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 somewhere nearby
I used to 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.
