During the holiday season, we are surrounded by decadent treats that make resistance futile, so we completely forget about our diet and thoroughly indulge. The consequences of our lack of control are several extra pounds compounded by feelings of guilt. Are you in this not so happy place? It’s no wonder we start the year off with thoughts of improving our health and reducing our weight. An excellent way to focus on both is by kicking off 2016 with fresh and nutrient dense juices and smoothies.
My newest book, Crazy Sexy Juice will show us how to revitalize, remineralize, and reboot our bodies, especially after ingesting weeks of heavy, high fat and high sugar sludge. Our bodies need to recover from this abuse and absorb high vibe foods that will nourish each and every one of our cells.

I found the ‘Spotlight on Ingredients’ beneficial. They share which are the most nutrient dense greens, fruits and veggies. Each ingredient has highlighted info on how to select, prepare and store them, their to nutrients, and their health benefits. The FAQ’s section addresses questions like juicing and blending for babies and diabetics, to goitrogen’s and oxalates, to repurposing your pulp.
There are over 100 tasty and refreshing Joyful Recipes to make. The book is loaded with hi-res images that will tempt you to go for it and try out the recipe. Quite a few of the recipes have a specific purpose, Hello Hydration, Fatigue Fighter, Morning Jolt, and Body Builder need no explanation. The back of the book shows you how to make your own milks from various nuts. I happen to love almond milk, but I was introduced to some new recipes like Turmeric Milk and Green Milk.
The last section offers a three day cleanse which I thought was impressive. You are not deprived by any means! Each recipe will pump your body will the vital nutrients it needs to rebalance and sustain homeostasis. I love this book and can’t think of a better way to welcome in 2016.
