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

Juice January What’s for Breakfast?

banana-smoothie-with-turmeric18-680x916

I make this banana, mango, peanut butter, and turmeric smoothie every day.

It fills me up, and I feel satisfied. There’s a protein element, and of course, the anti-inflammatories in the turmeric are beneficial as well.

Banana Mango Peanut Butter Turmeric Smoothie
serves 1

You will need:
– 1 banana
– 1 cup frozen mango
– 2 tablespoons unsweetened peanut butter
– 1 1/2 cups of Almond milk
– 1 inch piece of fresh Turmeric or 1/2 teaspoon dried Turmeric

In your blender, or Nutribullet, combine all ingredients and serve.

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

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
