Mindset Health Tip
This week is about Welcoming Challenges!
Viewing challenges as opportunities for a different path or personal growth is a way to reframe situations and reduce action-paralyzing fear responses. It creates empowerment and control!
HERE is a wonderful TedTalk by Carolyn Rivera to help you get ready…
Functional Medicine Corner
For those of us who focus on fueling our body with the food we eat or use food as medicine, one primary consideration is to find foods that are most nutrient dense. And one of the arguments used by those who advocate for the vegan diet argue that plants are the best way to get nutrients. I’ve spoken in past newsletters about the phytochemicals in many plants, and there are several fruits and veggies that are super foods. However, meat and dairy products can also pack quite the nutrient punch.
When looking at nutrient value, plant products deliver much larger quantities of nutrients like:
Vitamin C, which supports our immune system as well as collagen production.
Carotenoids and flavonoids, both powerful antioxidants that help to suppress inflammation and protect our heart and nervous system.
Prebiotic fiber that helps to support the beneficial bacteria living in our gut.
Polyphenols are cardioprotective and also improve blood sugar levels.
However, animal products are higher in the following nutrients:
Vitamin B12, iron and zinc, which all help to support energy production, support blood and oxygen levels and supply our immune system.
Vitamins A, D and K2 are all helpful in supporting a robust immune system.
Creatine, taurine and carnitine, which are all primary protein building blocks that help us build and maintain muscle as well as support our brain and detoxification processes.
EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids that help in maintaining brain health, as well as decreasing inflammation and supporting the cardiovascular system.
If you are interested in diving deeper into this, here is an article written by a PhD surrounding this topic.

Member of the Month
Introducing Renee Huyck!
This incredible athlete is one tough cookie! She works hard here at Mindset and she is an incredible pitcher in her main sport of softball. If she is on the mound, you don’t want to be in the batter’s box.
Renee is a force to be reckoned with! She works hard, lifts heavy and focuses on her technique during every movement! She might be quiet at times but that is only because she is FOCUSED.
Give her some love as she is in training for her upcoming softball season!!!
We are overjoyed to announce our partnership with MRC Artworks!

Does Juicy Leaf use organic fruits and vegetables?
- We strictly use certified organic or local, organically grown produce unless an item is on the “EWG Clean Fifteen” list; e.g. pineapples, melons, etc.
What’s the difference between a juice and a smoothie?
- The main difference is fiber. Most of the insoluble fiber is removed in the juicing process.
- By taking the fiber out, you can pack more fruit & veggie nutrients into a juice than you can into a smoothie of the same size.
- The lack of insoluble fiber allows your body to rapidly absorb the nutrients while expending minimal digestive effort.
- Smoothies are made by pulverizing fruit/veggies with liquid in a blender. The insoluble fiber, which helps keep things moving through your system, is maintained in the process.
What are the benefits of juice?
- Several servings of fruit & veg nutrition effortlessly absorbed without energy taxing digestion.
- Easy way to incorporate more fruits and veg in diet than eating produce alone.
- Boosts immunity and energy. Alkalizing, chronic illness prevention, helps aid in weight loss, clear skin, healthy hair.
