If you are staring a juice cleanse, then you need some juice cleanse recipes! There are a lot of helpful books, websites information galore on the juice recipes you should try. My favorite thing to do? Is get recommendations and trust friends who have already tried some!
For my juice recipes and what to buy preparation I went to friends and the good ol’fashion NYC fruit cart guy! With there recommendations and recipes I had more than enough to work with to get my grocery shopping done for a weeks worth of juicing!
Here were the recipes my friend Amanda tried out and loved:
6 kale leaves
4 celery stalks
2 green apples
1 piece of ginger
1 bunch fresh parsley
1 handful watercress
4 broccoli spears
3 celery sticks
1 celery stick
a piece of ginger
And some I would add:
1/4 of Papaya
So to prepare myself I went out first looking for the recipes I would be using and then buying the necessary ingredients. You want to make sure not to buy too many too far in advance since fruits and vegetables are best when they are fresh.
Many times people think that doing this or eating in a healthier way is expensive or that cannot afford it, but it is NOT! I think it is just a sorry excuse for people who are too lazy to show their body some love 🙂
I went to a local farmers market and came out with a cart full of stuff enough to last me one who week! for 2 people drinking juices I spent a total of $52, the cost of 3 cocktail drinks at a hip NYC club.
Have a favorite juice recipe you would like to share?

Is it possible to lose the belly fat without starving?? You betcha! With Spring only a few days away as weather heats up our clothes come right down! We start to show a lot more skin and have less big baggy clothes to cover up some of the not so in shape areas of our bodies. As a former “Tortilla Girl” I have struggled with weight for a large part of my life, but happy to say that as of age 25 and now more than 3 years I have mastered the art of staying healthy and in shape.
And no people I am not born with that crazy metabolism where I can eat junk and fattening foods and be skinny. I gain weight quite fast. And to my other snobby skeptical people who think “oh of course she is skinny because she doesn’t eat anything!” Then sorry to burst your bubble but there are better things to do with your life than be jealous of my shape and my lifestyle that brings me to wine and dine at some of the best places in the world, with the best people.
Losing weight and staying in shape is easy, unless of course you have a medical issue which you should get professional help, but for the other millions of men and women who have no excuse then just attempt to start one day and follow a healthy eating plan not just to be skinny, but be healthy. I too know tons of “skinny” people who well… just aren’t very healthy. They have mushy arms and legs, cant walk up stairs if you paid them and have cholesterol levels higher than most. So skinny does not mean healthy. So I have a lot to share, from my own transformation, but in this post I will simply share the fundamentals and in the next few weeks I will share some of my favorite low calorie, low fat and high in nutrition recipes that are simple to make and cheap!
