They are moms. They are warriors. United forever by the tight bonds of motherhood, they share this journey that we hold dear. There are things we universally understand, about this amazing gift of motherhood. That very word, “Mom,” breathes certain unique characteristics, able to transcend our differences, beautifully describing one who gives beyond herself, one who loves greater than she ever dreamed possible.

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in spring. The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century. A day where children all over the world, give thanks to the very humans that performed miracle after miracle to bring them into the world, and keep them safe and happy.

This Sunday 5/11/14 is the day we all come together and reflect on the wonderful, selflessness, and beauty of our mothers. And celebrate the lives of all mothers, old, young, strict, lenient, here and no longer with us… all moms deserved to be treated and remembered as the queens they are.

Benefits and warnings about fresh juice, plus recipes!




Juicing may seem like a new fad, but there are in fact loads of health benefits related to the juicing craze. Everyone is different, and while a juice cleanse may not be for everyone, adding a raw fruit and veggie juice into your daily routine will help you to reap the benefits from all the micronutrients coming from fresh produce.

Juicing/blending is a great way to squeeze fruits and vegetables into your diet if you typically don’t like them. When making juice, you can add fruits and vegetables that are about to spoil. That way, you don’t waste produce, which saves us money.

Using a juicer is different than using a blender, so don’t get the two confused. Juicing removes the pulp and is assimilated by the body almost immediately. 95% of the vitamins and enzymes our bodies need are found in the juice of raw fruits and vegetables? We would need to eat 2 lbs of carrots, 10-12 apples, or 8 lbs of spinach to get the same amount of nutrients you receive in one 16 oz juice. When you drink juice, highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruits and vegetables and giving your digestive organs a much-needed rest.

People tend to think juice is a nutritionally-equivalent replacement for whole fruits and vegetables, which isn’t true. There are certain nutrients that whole produce will give you that you can’t get from the juice, including fiber. The skin and the pulp of fruits and veggies are where the fiber and most of the vitamins and minerals are housed, and if you discard these parts, you’re throwing out the most beneficial portions of the produce. So while juice cleansing can jumpstart your immune system and give your body needed nutrients, you should always consult your physician or dietician before cleansing for an extended amount of time, in order to prevent potential drug and nutrient interactions . If you cut your calories too low because you’re just drinking juice all day, your metabolism may slow down. Then, once you start eating solid foods again, you’ll likely put on weight in the form of fat cells.

The bottom line is freshly-prepared juice can certainly be incorporated into a healthy diet, but it’s not a miracle food that’s going to make you instantly skinny or cure whatever ails you. We’d suggest a raw food diet “cleanse” before juicing for every meal.
