Kris Carr is one of my health heroes. She has an amazing story. She was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer when she was only 31 years old. She decided to take control of her health through less conventional methods and changed to a plant-based diet. She used juicing, whole foods, herbs, vitamins, yoga and meditation to help her through her situation. 12 years later, she is peacefully living with her cancer and it has stopped growing.
Kris Carr is also an infectious ball of positive energy. She has written books with tips for those recently diagnosed with cancer and released a documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer about her journey. Her book Crazy Sexy Diet re-ignited my commitment to my health and helped me ditch dairy, going completely vegan back in 2012. I own all her books and documentary and am pushing them on people constantly. Just kidding, (sort of). I currently have two of her books on loan to a co-worker and her documentary out to a family member. I passionately believe in the health benefits of plant-based living and preventative medicine and she explains it all in an accessible and fun manner.
Kris Carr also turned me on to the benefits of juicing and juice cleansing. I have seen so many improvements in my physical body and clarity in mind, peace in heart and alignment in soul since going completely vegan and incorporating juice cleansing.
I anxiously awaited the release of her newest book Crazy Sexy Juice. The book is beautifully packed with juice, smoothie and nut milk recipes.
It also contains an accessible 3 Day Juice Cleanse to either kick start a healthy diet or do some much needed maintenance to detoxify and reset the body.
I completed this cleanse a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. It was not nearly as intense as some other cleanses I have done and best of all, light snacking is incorporated, when needed. The snacking made a huge difference mentally, which I find is often the hardest part of juice cleansing.
In my next post, I will re-cap the 3 day cleanse. In the meantime, I am SUPER excited to announce my first ever giveaway!
