Do you engage a rich culinary lifestyle like so many New Yorkers (myself included)? Think about a juice cleanse. Now, before you deduce that I’m full of health-freak, tofu bologna, listen to this: you have to give your body a break from processed foods, pub dinners, sugary sodas, and copious amounts of alcohol. These types of foods and drinks leave behind harmful toxins that build up in your gastrointestinal system, causing you to feel lethargic from all the gunk. Juices benefit you by giving you necessary nutrients to function with high energy, but without the “food coma.” This is just science, folks. So whether you want to skip one meal to decrease the bloat or dive into a multi-day cleanse, these juice bars have some of the healthiest, all-natural satiating drinks around.
