You Love How Juicing Feels, But It Takes Too Much Time

It’s fantastic news that people are getting the message that a healthy diet should include lots of fresh, leafy greens and a wide range of fruits and vegetables (think all the colours of the rainbow) every day. If you are looking for way to increase both the variety and total amount of fruits and veggies you’re consuming each day, you may well have tried juicing. A cold press juicer is a terrific tool when it comes to making your own juices from scratch. Check out this Juice Recipe.

Celebrities Love Juicing

Plenty of people are extolling the benefits of juicing with proponents including celebrities like Beyonce, Oprah and Gwyneth Paltrow and I’m certainly not saying you should stop (if you have time, try some of Gwyneth’s amazing juice recipes). But on those days when you really don’t have time to fuss and bother with the juicer you shouldn’t go without your greens and the many micronutrients they provide.

Have time to Juice? Here's a couple of Juice Recipes below

What if I Don’t Have Time to Clean the Juicer Each Morning?

So what do you do if you love the healthy effects of all-natural juices but don’t want to have to deal with the hassle of cleaning up? Or simply don’t have the time before work. The reality is, if your juicer isn’t dishwasher friendly (and cold press juicers usually need manual cleaning) it can take 15-20 minutes to take it apart and thoroughly clean all the bits. Should you be getting up earlier and sacrificing precious sleep to add this task to what’s probably already a long list of things you need to get done in your day? Probably not, but hey if you do have time, the benefits are great. (I’ll talk about sleep in another post, but for now, let’s just say getting up earlier to clean the juicer is probably not a good tradeoff). Super Greens ingredients can give you a massive boost towards that health and vitality you're after.

5 Greens Whole Food Vitamin Powder Could Be the Answer

Rather than forgetting about the juicing altogether, have a replacement handy like5 Greens Whole Food Vitamin Powder. Just add a scoop to a glass of water or your favorite juice and in ten seconds or so, you can have a quick and easy substitution to help fill the gap. A green juice like this from this quality greens powder provides you with as many vitamins, minerals and micronutrients as a 100g serving of greens, which is much better than tossing back a random handful of vitamins and hoping for the best. When you consume your supplements in a form that’s as close as possible to their whole, natural, unprocessed state you’re getting the maximum amount of benefits. Too often, when you take vitamins in pill form you wind up not being able to fully absorb and use the synthetic vitamins and they wind up flushing them down the toilet - quite literally! No I am definitely not saying vitamins should not be apart of your protocol, I really believe they should be. I take vitamins too! But you need to make sure what you're getting and that you're taking them correctly!

You Need the Whole Package

The fact is, Mother Nature has done the hard work for us and created beautiful packages in the right formulation with the important coenzymes and cofactors your body needs for optimal health. These important compounds bind with enzymes and help drive the chemical reactions our cells need to keep working properly. These helper compounds are found in whole, natural foods, those that have not been so highly processed that they’ve been stripped of the very components our body needs. Without whole foods and the complex chemical interactions they drive in the healthy body, nutritional deficiencies soon follow.

Life Grip’s 5 Greens powder is a whole food supplement, which means it’s in the class of ‘therapeutic foods.’ 5 Greens provides nutrients in the form that the body can use them best, facilitating uptake into the cells. Bioavailable and high-potency, the micronutrients contained in a whole foods supplement are much more easily absorbed than those from synthetic vitamins.

By all means you should be eating meals that include healthy sources of protein, carbohydrates and fats and your diet should certainly include lots and lots of of fresh (preferably organic) fruits and vegetables, but when life gets complicated and you’re rushing out the door, take ten seconds and mix up a green drink to take along with you! Your body, heart and mind will thank you!

You want your supplements and vitamins to be in their most natural state possible just as nature intended.

3 things to look for when choosing a supplements or vitamin product:

  1. Ingredients List: you want minimal ingredients (only the ones you need, without fillers) and nothing artificial.
  2. You want to know where the ingredients come from, this is very important.
  3. Calculate the cost per serve: total cost / container servings = cost per serve. This is the true cost of any vitamin or supplement.

Don't be fooled by flashy diagrams, infographics and fitness models. Have a look at the container and nutrition table. Is this the best value and quality combined?
