Green Goodness, Sweet Potato Sunrise, and the best beet juice!
When I decided to compete for Miss Alaska USA, I knew I was going to have to do something that would boost my immune system, and give me more energy. Juicing sounded like the perfect way to restore my health by allowing me to add more fruits and vegetables into my diet.
I was first introduced to juicing by a local juice bar. The juice tasted amazing, but at $9.00 a pop, I couldn’t afford more than a few juices a week. As an alternative, I purchased produce and drove to a girlfriend’s house every Sunday to use her juicer. Alas! I had fresh-pressed juice, but again, never more than a few juices a week.
It wasn’t until Christmas when I opened a big, beautiful, cardboard box that my juicing journey really took off. My mother had gifted me a Breville Juice Fountain Plus- God love her for it. It is about $149.00-$200.00 on Amazon and is extremely easy to use. Cleanup is even easier!
I’ve juiced every 3 days since December, and I’ve gotten it to down to a science. (Here’s a hint: put a small plastic grocery bag into the fiber bin for easy cleanup.) I spend about $20 a week in produce, which gives me enough juice for 3 juices per day. I drink a Sweet Potato Sunrise in the morning, a Green Juice in the afternoon, and a Beet Juice before bed. I’ve found that juicing every 3 days is best because juices lose nutrition, and freshness quickly. Pictured above are my Beet Juice, Sweet Potato Sunrise, and Green Goodness.
I’ve done my best to make it easy for you. Before you shop, save this infographic to your camera roll and take it with you!
