DIGESTING THE PRESENT MOMENT

Christine Valdez

Juice is a wonderful, healing thing. It cleanses and it purifies your body, but trust us when we tell you - green juice alone won’t transform your life into magic.

The fact is that food is an extension of your inner voice. It’s not defined by calories or properties or fat content. Even if you’ve got all the information and you’re doing all the “right” things, you may be missing the most important piece of body wisdom - that balance holds the key to creating harmony and well-being. Your body needs to be nourished and nurtured as much as it needs to cleanse and purify.

You can’t cleanse all the time. You have to find the balance between purification and nourishment in order to create lasting harmony in your body.

A rigid, dogmatic approach to the foods you eat just won’t match the natural rhythm of real life. Your cells are in a dynamic process of shifting, every hour, every minute. How you feel and what you need depends on hundreds of variables outside of your control. Can you really know what you want for dinner on Thursday? Can you actually map out a meal plan down to every ingredient and follow it without fail for weeks on end? We all know we can’t, even though we try again and again.

What if you could dive deeper into a dialogue with yourself to begin to understand how your body digests and metabolizes the present moment? And then respond to what it tells you? We’ve been practicing this conversation for 20 years, and we want you to know that it’s possible to have a symbiotic relationship with your food that doesn’t leave you craving something more.

What is your body telling you to eat right now? Are you listening?

Maybe you’re craving sugar or a glass of wine at the end of your day. Instead of denying that feeling, ask yourself WHY? Do you need some sweetness in your life? Are you stressed and needing reassurance everything is going to be okay? What if you listened and made a healthy sweet snack that answered that craving with compassion? When we constantly deny our cravings, they just get louder. In the end, ignoring them lands us exactly where we didn’t want to be in the first place - totally overindulging and feeling terrible afterwards.

Food is not inherently “good” or “bad.” We’ve learned to label, judge, control, and categorize it until eating has become a daily battle. Make a choice to pause one moment at a time. Clear away the noise to listen, respond, and rediscover how healing and beautiful it can be.

How will you nourish yourself today?
