Juice January 2017! Celebrating 5 years of Juice January.

2015-12-01_14-57-40

Hey hey, my juice people! This is the 5th year of juicing in January who’s in?!

For the next 21 days, we will take this journey together.

For those of you just joining us, here are the ground rules for making these 21 days easy, fun, and delicious.

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 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

To prepare:
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.

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

Happy juicing; If you’re celebrating 5 years of Juice January with me please let me know! xx

Fresh Starts

Every year, January shows up and I begin the year with a fresh start.
I love the idea of resting my GI track and the best way I know how is to introduce juice into my diet. After all the over eating and indulging it seems like the natural progression of things. As you know I love to throw parties and cook. My cookbook from Rizzoli will be hitting shelves in October so more than usual I have been cooking, testing and of course tasting all the recipes in my cookbook. yum + ugh.

So I need to take some time this month to regroup and take a break from all the sugary cookies, yummy cakes and pies, candy plus all the fatty cheeses and fried foods,charcuterie, that show up at the holidays at parties,not to mention the fantastic cocktails. Oh my.

If you’ve never juiced before this is a great opportunity to start. It’s not a fast. I like to think of it as a break and rest for your tummy and your systems.

It’s not a weight loss program it is a reprogramming of your eating habits.

Here’s a great recipe for day 2

Kale-Berry Juicey Shake

4 cups of Kale {about 2 bunches}
2 cups of strawberries
2 pears
1 cucumber
1/2 cup almond milk *optional

Put all fruits and veggies through a feed tube of a juicer pour juice into a pitcher, stir the almond milk into the juice mixture and enjoy.

YUMMY!

Tonight we will have grilled lemon chicken breast over a tossed salad for dinner.
I will start posting healthy dinner options along with some breakfast suggestions over the next few weeks.

Here’s the chicken recipe.

* I serve this chicken over fresh salad like arugula or mixed spring mix add tomatoes and sliced red onions and a quarter of an avocado. splash some red wine vinegar over the salad and enjoy.

Lemon Chicken
serves 4

Marinade
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon zest
juice of one lemon
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh thyme
1 teaspoon dijon mustard

2 large boneless organic chicken breasts

whisk all ingredients for the marinade in a bowl, place chicken into a ziplock bag and pour marinade over the chicken close the ziplock bag. Place chicken and marinade into the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
Place chicken on a hot grill or saute pan {if you are cooking in a pan make sure to spray with pam or 2 tablespoons olive oil} saute until completely cooked about 10 minutes on each side.
160 degrees with a thermometer.

Let me know how you’re doing and any tips you might have. Don’t forget to drink as much water as you can.

Oh and go for a long walk if you can this week.

Cheers #happyjuicing!

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.

This is a 21 day regime that I do, please be advised that you should be in good health to try this Juice semi-fast
I will say that the first week is hard, the second week is much easier so hang in there, and by week 3 it’s enjoyable.
