    Green Juice Day? Evolution Fresh picked Jan. 26 as the day to get our sippable veges in, all in the spirit of "Turning It Around" in the new year.

    New year's resolutions, the making and keeping of them, provide the fodder for numerous articles at the start of the year, as do topics ranging from "why we shouldn't make resolutions" to "starting over on the resolutions we broke too fast." 

    Perhaps Feb. 1 can be that start-over date, officially, for those people that couldn't quite make a go in January. Here's impetus to jump-start those healthier, cut-down-on-dessert promises, the ones that involve taking in more greens: Green Juice Day.

    Don't run to your handy food calendar, the one that lists all of the yearly holidays, to find this one: It's new, and Evolution Fresh, a maker of green juicery, is the outfit that declared it should be a Thing. (Which begs the question how foodstuffs initially made our food holiday calendar: committee meetings? Convention votes? Questions, questions.)

    You can see all on the National Day Calendar, if you don't already have every date memorized (we know you know that April 5 is National Deep Dish Pizza Day).

    But Jan. 26 is Green Juice Day, and this end-of-January event comes with a resolution-goosing label: "Turn It Around." Evolution Fresh realizes that vows made on Dec. 31 might be, well, lagging at this point, but there is still time to turn it around and start anew. 

    The company has paired up with Postmates to get "Green Juice Breaks" out to people in 15 cities. The three-pack includes 15.2-ounce servings of Sweet Greens and Lemon juices. How to get on this tasty wagon? Go here and sign up.

    Celery, cucumber, kale, parsley, and more fresh from the vege drawer goodies await. As does practically a whole year of eating a bit better. Didn't quite get that going on Jan. 1? Let Jan. 26 -- Green Juice Day -- be your inspiration to "Turn It Around" and go green.
