THIS IS NO ORDINARY JUICE
As a nutritionist with 22 years of experience behind me, I have seen the gamut of nutritional fads come and go. I am often asked to comment on them for media publications and so my opinions are well-documented. I have been asked countless times by clients in my private practice as well as editors for articles about my thoughts on juices. I have repeatedly said, “I don’t care for them since they offer limited, if any, nutritional benefit to the person who is consuming them.” That is, until now. I have finally found the juice that delivers both taste and nutrition to the consumer and is organic, non-GMO and comes from local produce. I am blown away!
These juices are from a company called Crush’d Garage and once you try them, you’ll never go back to any other juice. The first thing I noticed on the Nutrition Facts label is the short list of organic fruits and vegetables. That’s right, they don’t put stabilizers, preservatives or even juices into their juice. Believe it or not, some companies actually add those to their products and also add fruit juice to their own juice. It never made sense to me. Crush’d Garage uses only the actual fruits and vegetables so you truly are reaping the nutritional benefit.
What was even more impressive to me was that they have fiber in their juices. I have never seen that before, and it has been one of my biggest criticisms of the juice industry. Other companies get rid of the skin or peel of the fruit or vegetable and only use what’s on the inside. The problem is that by getting rid of the outside, you are throwing away important nutrients and a whole lot of fiber. Crush’d garage leaves the outside on during the juicing process. It’s brilliant! Now you really can drink your fruits and veggies!
The other really amazing aspect of these juices is that they contain protein, some of them as high as 8 grams a bottle. Considering that 2 or 3 grams per bottle is the norm for other juice companies, I was beyond thrilled to see a combination of fiber and protein all in one nutrient- packed bottle.
I am completely hooked! These juices are delicious, with something for everyone’s palate. They truly are all of nature’s goodness in a bottle. So, drink up and be healthy!
