My Passion… My Life… Just Juice… 🍏 🍉🍃

My Passion… My Life… Just Juice…

My passion for juicing did not come overnight. After battling and surviving preeclampsia, juicing became a way for me to take more control over my health. Did you know that a woman who experiences preeclampsia is 4x’s more likely to develop heart disease in the future? On top of that, Blacks having the highest rate of heart disease in the country. These alarming statistics inspired me to change my life….and to help change the lives of others. After starting my own juice journey, I became obsessed with juicing, and quickly saw the benefits it reaped in my own life. I went from 171 pounds to 160 pounds in a month’s time, my kidney levels began to get better and shortly after I was able to end my dialysis treatment after one entire year.

My passion to encourage my community to become better consumers and make healthier choices drove me to start my mobile juice business.
JuiceDefined, LLC is a mobile juicing company servicing the South Florida area, delivering “life in a bottle” to your front door. Our goal is to make the chore of consuming healthier, easier.

Why would you want to juice? Well, the benefits of juicing are endless. See, the way juicing works is, using a juicer (NOT A BLENDER), you’re able to to extract the liquid (or “juice”) from fruit and vegetables, separating it from the fiber. This makes it easier (almost seamless) for your body to absorb nutrients and all the good stuff from fruit and vegetables. This process alleviates your body from exerting the energy it would need to break down whole foods. Ya’ll know about the “itis” right? Well yeah, that comes from your body exerting tons of energy trying to break down food during the digestion process. It makes you tired. It distracts your body from fulfilling its many other duties as well. So juicing energizes the body immediately when it is absorbed into the bloodstream. This makes it easier for your body to break down stored fats (hence, the benefit of weight loss); antioxidants attach to free radicals in the body (hence, the benefit of making it easy to get rid of waste in the body AKA detoxing); and it increases the amount of servings of fruit and vegetables you consume daily (because we all know we don’t get enough of it in our meals daily).

Now, don’t get me wrong, juicing for a beginner can be extremely intimidating. And juicing for a person who does not regularly eat fruit and vegetables can be straight scary; however, it doesn’t have to be. Listen, if I can get my five year old daughter (who was only 3 at the time I began juicing) to drink green juice, I’m almost sure I can get you to drink green juice too!

The first thing you have to do is buy a juicer! Start out with a cheap juicer. Some of my favorite brands are Breville and Omega. These brands can be quite costly, however, there are other brands. Pick one and try it out. Next, buy the ingredients. If possible, purchase organic. If you cannot purchase organic for whatever reason, make sure the produce is fresh (have fun with produce hauls by visiting local farmer’s markets). Once you have the produce home, wash them really good (this eliminates as much of the pesticides and junk that comes with growing foods). Put your juicer together, and get busy!

This recipe (below) I am going to give you is a simple, green and tasty juice.

{{Remember, drinking raw juice is NOTHING like drinking the artificially flavored juice we’re so used to. Natural sweetener is not the same as artificial sweetener. Don’t allow that to scare you or turn you off, okay! Another benefit of continued juicing is the changing of your tongue palate and decreasing desire for artificially flavored food and drinks. But you have to stick it out to see those benefits.}}
