21 Days of freakin’ awesome juices and smoothies conclusion


I see 3 main bases for healthy juices and smoothies: veggies- which cleanse, fruits- which fortify, and protein- which is regenerative. Typically, I mix them up, but focus on veggies the most, then fruit and occasionally protein. Why? From a nutritional standpoint, protein comes in the form of nut milks, nut butters, coconut – which also means fat – good fat, but still fat. Most of us can use more veggies and fruits in our diet, but rarely need more protein and fat.

I was glad to share so many recipes. When running the cleanses we eat great food, but there are also more recipes than we can try and foods that may not be ideal for a cleanse due to high sugar content, but are still welcome sometimes in a healthy, balanced diet.

The next cleanse will be an EQUILIBRINOX – bringing balance over the time of balance, the fall equinox. Look at my workshops page or for details. It starts September 17, 2012.

  1. I believe avoiding refined foods could be the first step to be able to lose weight. They will taste beneficial, but refined foods have got very little nutritional value, making you take more to have enough strength to get through the day. When you are constantly consuming these foods, transferring to grain and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more strength while consuming less. Interesting blog post.
