When I was first introduced to JuicePlus, I was intrigued by "Jetsons food" and decided to give it a try because I knew I didn't get enough fruits and veggies in my diet.
One of my favorite cartoons growing up was the Jetsons. Among many other things, like the flying cars and robots, I always loved that they could put all their food into little capsules. When I heard about Juice Plus and fruits and veggies in capsules I was intrigued immediately!
Added to my cartoon loving childhood, in all seriousness, I knew I was not getting enough fruits and veggies in my diet. No question. Not even close. I figured that I would give it a try and if nothing else, know that I was getting more fruits (and mostly) veggies into my system. I am just not someone who would choose to sit down to watch a movie with a big bowl of... broccoli. My daughter does do this believe it or not.
So, a bit of a background story... I have had Type 2 diabetes for several years now. Started with gestational diabetes with both of my pregnancies and later came back as Type 2. I had been struggling with low energy and my blood sugars constantly up and down. Almost immediately (well, within about a week or so) after starting to eat Juice Plus I noticed my blood sugars starting to even out. Within a couple of months the evening out turned into better control and a lower A1C. Just shy of a year into taking Juice Plus, I was down to just one third of one of the meds I am on - with my doctor’s monitoring of course. I have much better control of my sugars and am craving healthier alternatives rather than my old go-tos like chips and chocolate. I am still on my health journey with diabetes, but Juice Plus has made a huge difference with not only my sugars, but by flooding my body with fruits, veggies, berries and omegas, (I take all 4 of our capsules). I have more productive energy than I can ever remember having.
My daughter started taking Juice Plus with me - why not - she got it for free through the Healthy Starts for Families program when I decided to start eating Juice Plus. She watched her severe excema disappear. She went from hiding her arms under long sleeves last summer to wearing tank tops. As a mom, that makes me feel good.
I am thrilled I made the decision to being JuicePlus into my family and start sharing it with - in all honesty- everyone. I look forward to making continued updates on all the positive changes my family is seeing!

Just shy of a year after I started taking Juice Plus Capsules, I ordered my Tower Garden. Before ordering, I spent many months admiring Tower Gardens that other folks I know had - some friends even have multiple Towers! I brought my family to events so they could see the Towers in person - I think they got sick of me talking about it! I went back and forth - did I have the space for it? Would I like growing in my house? Would my dogs destroy it? Was it going to be one of those projects that I buy and then don't use to the fullest of its ability? I have always had a stop/start; love/hate relationship with gardening - would I follow through?
I AM SO HAPPY I BOUGHT MY TOWER!!
I chose the Tower Garden Home (the white base in the picture). Because it has a smaller footprint and I knew I would want to grow inside during the winter months. I'll let you in on a secret... I am ordering a Tower Garden Flex (the green base in the picture) for outside this coming spring because there is no way I won't want to keep growing indoors and I LOVED growing outside last summer on my Tower! The seeds were simple to grow in the rock wool cubes and grew faster than I expected. Once I put the seedlings in the Tower I was amazed at how quickly they grew. I had some of the same plants in a raised bed garden as I was growing in my Tower - they grew bigger and produced more bounty in my Tower than in my raised bed dirt garden. The taste was amazing too!
I have moved my tower inside and attached the grow lights now that our short New England growing season has ended. When I replanted my Tower inside, I chose to go with multiple lettuces, spinach and herbs. Now when anyone in the house goes to make a salad or add some lettuce or herbs to a dish they are making, they just clip what they need from the Tower. Burger and sandwich toppings have never tasted so good! Gone are the days when I had to buy lettuce and spinach at the grocery store and watch as some of it went bad in the fridge. Hello to fresh, healthy flavorful greens for my family even on the coldest of winter days. I whole heartedly recommend Tower Garden growing to everyone! Also, to answer the dog question - I have 4 dogs and none of them have touched a single plant. Sometimes they watch and tilt their heads in that cute dog curiosity way when they hear the water trickle down, but that is it. In reality, who couldn't use more cute dog head tilt in their lives - Right?!
