We’re guilty of overindulging– ESPECIALLY during the holidays! So to start this New Year with a new you with fresh pressed juices and smoothies from Pure Green! The same team behind Liquiteria (they know a thing or two!) with three locations in Financial District, Midtown East, Greenwich Village, and more to come..making their handcrafted smoothies and cold-pressed juices more accessible. Offering many different reasons to opt for a juice or smoothie over a sandwich, such as:
A satisfying meal supplement on-the-go.
Replenishing your energy after a workout.
Getting your daily intake of live enzymes, vitamins and minerals fruit and vegetables.
Looking to curve your diet.
Coffee substitute– (every New Yorker’s addiction)
Another alternative after the New Year is to attack a full detox cleanse. Instead of reaching for a hair-of-the-dog at the beginning of the New Year, opt for one of Pure Green’s customized cleanses. After speaking to a pure coach, they were able to discuss the plan I needed based on my goals and helped me choose which cleanses would be the most beneficial. I’ve never had the luxury of speaking to a coach prior to purchasing a cleanses since most are already pre-batched. This helped cater to my specific end results. After the cleanse, I felt rejuvenated, lighter and more alert. Here are some of the reasons for my detox/change:
Increase Energy. Since the toxins are stored in major organs, detoxification will help these areas the most. The liver and stomach for example will be more productive providing the lighter feeling and more energy.
Less Alcohol, which means better for the liver! This was also a personal decision to decrease the amount of alcohol consumed. In New York, it’s so easy to ‘go for a drink’ on any given night. This gave my body a break and therefore contributed to a healthier lifestyle–making it easier to wake up for a workout.
Weight loss! Hello! Same as the other points, this all contributes to the overall look and feel of your body. Less alcohol, means less empty calories– plus your stomach should shrink from meal substitution. Small bites (clean eating only!) are ok.
You will have your own reasons to hit the reset button and start 2017 with a green slate!
