Keep in step with those health-related New Year’s resolutions with some extra inspiration because it’s National Green Juice Day!
History of National Green Juice Day
While many people start a new year with lots of excitement and fervor, sometimes it can be difficult to stick to those New Year’s resolutions when one cold, dark week of January blends into the next. In fact, studies have shown that approximately fifty percent of Americans tend to break their resolutions even before the month of January ends.
With this in mind, National Green Juice Day is here to remind people about their health goals and give them a little boost of energy to get through the rest of the month – and year!
Evolution Fresh, makers of cold-pressed juices and smoothies, now including the Bolthouse Farms brand, founded National Green Juice Day in 2016 to empower people and spur them on to not give up on their health goals for the year. And, according to Evolution Fresh, one great way to do this is by making a healthy habit of drinking green juice.
How to Celebrate National Green Juice Day
Enjoy observing National Green Juice Day by celebrating in some of these fun and delicious ways:
Drink Green Juice
One super way to get on a health train is by substituting a meal with a glass or bottle of green juice in celebration of National Green Juice Day. Pick up a bottle of green juice at the grocery store and have it for breakfast as a substitute for that sweet, carb-filled pastry. And, while you’re at it, pick up a bottle of green juice for a friend or loved one to share!
Make Green Juice Smoothies at Home
Dust off that blender and get ready to feel great because it’s National Green Juice Day. Whether choosing spinach, kale, celery or wheatgrass, making your own green juice at home can be a joy. Plus, it’s extra fresh, so it offers a super healthy boost for the body and the mind.
Learn More About Green Juice
As it turns out, all green juices are not the same and some of them have much more nutritional value than others. Plus, it is important to read labels carefully because certain juices can be chock full of sugar, which can tend to hijack many types of weight loss goals. But, still, it’s probably better than eating a cookie or drinking a sugary soft drink!
Even so, many green juices are healthy, particularly the variety that is made at home with fresh ingredients! In honor of National Green Juice Day, take a look at some examples of nutrients that may be found in green juice.
Immune System Boost
Spinach, pineapple, kale and ginger are a great green juice combination that can help fight off winter sickness.
Higher Energy Levels
Leafy greens such as spinach and kale contain B vitamins and iron which are beneficial for giving energy.
Improved Gut Health
Certain prebiotics found in fresh juice may help promote a healthy gut and digestive system by supporting the beneficial bacteria living there.
