Fresh juice from organic fruits and veggies

Juicing is a fantastic way for anyone to add enzymes and nutrients into their daily routine without much difficulty at all!  When drinking a juice, even one a day, you can easily consume the daily recommended servings of fruits and veggies, all in one go (but, of course, you will hopefully be eating veggies all day too!).

In addition to allowing us to consume more vegetables than we would be able to eat, the process of juicing allows for the enzymes and nutrients to be quickly and efficiently absorbed by the body.  In today’s society, most of us have a suffering digestive system in one way or another, which means many nutrients we consume through our food are not actually assimilated into the body, but rather discarded as waste.  Which means… we need more nutrients and enzymes!  Enter fresh juice- the body can quickly take in all the goodness it has to offer without needing to spend energy creating enzymes internally or digesting each bit of food.

Stop by The Sprout to restock your body’s nutrients and start on your journey to better health and living!

An example of a weekly CSA share

The Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model allows for consumers to purchase shares in the farm for a season in return for a specific amount of produce/product each week. Some farms have pick-up locations while others will deliver and most farms offer different size shares.  It is the best way to get the freshest, seasonal, local and organic veggies each week.  These veggies will provide you the highest nutritional content, as well as supporting your local economy and helping your wallet, as most are an excellent deal for the amount and quality of fruits and vegetables received.

Here is a list of CSA’s available around the Charleston area:
