Whether you vowed to eat better, get healthier, etc. you can start your day off with our Sunrise Juice. You’ll love the zip and zing it adds to our morning routine.
Dr. Oz said this about juicing:
There are many health benefits of drinking freshly juiced fruits and vegetables. It’s a great way to add nutrients from the fruits or vegetables that you normally wouldn’t eat. Fruit and vegetable juices retain most of of the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals (phytonutrients) that would be found in the whole versions of those foods. These nutrients can help protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer and various inflammatory diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis. Valuable compounds called flavonoids and anthocyanins are abundant in a variety of fruits and vegetables and guard against oxidative cellular damage, which comes from everyday cellular maintenance and is exacerbated by exposure to chemicals and pollution.
Last fall, we bought a Breville Juicer after watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. (You can watch it on Hulu here. ) This documentary by Joe Cross follows his journey to improve his diet and overall health with juicing. He made an amazing transformation while juicing. After getting our juicer and juicing every morning for a week, we had more energy, less “foggy” mentally, and just felt better. We continue to juice a few times a week and have loved it! How many of you juice? I’d love to hear what your favorite juice combinations are. Please tell me in the comments section below.
This is our Sunrise Juice. It’s a great juice for breakfast. It’s sweet with citrus, tropical fruit, and carrots. The carrots add nutrients and add a rich orange color that my kids really like. It’s also chock full of vitamin C which is great to help fend off that winter cold.
