Have you tried raw juicing yet? If not, then let us introduce you! A special feature of the breakfasts we serve each morning during our Seaside Spring Renewal Retreat includes raw cold pressed juices. Raw juices are truly a health elixir with many benefits. Let us tell you why!
We could never eat enough vegetables in one day equal to a diet that includes raw juices. Raw means unprocessed. Raw juice is full of live enzymes, antioxidants, nutrients, and amino acids that have not been lost by heating or other processing methods. It is actually like putting pure energy into your body. A juice cleanse can reboot your metabolism and energy, remove metals and other toxins from your body, boost your immune system, and balance your hormones. The healing properties of raw juices can help fight diseases like diabetes and cancer and help to treat high blood pressure.
Ideally, we should consume at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day as part of a healthy diet. This is where the magic of juicing really comes into play. Raw juice allows the body to absorb and utilize more of the essential nutrients of the ingredients. It also lets us incorporate a wide variety of vegetables and fruits that we may otherwise not eat whole. The fruits sweeten the juice and make it more palatable for those who people who do not eat vegetables at all.
Some delicious combinations include:
- The Pink Lady made from pear, beets, ginger and pineapple.
- The Classic Green Goddess has kale, apple, celery, parsley, cucumber and ginger.
- Carrot-Mango juice with a touch of ginger.
Avid juicers are adding cabbage, spinach, collard greens and beets into the mix for optimum impact. If you are ready to begin juicing, there are many websites to get you started. We found some recipes that we are incorporating into our menu from Health Ambition and Choosing Raw. Our local partner in Carolina Beach, Island Wellness Market, is also a knowledgeable resource that you will have access to during our Seaside Spring Renewal Retreat. They will be providing our raw cold pressed juices each morning with breakfast during your stay.
Get ready to feel invigorated and look your best as you incorporate raw juicing into your diet. Once you start you will be amazed at the difference it will make in your life!
