So by now all you know I juice juice juice! This is a follow up to my previous post on Juices to Shrink Endometriosis. Of course juicing on your own is great but now I have a 16 month toddler running around and I’m pregnant again! My hormones have made me super tired and this time around, I’m unable to nap during the day due to my overly energetic toddler. I have found that asking other outside companies to juice is insanely expensive. Many of them market themselves as this “cleansing” expert and markup the juices by 300%! My savior? Whole Foods. Whole Foods has now started to make fresh juices daily! It’s not lemonades and orange juices anymore. I was overjoyed I bought three of their largest sizes home to try and it tastes FRESH, REFRESHING, and JUST LIKE WHAT I MAKE AT HOME. At $16 per half a gallon, I think it’s worth it. I think to juice that amount, it costs me about $12 so for $4 for labor and not having to wash the machine after, it’s worth it! Plus, they have a lot of ingredients in there. These three flavors are my favorite: Green-Aid, Alternative Fuel, and Eye Opener. I usually mix in half Eye Opener with half Alternative Fuel if I’d like a fuller drink and if I just wanted hydration, I drink plain Alternative Fuel and it’s crisp and refreshing. Ingredients of each juice are on the label. Absolutely fantastic!
I don’t know if it’s because I’m pregnant but I crave juices now more than ever. It’s what I think about even before sleeping, when I wake up and throughout the day. I guess the body tells you what the baby needs!
