The Whole30 diet is designed to reset your body’s ability to digest and metabolize the nutrients in the food you eat. This diet eliminates most sugars, natural and processed as well as most carbohydrates and isn’t for the faint of heart. We have compiled a list of do’s and don’ts along with some of our favorite Whole30 recipes.
Smoothies offer the perfect solution for weight loss and healthy eating, since they can be prepared within minutes and you can choose which ingredients to include. Unless you have the right vacuum sealed container, however, those lovely fresh fruits and veggies will oxidize and lose their nutritional value, flavor and color within minutes.
Here’s are 5 reasons why you should use the SANS smoothie bottle to hold your favorite drink:
1. It Slows Oxidization –
Raw ingredients start oxidizing upon contact with air. SANS bottle features an innovative pump preserver lid that removes extra air and creates a vacuum seal to keep juice and smoothie contents fresh. You’re no longer in a race against time to gulp down a fresh batch of smoothies or juices before the color and flavor change.
2. It’s Lightweight & Portable –
If you like to carry a healthy smoothie when you’re heading to gym, yoga class, school or work, SANS bottle is ideal. Not only is it made with lightweight but sturdy materials, the smoothie bottle is designed to fit into a standard cup holder. You can place it in your car, bicycle, gym bag, hiking backpack, wherever!
3. It’s Hot/Cold Friendly –
SANS bottle is made with borosilicate glass that can safely hold both hot and cold liquids. It also has a silicon sleeve and lid, which helps provide some insulation to the contents. The vacuum sealed container keeps contents fresh for longer, and you can store it in a refrigerator if you want your smoothie extra cold.
3. It’s 100% Leak-Proof –
When you’re carrying a juice or smoothie in your bag, car or backpack, you need a container that seals up tight. SANS bottle provides a completely leak-proof vacuum seal, so you don’t need to worry about spills or leaks. Just pour your favorite drink into the container, pump out the air, and you’re good to go!
4. It’s Extremely Versatile –
Not only is SANS bottle ideal for preserving smoothies, it can also be used for various other liquids. Keep shakes, juices, tea, coffee, wine, soups and water fresh when you’re heading outdoors, or carry chopped fruits and salads to class or work. You can even store sauces, dips and salsas when you make them ahead of time.

Fruits are great for us for so many reasons….
Fruit juices that are fresh with no additives are a great way to get these fruits into our daily diets. But, did you know that along with consuming these fruits as juices, you also have to be careful about how and when to consume them?
Juices are best consumed immediately after making. But, with our lives becoming more hectic with each passing day, consuming them fresh is often a hard-to-achieve task. Also, there are so many questions when it comes to the different aspects of juicing – like the process, storage, etc.
If healthy living is your mantra, then juices and smoothies are definitely your elixirs of life. They pack a nutritious punch and are deliciously irresistible. But, store bought juices or smoothies don’t count because they are generally loaded with artificial preservatives. And the only down side of home-made fresh juices or smoothies is that they don’t stay fresh for long and require immediate consumption.
So what do you do? Well, here are some zero-preservative ways to keep the freshness of your juices and smoothies intact for longer:
Does your diet support your CrossFit workout? When you are not eating right, even a high-intensity, heart-pumping workout will not improve your fitness prowess. If you are not making the most of your daily diet, it simply won’t get you those perfectly chiseled abs or toned body no matter how you are programming your WOD or how much you’re sweating at the gym.
Summer 2017 is just around the corner and as you plan your trips to the beach, make sure you plan on staying hydrated and don’t forget to replenish your body. As the temperatures ruse, the high often drains you of energy. But, the bright sunny days bring us a lot of colorful, juicy and delicious fruits that will not only keep you hydrated but also give you that extra kick of energy to keep you going with the extra hours of daylight! The choices of summer fruits are endless - watermelons, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, mangoes, cucumbers, lemon, tomatoes, oranges, papayas, cantaloupes… the list is endless!
The whole point of juicing is to reap the benefits that come with the freshness and goodness of the luscious fruits and veggies that are simply the best for our mind, body, and soul. But what’s the point of juicing, if the glorious liquids don’t maintain their freshness and keep their nutritional value intact. You absolutely must make sure your juices stay optimal in their nutritional value while keeping their taste at their yummiest levels. Want to know how?
