Juice journey Volume 2 – the key to a happy stomach

I’m proud to say we’ve consistently juiced for most of the month of May!  My aim is to increase vitality and be focused and vibrant for the Overflow Retreat (and beyond)!  This juice recipe is a variation of one I’ve already tried but this time I added a little twist.  It was so surprisingly yummy! Here are the ingredients:

Peppermint is the key to a happy stomach

-Large bunch of baby kale and spinach,

- 1 dark green cucumber,

- 3 celery stalks,

- 4 pink lady apples,

- 1/2 lemon (optional).

This made enough for hubby, son and me (my son loves this stuff). 

I was having some issues with bloating so I added a few drops of high quality essential peppermint oil to mine.  I guzzled it.  Within 15 minutes the discomfort from my 2 day battle with stomach pain and gas was gone, do you hear me?  Gone!  

Did you know that peppermint oil is one of the number ways to relieve indigestion, gas, bloating and symptoms associated with IBS?  Try it!  Grab your bottle here.  You’ll get almost instant relief.


 Another incredible juice is what I call “Purple Passion.”  

It’s dark, hearty and sweet, thanks to the pink lady apples I use.  Here’s the full recipe to serve 3:

- 5 to 6 carrots 

Purple passion

- 3 or 4 pink lady apples

- 1/2 beet (peeled)

- large handful of baby kale and baby spinach (the sell them together at Sam’s Club triple washed and ready to eat)

Run it all through the juicer.

The color of this drink is so beautiful it’s almost scary!  I was sure it would have a muddy taste, but I was wrong.  It’s sweet, rich and packed with nutrients.  I didn’t add an essential oil to this one but a few drops of lemon essential oil would give it a nice kick and offset some of the sweetness from the apple and carrots.

Juice Journey – Volume 1

the juicer.

May 5, 2014

We got a juicer about 2 weeks ago.  Hubby’s on a mission to drop a few pounds for summer and I want to be optimal for my OverFlow retreat.  so I’m chronicling the journey here.  It should be interesting given that I’m a lover (and maker) of great coffee and all things Puerto Rican when it comes to food.  Nevertheless I’m willing to sacrifice.

So we’ve been juicing consistently.  I didn’t keep good track but I think we juiced 5 days out of 7 last week.  Then on Saturday we watch a documentary called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.”  It’s about a guy who decided to go on a 60 day juice fast to help himself heal from a chronic condition and morbid obesity.

That  movie was the game changer.  It motivated us to take this juice thing seriously, especially since I’ve had my share of health challenges.  My goal is clarity of mind, optimal health, overall well-being, healing in my kidneys, digestive system and a complete elimination of endometriosis.

 So Biggie went out and stockpiled a bunch of fresh fruits and veggies and we are off and running.  To date, our main recipe has been the following:

  • 3-4 pink lady apples
  • 7 carrots
  • a heaping hand full of spinach and chard.

Juice tastes great! We all want more.

Today I added kale to the mix and a little lemon.  The difference is noticeable.  It’s a heartier taste with a little zing thanks to the lemon…but it’s still yummy.

May 6, 2014

We started the day with our usual apple, carrot, kale and spinach juice.  I made 30 ounces so we all got a nice healthy quantity to jump start the day.

green juice.

For dinner, I made a green juice.

  • 1 cucumber (good for skin)
  • 2 celery stalks (good for blood pressure)
  • 1 ½ apples for sweetness
  • a handful of kale
  • 2 swiss chard leaves
  • a handful of spinach
  • 1 lemon.

Boy was this juice green!  It tasted grassy but I know my body appreciated the chlorophyll, nutrients and sun energy.  Next time I’ll add another apple just to knock off some of that earthy taste.

How do I feel?  Less bloated and the tummy is flattening (yay!)

Everyone seems to notice a little more energy, and we are all sleeping restfully.  More updates soon.

Do you juice?  Feel free to share a recipe or two below.
