Celery Juicing

So I’ve heard so many benefits from drinking celery juice on an empty stomach in the morning that I thought I would give it a whirl.

Day 1

Juiced 16oz of celery which is a whole stalk. An hour later I am feeling more alert and awake. My brain feels clear and not in it’s usual foggy state before I’ve had my coffee.

Day 2

Didn’t notice too much of a difference other than feeling more alert.

Day 3

Celery juice tastes a little sour today. Normally it tastes like celery but almost sweet. I actually enjoy the taste of it!

Definitely noticing increased energy throughout the day!

Day 4

I’m more regular than usual. TMI but for the sake of an honest review…

Day 5

Took my celery juice to go. I enjoyed drinking it in the car on the way to my destination.

I think I need to try it for a little longer to see the long term benefits. But I will definitely keep it up! My mom said my skin looked glowy.

I also lost a couple pounds this week granted I did follow a high protein, low carb, low sugar diet. But celery juice is good for weight loss.

Tips for Juicing

Don’t juice the leaves as it can make the taste bitter

Drink first thing in the morning on an empty stomach

Drink 16oz for maximum benefits (juice one stalk)

 

Fun facts

There are many other good reasons to drink celery juice. I encourage you to do your own research.

 

Happy Juicing!

How to stay healthy in 2019

4bd3ba7fd2cc28463c5348f6ed44463c.jpg

It all starts with self care and self love. Take time for yourself… in whatever way that means to you.

Some of the ways I stay mentally healthy are:

Digital Detox

We spend so much time on our phones and never really know when to quit. Make a habit of going without a phone before bed or in the morning when you first wake up. Put down the phone in the am before scrolling on Instagram. Spend this time alone with yourself. Put your phone on the charger at night and read a book before heading to bed. Just simply eliminating the phone during these times will help clear your mind to be productive in the morning and to get a good night’s sleep.

Eat Clean

Be mindful while eating and choose healthier options. Try to do more cooking and make it fun by trying out a new recipe at least once a month.

Relaxation

This could mean using essential oils, lighting a candle or salt lamp, pampering yourself or reading a book while cozying up in your favourite spot.

Reflection

Take time to check in with yourself. How are you feeling today? At this moment? Journalling can be a good way to do some healthy self reflection and to put thoughts on paper.

People

Surround yourself with people who lift you up and support you. Eliminate toxic relationships.

Organization

Staying organized will make you feel calm and at ease. I use a bullet journal simply for keep tracking of my tasks daily + monthly. I have found this to be one of the greatest organizational systems one could use. I also use Google Calendar. Google Calendar is fun because you can colour code all your appointments etc. I’ve started scheduling in everything. I mean everything… from appointments to time for myself to coffee with friends + family. And bonus it syncs up to your phone calendar!

Try to be active

Even if it’s just a small walk every day. Getting out in nature for a quick walk can also do wonders for your mood and overall health.

Celebrate small victories

Enjoy the little things and treat yourself once in a while, whether its a new skin scrub or a coffee.

And of course Travel

Travelling opens your eyes to new experiences and sometimes new cultures. A change of scenery can even boost your happiness.

Never stop adventuring!

xoxo
