To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. -Buddha

Juicing has been an important part of my journey to wellness over the past 4 years. I spent most of my life overweight and struggling to find the right “diet” for me. I realized that to maintain a healthy body, you must maintain a healthy lifestyle. Mind. Body. Spirit.
If you’re not familiar with the outstanding benefits of juicing, some include increased energy, instantly absorb loads of nutrients, and boosts brain function.
Juicing is a great way to detox the body and cleanse it of impurities, but I like to drink a daily juice to allow me to get all the nutrients I need and continue the health benefits. It’s almost impossible to eat that many veggies in one sitting, but with juicing you can easily get all the nutrients into your body quickly.
The thing that turned me on to juicing was the idea of raising my pH. I discovered that eating a plant-based diet helped to raise my body’s pH and potentially prevent all kinds of unwanted illness.
“The countless names of illnesses do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause…too much tissue acid waste in the body!” – Dr. Theodore A. Baroody in his remarkable book Alkalize or Die
Benefits of a Balanced Body pH:
- Glowing Skin
- Better Sleep
- Radiant and abundant energy
- Good digestion
- Gives body a natural high
- Mental alertness
- Reduced colds, headaches, and illness
- Reduction of candida (yeast) overgrowth
- Boosts the effectiveness of certain types of chemotherapy
- Less arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular problems
WELLNESS RESOURCES // I gathered a few of my favorite resources that will help you to start your plant-based wellness journey below.
This is the Hamilton Beach Juicer that I’ve used for the past 4 years. I’ve tried the masticating juicers and a few other cheap-o’s in the past, and this one is still by far my favorite juicer. It’s easy to clean, well priced, and has a 3″ wide mouth to allow for large veggies without having to spend time cutting them to fit.

I have a Beeville at home and find it easy to use. My favorite juice to make at home is a mixture of: kale, spinach, green apple, cucumber, celery, lemon, and ginger. That’s my “go to” juice, but tomorrow’s will combine the fruits and veggies I want to get rid of! I hate wasting food, so this is an easy way to avoid doing so.
Loved your juice video. I am going to try it! Gotta go get a juicer this weekend!! Thanks Brit!! I am so happy I found you! Ps love my hair as well!!
Lonna, I’m so happy we’ve connected as well! I always enjoy our time together. I HIGHLY recommend the juicer listed above. I’ve burned through a few of them and like I said before, the Hamilton Beach has lasted me about 4 years. Lots of love your way! xo
