Being a mom is both a thankless and rewarding, albeit a very busy task. Between soccer drop offs, sick days and nights up with a crying and colicky baby there are countless reasons why moms (all parents – really) have a hard time finding the energy to make it through the day. Many turn to caffeine, and we certainly aren’t dissing that option – we at Daily Mom are hardcore caffeine lovers! However, juicing is something you’ve certainly heard about, read about or tried at one time or another. Fresh juices are an amazing craze that will hopefully never go away. They come with a long list of benefits, but like anything else health or nutrition related, it will serve you best to be informed. Today we are prepared to bring you a little bit more information on juicing, how to use it to up those ever dropping energy levels, and talk about what all the hype really is about. New moms, take note! We will be touching on the safety of juicing while breastfeeding as well!
