My cravings for morning coffee is gone. I am the kind of person who gets headache if I don’t drink coffee in a day.
I feel great every day.
I lost 3 kilos in three weeks.
My body feels light.
I am motivated to eat healthy foods all throughout the day.
These are some changes that I felt and experienced since I started juicing last 19 July 2014.
For three weeks now,I traded my cup of hot coffee with a cup of warm water with lemon followed by a green juice every morning. My green juice is a concoction of kiwi, green apple, cucumber, celery and green leaves (lettuce, kale or whatever is available).
And oftentimes in the evening I have juice for dinner too. I go by the color of the fruits when juicing for dinner. For instance, I have orange, carrots and apple or pears.
One more reason that propels me to continue is my 3 year old son. He is very picky with food. Feeding him with real food is really a struggle and he likes to eat rice with hot dogs and eggs only, nothing else.
We rely on his vitamins and milk only for nutrients but I know this is not enough. I still prefer him to eat veggies and fruits.
And Eureka! I found the solution – juicing.
Now he is drinking different juice concoction like orange-carrot, pomegranate – apple or sometimes just a plain fresh juice like melon or pineapple. I am so proud of my little boy.
My new best friend now in the kitchen is my Philips juicer. Before I bought this one, I searched about what’s recommended juicer to buy and use. But then I thought that I really don’t need those expensive machines yet because I am a newbie. So I settled with Philips because this is what I can afford.
The last time my sister visited me, she commented that my skin was glowing. I couldn’t think of any reason as I didn’t change my body lotion, soap or creams. The only thing I changed in my daily routine is drinking green juice for breakfast and some juice for dinner. So I credited my glowing skin to juicing.
That’s another reason to continue.
I have no intention to stop juicing soon. I am actually motivated and every week I try to explore new concoctions.
The reason I really wanted to start juicing was to lose weight. Now after experiencing its great benefits, weight lose is not a primary goal anymore. Even I will not shed any pounds, I will still continue with this juicing because it feels good every day. It feels right do drink this green juice for breakfast.
My weekly food budget increases to approximately 20-25% because I am buying now more fruits and vegetables but I don’t mind. The benefits I gained from juicing outweighs the cost it involves.
