The Real Girls of Raw Generation: Confessions of Hardcore Herbivore

Speaking from personal experience, even a 100% plant-based diet doesn’t guarantee the same awesome results as habitual juicing. Often, I find myself hesitating to use the label “vegan” to describe myself. It seems to have acquired a negative connotation in so many people’s minds. They associate veganism with rabbit food, deprivation, and tofu (side note- soy is the worst for a variety of reasons and I won’t eat it). But I’m far too self-indulgent for any facet of my everyday life to be rooted in a philosophy of deprivation. I prefer to think of myself as a hardcore herbivore. An impassioned pro-plant prophet. A crusader for chlorophyll.  I’ve been vegan for about 4 years now, however, it wasn’t like I...

5 Healthy Ways to Fall More in Love with Yourself

“If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either” -- Mandy Hale Self-love is the foundation of true beauty, health, and well-being. Nourish your mind, body, and spirit with these 5 healthy habits: 1. Drink more water! Often we confuse dehydration for hunger and end up overeating. Hydration makes a huge impact on your wellness, weight, beauty, and the rate at which you visibly age.  2. Take more walks. Exercise doesn't have to be strenuous to benefit your well-being. Just a 30 minute walk daily will give you an endorphin boost, tone your legs & glutes, maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of illness, and help alleviate depression. 3. Listen to music that you...

Is Frozen As Good As Fresh?

I wanted to answer this question to clear up some confusion/concerns about why we freeze our juices. Occasionally, we get customers contacting us because they were unaware that we freeze our juices and ask us questions like, 'isn't it supposed to be fresh?'. Here's the deal. Because we don't use any preservatives or heating techniques (pasteurization, gentle pasteurization, or high pressure processing {HPP}) the shelf life is roughly 3 days if kept in the refrigerator. Occasionally, they will last longer, but we can accurately say that all of our juices will be fresh for 3 days. That being said... 3 days is not enough time for us to make the juice, get it to you, and give you enough time to drink it...

Going Raw for Weight Loss? Here's How!

You've heard that raw foods are the best thing for your health, beauty, weight loss and weight management, but aside from fruit and vegetables, what are you actually supposed to eat on a raw diet? And do you need to eat 100% raw in order to see benefits?  The point of eating a partial to fully raw diet is to give your digestive system a rest and to replenish the nutrients your body needs to be healthy and vibrant. When your body senses that it is getting the optimal nutrition from raw foods, it switches out of famine mode. When you eat food devoid of nutrition your body holds onto fat. Once you start eating the right nutrients (found in raw foods) it releases...

Healthy Hangover Cures

“When people tell me ‘You’re going to regret that in the morning’, I sleep in til noon, because I’m a problem solver.” Let’s be honest- you’re no Puritan. Sometimes you’re going to have a cocktail. Or four. You don’t need a lecture. You need a healthy fix. So here’s what to do if and when you gasp awake like, “WHAT THE HELL DID I DO (to my body) LAST NIGHT?!?”: RE-HYDRATE! Alcohol depletes liquids from the body. Hydration is pivotal to overcoming the hell that is a hangover and also helps dilute any impurities remaining in your stomach from the night before. Coconut water is a great option for hydration because it is full of electrolytes. GO BACK TO SLEEP....

New Review on NewBeauty.com

The benefits and pitfalls of juice cleanses have been debated by many experts over the past few years. Some nutritionists say they are a way to get more phytonutrients from fruits and vegetables than you would normally get and that they give your digestive system a much-needed break.
