While spending the morning with Kat Tanita in her charming bungalow in Venice, we learned the secret to a healthy glow truly starts from the inside out. A longtime sufferer of digestive issues, the lifestyle and fashion blogger behind With Love From Kat revealed it was eating clean on a consistent basis that eventually healed her digestion issues. Read more of her story below, and everything you need to know to make this delicious and healthy green juice at home.
“For years, I struggled with digestion problems. My stomach was always in knots and I looked 6 months pregnant after every meal – even small ones. It was uncomfortable and embarrassing and I turned to everyone for answers – top gastroenterologists, naturopaths, nutritions, internal medicine people. Not one of them could figure out what was wrong with me and they all misdiagnosed me. I spent thousands of dollars on pills, vitamins, supplements, shakes, doctor visits – literally nothing helped.
So after years of struggling, I decided to take matters into my own hands and research and experiment with different things. Turns out for me, eating fresh, organic, healthy and balanced meals mostly free of gluten, dairy, and refined sugar was the answer,” she says.
Eating clean on a consistent basis healed my digestion issues. Having a green juice every morning gave me that extra pep in my step and changed everything.
“I realized how powerful food is – you really are what you eat! Real food does heal.” –Kat Tanita
