Hello Ladies & Gentlemen!
Have you ever drank freshly squeezed juice? Besides orange juice? If you have, you know why I'm so excited about juicing! If you haven't, get with the program!!! You're MISSING OUT! I was introduced to juicing by my grandma in Miami. She liked to make apple and carrot juice in the mornings and they were so good but besides that, I never thought seriously about incorporating it in my own life. That was until I saw the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. If you haven't watched it, do it! It's on Netflix. Amazing story of a man who is healed of an autoimmune disease by doing a juice fast. The change is remarkable!
This week I have been feeling a little bloated from eating too much heavy carbs like breads and pastas. (cut me some slack please! It was National Pasta Day on Wednesday!!!) So, in efforts to give my tummy a break for the evening I decided to make some homemade juice and "drink" that for dinner. I made a video of the whole process for you all. I hope you find it helpful if you're thinking about juicing! I truly hope you will give juicing a chance. Your body will thank you for bathing it in the nutrients it's craving and your health will show its appreciation by giving you a long and happy life.
P.S. 1) Pardon the awkwardness. 2) Correction: Contrary to what I said in the video, you cannot juice ANY food. For instance, you probably will not get much juice from a pizza roll or a hot pocket. But on a serious note, potatoes and yams probably won't taste so good either.
