Juicing, The New Way To Healthy, What About The Waste?
Written by: Diana Renee, owner of Embody Pole Fitness
I love health fads, can’t help it, I’m a healthy girl. It’s what moves me, sends me in new and interesting directions. Newest fad, well new to me, JUICING! My brother got me into and I LOVE! What I don’t love is throwing away all the fiber and vegetable left, wasteful and just seems wrong. Sooo, I made soup. Yep, Chicken Rice Soup! Turned out so delicious I thought I’d share my recipe. Along with a few benefits I’ve found with juicing. Seven is my lucky number!
Control of my sugar intake. My name is Diana and I’m an M&M Addict. Since my Juicing Journey has begun I’ve been able to all but give up my beloved, but unhealthy, M&M’s.
I found myself full of energy. Much more energy, no 5 Hour Energy Drink necessary!
I was more consistently positive and cheerful, no matter what come my way. I always try to see the best in every situation. I think the juicing has just made it that much easier.
I would wake up feeling sharp and well rested, even if I had less sleep. True, true. No more coffee for the new Diana, Orange, Apple and Carrot Juice=Super Diana!
The juices flooded my body with so much nutrients, I rarely felt hungry. Definitely getting my fill of vitamins!
I also noticed a heightened sense of taste and smell. Yes, everything TASTES! Could be attributed to the lower sugar consumption, but it all works together to make a better Diana.
My skin started to glow, my hair and nails grew faster. People started to comment on how much younger I looked for my age. Who can’t use younger? At 43 girl, I take all the GLOW I can get!
