Greens: Why Eat Them When You Can Drink Them?

Why try to stuff your face with a bunch of kale, spinach, or Swiss Chard with the hopes of getting all the chlorophyll and other nutrients they carry, to then find out your body isn’t actually absorbing as much as you thought?  

Enter Juicing…

Juicing is SUCH a great way to feed your body the vitamins and minerals it needs to not just function properly but to also feel great on the inside and look fabulous on the outside! 

So many people sadly are blinded by all the propaganda out there when it comes to diets; like avoiding carbs, stay away from fats, etc.  Sometimes all your body really needs is the right amount of healthy disease fighting foods from a beneficial source. I know this sounds so strange, how can a green veggie juice really help fight disease if eating it gives me the same result? 

Eating your veggies and drinking your veggies are two different things.

When you {eat} your veggies, your body has to work hard to break it down which does burn a few calories in the process and also provides some fiber, but all that hard work causes a lot of the nutrients to NOT be absorbed correctly! Which means you have to eat MORE than usual to really get those health benefits you are striving to get.

When you {drink} your veggies, you are digesting all the purest most concentrated form of nutrients sending them straight to your blood stream so your body doesn’t have to  work hard at breaking anything down. Juicing removes the fiber, which while fiber does help keep you full, it also causes the body to work at breaking it down which is what we don’t want to happen. You can juice 2 bags of kale and make 1 big green power house drink and sip it down with ease. You wouldn’t eat 2 full bags of kale all by yourself, would you? 

“Maybe she’s born with it, or maybe it’s the juice!”

Here is another yet amazing green juice that really tasted SO good and made me feel rejuvenated and refreshed right after drinking it:

Hopefully this post has made you rethink the juicing world, and motivated you to start squeezing for health! 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

Is juicing something you already do regularly? If so, how often and do you have any tips of your own? How has juicing affected your health?
