Juice Cleansing in Fall

For me the turning of the seasons is always a time to both celebrate and reflect. I recently found myself pondering my favorite memories and moments of the summer and then looking forward to what the coming months will bring. I like to ask myself about my intentions for the coming months and use the solstice and equinox dates like some may use New Year’s; as a distinct marker of the constant movement of time and as a point to make adjustments to my diet and lifestyle.

Fall in particular is a great time for a cleanse. As the weather transitions from the light and warm days of summer to the cool crisp days of Fall we begin to gravitate towards warmer more comforting foods. As this natural tendency occurs I invite you to take a minute to think about your diet over the past few months. How do you feel? What would you like to get rid of? What should you eat more of? It is a constant practice to be healthy, mindful and balanced. Doing a cleanse can sometimes provide that distinct point to which you can invite change. It allows you to get out of your habits and do something different and thus move forward in a new healthier way.

Check out the Pure Simple Juice web site for more details on our Fall Juice Cleanse.

Do you have a group of friends, coworkers, exercise partners or a yoga/wellness studio that would like to do a group cleanse? We offer group cleanse discounts of $25/off each cleanse for groups of (4) or more people. Also for larger groups of (10) plus participants we will provide a complimentary nutrition and intro to a cleanse class taught by myself, a registered dietitian and diabetes educator. Please email us for more details:

Happy Fall! Dulcinea, RD, LD, CDE

Gut Killers Part III

Gut Killer #3 Stress

 The gut and the brain hold a powerful connection, In fact, the gut is often referred to as the body’s second brain or belly brain. Your gut has even more neurons than your brain. That being said it makes sense that in order to have healthy digestion you must avoid unnecessary stressors and find ways to deal with the inevitable stresses of life.

One way to cope with stress is through mood-boosting foods. Your brain is constantly making neurotransmitters and neuropeptides from nutrients. Food is the structural beginning of brain chemicals, such as serotonin. Serotonin=calm, positive, feelings. Additionally, your feelings can be instantly changed by what you eat.  So next time you are feeling over busy, stressed, tired, try this shake brake for an immediate serotonin boost and mood changer:

1 small banana

1 cup of pineapple or orange juice

½ cup strawberries or papaya

1 to 3 tsp flax oil (as tolerated)

Try and avoid caffeine 2 hours before/after the shake as caffeine can inhibit the positive benefit of serotonin.  Serotonin containing foods include: banana, papaya, passionfruit, pineapple, dates, figs, kiwi, plums, avocado, tomato
