The most common question I get at the market by far is how should I drink the juice? Then immediately all the other mini questions follow. Do I drink it all in one shot? Am I to split this up throughout the day? What will happen to me when I drink this?
The answer to the first question and the following questions are the same. It all depends on YOU! It depends on your metabolism. It depends on the your nutritional habits walking into your experience with our juice. It depends on your body chemistry. There are many factors that come into play yet there is one major similarity that is factored into the answer. The one thing we all have in common is that we are all different. We are the same yet different and that is what makes us all so uniquely beautiful.
I offer up to everyone who asks and to some who don’t the following. Start slow. Take a few sips. See how you feel. I often discourage people from suddenly chugging the juice until they have a better understanding of how the juice reacts in their system. For most it seems they have a feeling of “Wow…this feels good!” For some there is that huge burst of energy from your body suddenly and lovingly being bathed internally with large amounts of nourishment. Your body will completely take that right in and happily so. Some people may have a detox reaction. If you have a fast metabolism and normally are running off to the facilities within a few minutes of eating, you may have that same experience after drinking the juice.
As I mentioned, the only true answer is…it all depends on YOU!  So please. Take that moment to enjoy that first sip or two. Swish the juice around your mouth. Allow the digestive enzymes in your mouth start the process of delivering the nutrients swiftly into your system. Nutrients delivered sublingually (under the tongue) will have the benefit of instant uptake into your system as opposed to the harsher climate of your GI tract. That will work as well yet why not take advantage of the instant uptake at least for a sip or two. Then see how you feel.
After you get reacquainted with your body and how it feels about the juice then there are plenty of options. Since there are roughly 5+ pounds of fruit and veggies in each 16 ounce bottle of juice feel free to drink a bottle in one sitting or maybe sip on a bottle throughout the day and in the meantime you will be spreading out those nutrients all day long. Could you imagine just how much healthier we all would be if we ate 5 pounds of veggies and fruit each day. So even a sip or two here and there throughout the day is adding amazing nutrition into your daily regimen. Mom always said “Eat your Vegetables”. Now you can drink them too!
Let us know what works best for you. We always love to hear feedback from everyone!!! Enjoy your week and remember to stay cool and keep hydrated with plenty of clean water as well. For the most amazing water, check out this website We are lucky enough to have an amazing spring right here in Oak Creek Canyon between Sedona and Flagstaff. Between some cold pressed juice and fresh springwater, I can’t imagine anything else more nourishing to put into your body.
I would like to take a moment to wish two people who we love and adore very much, many wonderful blessings as they move forward in their journeys.
Many of you who have frequented the Old Town Scottsdale Market know Katie. Katie is one of Juice Core’s owners and she is the beautiful soul with flowing red hair and always present with a loving smile. Katie is taking some time off as she visits Europe, living a life we all dream of. We miss her on this side of the pond and we look forward to her return. Like a breath of fresh air, she is and has always been a joy to experience. Have fun Katie!!! We love and miss you all ready.
We are also saying goodbye to one of Juice Core’s original friends Sarah J. Sarah has been here in Arizona for the past few years making an incredible impression upon so many of us as well as literally being part of the family. She was a supporter of Juice Core in the very early infancy stages helping work on many of the recipes you enjoy today. Sarah is moving back to Germany in what appers to be a permanent move. With loving hearts we send you off back home a much different person than you arrived. We know your journey is far from complete, yet we are thankful for the times we walked along with you side by side. Many blessings and much more love. Congratulations and we’ll miss you.
We intend to see you all (minus Katie and Sarah) this weekend at both the Old Town Scottsdale Market and the Phoenix Farmers Market. Scottsdale starts at 7 AM for your early heat avoiding risers and the Phoenix Market has Water Misters. A little like an oasis in the desert. Choose your option! Have a great week.
Enjoy in great health and nourishment,
