Color + Intuition = Daily Juice Meditation 2

Jane's Juice Jane's Juice

Thanks to Jane, here’s the second version of her juice meditation every morning.

If you’re using a Nutribullet, reduce the ingredients by half and add a cup of water, the capacity in smaller in a Nutribullet, Jane uses a Breville Juicer.

Green juice always* has:

– 1 peeled lime
– 2”-3” chunk of ginger
– Small pile of mint leaves
– Large pile of greens—usually a combination of lacinato and curly kale, spinach, parsley
– ½ pineapple, including the core
– 1-2 granny smith apples

And sometimes I add:

– A small handful of arugula for a peppery kick
– Celery
– Peeled cucumber
– Fennel (fronds & bulb)
– Honeydew melon

OK, always isn’t accurate. Most of the time I follow the recipe above, but if I don’t have one of these, it doesn’t really matter. Sometimes pears or asian pears substitute for apples or are added to both orange and green juice.

Trust your intuition as you develop your own proportions. This makes enough to have a little leftover for an evening glass or to share the colorful glass of happiness with family and friends. Alternate your colors and enjoy!

Thanks Jane xx

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!

4e05870e70152f797772c5361bead356

For the last juice recipe in Juicing January I wanted to share a green juice with you. I love spinach juice! it’s super mellow and with a twist of lime it kind of tastes like limeade.

Pineapple, Apple & Spinach Juice
1 serving
You will need:
– 4 cups of baby spinach
– 1 small lime
– 1 apple
– 1 cup of pineapple

Throw everything in your juicer and chill. This makes a great afternoon pick me up.

Hope your juicing is going well! I feel more energized, lighter and I may even extend it for a few more weeks. The truth is that it’s so easy. I don’t have to think about what to have for breakfast or lunch, it’s healthy and with a light meal at dinner I get the quality chew time I need. 🙂 Yep I’m pretty sure that my juicer is becoming a permanent appliance on my counter.

Happy Juicing and don’t forget to enter the Minted giveaway!
