The Suja Juice Solution is a Proven Winner

The Suja Juice Solution is a Proven Winner

Before she became the one of the country’s most successful juice entrepreneurs, Annie Lawless, co-founder of Suja Juice, suffered from awful eczema, allergies, chronic ear infections, asthma and Celiac disease during her teenage years. Not surprisingly, all of the steroid creams, inhalers, and antihistamines that doctors gave her never provided much help. So, Annie decided to […]

annie-lawless-the-suja-juice-solutionBefore she became the one of the country’s most successful juice entrepreneurs, Annie Lawless, co-founder of Suja Juice, suffered from awful eczema, allergies, chronic ear infections, asthma and Celiac disease during her teenage years.

Not surprisingly, all of the steroid creams, inhalers, and antihistamines that doctors gave her never provided much help.

So, Annie decided to take matters into her own hands and set out to completely revamp her entire lifestyle. Along with eliminating gluten and dairy from her diet, she became very serious about juicing, which provided her the nutrition that she was severely lacking.

This new approach to food resulted in clear skin, an improved mood, and more energy than she ever had before. And most importantly, all of her health problems disappeared.

The basis of Annie’s turnaround serves as the foundation for her fantastic new book The Suja Juice Solution: 7 Days to Lose Fat, Beat Cravings, and Boost Your Energy. It is incredibly approachable, has a ton of great recipes and beautiful photography, and provides an easy-to-use framework for anyone to dramatically improve their physical and emotional well-being.  Read more »

Zana Juices - The Most Impressive Drink I've Ever Seen

While shopping at my local organic market in New York City the other day, I spotted a drink that I had never seen before called Zana Juices. What immediately drew my attention wasn’t the large bottle size but rather its eye-popping price tag of $55 for 32 ounces. “$55 for what?” I asked myself.

Today is a monumental day in the world of food activism and healthy food. Why?

Because it is the release of The Food Babe Way by Vani Hari.

In just a few years, Vani Hari, also known as The Food Babe, has enacted more positive change in the food industry than anyone else in our country today. She has forced many of the biggest conventional food brands – such as Kraft, Subway, Chick-Fil-A, and Anheuser-Busch – to alter the way they do business, all to the benefit of the individual consumer.

There are certain products that I when I see in the market, I pull them off the shelf and put them into my basket without giving it a second thought. It is automatic.

That is exactly what happens when I come across a bag of Curt’s Classic Snack Mix by Raw Food Central.

I almost named Curt’s Classic Snack Mix as one of my Top 5 Organic Products from this year’s Natural Products Expo East several months ago but for some reason resisted. Quite possibly, it was because I wanted to dedicate an entire post to the product. Read more »

One misconception that the food industry would like us to believe is that ALL yogurt is healthy because of the beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that the product contains.

However, many of the largest food corporations have turned yogurt into quasi-junk food by adding ingredients such as artificial colors, chemical defoamers, milk from cows who have been raised on genetically-engineered feed, synthetic preservatives, carrageenan, high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, and excessive levels of sugar.

Some “fruit yogurts” don’t even contain fruit!

Other yogurts may be afoul of the FDA’s official definition of yogurt and may not even be legally qualified to market themselves as “yogurt”.

All of this is detailed in The Cornucopia Institute’s groundbreaking report on yogurt called Culture Wars: How the Food Giants Turned Yogurt, a Health Food, into Junk Food.

In its exhaustive research piece, Cornucopia breaks the report down into five main sections: Read more »
