When you drink a green juice, your cells soak up the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients much faster than if you were eating a regular meal….literally within 15-20 minutes!
This is because all of the fibre is removed, making digestion much easier and faster.
Who’s IN for the Green Juice Challenge!? Say “I’m IN” and post the recipe you plan to try below!
(Because juices digest so quickly, it’s very important NOT to juice with a lot of sugary fruits. Your blood sugar level will rise (SPIKE) much more quickly than if you were eating these fruits whole.)
I love smoothies, smoothies take a little longer (2-3 hours) to digest than juices, but still no where near as long as a regular meal which can take up to 6-8 hours.
Let’s cleanse and pack our bodies with healthy goodness by trying a new green juice or smoothie this week.
By switching up the foods we eat on a regular basis, we’re getting a more complete nutritional profile in our diets.
