Today’s interview was super practical. I had the pleasure of interviewing an incredible entrepreneur, Kimmye Bohannon. She is one of the founders of The Weekly Juicery. Kimmye has completely made it in the juicing industry and built a fabulous business by being steadfast in acknowledging that she is not there to make things taste good, but to make you feel amazing. She has been consistent in setting the highest possible standard in terms of what she creates and puts out there.
This episode we get right into the nitty-gritty of juicing. We talk about the benefits of juicing vs. smoothies vs. just eating your vegetables whole. We also talked all about how to take the grinds, fiber, and clean up — all the components of juicing that dissuade us — and turn them into some really incredible ideas in your kitchen. If you’ve ever looked at juicing and tried to understand how it helps you and how to include it in your weekly routine — then this interview is for you!
