Fall Reset

Fall Reset

  Fall Reset September Detox starts now! When I think of a cleanse I think of spring, cleaning out my garage or my closet, purging the junk accumulated over the past year…and of course getting rid of the winter weight. But what about a fall cleanse? After a summer of indulgence sometimes a one-day detox can be just what the doctor ordered. Perhaps you had a fantastic labor day weekend and need to get back on track, or maybe you have been off track with back to school and need to get back into the routine.  If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms it could be your body letting you know it is time to hit the “reset” button. Allergies Bloating, and/or constipation Weight gain, especially the abdomen Insomnia or poor quality of sleep Joint pain Fatigue or feeling sluggish Low energy feeling of com in down with a cold or flu like symptoms You’re probably saying to  yourself what? she’s nuts, I don’t need to cleanse, I do that after Christmas, why would I want to do this in the fall?  Well as the seasons change so should the way we eat. It’s a new season and a perfect time for a new start, to re-evaluate and start new habits.  Now when I say detox I don’t just mean detox your body…I want you to detox you life!  Pick one day this month to turn off your cell phone *gasp*, shut down the computer, get out of your house with the family and enjoy some of the last of the decent wether we have before...

Which juicer is right for you?

Which juicer is the right juicer for you? Check out this video and let the experts do the research for you. I know I love a blender for some things and a juicer for others. Now you may want to add a few more factors in when choosing a juicer. 1. Which type of juicer is it? Centrifugal juicers -cheap and easy to clean. Due to the fast processing it oxidizes nutrients faster (not a good thing), this means you lose some of the goodness even before it hits your glass. You’re going to want to drink this up right away, no storing. Masticating Juicer – These extract more juice and since they operate at a slower speed you get more nutrients per glass. Seeing as the ingredients won’t oxidate as quickly you can store in a glass, well sealed container for approx 24 hours. Great if you want to make ahead and bring to the office. Twin Gear Juicer – This is my personal favorite, although it is the most expensive of them all it is also the most powerful which means it is great for nut butters and ice cream as well.The juice stays fresh and holds it’s nutrition longer, as a matter of fact you can store the juice for up to 72 hours in the fridge (sealed tight preferably in a glass container – you know the drill) 2. What are you juicing? avocados and bananas for example do not fare very well in a juicer, i recommend a blender for those. 3. Are you wanting to store your juice for a bit in the fridge? Perhaps...
