Juicing Because of Joe ....and a GIVEAWAY!!!

***CLOSING THE GIVEAWAY THIS WEEK. Saturday July 6th 11:59 pm eastern. The contest will close and the winner will be drawn at random****

A few months back my husband watched a documentary. He loved it so much he could hardly wait to tell me about it and watch it with me. The documentary was called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. It featured  Joe Cross along his journey to a healthier way of life.

The documentary follows Joe on a road trip across the United States as he talks to people about food, lifestyle, exercise and juicing. During the film, Joe loses weight and gains better health. His transformation was nothing short of inspirational. He brought his juicing routine on the road, juicing on the road literally. Joe would stop on the side of the road sometimes, pull out the juicer from the truck and juice right there. He was able to show people during his journey about the benefits of juicing but he also showed people how easy juicing can be. I know we were inspired!

Just days after watching the documentary, my husband and I went out to buy a juicer. We also loaded up our fridge with fresh fruits and veggies, particularly green apples, limes, kale, cucumber, celery and carrots. We juiced that same day!I first wrote about my journey to kick the caffeine and embrace juicing back in January. It is hard but totally worth the effort to strive for better health. Our kids are also joining us. There are so many benefits to getting more fruits and veggies into our kids, no matter if they drink them or eat them!

Joe's incredible journey and documentary inspired him to create Reboot with Joe. The website offers visitors the tools, information and support to make a change in their own lives.  One the things I love the most about the site is all the recipes!

 This month Joe and his team celebrate the second anniversary of the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.  There is lots of great stuff happening at the site to mark the amazing anniversary check it out here , including some great contests!

What is even more exciting is that Joe is currently filming a new documentary! I can't wait to see this one.  You can follow Joe Cross on twitter @JoetheJuicer and read his full story.
