This year I succumbed to the juicing ‘thing’. Having seen countless pictures on Instagram of people’s jars of dark green sludge I wondered what the heck was the big deal… (I mean really)?! But a few months ago after a little research into the health benefits of ingesting so much goodness into the body in such a pure form, decided to get myself a machine and give it a whirl.
My health is something I’m committed to, it’s a deliberate choice and, certainly for the last ten years would say we eat well so I wasn’t expecting a radical change of any kind. As with many health decisions, it’s probably more a case of all the illnesses and ailments we don’t get as it is seeing a drastic difference in any way, (a post I wrote last year looks at this a little more called Wellbeing and the compound effect of Invisible Habits). I found I enjoyed the taste and now juice every other day; visits to the doctor might be twice a year across the family; colds and coughs etc rare… so something must be working!
If you’ve considered juicing I’d recommend you go for it – there’s really nothing to lose and your bodies only going to be better for it.
