Glow Juice

DSC_8576xblog

Summer is in full swing and it is HOT!  Taking care of your skin from the outside is important, but maintaining healthy skin from the inside is where the magic really happens.  This juice is loaded with beta-carotene which when ingested, turns into Vitamin A. Vitamin A ignites a healthy glow that begins on the inside and trust me, it shows!  If you make this juice in the morning you will notice through out the day how dewy and supple your skin looks.  Beta-carotene is a strong antioxidant that reduces damage caused by UV light, pollutants and other environmental hazards that cause aging.   It also protects you from sun sensitivity, it’s a win-win!  Are you ready to unleash the inner God/dess in you?  Here’s the recipe!

ressssss

  • 10 Carrots
  • 4 Green Apples
  • 1 1/2 Lemons
  • 1 Pineapple
  • (1/2 inch of ginger optional)
  1. Place all ingredients in a juicer, strain, and drink immediately!  If you have a slow juicer, you can refrigerant your juice up to 24 hours.  ENJOY!! Xx

 

 

Garden Fresh Summer Salad

I recently traveled to Croatia and WOW was it magnificat!  The island across the way is called Lokrum where we went kayaking.  We were blessed to be in the middle of the Adriatic Sea, among the bluest and clearest water I’ve ever seen…it is truly surreal.  It reminds me of the crystal blue waters seen on Discovery Channel’s Plant Earth.  You can actually see the sunlight rays shining through the water, it is so magical!  I went to bought this produce from a farmers market in Gruz by the harbor.  Everything is freshly picked and organic, no chemicals, pesticides, just good ol’ fashion farming.  Croatia had the BEST tomatoes I’ve ever had and that says a lot coming from a Jersey girl where we are known for our tomatoes ;)

ressssss

  • 1lb Tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1/2 bunch Dandelion Greens (chopped)
  • 1/2 Head Romaine Lettuce (chopped)
  • 1/2 Cucumber (chopped)
  • 1 Cup Green Beans (sliced)

Dressing

  • 1 Lemon (squeezed)
  • 1/2 Avocado (mashed)
  • Handful of cilantro

ENJOY!! Xx

Variety is key!  The nutrient content in foods varies a lot more than most people realize.  Some factors that contribute to variations are how long the food is stored after harvest, the strain, season, and geographic location where they’re grown.  Because of this, it’s important to purchase produce from different organic growers!  Each fruit is […]
