raw food juice

The Green Pearl Juice.

This is, without a doubt, my favorite slightly sweet green juice. It’s also a juice that was born of necessity—a deep need for cellular nourishment on a hot afternoon. To be clear: I don’t own a juicer; instead, I make juice (fiber in, please!) in my VitaMix.

It’s a genius juice to make from less-than-fresh fruits and veggies (aka the last scraps from your fridge)—you can easily use whatever greens and citrus you have on hand.

Why call it the Green Pearl? Because the combination of spinach, cucumber, apple, and lemon is absolutely creamy—it feels mellow and luscious, rather than astringent and bracing. It’s the green juice to make you (or anyone who puts up a fight) love green juice.

Tips on eating healthy whilst roadtripping???? I'm so nervous I don't know what to do

Eating healthy while on the road is FAR easier than you think! Just ensure you’re set up with enough dry goods to keep you going, if you have an esky then pack it up with fruit/prepped veg sticks and water bottles. 

  • dried fruit (banana, apple, mango)
  • seeds and nuts
  • raw food bars
  • coconut water
  • juice poppers
  • popcorn
  • roasted beans, chickpeas
  • muesli bars / cereal 
  • bliss balls

The Squeeze: so much more than a juice bar!

The Squeeze here in NYC (locations) sent me a care package of goodies to try! I’m not super into the juice craze but that is ok because look at all the non-juice items they sent! They bill themselves as “cold pressed juice and raw comfort food” and I was like, what’s raw comfort food? WELL WONDER NO MORE, MEGAN:

I doubt you get more raw comfort food steez than Mac ‘n Cheese Kale Chips, right? And these are soooo good! They def have a mac and cheese quality. And I liked them better than most store-bought kale chips I’ve tried. Still not as yum as homemade but def totally yum.

I also really liked the Tollhouse Nookie. It was like a raw cookie thing and while not so much a dessert item, it would make a yummy healthy breakfast. It was kinda like a chocolate granola cookie.

They also sent the Chocolate Squeezola Granola, which I liked too. It was on the crunchy side, not very chewy. The one juice they sent was the PB&J. I have to be honest, I didn’t really like it. But I don’t know, I’m pretty conservative when it comes to juices and my friend Ariela says it’s like her fave juice there.

Now, here is my most favorite thing!: FunOnions! These are delish and, yes, FUN! I would love to sprinkles these over a loaded baked potato! Or just eat all day. They are sweet and savory and so good!

So often, comfort food is not the food that’s actually good for you–The Squeeze turns that old thinking upside down!

Found a super cool little shop/cafe/hostel called Organic Peddler on our way through South Fork, CO this afternoon. The place is filled with incense, tie dye, crystals, handmade jewelry, 23409283408 kinds of tea, all the organic produce you could hope for, and every single flavor and type of Dr. Bronner’s.

We loved it! Turns out they’re selling the place…. KIND OF wanted to move there, but Adam said no so we had a couple organic, fresh juices and headed on our way.

Raw Food Juice - It Tastes Aweful, But It Works

Before we get to this story, we would like to say that it is true. The raw food juice is not a taste that is going to please everyone. there are some ways though to bring it to life. Adding things like sliced banana’s into the mix or juices such as Peach can really add some great flavour to your green smoothie. 

“Her husband’s week away at spring break this year gave her the time she needed to do a so-called juice reboot.

Not everyone, after all, wants to swap alcohol, caffeine, refined sugar, carbohydrates and all processed food for liquified raw vegetables.

Though loaded with vitamins and minerals, the drink looks like the avocado-colored porcelain popular circa 1975 and tastes, well, too healthy for some without a sprinkling of salt or sugar in the mix.

Lift the glass to your nose and here comes the distinct aroma of celery, if celery can be considered aromatic.

Adding citrus to homemade recipes offsets the bitter flavor in leafy greens such as kale.

But still, this is no fruit smoothie.

It’s a drink with a bit of an acquired taste aspect. And plenty of folks have overcome that aspect to consume other drinks such as coffee, which is neither salty nor sweet before doctoring.

So it was for Debbie Adams, 54, who tried it and liked it enough to stick with after her weeklong reboot in March.

Now, the photographer credits the reboot for improving her vision and helping her to shed 5 pounds, forgo all vitamin and mineral dietary supplements and feel more energetic without changing anything else about her lifestyle.

During the reboot, she drank the veggie juice and lots of water with solid fruits and vegetables and nothing else.

Now, she eats regular balanced meals –

Watching this noisy division may make some wonder what she does to get dietary fiber and what happens to the pulp.

But Adams said neither presents a problem.

"I still eat my salads,” she said. “You can do both.”

As for her waste footprint, she composts the pulp she pulls from the extractor.

By overcoming those two natural objections, she felt free to live into the life she wanted – a life that she yearned for more after watching the film, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead,” a few months before her juice reboot.

Visiting websites such as JointheReboot.com, ForksOverKnives.com, HungryforChange.tv and FoodRevolution.org continued to feed her curiosity and ultimately prompted her take the challenge of eating more healthfully and thoughtfully, she said.

Her husband still won’t drink veggie juice with beets in the mix.

But he will drink everything else – kale, chick peas, lentils and many other vegetables that would never fit on one plate, Adams said.

“You have to decide every day what you’re going to put into your mouth,” she said. “And for us, it’s a lot easier to drink our vegetables than eat them.”“
