Jess:

Hey, y'all welcome back to naked talk with Jess podcast. I am so excited today for our guests, Jennifer Burton. She is the owner of Raw Creations right here in Montgomery with another location and Magnolia. Welcome the podcast, Jen.

Jennifer:

Thank I'm excited to be here.

Jess:

being here. So, okay. We are going to talk about juicing at raw creations. It's one of my favorite places by the way. And I'm so glad that there is that opportunity for those who yes, we might juice, you may have heard of it, but you know, let's be real, you know, we're so busy now more than ever. So it's great to have that option to have something from someone you trust with ingredients you talk lot on the podcast about reading food labels. That food matters, right? What's in our food matters. So welcome again, and share a little bit about you and how on earth did you get started with this?

Jennifer:

Yeah, that's question. So when I first started looking into health and realizing the effect of food on your body, I started doing a little bit of juicing. I had a stomach issues. I had some fertility issues, so I really started studying food. One day I was amazed how amazing I felt the next day so I kinda got into it little bit and every juice it truly was healing to my body. So then we went to California, my I went on a couple trips in juice bars there. They're incredible. Like, they're whole nother level. And then anything we have here in. So we kind of toyed around with the idea for a of years and finally said, Hey, do our at recreating what they have there. So that was kind of how we started.

Jess:

Yeah. And one thing I love is where we live. outside of Houston. So you're probably like me. Whenever travel, someone says, where you from? We say Houston, a outside of Houston. And I've noticed since my health journey a little bit over decade ago. In the urban areas or the city, you know, the metroplex, would find these they would kind of forget about out here, suburbs. So I love that you brought that to us. And gave us that opportunity and. how you're saying it. It really is healing, it amazes me, Jen, how little people still know that between food and their mood and their body and their gut health.

Jennifer:

Yeah.

Jess:

And it's almost like we're having unlearn what we've learned. media society these large corporations and get back to the basics of weight. We have a body requires nutrients. And so if we're not body the nutrients it needs, we're going to be at dis-ease and our immune system. Isn't going to be functioning the way it should. So. Well, you think of, Raw Creations? The love that name.

Jennifer:

Oh, we back and forth on names forever, but for us was not that it's a fully raw but we're taking raw ingredients and creating out And so it was important to me that juicing was a big deal, also wanted to have some food items. The people can enjoy, but we're healthy. That's another thing that, I know I brought up California earlier, but that was another thing. There is their food is it tastes amazing. So I really wanted some food options, so just taking those raw and creating something.

Jess:

Yeah. And said earlier, I believe it's episode or where I talk about reading food labels. And basically, I just you need to eat less crap and more food. Yeah. So when you're referring for those who don't know about the ingredients, if someone's not that far along on their health journey, think, okay, well, they don't even understand the difference between a whole food and a processed food. So your ingredients are unprocessed

Jennifer:

That's right. you have to start somewhere have to meet people where are. You know, there's different levels of juices. We have different food items all depending on where on their food journey.

Jess:

Yes. I liked that the thing is just start, start implementing more whole food nutrition into lifestyle and try different things. You may like but keep going until you find what works for you. And when you start seeing that you're feeling better, you're going to be more likely to continue on that journey. So I want to talk about a little bit, you might have heard, listeners may have heard okay. These crazy juices or, well, I don't want to, I don't want to do these juice cleanses because I don't want to detox. Can you share a little bit about the benefits juicing are and maybe give some tips on what you can do before you go and do that?

Jennifer:

Yeah. You know, I think no matter how healthy we eat our Soil, everything is so depleted so even we eat our best, we're not getting really fully what our bodies need. I Feel like our bodies also being so overloaded with these because of our environment that, the juicing just adds in. I mean, there is an unbelievable amount of produce that goes into a juice more than you would eat in a sitting. And so I feel like that's one of the things from a nutrient standpoint is you're just getting, you know, 16 ounces of tons of veggies that you couldn't possibly eat.

Jess:

Yes. And we starting on a juice cleanse, or we're taking out some of this process foods, we're removing some these toxins, is there anything that you've seen that's worked for you that when you're going to prepare to do that can help with that? Now your body's detoxing And I don't want people to start this and then get discouraged and oh, I have you know, or I'm not doing all this. So can you share any tips that help along that line they could do ahead of time?

Jennifer:

Yeah. We see that a lot, a lot of people will do a juice cleanse because they want to break their old bad habits. You know, they say it takes three days to change a habit. And so I think that's wise, but. If you eat terrible, leading up to a juice that's exactly what's gonna you're gonna get a headache. You're gonna. All the negative effects of a juice cleanse, it's going to feel the full detox effect as opposed to, if you clean up your diet. Knowing that going to clean it up fully. That is partly why you're doing a juice cleanse. if you, clean up your diet, try to in more fruits and veggies, try to eat less of the junk food. Leading up to it will be so much easier.

Jess:

Yeah, thank for sharing that because I think like so many other things life, need to extreme, right? Either it's all or nothing. And if we can take that approach we don't want this to be a short term fix, it's a long term, sustainable lifestyle change. So only you listening know what you can change at a time. So I really you to go into this as a, like we said, a sustainable. Lifetime change. maybe do work at usin. Maybe you replace one of those process things with the juice, and then you keep going that and you're more likely to have that success because you're going to have a better experience.

Jennifer:

Yeah. I think it's used cleanse a great way to reset. But then after that, exactly, like you said, doing, you know, maybe one juice a day, or just adding in a juice a couple of times a week. I do that. You know, sometimes of if I'm on the run instead of going and grabbing something fast food or whatever, I'll just grab a juice. And it is, I am, when I am a person who I desperately need some people can go forever without food. It's not me. But there are so many nutrients in these juices. They shockingly up more than you would think.

Jess:

Yeah and I think important to share with those who aren't really familiar with it, back to the ingredients one they're great ingredients. Yeah. But also the amount so you can't compare a juice. Yes. It's a liquid, can't in your mind, juice to say, obviously not, you know, a soft drink or a fruit juice, a quote-unquote fruit juice read the label. What is in you're not all these different additives and getting empty calories. You're really getting those great nutrients and those macros. I about that a lot. restricting calories, we should be getting all macros, which is macro. So nutrients that we need. So I want to point that out because in our minds we might thinking, oh, well, this, this juice is a lot more expensive, but it just seems like a drink to them. Sure. But it's not, you it's packed with all these nutrients and different things. So I like to point that out for those who are with juicing and how it works. Yeah, because I know sometimes they can look at the price and be turned off a little, but you have to really get in your mind what you're getting for that.

Jennifer:

That's right. That's one of great things about it being pressed as well is you're retaining, there's not heat involved. So you're retaining the enzymes and everything that's helping the enzymes are helping with the detox they're helping enzymes help food through your body. So, yes, you're keeping that with a cold press.

Jess:

What something you would if someone said, okay, well, what's the difference between, you know, maybe just like anything with marketing when someone. When the companies pick up that something's trending, that could be anything. It could be sugar-free diet, gluten-free vegan, you know, we can go on and on. still important to really, as a consumer, be educated to know the difference. So what would you say would be a difference between, you some other, quote, unquote juice places or smoothie bars.

Jennifer:

Sure.

Jess:

Besides the obvious or what some things they could out for? Is it, is really just saying, okay, where do you source ingredients and in it?

Jennifer:

Yeah, there's a couple things to me. If you're going a it to be organic. It doesn't make sense to me to have loads of produce. know, going into your juice, that's Laden pesticides. So me, that the organic is a really big deal. I also. Not being HPP. So is a form of pasteurization and, but they still it raw juice. And it'd be pasteurized. So if you see it on the shelf says, raw juice, HPP cause it has to be legally. So. but you're losing the enzymes and you're losing some the nutrients. And so to me, know, that's super important. If you're a juice, you want all the benefits of it, not just sugars

Jess:

And I think something that is an way gauge that just like, with other things, if has this really shelf life, they're going to doing something or adding to it. Yes. For it to be able to be good that long that's right. So that's a good way to

Jennifer:

These we say ours are only good for three days. Some of them are good for longer, depending on the acidity level of them.

Jess:

Okay.

Jennifer:

A juice really should not be good for longer than three to five days.

Jess:

Okay. Well thank you. I think that helps a lot there. Well, let us know, jen, how can we reach out to you? Where can we find more information? And I think we're going to be doing a juice cleanse challenge in this fall. So let us know where we can find you and find out more about raw creations.
