Let’s get real.
Nik and I (and Oliver) eat a very clean diet 99% of the time. Yet during the holidays, we love to indulge a little bit. Even though we still eat whole plant-based foods, the amount of food we consume during the holiday season is usually more than usual – which we are okay with. After all, being plant-based doesn’t mean that you have to deprive yourself of an occasional treat or be PERFECT all the time.
Back on track.
If you have overindulged during the holidays and/or experiencing symptoms such as tiredness, bloating, gas, constipation, frequent colds and flu, skin problems, weight gain, and sugar cravings, you might want to consider including a green juice into your diet. All these previously mentioned symptoms are your body’s way of saying it has been overloaded with waste matter and toxins. It is a warning for you to take better care of yourself. There is no better time than now to start! Drinking fresh juice every day can do wonders to the recovery of your body’s organs and will help in the prevention of various health ailments.
