Organic Avenue is AHHHHMAZING! What a cool concept, and makes me feel right at home which I like. I LOVE that it is made right around the corner, and has a very short shelf life for a reason. Most of the juices you see on the shelves these days are filled with things your body just doesn’t need. I hear so many people talking about buying a juicer, but having Organic Avenue in your neighborhood is like having a juicer in your backyard.
About a year and a half ago, when I started writing the music for my EP and what will come later, the possible album, I began to become more serious about my body and its health. I was unhappy with the way I looked, I weighed much more than I would have liked to, and was eating unhealthy. I knew that changing the way I ate and exercising most days of the week would help me feel better, most importantly help my mental health and make me feel grounded. After all it is true, “you are what you eat.”
I began doing Yoga, Bikram about 4 times per day, was running a ton, removed dairy from my diet, and basically became vegan but cheated a bit because I would have my occasional piece of lean fish when I really wanted to. Recently, I was diagnosed with a serious stress fracture in my tibia and am on crutches for 6 weeks due to a lack of Vitamin D and Calcium in my bones. Right now is the most pivotal, crucial time for my bones and did not take the time to understand how to responsibly “feed” them. Sounds weird, but its true. But this is all OKAY, because I was following a pretty healthy diet before this but now I am even more aware of how important it is to properly nourish your body. You get can a ton of your essential vitamins from green juices, red juices and smoothies!
I am preparing for my big photo shoot on Monday for my upcoming EP, Dream Ticket, that I’ve been working on now for so long, and anxiously waiting to share with everyone. So I am doing the Organic Avenue Cleanse that I was able to customize myself thanks to the location and the real “Mom and Pop” shop feel where everyone is caring about your personal goal. Naturally it makes my fridge look nice too!
