I love juicing (!!) – but there’s so much involved (preping all of the fruits + veggies, time – something I don’t have a lot of, and clean-up – I seriously have to soak + scrub the machine 5 times before it’s clean) that I rarely do it. I wish I had the time but with a very busy boy, I just don’t.
And because I don’t juice myself but spend money on raw-pressed juices that someone else juices for me, I consider myself a bit of a raw-pressed juice connoisseur.
I had the opportunity to try local company, Alive Juices over the holidays. I couldn’t be more impressed with the overall package Alive Juices has to offer. From custom juice plans, to excellent customer service, to free delivery + bottle pickup, there’s no reason not to try Alive Juices.
Made to Order. Gluten-Free. Vegan.
Alive Juices come in 8 unique flavors. Each flavor provides unique health benefits (heart, bones, vision, protection against cancers etc). Each flavor contains different produce, but they all have Big 4 – Apples, Ginger, Garlic and Lemon. These are well researched disease fighters, that go above and beyond in keeping us healthy.
Each juice has roughly 200 calories – so it’s healthy while keeping you full and on-track for your 2015 goals.
I had a chance to try 4 different flavors:
#1 Postive Karma: Big 4 + Cucumber, Celery, Spinach, Cilantro
#4 Detox Mantra: Big 4 + Carrots, Beet, Kale, Cilantro
#5 Guru’s Greens: Big 4 + Romaine Lettuce, Bokchoy, Collards, Fennel
# 8 Morning Sunshine: Big 4 + Squash, Cilantro, Pineapple
While all flavors were great (I love Ginger & Lemon), Postive Karma + Morning Sunshine were my favorite (I still crave pineapple as much as I did when I was pregnant with Mr. President). I definitely had more energy (something I need even more of) and felt great! Of course I couldn’t do a full cleanse (juice-only) since I’m pregnant, but I used these juices to jump-start my day and carry me through healthy eating and options. When I needed a pick-me-up, I snacked on the nut mix provided with each cleanse. I’m a huge fan of Alive Juices!
If you’re thinking about starting a juicing plan or just want to try a few flavors, Alive Juices is your go-to. There’s a plan and flavor for everyone. And if your excuse is that you’re “too busy” (which is often my excuse), this is the perfect option – custom plans, great flavors, and FREE delivery.
These are safe to drink during pregnancy (I’d be in big trouble if raw-pressed juice wasn’t part of the plan) – and often encouraged because of all of the healthy benefits.
