get glowing: new year juice cleanse


Cheers to a New Year! (or whenever you are reading this!) 2019 was quite a great year for me personally and professionally and I watched my family, friends and clients grow and flourish in amazing ways, as I've routed them all along the way.

After a little (much enjoyed) indulging during the holidays, I'm ready to kick off 2020 getting back on track focusing on some good health and wellness, the launchpad for the growth goals I have both in my personal life and business.

First things first, I'm starting with a nice purge. Out with the old and in with the new: a Juice Cleanse that will detoxify and nourish with much needed nutrients.

There has been some controversy about Juice Cleanses, due to the fact that you are consuming less meat derived protein and less carbohydrates during the 3 days- which initially can provide you less energy.

However, the goal of a Juice Cleanse is to give your body ultimate nutrient absorption straight through the blood stream without the solids that stimulate digestion. When the body is digesting foods it is not able to heal and repair itself. This is also why Fasting is popular.



BENEFITS OF JUICING

  • Clear thinking ability

  • Encourages consumption of fruits and vegetables that you wouldn’t normally eat raw or whole

  • Fast and easy absorption of nutrients

  • Glowing eyes and skin

  • Heightened sense of taste and smell

  • Increased energy levels

  • Improved appetite control

  • Provides a healthy rest for your digestive system

  • Strong hair and nails

  • Strengthened immune system

BENEFITS OF A JUICE CLEANSE

  • Weight loss

  • More energy

  • Clear bright skin

  • Deeper sleep

  • Stronger immune system

  • Give your digestive system a break so your body can heal and repair itself quickly

  • Feed yourself pure nutrition that your body can absorb immediately

  • Help your liver and kidneys detoxify your body

Tips for your Juice Cleanse

1. Cut out coffee, replace with matcha green tea or regular green tea.

2. Drink more water to keep your cells hydrated and eliminate false hunger. Drinking water is also important because it transports nutrients to your cells and helps eliminate toxins.

3. Be prepared to not feel great the first day or so. You may have feelings of “hangriness”, headaches, foggy, low energy- but remember, you can get through it and you will be amazed at how much better you will feel following the cleanse.

4. Eat very clean for 4 days following the cleanse. Try to consume whole foods, raw fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. Eliminate processed foods, coffee and sugar as much as possible.

3 Day Juice Cleanse

How to do it:

  • For 3 days consume 6, 18oz juices per day, eliminating any additional foods.
