I distinctly remember the sense of awe I experienced the first time I watched a carrot being fed through a centrifuge juicer, instantaneously yielding brilliant orange liquid from the other end... I remember the aromatic pleasure as ginger and apple quickly followed the fate of that carrot.
I often witness the same awe in the eyes of children who accompany their parents to the Juice Company and watch as a handful of wheatgrass is transformed into beautiful emerald liquid before their eyes.
Once you get past the seeming magic of solid being transformed into liquid state, it's easy to appreciate the simplicity behind Fresh Juice: to literally drink in the vitamins, nutrients and enzymes of organic fruits and vegetables grown in the warmth of the sun.... no nonsense added and no goodness removed. This "it is what it is" concept is a rare commodity in our over-processed, over-synthesized and over-sweetened food culture.
This is a lifestyle blog. It's about Green Juice and Yoga. It's about flooding your body with good things then breathing, sweating and squeezing all the bad things out. It's about feeling good by getting back to the basics. Green Juice and Yoga are two of the most basic things on earth.
I already told you about the first time I saw a carrot being juiced, but I can't tell you about the first time I did a yoga posture... because I was a baby and I don't remember. Babies and small children do yoga postures all the time without even knowing it. That's because it's natural for humans to utilize our bodies to the fullest potential, something we don't typically accomplish at our 8am-6pm desk jobs.
The benefits of Green Juice and Yoga on the human body make me think of The Theory of Relativity. Hear me out. Gravity is so basic a concept that you always knew objects would fall to the ground if you dropped them, but you had to take a physics class before you fully understood why.
It's been about two years since I opened The Pittsburgh Juice Company and more than three years since I decided to make drinking Fresh Juice and practicing Yoga cornerstones in my life. I'm passionate about what I do, I believe in this lifestyle and I love to share my experience with people who are interested.
So welcome to my blog. I look forward to gradually documenting the plethora of information I've acquired through living a Green Juice and Yoga lifestyle.
Until next time.
