When you think of November, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Turkey? Cranberry sauce? Dressing? Yep. We think of Thanksgiving too.
Thanksgiving is a beautiful time to share delicious food with our closest loved ones while creating memories that will last a lifetime. But there is a downside to this joyous occasion and that is the sluggishness and heaviness we all feel from overindulging on high calorie, high fat foods. With that, we introduce the 21-day Daily Greens Challenge.
Jumpstart your health before the holidays by consuming a Daily Greens juice a day. It’s a great way to achieve optimal nutrition and invest in healthy eating practices before an inevitable Thanksgiving Day slump. With each 12-ounce Daily Greens juice you drink, you are consuming 4.5 pounds of organic produce!
Are you up for the #DGChallenge?
This month’s featured juice is RENEW. This juice not only tastes refreshing it’s also one of our most hydrating juices. The added Himalayan salt creates an electrolyte balance in the body as well as increasing water absorption abilities. The ingredients of celery, dandelions greens, pineapple all infused with lime and watermelon juice (with a hint of spearmint) leads to a super tasty, hydrating juice.
We are big fans of watermelon here at Daily Greens and not just because of its incredible taste. Studies have revealed that watermelon contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, and a cancer-fighting agent. Watermelon also contains L-citrulline, an amino acid that aids in muscle repair and cucurbitacin E, a triterpenoid, which blocks the activity of the pain and inflammation, making RENEW an excellent post-workout recovery juice.
Celery is also a beneficial component of RENEW. It’s a good source of antioxidants and beneficial enzymes. High in vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, folate, and Vitamin B, celery makes for one of the healthiest ingredients we can use in our juices. By providing a raw dietary fiber that boosts digestion and weight loss, it acts as a diuretic and reduces bloating. And to top all that off, it also is a HUGE help after a work out because of its high percentage of electrolytes which prevent dehydration.
Another beneficial ingredient (and one that you might find surprising!) are dandelion greens. These greens are probably one our best sources of iron, containing twice as much iron as spinach. They have large doses of Vitamin E and riboflavin. And, if your post work-out drink could not get any better, dandelion greens have been shown to inhibit interleukins and other immune molecules which trigger inflammation.
As always, all of our ingredients are certified organic and are NON-GMO, maintaining our commitment to you to make the healthiest product we can. But the best part about RENEW is that it tastes fantastic. With a hint of lime and pineapple making it truly sublime. It is one of our best sellers and one that you can drink after your workout and the rest of the day too.
