Why Detox/Juicing Is Good for You

“A detox is an internal cleanse that helps you to eliminate toxins and waste from your body. The older we get, the slower our system becomes. This is not a natural side effect of the aging process, rather, it is a result of an accumulation
of toxins and waste products. By removing the waste from your body, you give it the opportunity to return to its natural state of health and well-being!”- The Nutrition Mom

I have been trying to save a little so I can afford a one-day cleanse from Juju Cleanse. They dont deliver to my area so logistics is another challenge. But I promise myself I will try them out for at least a day before the year ends. Maybe instead of buying 1/4″ shelf support things for my beading hobby, I’d save it for this!

Benefits of Celery

Celery is one of the veggies that is routinely used in juicing. I am still adjusting to the taste of it. But based on the effects, I would really try hard to keep it down when drinking! I might just have apple-carrot-celery combination.

Let me just say, being able to don a swimsuit while swimming under a jandy pool light is motivation enough.

Hello Summer 2013!

Drinks That Help You Detox

Green tea: Green tea is high in antioxidants, which can fight disease while also helping your liver. And not only that, drinking more green tea will help your body increase the production of detoxification properties.

Lemon water: Start your day with a cup of hot lemon water and it will aid the body in burning more fat. Drinking lemon water will also help your body detox and aid in digestion, so try drinking water and lemon when you first wake up.

A green juice: If you have a juicer, you should be making this green detox juice recipe, which includes ingredients with naturally detoxing properties, like watercress, spinach, lemon, and ginger. Make one every day for a quick, nutritious way to get all your daily greens.

Detox Done!

I am so happy to be able to finish a three-day detox last week! I deserve an eternity band from the husband for this :)

I have been reading up on the benefits of juicing but was a little intimidated and scared if I can do it. With the encouragement of a friend, I delved right into it. I am glad to be able to finish it without giving in to temptation! I gave up rice too, and I have been eating meals without rice (and even bread) for close to 6 days now. It’s hard – especially since rice is a major component of every meal where I live.

Here are the components of my mean green juice:

I have yet to master the correct proportions though. I really gave up lemons + celery because for the life of me I cannot stand it. Everything else I can stand.

I will keep you guys in check what happens next for me :D
