I’ve been on a wellness journey for 10 years.
I was overweight my entire childhood and
When I got to college I took weight loss more seriously.
It took me 4 years to lose 80 pounds.
I took my time.
I enjoyed college.
Gym access got hard as I moved further off-campus.
I spent a month in Europe.
I earned University Honors, so I was getting my work done too.
Adding my weight loss to my list of senior year accomplishments
Since then I kept trying other health regimens to maintain my results.
One time, I juiced 3 times a day, for 30 days.
My skin was glowingggg ✨✨
My short term memory was sharp— I could easily recall things.
And I never felt bloated
I remember missing the action of chewing too.
So I started chewing gum lol.
I wouldn’t juice to that extreme ever again tho because it’s just not manageable long-term
but I definitely added juicing to my wellthy lifestyle moving forward.
Cleaning the juicer so often got annoying too, can you imagine?
And bathroom trips were different, not uncomfortable lol— just different.
I tried different juice combinations so I didn’t get bored and realized
The most simple combinations were the best.
Below are a few of my fave juice combinations:
Kale, Celery, Spinach, Cucumber, Pineapple, Ginger, Lemon
Beet, Carrot, Pear, Pineapple, Orange, Lemon, Ginger
Carrot, Orange, Turmeric, Celery, Ginger, Granny Smith
You can make these at home with your own juicer,
or go to Balence- Brome Modern Eatery.
I work near there, downtown Detroit, and go like some of ya’ll treat Starbucks
What’s the difference between juicing and blending?
Juicing removes the fiber/ skin of produce, leaving only the juices— which also get into your bloodstream faster and digest easier.
Blending contains everything, and sometimes fiber can be a lot to break down.
I don’t think one is better than the other.
It’s all about self preference, health goals, and what your body needs.
Juicing is definitely worth exploring if you have not.
Feel free to ask me about my journey below.
