Jogger’s Paradise

3 oranges

Here is a muscle-blasting, power-pushing juice recipe for joggers.  Clean blood, clean muscles, and enzyme-rich, nutrient-packed, fuel make for intense aerobic activity. Try this juice out on a five-mile jog. Add a little crushed ice and let your taste buds sing. Sip slowly.

Citrus Slurp

Citrus juice made from a hand citrus juicer and a centrifugal force juice extractor can be quite different. The electric juice extractor produces a thick frothy juice, which is more tart. The quality and the nutritional value of the two are similar so it is only a matter of preference.  This is an awesome wake-up and is healthier than coffee. It may take a little more time to make, but you will gain time because of the sharp mind that you will have in whatever you do.

The Hyper House Cleaner

Pineapple Piper

Race Runner

1 lemon
2 radish
1 beet
1 slice Spanish onion
2 sweet potato
1 celery
2 Tbs. cider vinegar

A sweet and zingy flavor.  Choose raw cider vinegar with mother present.  A great detoxifier.

Red Ice

1 beet
1 sweet potato
2 apples

1/2 can of frozen apple concentrate

Crush ice or blend with water till slush. Add juice and get ready to chill out. Cool down those forces of frustration. Be at peace in the storm. This drink is made to refresh your cells like the Spirit is made to refresh your soul. Sit back and consider your blessings. Look at what is with in. You are kind, loving, encouraging, full of hope and at peace. A sign that God is at work within.

The Pain Remover

1 lemon
1 orange
3 hard pears
3 apples

Bruises, aches and sprains can be irritated by a toxic bloodstream and a high-protein diet. But a low-protein, natural diet, lessens irritation and reduces inflammation. Not only does this juice taste delightful, it assists in the healing process. Adam and Eve never woke up stiff with arthritis. Perfect food sustaining perfect bodies. It is our heritage to be healthy and pain free.

The Brain Stimulator

1 oranges
1 hard pears
1 yam
1 grapefruit
1 apple

Scientists have determined that we use only 10 percent of the brain. Living on coffee and donuts reduces that percentage to 2 percent. Here is a juice to stimulate all of that unused percentage back into activity. For this juice to be effective, you need a five-day juice fast to clear the coffee, donut and junk food residues out of the bloodstream. Once clear, this wide-spectrum, nutrient-rich juice will stir the brain into super-activity. Better memory, sharper thinking and good study techniques are the tools for great marks. No more morning brain fog. Now you can leap out of bed to study while brushing your teeth and preparing for the day.

Super Duper Spicy Tomato

3 ripe tomatoes
1/2 green or red pepper
1 celery stock
1 apple
1 Tbs. Good Tasting Yeast
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 Tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Worcestershire
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
3 drops Louisiana Hot Sauce (optional for the real man)

Do you enjoy bungi jumping? How about sky diving? If you have an adventurous personality, then this is the perfect juice for you. When you are fasting, drinking this juice may make you feel like you have just eaten a large pizza. If you are on a cleansing fast, eliminate the good tasting yeast.

Fabulous Fennel

1 fennel bulb
1/2 beet with greens
2 apples

If you enjoy the taste of licorice, you will love fennel. This unusual vegetable looks like fat celery with feathers. Fennel helps your eyes to increase in sensitivity, overcoming night blindness. Some have found fennel juice good for relieving migraine headaches.

Garlic Breath Delight

2 tomatoes
2 apples
1 clove of garlic
sprig of parsley

This bacteria buster means business. Garlic reduces blood pressure, helps with the problem of blood clotting, lowering the LDL which increases bad cholesterol. Garlic boosts the immune system and encourages the recovery of heart attack victims. Garlic contains allicin which inhibits bacterial growth and fungus, helping with yeast over-growths, and useful in treating candida. Garlic increases the flow of digestive enzymes and encourages detoxification through the skin. The addition of parsley helps in combating the unpleasant odor of garlic. This juice is worth losing a few friends over.

The Cancer Killer

1 beet
1 carrot
1 celery stick
1/2 potato
1 radish

Rudolf Breuss’s, anticancer mixture has helped thousands of suffering people. This juice blend, during fasting, exerts a death blow on cancer. This was attested by over 24,000 patients who wrote him describing relief from their diseases. His patients were given small amounts of this juice over 42 days. A tea composed of nettle, St. John’s wart, marigold, artemisi and monarda was also given. By “starving out” the cancer, Rudolf Breuss reported a 96% success rate for the thousands of patients he treated over 30 years of practice. (Rudolf Breuss died in 1989 at 93 years of age.)

Its composition is: 55% beet root, 20% celery root, 20% carrot, 3% potato, 2% radish.

Apple-berry Better Bladder

2 apples
1 1/4 cups of cranberries

Cranberry juice is a powerful healing tonic, filled with quinine which changes to hippuric acid in the liver. Hippuric acid is able to assist in the removal of purines, uric acid, urea and toxic build-up in the prostate gland, testicles, kidneys and bladder. An excellent preventative juice for North American men who are battling the increased risk of prostate cancer. It is a wonderful defense against yeast infections for women. Cut apples into wedges, seeds and all.

The Niagara Falls Cleanser

1 wedge watermelon
1/2 lb. red grapes

Watermelon rind has chlorophyll, vitamin A, protein, potassium, zinc, iodine, nucleic acids and enzymes which aid digestion. Ninety-five percent of the nutritional content in watermelon is in the rind. The seeds may be a little noisy but are harmless to the juicer.

You may be curious about the name. When you put a sloppy wet piece of watermelon in the juicer it comes out like Niagara Falls. Because watermelon is a great diuretic, your kidneys and bladder will experience a honeymoon of youthful health.

If you are short on money, watermelon juice is the ticket. You can add just about anything to watermelon juice, so again, we encourage you to have some fun.

My Favorite

one cantaloupe
5 ice cubes
2 Tbs. of Sucanat
dash of cinnamon

Juice the cantaloupe and blend with Sucanat, cinnamon and ice cubes.

This juice recipe has become our favorite drink. Stunningly refreshing and full of flavor. Has more than 15,000 I.U. of vitamin A and over three times the vitamin C content of an apple. It also contains myoinositol, a lipid which helps with anxiety, insomnia and in battling hardening of the arteries. It also contains the greatest amount of digestive enzymes. Melons are recommended by the American Cancer Society as powerful agents in the fight against intestinal and skin cancer. Cantaloupe contains approximately 100 calories, yet it is dense in nutrients. This makes melon a perfect food for healing and weight loss. Delicious, filling and low in calories.

Cucumber is great for the skin, contains vitamins A & C, potassium, magnesium and more.
Spinach is a good source of iron, minerals, dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, it contains some protein, and the list goes on.

Golden Delicious Apple rich in dietary fiber, vitamin C, and provides natural sweetness.

All this green goodness is in one glass!

Asparagus Tomato Sauce atop Zucchini Noodles

Ingredients (serves 1):
1 Small Zucchini, sliced/peeled/etc. into noodles
1 Large Tomato, chopped
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/4 Cup of Asparagus, chopped
1/4 Cup of Green Onions, or White Onion
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning Mix
1/2-1 tsp. Garlic Powder, or 1-2 Garlic Cloves, minced
Sea Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper to taste

Directions:
Saute green onions with asparagus until the green onions brown a little, about 3 minutes over medium heat. Add in tomato, herbs, and garlic powder and simmer over low-medium heat until you can mash up the tomato a bit to create a chunky sauce. Season with sea salt & pepper to taste, add a bit of red pepper flakes for some spice. Top the zucchini noodles with the sauce and toss together, serve while warm.

Power Juices Recipes


power juicer recipesPower juices are ideal for sports people or anyone who leads an energetic lifestyle. Juices are easy and quick to drink giving you carbohydrates for energy and bundles of other vital nutrients necessary for sport. They keep you going before, during and after exercise. Sometimes after training and competition, sports people don’t feel like eating, so drinking juice can be the answer, not only hydrating but giving that extra boost of energy needed to recover.Because of the high fluid content and high carbohydrate and nutrient, juice should be part of your daily training program. Not only proving to be helpful in boosting your energy levels, juice will boost your health.A good fluid intake, whoever you are or what ever you do, is essential to life. Without adequate fluids the body cannot function properly. Dehydration can cause headaches, fatigue and effect quick reflexes. An athlete will sweat more while he is training, so it depends on weight and height how much fluid a day you need to drink. In hotter weather you may sweat more than on cooler windy days.The average person should drink 2 litres of water a day. An athlete will need much more than this. You should always drink before exercise, during exercise and after exercise.Our power juicer recipes are great :

  • before training - take your hunger pangs away;
  • during training - you need to replace fluid and energy;
  • after training - especially if it is very hot
If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.(Hippocrates)Calcium and iron are vital to someone doing physical exercise. Calcium protects our bones from injury and, in the event of a fracture, it helps to repair. Hard training can destroy our red cells, while eating foods high in iron can help restore the balance.Because of the increase in energy your body may need extra protein while training. Protein helps repair and renew tissue while giving extra energy.Calcium protects and repairs bones : milk, yoghurt, cheese, oranges, apricots, and green veg are essential.Iron restores and maintains red blood cells : red meat, liver, lentils, dates and figs are essential.Protein helps repair and renew cells : meat, poultry, eggs, cheese, yogurt, lentils, beans and peas are ideal.
Calcium JuiceCalcium JuiceFull of clacium for people on the move
  • 3 small florrets of fresh broccoli pieces
  • 3 medium carrots topped and tailed
  • 1 apple
  • small handful fresh parsley
Place all the ingredients into the juicer then pour into a glass to enjoy.
Zappy Sports JuiceThis is a nice light juice.
  • 1 apple
  • 2 medium size carrots
  • piece of root ginger (1cm)
Cut the apple, carrots and ginger into small pieces before putting into the juicer. Pour and enjoy.

  • 175g green grapes
  • half a galia melon
Peeling off the skin of the melon cut the flesh into small pieces. Juice both the melon flesh and the grapes together in the juicer. Add water to dilute.

Liver Juicing


liver juicingLiver juicing - The most important thing you can do for your liver is to eat a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Juicing is an excellent way of obtaining lots of vitimins and minerals however don’t forget your body also needs fibre so along with your juice eat a piece of fruit or veg.By avoiding drinking alcohol you do your liver a huge favour. Alcohol is a poison to the body which the liver has to get rid of. Over time over indulgence can actually cause damage which in some cases can be irreparable.Here is an interesting fact: If you are trying to lose weight  drinking alcolhol will only slow you weight lose. Being a poison your liver must deal with the alcohol first therefore any food eaten at the time will be stored as fat.

Look at some of the functions of the liver to find out why this is such an important organ :

  • Regulation of Blood - the liver removes excess glucose from the blood and stores it as glycogen converting it back when required.
  • Production of Bile - the liver continuously produces bile which is then stored in the gallbladder to be used in assisting digestion.
  • Storage of Iron - the liver stores millions of red blood cell every day.
  • Detoxication - poisonous products such as alcohol are detoxified in the liver.
  • Storage of Vitamins- vitamins A and D are stored by the liver.
A particularly good way for your liver to start the day is by squeezing a little lemon juice into a glass of warm water. Lemons are a good all round cleanser.Avoid drinking cold water first thing in the morning as this only gives your stomach a fright!
Apple and Carrot Liver Juicing - beetroots are a great blood cleanser, apple is a detoxifier and celery helps reduce acidity.



  • 2 apples
  • 1 carrot
  • half lemon
  • half yellow pepper
  • half celery stick
  • 1 raw beetroot ball
Juice together and drink straight away.Beets and Orange Liver Juicing - ginger is a natural antibiotic.
  • 2 beetroots
  • 0.5 cm ginger
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 orange
Juice together and drink straight away.

Raw Curly Kale Chips
I’ve been wanting to make these every since I got my dehydrator (which I LOVE), and they turned out so delicious! The execution is very easy, and these satisfy that craving for salty, crunchy chips and are much healthier! Even my skeptical omnivore family loved them! :D
Ingredients:
1 Bunch Curly Kale (washed)
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. Nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
Directions:
Tear the kale into smaller pieces, keep in mind that they will shrink to almost half their size. In a large bowl, toss the leaves with the oil, nutritional yeast and sea salt until it evenly coats the leaves. Place on dehydrator sheets and set temperature to 115F for 4 to 6 hours (mine were done in 4). When they are fully done and crunchy, serve them up! My family ate them within minutes, no lie.

Place on dehydrator sheets and set temperature to 115F for 4 to 6 hours (mine were done in 4). When they are fully done and crunchy, serve them up! My family ate them within minutes, no lie.

Simple Lunch Salad
Spinach, cherry tomatoes, radishes, and sugar snap peas; quite refreshing!
(Also, three days away from my tumblr and it feels like ages!)

Coloful Lunch Salad
This kind of meal is always great to pack the night before, and have for lunch at work the next day. Preparing lunches this way keeps you eating healthier at work, and helps you save money! This lunch of mine consisted of lettuce, cherry tomatoes, radishes, green onions, celery, pecans, and raisins; I also ended up drizzling a little Italian dressing on it at work. Yum!

IN OTHER NEWS: I am ONE PERSON away from hitting 3,000 FOLLOWERS! This is absolutely SPECTACULAR! I love each and every one of you. That is why I have decided that I will be putting on a GIVEAWAY super soon, and it will be a desert! I’m thinking something chocolatey… What do you guys think?

Mango Citrus Soft Serve Ice Cream
I have a new juicer which has a blank plate and I’m so glad that I got to finally test it out! This can also be made in a food processor or blender, although for a blender you may need to add a little water to the mix. For this awesome soft serve I chopped up 2 mangos without skin and froze them, then combined them with the juice of one lime and one orange and pureed them completely. Garnish with some dried coconut and lime zest!

Banana & Raw Peanut Butter Stacks 
Slice a ripe banana up, spread some peanut butter in between two pieces, drizzle a teeny bit of maple syrup or agave nectar over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and cocoa powder. This plate is great for breakfast, dessert or anytime you need a snack!
