PRODUCE TIP

Juicing works best with fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables so make sure you are purchasing good, quality produce each time. This doesn’t mean that you have to buy organic everything. Most fruits and vegetables have a natural protective layer that ward off pesticides and damage, just be sure to always wash everything off beforehand.

Teaching 12+ classes a week takes a lot of energy and can also take a toll on my body. Juicing not only keeps me going throughout the day, but all of produce is packed with vitamins and nutrients that help me stay healthy and performing at my optimum level. The trick to sustainability is eating real food and ensuring that you are fueling your body with whole ingredients, rather than overly processed foods.

INGREDIENTS

1 bag of Baby Carrots

4 Gala Apples (core removed)

2 Lemons

5 Oranges

1 inch of peeled Ginger Root

APPLIANCES

I absolutely LOVE my Breville Juicer! It was a gift from a client of mine a few years ago, and it has been with me ever since. Any juicer you have on-hand will do the trick. If you don’t have a juicer you can also use a good, high-quality blender like Vitamix and strain the juice afterwards to removed the pulp.

STEPS

  1. Gather all of your ingredients, and make sure they are washed.
  2. Peel your lemons and oranges, and make sure that you remove the core from your apples.
  3. Turn on your juicer and begin dropping in each of the ingredients and let the fun begin! I find juicing a little therapeutic so this is the best part for me.
  4. This recipe makes approximately 2-3 bottles (depending on the size of your container), so pour a glass for now and bottle the rest for later.
