I love drinking fresh juice; it gives you a vitamin shot and energy boost which I find even bulletproof coffee can’t rival!

You have to be quite careful that you juice the correct things, (i.e. more veg than fruit) or you are setting yourself up for a massive sugar hit and then crash. I like to juice in a morning, to compliment my breakfast; and I am especially partial to juices when i’m feeling under the weather.

You can juice pretty much anything, and it is great to get all those nutrients in, in one shot. Remember though folks- You should never juice as a substitute to eating real food!

Juicing Tips

If you haven’t juiced before you can pick up a half decent juicer for around £60.00 from Argos/ other online stores. You can even get self-cleaning juicers if you’re happy to splash the cash. Top tip if you are on a budget- Make sure the juicer is easy to clean. If it takes over 5 minutes to clean, I  guarantee it will sit in your cupboard gathering dust! :-)

Great tasting food has always been my passion. Obsessed with cookbooks from a young ages I have enjoyed exploring the world of food, recipe by recipe. 2004, aged 20, I was reading Law at University; money was tight, and meals were often made up of vegetables and starchy carbohydrates, washed down with ample alcoholic beverages of choice. Always made from scratch, taste championed calorie content; many delicious creamy pastas and carb-loaded rice and pitta dishes were consumed.Being in my early twenties, I was quite capable of getting away with my not exactly nutritious diet, however following Law School I noticed that I’d put on a few pounds. Being a food lover, I became extremely interested in the power of food; its nutritional value, its healing, health benefits. I read pages and pages of nutritional information; I followed fitness blogs, and read health cookbooks. I then made the decision to turn paleo; I really tightened up my diet and saw amazing result. Most importantly however, eating the right food made me feel great. For the first time, I did not feel bloated, I felt energized, health issues cleared up. My skin was the best ever, I slept well at night. The Paleo Diet involves eating mainly vegetables and protein, with small amounts of fruit, nuts and seeds. Eating Paleo is in essence eating the foods your body was designed to eat. The Paleo Diet mimics the diet that our hunter-gather ancestors ate; pre-agricultural revolution. My love of paleo, has brought me to my new found hobby; CrossFit and a combination of exercise and diet are an unbeatable solution. Paleo Polly is a blog dedicated to my journey. Although I am not a qualified nutritionist, my personal journey has enabled me to make great changes to my life and to my well-being. I would like to share my journey, and my life experiences and guide and assist anyone wanting to make a positive change.
