If you haven't had the chance to begin your new year resolutions—we don't blame you—but it's never too late to start! Consider signing up for a holiday fun run, taking time for daily self care (a yoga session, maybe?), vowing to turn in early enough to get your eight hours of zzzzs, and—easiest and tastiest of all—introducing more fruits and vegetables into your diet by adding wholesome delicious juices.
Here are five delicious juices that'll have you charging into the new year bright eyed and bushy tailed.
1. Green machines
Get a dose of leafy greens in liquid form with a green juice like the Health Insurance from Terri in New York City. This blend contains super-duper-food kale, along with spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, green apple, and celery, and is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, including A, C, K, and folate.
2. Purple powerhouses
Power through your day with a purple or red juice containing beets, which some studies suggest may help boost athletic performance and endurance. Try the aptly named Recharge from California's Project Juice, which has beet juice and orange, strawberry, grapefruit, ginger, lemon, and potassium-rich coconut water—a popular natural alternative to sugary sports drinks.
3. Detox remedies
If you're feeling like you've already overindulged a bit too much this holiday season, try a juice with ingredients like lemon juice, cayenne, and activated charcoal that are purported to have detoxifying powers. You can get all of the hot detoxifiers in the Black Magic from Project Juice, which contains activated coconut charcoal, lemon juice, and cayenne, plus raw agave and purified water.
4. Celery cures
Drinking straight celery juice is all the rage these days and believers say the juice can help with digestive problems, skin issues, and a host of other health woes. While hardcore celery juicers prefer to drink it straight, a celery juice-based blend is a great way to dip your toes into those healing celery juice waters. Try the No. 1 Green Juice or the No. 2 Red Juice from Buda Juice in Dallas and Houston; they both contain celery along with tons of other good-for-you ingredients, such as spinach, parsley, apple, beets, and ginger.
5. Turmeric tonics and ginger shots
Turmeric and ginger are the it ingredients when it comes to fighting inflammation, but anyone who's tried to juice these roots at home knows it can be kind of a hassle (they're hard to peel and require a high-powered juicer to process, and turmeric stains like crazy). Let a juice bar do the work for you by ordering up a ginger and turmeric tonic, such as the Tantra from Portland Juice Co., which contains ginger and turmeric, along with lemon juice, cayenne, raw honey, black pepper, and alkaline water. Or go for a straight shot of ginger or turmeric from Movita Juice Bar in the Los Angeles area. Movita also does a trio of two-ounce elixirs—one ginger, one turmeric, and one wheat grass—if you really want to get crazy with the shots.
Here's to a happy, healthy, and juicy 2019—cheers from Uber Eats!
