Ok, before I talk about juice, can we talk a little bit about how FUN that photo above is? All those fruits and veggies! Just for this photo, I schlepped my way over to whole foods to buy some fresh, bright produce for these photos. This was my FIRST TIME EVER buying a pineapple. I’ve always been scared of them because:
- They have pokey leaves that scare me
- How in the heck do you cut it??
So anyway, I’m pretty sure that the checker must have thought I was going home to juice the giant bag of produce I got. I mean, that’s what I would have assumed if someone came to the counter with a huge bag of produce and no other ingredients whatsoever. But no, Mr. Checker was wrong.
Problem #1 with juicing: I don’t have a juicer.
Problem #2 with juicing: You have to have a juicer.
I’ve honestly always wanted to start juicing, but I really, really don’t want to add another appliance to my kitchen. And then there’s all the produce you have to buy (our veggie drawer is stuffed to the brim as it is) and all the waste you have to deal with. So I never really got into it, even though I know how good it is for me.
That’s why I was so excited to be invited to try out the brand new Naked Cold Pressed line of juices! These juices –> solve all my problems.
The new Naked Cold Pressed Juices come in some awesome flavors: Bright Greens, Hearty Greens, Bold Beet, Lively Carrot, and Cool Pineapple. They’re all stuffed with all sorts of good-for-you ingredients that are blended together to make something really tasty (c’mon – how many of you have tried a juice/veggie smoothie that just tasted blegh? I know I have). When I was looking at the bottles I tried to guess which one I would like best. Because I like purple (unless it’s on my bedroom walls) and I really like beets, I pinned Bold Beet to be my favorite.
While Bold Beet is super delicious, I was totally surprised by the one I liked best! Can you guess??…..
It was Cool Pineapple! Totally surprising because I haven’t traditionally been a pineapple lover. I mean, I’ll eat it and it’s alright, but I never really search it out at the supermarket.
Until this juice. And surprisingly, until I bought my first pineapple and cut it up and ate half the thing in one sitting. Yeah. I think I now fall into the “pineapple lovers” category.
I’m so excited about these juices because it’s the perfect way for me to start drinking fruit & veggie juices without having to actually do the juicing. That means I can have my healthy juice with no extra appliance, no extra veggies to keep fresh, and no cleanup! Woooooot!
These juices are currently only available on the west coast (but they’ll be available nationally very soon!!), so if you’re somewhere in the area then go searching for them at your local grocery store. I found mine at the local Vons!
If you’ve never tried a fruit&veggie juice before, this is the perfect way to get into it. Grab a flavor (or five – they’re all good!) and give a it shot. It’s a little different at first, but by the time you’re halfway through the bottle you’ll be loving every sip. If you’re a hard-core juicer, give these guys a try when you don’t feel like cleaning out your juicer, or when you don’t want to skip your healthy habit when you’re out of the house.
The Naked Cold Pressed Juices are definitely something I’ll be keeping in my fridge from now on – especially my favorite, Cool Pineapple!
