The Squeeze

Simply RAWnchy Detox Juices, Smoothies, Clean Eats & Treats

image

Warning- if you get offended easily, stop reading. If you have a sense of humor and want to get your skin glowing and feel fab- then grab a glass and juice on!

This is not a diet book it’s about loving and worshiping your sexy self. Karliin Brooks explains why you should go raw, and you don’t need a fancy dehydrator, you can turn your oven into one. Why detox? There’s so many perks- you know taking care of ones’ butt leads to a clear gut. Yes, there’s even a cute little poop chart so you know what poop-fection should look like. Wondering what type of juicer to buy? No problems Karliin has you covered, she explains the types of juicers, and includes a tool check list and a cleanse prep talk.

There’s 3 levels to her juicing guides. Level 1- Basic Bitch, Level 2-Give it to me harder, Level 3- Baddest Bitch. All levels come with a sample menu, side effects (like glowing skin, sex kitten to I gotta pee). Karliin acknowledges that one size doesn’t fit all- so go ahead you sexy Momma and play around, have fun.

From the time I opened the book and starting reading the titles, I knew anyone could go on a cleanse or start juicing even if it’s only a juice a day. With the names like blue balls, shake your peaches, I have a heart on, Kale the pain away and so on who couldn’t have fun? Not only is this book amusing- but it’s full of nutrients that you wouldn’t be able to just eat. No one eats 1/2 a large watermelon and lime in one sitting, but one can easily drink it, even if they didn’t add vodka 😉

Karliin has Beverages, Tonics/elixirs etc, Mylks, Smoothies and Shakes, Lunch and Dinner, Snaxx and treats for you to feast on. I’m going to share one of my favorite juices with you. Ok it’s really a smoothie (if you have a juicer I recommend you try juicing it as well). The lime takes the watermelon to the next level. They are perfect lovers, don’t try to separate them. The watermelon will taste like tears. Seriously.

Watermelon Mojito*

What can be better? This drink is easy, almost a little too easy. But don’t get suspicious…. It’s easy because it includes the best ingredients that momma nature has to offer.

1-2 servings

4 cups watermelon, frozen will give you a creamier texture

8 fresh mint leaves

1 lime juiced.

Blend all ingredients together until smooth and delicious. If using fresh watermelon, pulse in a handful of ice at the very end to ensure ultimate refresh-ability.

You wanted juice? You’ve Got Juice

The freshest refreshing juice in the world…….. Somer McCowan’s, juices from The Abundance Diet. I can’t give out the recipes, but I’m sure you can figure out what’s in them by the name of recipe.

Australian  carrot, apple, celery refresher

This is close to the juice I make the most, only this one doesn’t have lemons in it- but it has celery. Yummy!!! I used Granny Smith apples bc I like my juices on the tart side.

Chia Limeade

Someone commented that this looks like a snow globe- I think I’ll rename it to chia globe! Normally I see recipes calling for 5 lemons and hardly anything else. I was shocked at how little juice was called for this and how  it packs a great flavour. Those other people who call for 6 lemons WRONG!!! Do not listen. This recipe doesn’t call for lemons, but limes (same thing, I’m trying it with lemon next time).

This drink would be perfect when you are having lunch with the girlfriends, or if you drink- add a shot of vodka (or two) for a girls night in!

Be sure to check out Somer’s book The Abundance Diet for the recipes to these and more……

It’s the middle of winter here, but I am dreaming of summer. Which makes me wonder, what are your fav juices to bring  on your picnics?

 

 

 

Juicy release(s)

Juice Guru Steve and Julie Prussack have a book coming out called Juice Guru: Transform Your Life with One Juice a Day*. This book is scheduled to hit the shelves in March. I’ve looked around his site and I noticed he says you can juice strawberries. Still for the life of me, I don’t see how this is possible. The recipes on his site do look really good, and would keep you happy during a re-boot.

I love this quote on Chapters.ca “WARNING: side effects include clarity of mind, weight loss, self-appreciation, and the desire to wink at innocent bystanders.” That’s how they are describing The Squeeze: Simply RAWnchy Detox Juices, Smoothies, Clean Eats & Treats* by KARLIIN BROOKS. The cover of the book is pretty flirty itself, this is going to be out in Jan. Only a few more days. If the warning doesn’t motivate you to stay on track with your cleanse, re-boot, I really don’t know what will. Karliin is a life long vegan who lives and plays in New York. You can read more about her by visiting her site, or click here for locations.

Have you heard about any good juicing books that are scheduled for release in 2016?

Festive Juices

Below are some wonderful ideas for those who are juicing through the Christmas season. Even though I’m not on a re-boot right now, I know so many of you are and are worried about staying on track, while everyone’s eating all the things. You can drink all the things.

Try Joe’s Festive green and gold juice. The Aussie Green and Aussie Gold juice are sure to be a favorite. The Aussie Gold is a nice treat. All you can taste is the pineapple. Check out his Seasonal Winter Juice. The ingredients are making me hungry!!!

All about Juicing has a few tasty recipes. The Green Christmas juice looks good, however, I would add more veggies to it like : kale or spinach and possibly a cucumber.

The Food Babe has Ravishing Red juice That sounds amazing, apples, beets, cucumber plus other veggies, and that color? Looks refreshing!

Kris Carr’s Make Juice not war green drink is a nice smooth drink and calls for pea sprouts. You have time to sprout some if you start today 🙂 This is something I’m going to make Christmas morning. It’s also a nice shade of green! Also check out her Green Goddess juice– yummy.

Juice Recipes for your health has a Radiant Red juice. It’s kinda like The Food Babe’s but different and looks like you should make this too. Can you have too many red juices?

Gourmande In The Kitchen has a beautiful deep red juice. Ravishingly Red Juice I’m pretty sure it’s the pomegranate’s that add that little sexy sexy.

The Juice Master Jason has the Anti-oxidant King juice that looks good. I have no idea how one would juice a banana, but I guess you put it in a blender along with berries then mix everything together? Well, that’s how I would do it. Let me know if you have been able to juice a banana.

Stay strong this holiday season. If you haven’t already maybe turn to face book for some support. I suggest this one: Reboot With Joe Cross. (If the link doesn’t work for you then search for Reboot With Joe Cross: Juicing And Changing Your Life in fb’s search bar) This isn’t actually Joe’s fb support group, but its an excellent support group all the same. Members seem to be all on the same page, and admins are great- if you want to spam, troll or just don’t want to play nicely, you will be sure to find yourself deleted and blocked from the group. I joined this group when I did my first reboot back in Aug, and the amount of love I got was amazing. I felt like I could ask anything juice related and I got the answers I needed! I never felt like I failed because I had a smoothie one night, or because I didn’t follow the 80/20 rule of thumb.

How many of you are juicing through Christmas? I apologize for the food porn I will be posting. Just book mark those pages for when your reboot, fasting, is over 🙂

Juicy Luv to you all!
