It's a New Year and our friends at Ben and Jerry’s have announced new flavors, Harry Potter is getting new covers and here at Miracle in the Green, we have started the year with a brand new website and hope you love our new look. Are you ready for a fresh health start?
We are also kicking off the New Year with a Detox Challenge. Join us for our Annual New Year Detox Challenge also called 10 days of GREEN.
Research has it that only about 7% of most people's caloric intake come from plant food. And we wonder why because it is a well known fact that Plant food is loaded with vitamins, minerals and nutrients that help keep our bodies healthy and fight inflammation and free radicals.
Our goal is to get you adding some more green, particularly Moringa Oleifera, also known as the horseradish tree, (we branded it Oringaa), to your diet for at least ten days. Even better try adding this amazing superfood in a daily green juice or try whipping up an early morning smoothie in a blender. You will be pleased at the results. According to an article published in the Journal of Ecology of Food and Nutrition, Moringa Oleifera's nutrient dense leaves are high in protein with an unparalleled nutritional profile which includes 2 times the protein of yogurt, 3/4 the iron of spinach, 4 times the calcium of milk, 3 times the potassium of bananas. This is the reason Moringa is the perfect meal replacement for those looking to shed some pounds in the New Year and an excellent energy booster too. Check out these Moringa benefits on Mind, Body, Green on the benefits of drinking Moringa. You'll also find that this is a habit you could sure get used to. In the end, you will feel as good as brand new.
We recommend having a glass of green Juice in the morning before anything else. It sets the tone for the rest of the day, leaving you feeling energized and ready to tackle the day ahead.
If you do not have a juicer, feel free to use a blender. The difference between a juicer and a blender is simply quantity. The amount of nutrients you get in a glass of juiced greens and fruits is significantly more if you use a juicer. This is because the juicer, extracts the juice only, separating the juice from the pulp. With blending, the blender pulverizes everything and so you get both the juice and the pulp. So, you feel fuller but compared to what's in your glass of juiced greens and fruits, you have less fruits and greens. Both ways - Juicing and Blending - are excellent ways to keep healthy and vibrant. Are you ready for the challenge?
