The Healthiest Habit EVER! - Burn Boot Camp


The Healthiest Habit EVER!

July 7, 2012

The healthiest habit anyone could pick up is JUICING on a daily basis!

Adding some juice in your regular diet will change your life! I know what your thinking, “I already drink juice on a regular basis.” Maybe so, but the juice I am talking does not consist of a liter of Juicy Juice or those little poison packets of Capri Sun. I am talking real juices that contain the live enzymes and nourishment that our body needs to be health and perform. With that being said, it is nearly impossible to go to a grocery store (whole food stores included) and purchase a juice that is full life. So where do you get the super juice? Let me tell you…

Juicing is the topic of this blog post. By juicing I mean extracting all the essential vitamins and minerals out of organic produce and getting them to a liquid state. Morgan and I have been juicing a lot, and I mean like a scary amount of concoctions from fruits and vegetables that have no business being blended together. This might sound crazy but juiced broccoli, carrots, apples, mango, spinach, kale, and ginger together the other day…sounds gross right? Well, it was the most AMAZING thing I have ever tasted! I could literally feel the live enzymes going to work in my body. I posted the lime green mixture on the Burn Boot Camp Facebook Page and all of the BBC moms told me I was crazy! Long story short…juicing is the healthiest habit anyone can adopt!

Why is Juicing So Important?

Vegetables were not meant to be heated up. Did you know that when you apply heat to any food you lose over 50% of the nutrients the food in comprised of? When we cook chicken breast over 50% of the protein in the meat is destroyed from the heat. When vegetables are exposed to heat the nutritional value (including live enzymes) are cut in half.

Another reason juicing is crucial in your diet is because we will NEVER maximize the speed of our metabolism by eating cooked and processed foods. These foods are not meant to go into our body, period. When they are ingested the body will attack these foods as if they are a foreign attack using all your white blood cells (body’s immunity cell) thus lowering your white blood cell count! If you can convert your diet to consist of 51% raw whole foods you body will maximize metabolism and not trigger a white blood cell invasion. When our white blood cells don’t have to tend to our food they can be defending bacteria and fungus in the body like they are supposed to!

Not Convinced Yet?

If that is not enough reason to start juicing, how about this…certain regiments of juicing have literally cured cancer! There are several  medical journals from the 1950’s proving that raw juicing is very strongly linked to curing several types of cancer. Why haven’t there been any studies since the 1950’s stating this? Believe it or not, there have been thousands of cases recorded but the United States Government banned these studies from being publish! That is a topic for another day, but if you want to learn all about raw foods and their link to disease prevention I highly recommend you watch the documentary, Food Matters.

So go out and get a juicer and start living a healthier life today!

Super Juice Recipe (My Go-To)

Recipe #1

  • 1 Organic Kale Bunch  (Substitute: Spinach Bunch or one whole Cabbage)
  • 1 Organic Collard Greens Bunch  (Substitute: Dandelion Greens Bunch)
  • 1 Organic Celery Bunch
  • 1 Organic Cucumber
  • 6 Organic Carrots
  • 2 Organic Tomatoes
  • 2 Organic Lemons
  • 1 Organic Apple  (Substitute: Pear or Mango)
  • 1 Handful of Organic Blueberries (Substitute: Blackberries)

Single Serving of Super Juice

  • ¼ Kale Bunch
  • ¼ Collard Greens Bunch
  • 2 Celery stalks
  • ¼ of a Cucumber
  • 1 to 2 carrots
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 Lemon
  • ½ Apple
  • Small Handful of Blueberries

Detoxifying and Cleansing Recipes

Recipe # 2:

  • 4 carrots, tops and tails chopped off
  • 4 stalks celery
  • A handful of parsley including the stems
  • 1 small organic zucchini chopped but not peeled
  • 1/2 of a beet
  • 1/4 grapefruit peeled

Recipe # 3:

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • A bunch each of green kale, spinach, collard greens and water cress
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 3 carrots

Recipe #4:

  • 2 organic peaches, cut in half, seeds removed
  • 1 organic apple
  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, raspberries, and/or blackberries

For these recipes you will need to use a juicer. If you don’t have a juicer, you can use a plastic citrus juicer for the citrus items and blend the remaining items in a blender. After you’ve blended all of your fruits and vegetables, strain them with a strainer or using cheesecloth to get as much of the juice out as possible. You may need to double the recipe in order to extract more juice. Here are a couple of easy recipes that don’t require a juicer:

Recipe #5:
1 large pink grapefruit
1 large orange
3 tomatoes
1 cucumber

After juicing the grapefruit and orange with a citrus juicer, blend the tomatoes and cucumber in a blender and strain the juice. Add the tomato and cucumber juice to the citrus juices and stir well.

Recipe #6:

  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • 1 beet, peeled with the tops and tails chopped off and cut into small pieces
  • 1 bunch of spinach or kale
  • 1/2 of a bell pepper
  • 1/2 small lemon
  • 1/4 cup of water

Blend the tomatoes in a blender, strain the juice, place in a large glass or container and set aside. Blend (with a 1/8 cup of water) or use a food processor to “juice” the beet, strain it and add it to the tomato juice. Blend the spinach, bell pepper and lemon with the remaining water. When well blended, strain the juice with a strainer or cheesecloth and add it to the tomato and beet juice mixture. You may add a dash of cayenne pepper for flavor.
