Fresh Juice

Most of the time, I try to focus on being healthy.  By most of the time, I mean when I have access to a fully functioning kitchen (dorm life was a rough time).

Basically, this means one of my meals consists of a smoothie.

I have a love/hate relationship with them because they're super filling.  I guess that's normally a good thing, but sometimes I'd rather have a lighter option.

Cue the juice!

I love, love, love fresh juice.  It tastes amazing and it makes you feel great.  The perks about drinking fresh juice is that it allows your body to absorb more of the nutrients (except fiber), and absorb them quickly.  You're also able to pack a lot more food in the juice than you could if you were to eat it whole.

The best part? You can sneak in vegetables that you normally don't eat, and you won't even be able to taste them!

At this point, I normally run into another problem: actually juicing everything.

Juicers are a pain; like, a really big pain.  They get incredibly messy and are hard to clean.  Not only does the pulp get everywhere; but with my juicer, it really gets everywhere.  I'm not a fan of fruit/vegetable particles lodged inside some hidden compartment of my juicer.  Gross.

So when I'm not feeling the juicer, cold pressed juice is my next best (and most chosen) option.

I personally really like Suja juices, but when I'm at home I'll pick up some Evolution Fresh juices from Starbucks.  There are no stores in my hometown, that I know of, that sell cold pressed juice (there's no Whole Foods--sad, I know); so thankfully Starbucks now carries some.

Do you drink cold pressed juice?
