HEALTH&LIFESTYLE: FRESH SQUEEZED/PRESSED JUICE ONLY PLEASE!
I hope all of you guys’ 2019 has been amazing so far!
Coming into the New Year, I promised myself that I would try to drink as clean as possible. I’ve always had a REAL love for juice lol. Childish…I know, but I just have to have it. I’ve also incorporated more water into my daily drinking diet, which for me is a lot of progress in itself lol. As most of you who follow me on snapchat know…i’ve always been a huge Veggie Juice “presser”….meaning that I make my own juice from vegetables…at home. Pressing my veggies into juice as a “healthy drink” has always been a consistent part of my “diet lifestyle” in the past. Unfortunately though, I would still indulge in Simply Lemonades as my “junk” juice. I love all of the “Simply” brands juices…but they are literally the furthest thing possible from “healthy.” Saying that, I’ve started juicing/pressing fruits, which have now been added in my refrigerators weekly rotation, replacing all of the unhealthy store-bought drinks I used to drink!
My favourite fruit juice flavors so far are simple but delicious lol:
Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
Fresh Pressed Apple Juice
Fresh Pressed Carrot & Apple Juice
Good for the kiddos!
I’ve never been big on giving my son juices. My close friends and family literally think I'm a “mean mom” because i’m pretty “strict” on what I allow him to have..especially “sweets wise”. Yes, I consider juice a “sweet”..afterall it has tons of sugars…natural or not, sugar is sugar in my eyes. With that being said, when I do allow my son to have juice at home, it’s always one of the fresh juiced flavors I listed above. Diluted of course lol. I feel, if he’s going to drink juice..it should be juice in its raw/most natural state with no concentrated junk, added sweetners/flavors or bad sugars. It’s also my way to get him to eat his carrots without realizing itl. You guys know i’m all about sneaking in veggies wherever/whenever I can hehe.
WHAT YOU NEED
The process is simple as usual. I’ve actually done a fresh squeezed orange juice post before…so this is really for the Carrot/Apple juice.
