Beet Juice, my basic and go to recipe

810050993ccce2818bf3bd6402b0830d-460x690

This beat juice recipe is one I have used for the last 5 years during my juice cleanse, so it’s now become a basic. It’s a really simple recipe that is a great go-to for breakfast, or any time that you need a quick juice. It only has a few ingredients, and it’s delicious to boot!

Beet Juice
roughly 2 servings

You will need:
– 1 beet
– 1 apple
– 3 carrots

To prepare:
Put everything in your blender and blend. This makes about 2 servings, so divide it if you want.

I would love to hear about how it’s going and what you’re juicing.  I don’t know about you, but I am feeling great! xx

Blueberry Ginger Smoothie

Great minds think alike, right? So when my friend Camille Styles posted this recipe last juice January, I flipped for it. Now I’m adding it to my roster for this cleanse.

I love it especially for breakfast. Try this Blueberry Ginger Smoothie.

She’s right, your lips might be Smurf blue, but it’s winter, so what the heck? Blue lips are expected in January.

Thanks, Camille! Happy juicing!

Juice January 2016

Juice January

To celebrate Juice January’s 4th year, I thought I would make sure that we have some pretty wonderful juice recipes. As always, I will include some fun and healthy light meal options. Let’s make this the best year ever. I want to hear from you: I want to hear how it’s going, some of your favorite concoctions, and some of your favorite resources. Let’s make 2016 the best Juice January ever!

I am still rockin’ the Nutribullet, and loving it.

For those of you just joining us, here’s the way it works:

I do this program for 21 days, and combined with exercise, it’s a great way to jump start the year.

Here’s how you get started:

Start on January 1st and end on the 21st. Drink plenty of water along with the juice.
*and no alcohol for 21 days. {Yep that’s right!  No drinkies, and you know that’s a killer for me.}

Your daily regimen:

Breakfast – Drink tea or coffee (limit 1 cup). *You may eat 1 cup plain yogurt + 1/2 cup cereal or 1 egg scrambled. 1 8 oz. glass of water.

*Make your juice right after breakfast! The Nutribullet comes with several containers, so you can make a few recipes and transport your juice if you’re on the go.

10:00 a.m. Snack – 2 cups Juice

12:00 p.m. Lunch – 2 cups Juice

2:00 p.m. Midday Snack – 2 cups Juice

Dinner (5:30- 6:30) – Make a mixed salad and add 1 cup serving of protein. Try chicken, lean beef or fish, and saute fresh vegetables with 2 teaspoons olive oil. I will be sharing lots of healthy and yummy recipes and bringing back a few from previous years that I loved. I will have a couple of guests posting recipes as well.

I also love soup as a dinner option, and I will be posting yummy, healthy recipes along the way along with some of my favorite juice recipes.

I like having some protein for breakfast and for dinner as well. I have found this is a pleasant way to pass the 21 days without starving. This is a 21 day regime that I do, but please be advised that you should be in good health to try this juice semi-fast. I continue to do my exercise regimen, and you should be working out as well. You will be amazed at the energy level you have! I will say that the first week is hard, but the second week is much easier, so hang in there, and by week 3 it’s enjoyable!

Basic Juice Recipe
Kale and Apple Ginger Juice

You will need:

– 1 cup of kale
– 1 apple with the peel
– 1 inch piece of ginger
– 1/4 cup water + 1/4 cup ice

Preparation:

Place all the ingriedients into your NutriBullet or juicer. Process for 30 seconds and enjoy!

To grow your own kale, you can just pop some kale plants into a few pots. I have a garden, and kale has a substantial presence since it’s one of my favorite vegetables.

Let me know how it goes, and comment with any questions you might have about the recipes. I would love to hear what you do for your January Juicing.

Happy juicing; I look forward to hearing from you!

how’s it going?

Picfx Most of you have been juicing for a week now!…YAY! 1 down and 2 to go. You’re probably feeling pretty great. I know I am.

To keep it going make sure you’re mixing it up, drinking lots of water and getting some exercise. I find by the end of the day I am not hungry, but I am looking forward to a light meal around 6:00 pm. The body is amazing and once the GI track gets a rest, the rest of your body starts reaping the benefits.

Please let me know how it’s going and tell me some of your favorite combinations. It’s so great not to feel like I’m doing this alone. Your feedback really gives me a thrill.

Have a great day! Juice it and stay in touch! xx

Its’ January…It’s Juice…It’s Juice January


Every year I love to share the 21 day juice semi-cleanse I do in January. The reason I call it a “semi-cleanse” is because I actually eat a little while juicing. I don’t like the idea of just drinking juice and not chewing + its the best way to get some protein into your fast with using the powdered version which I am not a fan of. In our house it’s come to be known as “Juice January”.

I dust off the Breville Juicer and harvest my kale from the garden, visit the farmers market to stock up on carrots, celery, ginger, beets, cucumbers and apples, pears and herbs like parsley and cilantro. I load my refrigerator with freshly juiced concoctions. I become the mad scientist of juice all of January. This year I will I will share recipes and my meal suggestions.

Here’s how it you get started.

Start on January 1st. end on the 21st. Drink plenty of water along with the juice.
* and No Alcohol for 21 days.{yep that’s right no drinkies and you know that’s a killer for me}

Daily Regime

Breakfast- Drink tea of coffee limit 1 cup. * you may eat 1 cup plain yogurt + 1/2 cup cereal or 1 egg scrambled.1 8 oz. glass of water.

*Make your juice right after breakfast! *You only need to make your juice once per day. Note* I have to-go cups so I can transport my juice if I am working on location.

10:00 a.m. Snack 2 cups Juice

12:00 p.m. Lunch- 2 cups Juice

2:00 p.m. Mid day snack 2 cups Juice

Dinner- 5:30- 6:30 mixed salad, and 1 cup serving of protein chicken, lean beef or fish, saute fresh vegetables with 2 teaspoons olive oil.

I also love soup as a dinner option and I wil be posting yummy healthy recipes along the way + some of my favorite juice combo recipes.

I like having some protein for breakfast and for dinner as well.
I have found this is a pleasant way to pass the 21 days without starving.

2 large bunches of kale, {about 6-8 cups chopped}
