Wellness Wednesday #5 (Plus Juicing)
Welcome to this week’s Wellness Wednesday! I’m thrilled to be co-hosting this link-up, so please add your best links below and check out some new great ideas!
First, I want to quickly share with you one of my favorite ways to stay well…Juicing! Not like the kind you hear in sports news, but rather the art/science of sticking fruits and veggies into a machine and drinking up the goodness that squeezes out. Juices are my daily multi-vitamin.
It is very difficult to eat enough fruits and vegetables each day. It can be time-consuming and filling to consume portion after portion of whole foods. Combining many in the juicer, however, packs a glass full of multiple servings of fresh foods. It is always helpful to buy locally-grown and/or organic (sometimes that label doesn’t matter if you know the farmer and how it was grown well without them having to jump through government hurdles to use that term). At least for the Dirty Dozen, when you can!
Here is a delicious one, especially for a morning ‘zing’! A couple of oranges, some pineapple, a few carrots, celery stalks, and some ginger. Play around with amounts, but a general rule for tastiness is to always include something sweet. Apples are usually my go-to, but pineapple does the trick here. Ginger gives it a little spice, so go easy on that, to taste. Simply clean the ingredients, push through a juicer (this is what I use and recommend), and enjoy the fastest way of receiving probably 5-6 servings of nutrients and vitamins in one sitting!
Fresh juices are a wonderful addition to your diet to squeeze in the good stuff, or make for a wonderful ‘cleanse’ or occasional reset/reboot of your body. I share a lot of juice recipes on my Instagram, so please follow along there for more!
