don’t be a BB and buy pressed juices just for the trend factor… be knowledgeable about the benefits that come with it. we all know juicing is an easy way to get your recommend daily serving of fruits and veg in a glass, but what average Deb doesn’t?

here’s the skinny on what you need to know…

pressed juices are highly alkalizing, meaning they neutralize acid in the body. when your diet is overly acidic, your body isn’t able to repair or detoxify itself causing you to become prone to illness and disease, premature aging, weight gain, acne, and just about everything else out there (no thanks). knowing your bod’s PH level and making sure you’re consuming alkaline foods to stay balanced is paramount.

here’s a list of the top 6 alkaline foods to incorporate into your daily diet…

#1- lemons (try this recipe)
#2- watermelon
#3- organic gelatin (gelatin substitute made from seaweed)
#4- cantaloupe
#5- limes
#6- asparagus

for juicing rookies: store bought juices like Naked contain virtually no nutrients due to the pasteurization process. stick to your local juice bar or invest in a cold-pressed juicer like this gem.
