After hearing about it from friends, a few months ago I decided to try a juice cleanse, not only to lose a few pounds, but for overall health. I was cautioned that this should not be attempted without the guidance of a nutritionist, so I consulted Sirena, who had come highly recommended. Check out her website www.sirenapellarolo.com
I did not want to make my own cold-pressed vegetable juices, since there are so many places offering this service everywhere, now that juicing is a hot trend. I tried a few and was especially happy with these 2 sources.
JUICE SERVED HERE
They have a “window” in our neighborhood at their production facility
3731 S. Robertson, Culver City 90232 (across from Fedex, South of Venice Blvd)
THE RAW JUICERY
Sold at various farmers markets (cheaper at $20 for 3 juices in plastic bottles)
What I discovered is that juicing is a great way to add more raw vegetables to your daily diet, in combination with a variety of foods, raw and cooked, vegan choices and lean proteins (from animals raised without antibiotics).
Please send us your own experiences with healthy diet regimens.
