Ok maybe I’m going a step too far but hear me out:
We want to make optimum nutrition a realistic option for everyone, mums and dads, boys and girls, nanas and grandads, if you are vegan, dairy free, gluten free, tall, short or even all of the above!. We believe it is never too late to start a journey towards a healthier lifestyle. The goal? Simple: we aim to create delicious juices that both you and your body will love!
I’m Laura and I’m passionate about all things health, nutrition and fitness. Like many of you, since becoming a mum, I took my nutritional interest to a new level, looking for sneaky ways to get my 2 little rascals to eat plenty of vegetables. Let’s be honest, I’ve never come across a 4 year old in love with broccoli!!
However my juicing journey took a big jump 7 years ago when my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I’m lucky to come from a very health orientated family and from a very young age, fresh food cooked from scratch was a staple at home. That along with plenty of sports and outdoor activity.
My dad is literally invincible, he reckons he will live to be 150 and he probably will as my grandad lived to be 102!. Genetically strong, he has never even had a cold.
On the other hand my mum, who I would consider to be even healthier than my dad, is the complete opposite. For no apparent reason she developed lung fibrosis, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, breast cancer…and the list goes on!
My mum’s tumour was successfully removed 10 years ago, however the treatment was so intense that at one stage we thought she might not make it. Her weight plummeted and she was hit by depression.
At this point I made the decision to step in and bought her a good masticating juicer. I made her vegetable juices (she’s type 1 diabetic, therefore fruit is out) twice every day. Six months down the line and she was a different person!
I’m in no way claiming that juicing cured her, however by giving her body that high concentration of unprocessed minerals, vitamins and enzymes I have no doubt at all that this helped her speed her recovery.
After witnessing first hand how juicing can impact somebody’s health in a positive way, I decided to take my juicing passion further and train as a JUICING THERAPIST (yes, there is such a thing!). After many months of late nights studying biology, anatomy, physiology, nutrition and juicing I can happily say I’m now one of only a handful of fully QUALIFIED INDEPENDENT JUICING THERAPIST in Ireland.
I believe that wholesome food has the power to transform your life and I want everyone to experience it because a healthy lifestyle isn’t an exclusive club. It’s for everyone.
