I’m participating in the Evolution Fresh blogger campaign and received compensation as part of the program.
Like so many, I set a goal for the New Year to take better care of myself. I’ve really been working to carve out more time to relax and sleep, because I’ve been burning the candle at both ends for so many years. By giving myself a little more breathing room, other healthy habits fall into place like dominoes: I’ve always struggled with drinking enough water and hitting my daily serving recommendation of veggies, and so far this month, I’ve been knocking it out of the park.
One of the ways I’ve been getting enough veggies is by mixing it up: In addition to keeping a variety of veg on hand, I’ve also been utilizing juices so that I can get my full serving of veggies even if I’m rushing around or not that hungry. So when I was invited to take the 3 Days to Green Movement, I knew this would fit in perfectly with my 2015 resolutions!
This movement to “Go Green” is being spearheaded by Evolution Fresh, who boast a full line of green juices which are now available at Safeway, my main grocery store. I headed down to Safeway earlier in the month to pick up a few Evolution Fresh juices and take my own three day challenge! I decided to try Organic Sweet Greens And Ginger, Essential Greens With Lime and Sweet Greens And Lemon.
I began my three day challenge last Monday, and sat down with a bottle of my new juice as part of my afternoon snack. Each bottle is packed with veggies such as kale, spinach, cucumber, celery and more, so I was excited to add it to my routine. “Green” juice is fairly new territory for me, and it is something of an acquired taste for me. In fact, Evolution Fresh has some tips on adjusting to greener waters if you’re a newbie like me! Evolution Fresh green juices certainly taste healthy and it was fun getting to try them out. I definitely feel better when I’m eating a proper amount of fresh vegetables, and I really appreciate being able to turn to vegetable juices as a way to supplement if I don’t have time to cook up a big bowl of greens for dinner. Not to mention, it’s a lifesaver if you’re on the go or travel a lot like me!
