Summers in California // So why do Californians love their juice so much!? 🤔
I think it's safe to say, Californians have a stereotype, especially come summer time that we are known for. Sunny beach living, bronze and glowing skin, in shape bodies and busy but laid back attitudes. Why?
Well let's break it down, like any stereotype it's not a one size fits all but our lifestyles have a lot to do with our weather and how conscious we are of diversity and toxicity. We must be open before we can learn about anything, wouldn't you agree? And California is very open minded. So we drink juices but not just any juices, they are cold pressed veggies and fruits like the one I have here, jam packed with 🍍🥒🍋🍏(funny there's not many veggie emojis I just realized). The reason is contrary to the assumption that food is where we get our energy from, modern life has turned the processing of foods by the body into something that is exerting, often draining with the way we work and try to keep up with life with pre-packed meals. We are constantly eating, munching whether we get up from our desks or not, sitting in the car, breathing car exhaust, air-conditioing systems, using products and food with added or unknown ingredients for preservatives etc. We're living in a world designed to sustain a lifestyle we weren't necessary originated for.
Food and the processes connected with it consume a big portion of our daily energy reserves. Digestion, absorption, utilization of nutrients; the metabolising of food sometimes needs to be supported. Enter juices! Juices are packed with nutrients but in a form that requires less energy for our body's to metabolize. So more energy is freed up to process, rebuild and eliminate toxins, or left over fat etc. This is why some people fast as well. Juices still deliver nutrients to the body but in a much simplified way to compliment what you are already eating. Juices need to be primarily vegetables with added supplements of fiber (magnesium) since there is no fiber in juices. And don't forget your probiotics!
