The Benefits of Whole Foods
Although many of us have become accustomed to thinking of fruit as healthy, it does tend to be high in sugar. Whole foods certainly have a place in a healthy Paleo lifestyle, but when we reduce those whole foods to juice, we’re left with mostly sugar, a few vitamins, and none of the fiber that helps feed our gut bacteria and slow the digestion of all that sugar. The result is a sugar high that is sure to lead to a crash, leaving you feeling tired, cranky, and craving more sugar.
