Jumpin’ Juice Flash!


by Shon Lomax

Thinkin’ about catchin’ a ride on the latest  juice craze? Cleanse? Bandwagon? Before you tag along there are some things you should know. Good things! Wanna lighten your processed food load? Cleanse. Wanna rid your body of toxins? Cleanse. Tired of hearing about pressed juices and cleanses? Yes! I know I am. But here’s the kicker. It actually works. I’m living proof. But don’t  judge me by my waistline. At least not yet.

A great boost to your immune system while ridding it of toxins

I too have fallen out of step with my healthier eating habits as of late. Instead of reaching for all things green, I’m more likely to snag a snack that isn’t so lean. Whether it’s at work or at home food temptation abounds. But seriously though why do all those chemicals taste so good? Not sure. Will definitely ask the man behind the curtain next time I step foot into Foodie Oz. Clearly there’s a conspiracy to keep us all fat and listless. Maybe. On to greener and educated pastures my friends!

If you own a juicer and are juicing in bulk, be sure to store in tightly sealed 16 oz mason jars to decrease oxidation

Instead of daily grazing on chemically laden foods try replacing one meal a day with a fresh juice. Trust me. You will feel better. Even if you don’t own a juicer, local farmer’s markets and Whole Foods offer fresh pressed juice by the cup or gallon. I dig the Farmer’s Market on 3rd and Fairfax in Los Angeles.

Experiment with a variety of fruits and vegetables

If you’re ready to go all the way with a cleanse and not sure all of the steps involved, check out Pressed Juicery www.pressedjuicery.com .

Pressed juice is a great healthy way to go if you’re looking to shed a few pounds in a healthy way. The company offers fresh squeezed juice in different packages to suit your need.
