Continuing our Juice recipe series (those which don’t require a juicer), this is a great juice for after your workouts! Almonds’ protein helps build and repair muscle, plus the potassium (twice as much as you get in two bananas) balances your electrolytes and fluids.

Simply blend, and enjoy! 



Continuing the series of immune booster juices, this is a straight-forward juice recipe that will help you battle any pesky little immune busters that may be lurking in your bod, and give you a feel-good, natural energy booster. Ward off colds with this vitamin bomb! The kiwis alone pack nearly twice your daily vitamin C—and the citrus delivers even more of the cold-busting vitamin.



Continuing my juicing series for the day, here’s one that promises to help lift your spirits, give a burst of energy and ward off anything that fabulous immune system of yours might be fighting off.  A swig of this vitamin-packed (A, B, C, E) beverage fuels your whole body, and helps fight aging: Lutein plus vitamins A and C up collagen production (for strong bones and younger-looking skin).

Who can beat that?

Thanks to a recent gift from my parents, the fam and I are enjoying some delicious fresh juice on our new Jack LaLanne juicer.  Jack Lalanne was known for his incredible health and endurance and was one of the early pioneers of the benefits of exercising, eating right, and yes, juicing. He’s famous for swimming 1 1/2 miles in the cold California waters, towing 70 boats, carrying 70 people, handcuffed and shackled at the age of 70. He was a pioneer of health and wellness, and an inspiration to many. So after watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, I asked for a juicer so I could finally  become a Pro Juicer 🙂

And I’m thrilled I did!  From fresh carrot juice, apple and orange juice, to juices I can blend into protein shakes, we’re thoroughly enjoying our juicer. 

So, before I give you a glimpse of today’s juice, I wanted to share a snippet form Jack LaLanne’s website that I particularly liked as it gives insight into how this incredible person came to be such a pioneer. How he found his inspiration and dedication for health, wellness and ultimately, happiness.
