Juice Cleanse Recipes

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!
Juice Cleanse Recipes

Here were the recipes my friend Amanda tried out and loved:

Mean Green
6 kale leaves
1 cucumber
4 celery stalks
2 green apples
1 lemon
1 piece of ginger

Green Goddess
1 bunch fresh parsley
1 handful watercress
4 broccoli spears
1/2 pineapple

2 beets
2 apples
3 celery sticks

2 beets
3 carrots
2 apples
2 oranges
1 celery stick
a piece of ginger

And some I would add:

2 Oranges
4-5 Carrots
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?

Jack LaLanne Juicer Review

Juice! Juice! Juice! We all know Jack LaLanne here is a Jack LaLanne Juicer Review. I cannot help to think of the old Saturday Night Live skit with Jim Carey as the “Juice Man”. This week I am venturing to share with you all about my juicing experience including fist sharing with you a review on the Jack LaLanne juicer. I will also share with you juice recipes my favorite juice recipes and my least favorite. I have always been an advocate for health and fitness. I myself went through my own health & body transformation loosing a total of 65 pounds over 5 years ago and the existing thing is without buying expensive supplements full of ingredients that I can not pronounce and a laundry list of synthetic ingredients, I have maintained my figure and healthy lifestyle! I deeply understand the benefits of feeling good inside and also in a superficial world what feeling good abut yourself outwardly can do for yourself and your body.

In the world of great relationships in friendship, family and love you have to love YOU first! So this week I venture to do some juicing and share it with you. First important thing with juicing is making sure you have a great juicer. Some things I look for are; Easy to use; produces a lot of juice; and lastly easy to clean.

In this post I am reviewing the Jack LaLanne’s Juicer he has several, the one I bought is the one pictured below.

For a price point this juicer was reasonably priced at $99 at Bed Bath and Beyond. It comes in a nice white plastic finish, which makes any kitchen look cooler. As far as how this faired in making juices I would have to give it a 2.5 star rating. Some of the things I noticed I am sharing below:


Nice style
$99 price is reasonable
Large compartment for vegetable and fruit peels
Easy to clean


Did not produce as much juice as I have seen in other juicers
Stained after one use…. imagine what it will look like after 5!
To many compartments makes it complicated to clean.

Would I keep it or recommend to a friend?
No. I would have to say that I will be taking advantage of the return policy for this juicer and be purchasing another one. Many times you may not want to spend the extra $20-40, but in my opinion a juicer is something that will and should be a part of your everyday life and health so you might as well purchase the best you can afford.

Have you ever made your own juices? Done a juice cleanse before? Have you used this juicer? Do you have a better one you recommend?
