Juiceday Tuesday 🥤🙌!!
I am approaching the festive season with great excitement for all the opportunities I will have to party - eating, drinking and being merry with my nearest and dearest.
On the flip side I am also noticing a part of me which is nervous about falling off the health wagon and becoming sluggish, tired and fearful as a result of eating and drinking foods that don’t contribute to feelings of energy and vitality.
It’s a dilemma 😩😩!!
I absolutely love feeling buzzing with health and energy every day - fuelling my body with all things nutritious – I also love tasty festive treats and a few (dozen) glasses of wine on a night out. I am sure many of you will relate to this.
Sooooo – in the spirit of #balance and #damagelimitation I have decided to have a Juiceday every Tuesday in the run up to Christmas (obviously as Christmas Day falls on a Tuesday this year it will not be happening that day!!). Incorporated into the juices will be my Dream Magic Green, Red and Blue – recipes to follow for all who are interested.
There are many benefits for giving your digestive system a rest from wholefoods and only consuming juices for a 24 hour period. Some of the benefits are as follows:-
· More nutrient absorption as the gut does not have to digest all the fibre that is contained in food. Merry Christmas digestive system – here’s a mini spa break 🙏🏻❤️!!
· It feeds good bacteria to the gut – a healthy gut is a healthy, happy body 🤩🤩!!
· It helps to detoxify our bodies – getting rid of all the nasties we consume on a night out. Goodbye tequila and kebab 🍖🍕🍸🍸!!
· It can help to hydrate us and boost our energy levels – which is always a good thing after a night dancing to Slade and Shakin’ Stevens 💃💃!!
I am starting my first Juiceday tomorrow and have bought in the supplies – which surprisingly cost way less than a days eating would cost me. I will post recipes and updates of the juices I make and how I am feeling as the day goes on.
Might be a good idea to avoid me as I have been known to get Hangry without food 😳😳!!
Wish me luck 💚❤️💙
