Fresh pressed juices are becoming more and more popular, but they’re also expensive as fffffff@cckkkkk. $8 for a bottle? $200 for a cleanse?? chu are INSANE.
It’s nuts. But like, they’re also really freaking good and really good for you. The juices are packed with vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and alllll that good shiz. SO WHAT’S A GIRL TO DO? Well, you could do what I did for a while and buy them, convincing yourself its okay because it’s an investment in your health. Or, you can not be an idiot and buy a juicer! (Groupon is having some great deals right now. Just be sure to look at the reviews and do some research on what’s the best kind for you. I have an Omega and love it! )
If you’ve never had a juice before, I get that you will probably/definitely not just buy a juicer. I’d recommend first buying a juice and seeing what all the fuss is about. You will slowly get addicted and realize you can’t afford the habit. At that point you will be left with no other option but to buy the juicer.
If you think I’m really weird and still need some convincing on why to at least try one, here you go:
1. CHU GON FEEL HIGH
Like better then coffee high. Better then oxy high. I don’t know what it is-probably all the crazy little antioxidants in the #kale but you’ll legit feel giddy and empowered and ready to start your day. I’ve recently been weaning off coffee and replacing it with green juice in the morning and it’s been AWESOME. (jk getting off coffee sucks, but the green juice has been helping)
**NOTE: make sure it’s not just a sugar high. If you’re loading your juices with a bunch of fruit and like one piece of spinach, you are cheating and no one likes a cheater. Try making your juices with mostly vegetables and one piece of fruit; two if you’re weak.
2. CHU GON LOOK GOOOOD
All the health benefits of juice will make your skin GLOW. Why? Because it hydrates you, more than water. All the good stuff in the veggies will go straight to your #epidermis making it nice and dewey. Throw the healthy fat of an avocado in there and randos on the subway may start rubbing your face. You know you like it but it drives you insaneeee……
3. YOUR PEE WILL TURN GREEN
No it won’t you weirdo.
4. IT AIN’T JUST SOME HIPPIE SHIT
You don’t have to be a vegetarian living in Brooklyn to drink green juice. BE YOUR OWN PERSON. Green juice is the best hangover cure I have ever found. 1000% better than Gatorade or “Vitamin” Water. Probz because it has actual electrolytes…
5. YOU CAN USE THE LEFTOVERS
Even if you have your own juicer, it can be an expensive habit. Make the most of it and don’t throw away the left over vegetable pulp (I hate that word). There are so many different recipes you can use it in- check out my homemade veggie burgers here! You could also plant it or something but that IS some hippie shit.
Anyone else like to juice?? Just me?? kk.
