When I was in college, I went through a serious juicing phase. Nashville has some killer juice bars (I'm looking at you, Urban Juicer and The Juice Bar), and I enjoyed learning the benefits of the millions of ingredients that can end up in juices and smoothies. However, I gradually grew out of my juicing habit because I learned that juice can often spike your blood sugar when consumed by itself, and it's difficult to find a low-sugar juice, unless it is straight greens. The amount of natural sugar and loss of fiber in juice can make it a tricky health-food to work into your diet effectively if you don't know what to look for, which is why I'm recommending a great juice option today.
Recently, I was sent a package from the company Salad Power, and woah am I impressed with the ingredients in their drinks! It's their mission to be low calorie, low sugar, and 100% pure! Every juice has 7 vegetables and over 40 necessary vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and cell cleansers. If you look at the graphic below, you can see that they prioritize their nutrients more than any other juice company on the market.
Additionally, my favorite part about this company is the bottles - they don't allow any light or oxygen inside, so the juices can be shipped nationwide, and juices can be stored at room temperature! Definitely drink them cold because they taste way better that way, but the convenience of these drinkable salads is unmatched.
So far, I've consumed my juices by themselves and also used them as the base for protein-packed smoothies! Check out their website and try a few Salad Power drinks for yourself. Happy drinking!
