Just Juice

Have you ever tried juicing?

I haven’t. I’ve heard a lot about it, read about the health benefits, seen all the trendy new storefronts opening up – but I’ve never tried it.

Is it a meal replacement? A supplement? A treat? Overall I have some confusion.

As usual, I turned to my pal Google. There are thousands of results – a lot claiming that juicing is the best way to get the vitamins your body needs. Some claim:

  • better skin
  • better hair
  • stable digestion
  • more energy

while other sites share recipes or offer cleanses.

My husband and I have gotten in to a potentially unhealthy habit – whenever we’re out running errands we get ourselves a treat. This is normally a coffee or a tea, but occasionally extends to a treat like a donut or a sugary bar. We normally bring water with us, so we don’t need to stop for that. I think more out of habit than need, we like to take a break from the to do list and grab something for us – hence the coffee stops despite having two cups already at home. So what’s the alternative?

Maybe a juice?

Since I’m not investing in a juicer, I am going to explore a little juicery that I’ve been noticing on the South Shore.

We are both going to try a new treat from Quench Juicery.

As a caveat to this next adventure, I’ll add that I don’t think a one-and-done mentality applies here. Obviously to feel and notice true differences you need to try something routinely. This adventure is just for taste and feel. From there, well have a sense of whether or not we want to try it again or commit to it as part of our regular diet.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
