Why this juice is different

Why Juice?

Extracting juice from fruits and vegetables is an ancient art. As far back 8000 BCE there was early evidence of juice production, whereby they took bunches of grapes and extracted its juice; although it is thought that the grapes may have been alternatively used to produce wine. One of the first regularly produced juices was lemonade, appearing in 16th-century Italy, as an import, after its conception in the Middle East.

Its truly an ancient practice.  I tell most clients that I am the consumer not the producer. My husband loves making juices, smoothies and experimenting with different nutrients.   In the beginning his blends were rough.  He has a knack for getting the highest quality superfoods packed into a glass.  10 years ago,  I enjoyed him camouflaging the veggies I didn’t like  eating , it was an easy way to get them in.  These days,  I really not mind the taste. I read that  your palate adjusts and you no longer addicted to foods that are high salt and high sugar content.  Your body and mind wants to eat and drink the good stuff irrespective of the taste.  It gives you energy,  mental calmness and clarity in the most challenging times. Your stress management abilities improve tremendously.
