Remember Jack LaLanne, the uber-fit health guru, who was always telling us about juicers? Well Mid Michigan's version of Jack LaLanne, Dr. Dan Kehres, says ol' Jack knew what he was talking about.
Dr. Dan Kehres is a Saginaw chiropractor with a passion for nutrition. The former college football running back leads an extra-healthy lifestyle and urges you to consider doing the same. He's a regular contributor to NBC 25 Today. Dr. Dan is all about eating things that aren't processed and that's where juicers come in. They are a great way to add fruits, vegetables and fiber to your diet. He suggests getting the fruits and vegetables from your local farmers market. The only downside, cleaning juicers can be a hassle. But it' the way to go, says Dr. Dan. It's one way he adds kale to his diet. Kale is considered by some to be a "superfood". Much like blueberries.
Dan usually brings his shakes to the set with him. OK, they look kinda gross. But they are packed with nutrients and can be quite tasty. He also likes to sneak ginger in there, another one of his favorite foods.
Dr. Dan says get a juicer. Buy one at a garage sale if you have to. You will feel and look better if you add it to your lifestyle of healthy eating.
