Amira on the Benefits of Juicing
November 27, 2017
GRR member and running coach Amira Lerarioextols the benefits of juicing…
I have recently discovered the WONDERS of JUICING – and I love it! I’m hooked!
The benefits of juicing
The HEALTH BENEFITS of juicing are numerous, to mention a few:
DETOX and CLEANSE the body to improve health, and help clear up conditions such as acne, sinus infections
Gives a real ENERGY BOOST
WEIGHT LOSS (keeps you fuller longer so you eat less)
Allows for a lot of different FRUITS and VEGETABLES that you probably wouldn’t eat in a day
IMPROVED SKIN and HAIR for a more youthful look.
How juicing helps me run and feel better
IN JUST A FEW WEEKS of juicing my body has changed to a more lean, toned structure. I’ve always had lots of energy, but now I feel more energized on my runs, and more able to keep pace for those QUALITY RUNS.
I SMOOTHIE my BREAKFAST, ie. (oatmeal, flax seeds, coconut water, blueberries and hemp protein) and LUNCH, and have a healthy meal for DINNER, (quinoa, salmon, spinach).
I also smoothie fruits and veggies for a HEALTHY SNACK – another ADDED BENEFIT – helps keep you away from the junk food!
JUICING allows your body to absorb the nutrients right away, and because it is liquid form, the food is digested at a quicker rate – not sitting around in your stomach fermenting.
I definitely RECOMMEND JUICING TO EVERYONE! HEALTH, STRENGTH, VITALITY, YOUTHFULNESS….doesn’t get better than that!
Great juicing recipes
Don’t have a juicer? Here is a review of the best juicers. And when you’ve got yours, try making one of my favorite pre-run or breakfast smoothies:
1/4 cup uncooked gluten free oatmeal – 90cals
1/2 – 1 cup unsweetened Almond Milk (depending on preferred consistency) – 40cals
1/4 cup Organic Walnuts – 180 cals
1 cup Blueberries – 60cals or a small Banana – 80cals
