LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD
The man who said those wise words was the hip Hippokrates
The brand who uses those wise words as their slogan and philosophy is a hip juice brand like HEYLIFE is.
HEYLIFE is a Zürich, Swiss, based cold pressed Juice Company that gives us better juices for a better life!
COLD PRESSED because they wanna keep the precious nutritions in there for us to make us of them when we slurp those delicious raw ingredients with superfood elements down our throat.
The juices therefore are rawtastic, superlicious and 100% natural and FRESH. When ordering them you chose the date you want to have them and they arrive ready on top in the morning in a cooling box so nothing goes the wrong way and there is no loss of vitamins or antioxidants.
As Hipo already said…A REAL MEDICINE THY JUICE.
I had the juicy pleasure to test a one day juice trial and chose out of all the 1-Day Juice Cleanses the hardest one:
They mention on their site that the green one is for advanced juicers- being ready for the ultimate cleanse and purification.
YES I WAS!! I don’t know if I am advanced, I rarely juice, just smooth, but after years of experiences with health food and different detox methods I felt experienced enough and I was always looking for juices that are more vegetable based then fruit loaded.
So,there they were, the green veggie ones, ready for me to clean my system. MY BODY WAS CRAVING THE GREENS AND SO I SAID YES!!
Accompanied by a nice juice planner with a schedule when to drink what I felt I have everything in control.
1. Hit the Lime
That was easy and a usual thing for me, since I anyways always start my day with a warm glass of water with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Now I even had the luxury that they had a dose of lime juice ready filled up into a little mini bottle shot. Very handy…
Breakfast time, I took the Green magic ELIXIR that contains spinach, cucumber, apple, lemon, ginger and spirulina.
It made me feel fresh and ready, noted: love the warming ginger taste! But as a I knew I have 2 yoga classes ahead of me, and treating breakfast as the most important meal of the day, I wanted to be precocious and felt I need more…
So I took
The almond milk is to be taken whenever you want throughout the whole day. I drank the whole white black dotted liquid in the morning; to get me fully satisfied and filled with beautiful proteins out of almonds, dates, raw vanilla and himalaya salt.
I was ready for the day to start, heading to a yoga meeting and by the end of that I felt my empty stomach quite a bit….My lunch yoga class was starting in half an hour and I usually do not eat too much before I practice but I felt I need to take my lunch portion before I start my teaching.
HAPPY I GOT THE HEYLIFE COOLING BAG SO I HAD MY TWO CUTE LUNCH PORTIONS READY AND FRESHLY COOLED WITH ME.
4. Züribreeze and Chlorophyl Shock Shot
Cucumber, ginger, green apple, lemon and moringa got my hydration stilled and my empty stomach calmed..feeling greener and greener
By the time I arrived back home and started to do some reading and writing I was happy the time came for the 2nd portion of the digestion enhancer 5.Green Elixir.
I hardly dare to say it but the time arrived where I wished I would not have drunken all the almond milk at once in the morning but rather have saved some for a moment like NOW…
The now where I felt:
I AM HUNGRY AND MY BODY NEEDS WHITE, ORANGE, PINK, OR ANY OTHER COLOR JUST NOT GREEN…..
Happy as the universe flows I got to chill with a pastel orange coloured water drink on the couch with my cat and the hardly appreciated:
YES!!Delicious and a real Kick towards the end of the day, just simply containing water, agave, cayenne and lemon.
My second yoga class to give in the evening was ahead of me….feeling more chill I had my mind set for a soft class…more was not to give anyways.
I had one last drink to fill up my almost green blood:
7. On Kale
Yes OnKale I was running and OnKale I was sipping….
Red apple, cucumber, kale, ginger and lemon as my last green mix of the day.
My immunsystem was loaded with good greens, my hydration was watered down with good greens, my digestion was moving into the right green way and my energy ….oh well my energy …green for sure but yes where was my energy?!
My energy was sleeping at the end of the day, but that is absolutely normal. Juicing on a basis how I did it is a time to stay calm, you give your digestive system basically a break..a day on holiday for our intestine and stomach since they do not need to work on big pieces, the juice already refined it for them.
Best is to take it easy on a day like this….I was so happy to just relax with my cat who suddenly felt to have much greener eyes then usually…. and finally go to bed very early to end this green day with a happy good sleep.
My stomach was growling when I went to bed and I dreamt secretly about my breakfast I would have the next morning…BUT THEN: Surprisingly I woke up and felt SOOOO ENERGISED. SOOO HAPPY, SOOOOO FRESH, SOOO NEW, SOOOO SATISFIED AND NOT HUNGRY FOR ANY BIG THINGS AT ALL.
I FELT TOTALLY:
LET’S START THIS!!!
I knew my body needed some time to adjust and like many of those juice days or water fast I have already done: It feels exciting in the beginning, challenging after the first hours and then you can go on and come to the source of your being.
It makes you stop, and realise again that every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body.An important choice you make.
Let’s make it a HEYLIFE experience and treat our body like the precious tool it is and like the only place we ever have to live in!!
THANK YOU HEYLIFE FOR THIS GREEN BREAK AND RESTART INTO MY LIFE AGAIN.
I WILL PRESS THE GREEN BUTTON FOR SURE AGAIN….
