sprayed with.
