Blueberry Cabbage Juice

13 01 2014

I found a number of juicing recipes while flipping through an old Eating Well magazine. While I stole my mother’s juicer a while ago, I often don’t get around to making juice (despite¬†how amazing it tastes and makes me feel). Inspired by these recipes, I decided to try one out, and I’m so glad I did. Ok, it did taste a bit odd, but was very refreshing to taste a new flavor, plus it felt amazing! Please, if you have a juicer consider giving this recipe a try. Note, if you are using frozen blueberries thaw them out first!



Papaya Smoothie

15 11 2012

The papaya fruit, also known as the paw paw, is one of my favorite tropical fruits. Often overlooked for the more often used mango, lets not forget this tasty and cooling fruit which also happens to be a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate. Papayas seeds are anti-parasitic, the meat can be used in home made face cleansing recipes, and if you live in Australia you are no doubt familiar with paw paw first aid cream. Today however lets keep it simple and use this fruit to make a smoothie for a cooling summer drink.

1 banana

5 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Enjoy!

Breakfast Shake

My friend Jamie Tilley came up with this drink recipe and now drink this every time I get the chance. It is a great get up and go drink, complete with protein, fiber, amino acids, and omega 3’s! You can substitute sunbutter for the hempseed powder to give a stronger nutty/creamy flavor. Sunbutter is made from sunflower seeds;) I’ve started adding 1/4 cup local blackberries when I find them and it is most excellent;)

serves 1


1 banana

1/4 cup strawberries cut in half

1/4 cup blueberries

1 T maple syrup

Master Cleanse Tea

11 06 2008


1 cup water
2 tbsp lemon juice (or just throw some lemon slices in;)
2 tbsp grade b maple syrup (easier to digest)
pinch of cayenne pepper

This is a fasting drink, and is supposed to have all the nutrients you need for quite a few days. I like to drink it as a detox tea in the morning or a pick me cold drink in the afternoon. Ideally, the water should be room temperature and distilled.

Banana Shake

I love this very simple recipe from my nephew in law, Julian Castaneda.


In blender mix bananas, rice milk, and vanilla extract (optional) to taste.

I recently made it with vanilla So Delicious coconut milk and bananas and it was also delicious. It was… delicious.
