There is something about Fall that will always have me gearing up for the year in a way that is meticulous and organized and very much school-like.
I always looked forward to the back to school shopping and it’s funny, now looking back, just how excited I really did get buying new 0.7 lead click-pencils & fresh white paper.
I have since traded in my binder for a magic bullet and have felt this need to start the year fresh and new, coming out of summer set up for the ultimate of success!
This reason, on top of living a crazy busy life, has me obsessing over cleansing and detoxing.Cleansing and detoxing are two of the best ways to up your health in major ways. Not only do you give your body a chance to re-set and re-balance, but by focusing on physical health, you are already activating a certain consciousness in the mind that is healthy as well.
We are after all an entire functioning unit and if one area suffers then they all do.
One of my ultimate favourite ways to reset is to Juice.Juicing has become a fairly large part of my life, especially as being a buys person, I find it sometimes hard to get in as many greens as I should be getting.
Now, just to clarify, when I say Juicing I am specifically talking about using a juicer to juice fresh organic produce.
NOT drinking Minute Maid by the carton or reaching for Tropicana, nasty sugar-shiz that they are, you want to drink the nutrients from pure & organic produce that you literally watch turn into a beautiful life-elixir!
Elixir…ya I like Juicing THAT much.Juicing is a quick way to not only get a shot of health, but by focusing on intaking juice as opposed to eating solids, your body is able to give your digestive system a much needed break (trust me, that little motor you got in there is working ALL THE TIME! Give it a rest and see what wonders your body will reap!) and benefit from absorbing all the nutrients that are ready to be sponged up!
Bu juicing, you can also help alkalize your body, which is what you want. Cancer and disease grow in acidic environments, while alkalinity is technically hostile to disease. Cancer cannot thrive in alkaline environments! This one major reason why everyone could benefit from adding a little juicing action into their lives.
That as well as the fact that it tastes so gosh darn delicious.
So this September, Im focusing on re-alkalizing.
By Juicing - experimenting with some amazing recipes as well as prepping for my first home Juice-cleanse I know my body will get the nutritional re-set it needs.
If you are interested in Juicing, I highly recommend the book "Juice" by de Caestro, Gores & Slater as well as "The Big Book Of Juice" by Natalie Savona which have both been sources of inspiration as well as information on creating the ultimate in juices.
Happy September everyone!
Let’s detox it up ;)
