Let's be real: we are inching closer and closer to swimsuit season and some of us may have fallen off the wagon with our new year's resolutions. But there's still time to turn things around with healthy meals and beverages, and there's no better way to do it than with at-home juices.
Juicing isn't for everyone, but juicing and cleanses can be a safe way to detox as well as kick-start weight loss. Of course, there are plenty of juice cleanses on the market — Blueprint, Cooler Cleanse, and more — to choose from, but why spend the money on bottles of juice when you could be spending it on fruits and vegetables? There's more than enough fruit and vegetable combinations to keep you happy: green leafy vegetables, wheatgrass, berries, and even some quirky additions like garlic, parsnips, chile peppers, and sweet potatoes. And nowadays, juice bars are adding even more out-there ingredients with some surprising health benefits, like spirulina and maca root.
We're teaming up with KRUPS to giveaway one Krups ZY501D50 Juice Extractor, complete with a powerful 900-watt motor, pre-programmed speed settings, and a stainless steel blade to extract the most juice possible from your fruits and veggies. Enter to win, and you'll be on your way to a spring-break worthy bod in no time. And if you don't win, no worries — there are still plenty of juice bars in your area to hit up.
