Even Jennifer Lopez has a health coach!

Jennifer Lopez drinks green juice three times a day.

The ‘On the Floor’ hitmaker – who has five-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony – is determined to be in great shape when she returns to the ‘American Idol’ judging panel in January and has been working with a health coach to overhaul her eating habits.

A source said: ”She hired a health coach and they worked on using foods and fresh vegetable juices to cleanse her organs.

”She has green juice with kale, parsley and wheat grass three times a day. She’s been eating quinoa and has cut out wheat and all things processed.”

Although Jennifer initially found her new diet plan tough, she has already lost 15lbs and is delighted with the results.

The source added to the National Enquirer magazine: ”She only eats meat that is organic, free range and grass fed and for the first month she cut out all animal products. It wasn’t easy, but she says it’s the best thing she’s done for her body.”

My New Superfood: Rainbow Juice!

ImageImageImageImage

Hello from California!

I’m busy enjoying the warm weather in sunny California and juicing up a storm!  I made this concoction a few days ago and dubbed it “Rainbow Juice”– because it’s made from all the colors of the rainbow.

I found that Rainbow Juice was not only more tasty than I could have ever imagined, but that I was also FULL OF ENERGY after I drank it!  My achy knees didn’t even bother me that evening!

Now, do you know how important the color of fruits and vegetables are to your health?

They are vital!!

Yellow and orange fruits and vegetables are good for your digestive system. They contain carotenoids and bioflavonoids which act as antioxidants.  They also help keep your skin looking healthy, heal wounds and make your bones strong.

Red fruits and vegetables are beneficial for your heart and fight cancer because their red color comes from lycopene. Lycopene is a pigment that acts as an antioxidant and protects your body from free radicals and heart disease.

Green fruits and vegetables contain lutein which keep your eyes healthy. Green foods also have potassium, folate, and vitamins C and K.

Purple foods have antioxidants and flavonoids which protect your heart and lengthen your life.  They also improve your memory and assist in preventing cancer risks.

Eating and drinking a wide variety of colored fruits, fruit juices and vegetables will maximize your health–similar to the way a superfood would.  Therefore Rainbow Juice is indeed a superfood!

Happy Juicing!

My Health-Driven Science Experiments!

ImageImageImageImage

Hello everyone! 

I’m down in California at the moment having a date with some sunshine!   I absolutely love staying with my brother, Ryan in the SF bay area.  His whole kitchen is stocked top to bottom with healthy nuts, seeds, fruits, veggies, grains, sauces etc.!!  It’s a feast for the eyes and the belly!

Lucky for me, Ryan is also a beer connoisseur; and loves to ferment vegetables, sauerkraut and Kimchi.  Due to his passion for science, technology, and health, he’s got all of the wacky tools I would ever need to make the best food ever!

Tonight my experimentation was in full force– I made an Apple Ginger Sauerkraut, Ginger Ale, and Rainbow Juice!!  (The Sauerkraut and Ginger Ale are shown above–more about the Rainbow juice later!)

I can’t wait to taste the sauerkraut in a few days!  It’s busy fermenting at the moment in the pantry.  The ginger ale and rainbow juice were so delicious–I had to tell myself to stop drinking them!

So if you see me skipping down the street tomorrow–you know why.  I’m full of the best stuff on earth!

To your health and happiness!

P.S.  A great resource on fermentation is the book “Wild Fermentation” by Sandor Katz!
