Jen’s Kitchen Sink Juice!

Fresh juice! I love to make it once a week! Turmeric is supposed to be lovely for joints, pineapple for inflammation, and celery for skin. Are they, though?! Since we’re not eating them in a vacuum, and have lots of other things going on in our lives, who knows?! I’m sure your mileage may vary, but when someone complains about an elbow or knee, they ask me to make turmeric juice and it stops. Either way, getting lots of extra produce in our diets is always a great idea.

I make a lot of juice hoping for three day’s worth. With two teenagers who want lovely skin in the house, it rarely makes it past two days.

Jen’s Feel oh-so-good Juice with Fresh Turmeric

My husband and I run jog 5 miles 3 times a week and do kettlebells, bike, or yoga another 3. I remember reading years ago (probably Dr. Weil) that pineapple, garlic, and ginger were great for inflammation and joint health. Okay! Those are easy ingredients to keep in the rotation.

They’re all tasty, and I’ve felt fine up til now, so I’m keeping them in. 😉 About a year ago my elbow started hurting. I tried to ignore it. But it continued hurting. Badly. Was it the kettlebells? Was it that I held my water bottle in the same hand every time I run? Was it because I’m forty-something and time is really unkind? Who knows?!

Ziggy Marley’s Beet Quencher recipe, a cookbook review of Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook, and Guerrero family game night. Nice.

61qoOfJ67fLI’ve always been more of a smoothie fan, and my juicer never got much love. Smoothies leave you feeling nice and full. Then I found Ziggy Marley’s cookbook, Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook: Delicious Meals Made With Whole, Organic Ingredients from the Marley Kitchen, and everything was delicious and super nutritious, so I decided to give his juices a try. I loved them! They’re filled with interesting flavor. Fantastic. When you want a nice vitamin punch, there’s nothing like juice. They leave me feeling extra alive. It’s not a juice book. There are only 9 juice recipes in it, but they’re special.

A huge thanks to Akashic Books for letting me share the recipe for a Beet Quencher with you. I’ll get back to my review of the book and a hilarious family game night idea after the recipe….

If you love it, please come find me again! 😀
