I’ve been loving my new Omega vsj843r Low-Speed Juicer! 🍊🍍🌿🍎🍐🍇🍏
The consistency of juice is perfect and so smooth and the clean up is super easy! It’s important to get a low-speed juicer as it ensures that the juice doesn’t oxidize and heat up where vital enzymes and nutrients can be lost. Juicing has been such a huge tool in my healing process as it’s super important to get lots of hydration from the alkaline goodness that are in plants! Juicing allows healing from the inside out because you’re getting a great dose of dense nutrients to help hydrate the old waste in the body, cleanse and heal! I notice when I juice more consistently and get a good quantity in daily, my skin feels much softer and hydrated. I love to do celery juice first thing in the morning, then move on to a fruit juice like my current fave, organic Fuji apple, and lime!
💚I love having fresh herbs on hand in my kitchen, and this is the best way I’ve found in storing them! 🌿🌱🍃☘️
Simply cut off the bottoms, place in a glass cup with water and keep it in the front of the fridge. If the herbs go too far to the back they can get too cold…I’ve had herbs get accidentally pushed back too far and then when I looked for them the leaves were frozen! 😟 This simple method can keep your herbs fresh for weeks, just keep replenishing the water very few days 👍🏽. I have cilantro pictured here and I love to use it in my guacamole, salads, curries, green juices (check out the juicer I love to use HERE), soups and cooking where cilantro is called in the recipe.
Cilantro is a heavy metal detoxifier, rich in antioxidants, and has vitamins such as: vitamin A, C, K & B vitamins and minerals such as: potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, and magnesium! I also love to use parsley, mint, basil, thyme, oregano and more! What are your fave herbs to use?
This blend is soooo delicious y’all! So I freshly pressed 4 oranges (got about 16 oz) and in my vitamix I blended up half a small beet with a knob of ginger and turmeric with a little bit of water, strained it, and then added to my 🍊orange juice! I definitely saved the pulp from the beet blend and guess what…I added it to my smoothie later on of wild blueberries x dark red cherries🍒 x bananas🍌 and water….OMG it tastes amazing! Don’t waste that goodness, just throw it in a smoothie! Super rich in anti-inflammatory properties and dense nutrition!

😍 DID YOU KNOW…”The Curcumin in Turmeric is the component that contains phytochemical compounds that calm the liver, resulting in fewer spasms. It helps to prepare & purify the blood before it enters the liver so that blood arrives with fewer toxins. Its healing properties ignite healing heat in a stagnant, sluggish liver resulting in less disease” info from The Medical Medium
My good friend Thomas was kind enough to allow me to do a blog post on his juice fast experience. I became friends with him a few years ago when we “met” online through a Topical Steroid Withdrawal forum. We’ve kept in contact ever since and have encouraged one another through the healing process over the years. I actually got the chance to meet him in person this past summer, and it was such a joy! We got a chance to hang out, eat ripe mangos (freshly picked that day might I add!) and cook some yummy vegan curry together! He was the first person I officially met from the online world and I look forward to hanging out with him in the future again! He has been working diligently and consistently in healing his skin, and I’m so proud of his success. I love that he’s not one to shy away from experimenting with different healing methods and I truly commend his efforts. It can take a bit of willpower to do a fast, but he jumps in full on and always keeps his focus on ways that he can help his skin repair, this is what drives him to stay dedicated. This is the same mentality that I recommend to those who reach out to me needing coaching support…to always remember that it’s not a sprint but a marathon, but all of the great things that you do for your body will add up as they are all cumulative. You have to take responsibility for your health, and not make it a quick fix, but a lifestyle…just incorporating healthier foods, making sure you sleep well, stay stress-free and get enough exercise…they all go together to aid in healing.
Juicingcan help the skin as it allows the body to receive a concentrated amount of nutrients that are super easy to digest (because it is juiced, so no fiber is intact) which allows the body to spend less energy on digesting food, and more energy on healing the illness. Raw fruits and veggies are packed with enzymes (no cooking is involved), dense nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and tons of oxygen for the cells. I highly recommend if not doing a juice fast every once in awhile, at least incorporating a green juice into your daily meals. I like to have my green drink as the last thing that I consume at night as it gives me a great dose of anti-inflammatory nutrients for healing at night, and it gives me great eliminations in the morning (yea, I know TMI haha). I don’t have a juicer, but I just blend it with my high speed blender. If I wanted it like a juiced consistency then I could just put the liquid through a strainer. I switch it up, but my go-to green drink is usually kale, cilantro & parsley (great for heavy metal detox), spinach, romaine, ginger, apple for sweetness, a squirt of lime or lemon (vitamin c helps you absorb the nutrients better), celery and cucumber.
