Here are two places to start.
1. Drink filtered water.
2. Focus on a plant-based diet.
3. Get your sleep.
4. Move daily.
If you are unsure how to do it, check out our resources page and view a couple of the recommended films, starting with the “Forks Over Knives” and What the Health” Documentaries.
You will be pleasantly surprised at the variety and incredible flavors available in the plant world. In Judy’s 8-week faith-based study called Devoted Bodies, there are shopping lists, meal plans and dozens of recipes. ForksOverKnives.com is another terrific resource for recipes and motivation. Judy also recommends checking out Youtube videos from Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Joel Furhman, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
5. Set yourself up for success.
In 1997, Judy partnered with the Juice Plus+® Company for one simple reason. The company offered affordable and effective tools to help people get more fruits, vegetables and other plant foods into their diet. If we’re honest, most of us could use a little help!
The first tool is a compact aeroponic growing system called the Tower Garden®. It allows you to grow your own clean fruits and vegetables —inside or out— in a very small space, with just water, no dirt. Judy and her husband have 5 Tower Gardens and grow their greens year round.
If you’re not ready for farming or to add anything else to your plate, no worries! The Company also offers fruit and vegetable products where they oversee the growing process without using any pesticides, harvest the produce at the peak of ripeness (and nutrient density), crush the fruits and vegetables, remove the water and then deliver concentrated juice powders into capsules for adults, and chewables for children. There are three blends of Juice Plus+®: fruit, vegetable and berry/grape providing nutrition from 30 of the most nutrient-dense plant foods on the planet. We also have a powerful vegan Omega Capsule!
Whether you just need a little support or are looking for a nutrition overhaul, Juice Plus+® offers a wide range of programs—from making one simple change at a time, to a 10-day kick-start program called Shred10 that focuses on detox rather than dieting. This program adds in a delicious plant-based smoothie that includes another 15 plant foods. Most people do this program monthly for 10 days followed by 20 day less restrictive It is a journey!!!
