Our New Years Resolutions for 2013

by Neka on January 21, 2013, no comments

New Years Resolution #1: I will take better care of my skin

Juice cleanses can optimize skin health. The top four juices for healthy skin are carrot, blueberry, kale and lemon juice, all of which are featured in the Signature Cleanse. Other great ways to promote skin health are protection from the sun, Vitamin A intake and staying hydrated!

New Years Resolution #2: I will not poison myself

Pesticides, antibiotics and hormones are not a part of a well-balanced meal. Do 2013 right and go organic! Urban Remedy products are 100% organic and 100% poison-free. All of the ingredients we use are grown without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetic modification or ionizing radiation. If you don’t have access to organic food where you live, you can order our juices, snacks and smoothies online.

New Years Resolution #3: I will heal my heart

Your heart craves foods that are low in saturated fats and cholesterol but high in antioxidants and dietary fiber. For a heart cleanse, try the Signature Cleanse, featuring your heart’s favorite foods: raspberries, blueberries, acai, apple, almonds, cashews. Other things hearts love: long walks, sunshine, fresh vegetables, acts of kindness

New Years Resolution #4: I will follow through on my commitments

When you do your juice cleanse, create the full commitment to ensure the cleanse work best for your heart, mind and body. We suggest a 100% juice cleanse because eating slows down the cleansing process, but if you do choose to eat, only eat organic fruits, vegetables or soaked nuts/seeds. Set yourself up for success: ask your friends and family to support you, cut out time for reflection and relaxation. We believe in you!

New Years Resolution #5: I will manage my sweet tooth

Not all sugars are created equal. Our low-glycemic sweet treats only use all raw, natural and healthy ingredients. Urban Remedy-approved sweet fixings: coconut sugar, apple, date, banana, honey

 New Years Resolution #6: I will love my body better

“Love” is more than a feeling or a concept: it’s an action. To love your body means eating lots of greens, fruits and superfoods. It means eating organic foods that are free of pesticides and hormones. It means avoiding processed foods and sugars. It means breaking old habits that no longer serve you. What will you do this year to love your body better?

New Years Resolution #7: I will be a leader in my community

The more you educate yourself about health, the greater a community asset you become. Educate your community about diet, nutrition and lifestyle habits that promote health. One great way to do this is to keep up with our blog, which is filled with informative posts about improving health. Spread the word about Urban Remedy! We want our products to reach everyone in need of healing.

New Years Resolution #8: I will eat the rainbow

Nature offers a full spread of colored foods for good reason. Each group of fruits or vegetables of one color offers different nutritional values. Here’s the shorthand list:

The Reds: Polyphenol neutralizes free radicals and inhibits inflammation; powerful antioxidants,
The Oranges: Beta-Cryptoxanthin supports eye, bone and cell growth; Alpha-Carotene supports the immune system; Vitamin C supports the immune system
The Yellows: Limonoids might lower cholesterol and help fight cancer; Lutein and Zeaxanthin support eye health; Vitamin C
The Greens: Chlorophyll rebuilds and replenishes our red blood cells, boosting our energy and increasing our well-being; Vitamin K supports bone and blood health
The Purples: Indoles may fight against cancerous cells; Anthocyanis are antioxidants that support brain functioning and may reduce the risk of heart disease

New Years Resolution #9: I will make time for the things I love

Urban Remedy Meals are a great way to eat on-the-go without sacrificing your health. You can get filled up without having to drive anywhere, wait in line, or go shopping. These meal replacement smoothies are rich with vitamins, nutrients and energizing ingredients. What do you want to make time for this year?

New Years Resolution #10: I will embody my beliefs

Be transparent about what you believe in and share it with others. If you care about your body, love eating well, and don’t eat junk food, let others know! If you believe in juicing and going gluten-free, spread the word. You make a difference!
