The Juice Is Ideal For:

  • Fighting inflammation
  • Improved digestion
  • Beating belly bloat

Lighten Up & Loosen Up

Digestion

Thanks to a healthy dose of ginger root and a touch of celery, this juice is fantastic for digestion, which equates to reduced belly bloating and regular elimination.

Inflammation

This juice also boasts a bounty of anti-inflammatory benefits, due to the powerful effects of turmeric root, and the curcumin it contains. Pineapple is another commonly overlooked anti-inflammatory that contains a potent enzyme called bromelain, that's great for muscle recovery and repair

Detoxification

Another overlooked fruit with powerful benefits when juiced in the Granny Smith apple. This variety is desirable for juicing, because the more tart the apple, the more malic acid it contains. Malic acid stimulates the metabolism and also helps to detox heavy metals from the body.

Immunity

On top of the anti-bloating and anti-inflammatory benefits, this Liquid Gold juice also contains a whopping dose of Vitamin C to keep your skin and immune system in check. Thank you, citrus!

raw vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, low-fat, energizing + rainbow-licious

time: 10 min // serves: 1-2

ingredients:

  • 8-12oz fresh-squeezed orange juice (about 5 oranges)
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 2-3 cups pineapple
  • 1 large knob of ginger
  • 1 chunk of turmeric

method:

  1. Juice oranges using a citrus juicer and set aside.
  2. Cut other ingredients into chunks and place into juicer. Start with ginger and turmeric root so the juicier ingredients will flush them through completely.
  3. Pour juice from juicer plus orange juice into fine mesh strainer to eliminate any extra pulp, for an extra smooth and sweet finished product.

notes:

  • If you do not own a juicer, you can also blend all ingredients and strain with a fine mesh strainer.
  • Will last in refrigerator for 24-48 hours in an airtight container, but tastiest and most nutritious when fresh.

Juicing 101

    The Juice Is Worth The Squeeze

    If you're looking to amp up your health, juicing is a great way to go! There are tons of juicers of varying price ranges on the market, but the quality of your juicer directly impacts the quality and nutritional value of your juice!

    An investment in quality is an investment in your health and happiness!

    My new Omega NC900 has definitely made the juice worth the squeeze! This super quiet motor, slow masticating, dual-stage extraction juicer comes with adjustable settings depending on what type of recipe you're making. Due to these features, you'll get maximum extraction, it will not damage your produce via grinding and gnashing, and it reduces oxidation, significantly! All of this jargon essentially means you'll get more juice for your squeeze, and it'll be less bubbly, more nutrient dense, and more flavorful!

    You can use this juicer for:

    • Fruits & veggies
    • Citrus
    • Greens
    • Wheatgrass
    • Nut milks
    • Nut butters
    • Pastas
    • and even Baby food! (good news for me)! ;)

    Be sure to look into my 3-Day Juice Feast Detox Guide--it's the perfect way to cleanse, reset, and re-energize your body!

    Saturday Morning Fruit Haul: Benefits Of Mono Meals + Buying In Bulk

    Eat, Food + NutritionErin StanczykComment

    Simplify

    What if your next meal was a recipe that only required one ingredient? 


    This is a brief introduction to eating mono meals and saving money at the grocery store. A mono meal is a meal consisting of just one food, typically a fruit or vegetable, in its raw, natural state. Mono meals are popular among raw foodists and vegans, but are also a fantastic way for anyone to re-train the brain to have a healthier relationship with food. When we eat only one food, our sensory organs are not overloaded with varying tastes, textures, and smells, and we are therefore, better able to determine when we're still hungry, and when we're completely satisfied. This can be a helpful tool for overcoming eating disorders and emotional eating.

    Erin Stanczyk | Lifestyle Design | eatmoverest | SATURDAY MORNING FRUIT HAUL: BENEFITS OF MONO MEALS + BUYING IN BULK
    Think to yourself, If I'm not hungry enough to eat an apple, then I'm not really hungry. If you're hungry enough to eat an apple, chances are, you're hungry enough to eat more than one apple--so why not?

    Mother Nature

    Looking back to the way things used to be, imagine you're all alone, wandering and starving. All of a sudden, you come upon a big peach tree. You pluck a juicy, ripe peach from the tree, and savor every perfect bite--no condiments, no cooking, no processing, just enjoying the fruit as Mother Nature intended. Chances are, you'd still be hungry after one, and go for another. Being that you might not know when or where you'd find food again, I'd venture to guess that you would eat as many peaches as you cared for until you felt satiated! That's all there is to mono meals--it's that simple!

    But regardless of any theory of how things "used to be," mono meals can benefit our bodies and minds in a number of ways. 

    Fruit As Fuel

    Our bodies require carbohydrates in order to stay energized--the important part is which type of carbs we're consuming. Fruit is an unrefined carbohydrate that's chock-full of fiber, which helps to slow the release of sugar into the bloodstream and avoid spikes and crashes. 

    Not only is fruit a great source of carbohydrate energy, it is also packed with vital nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes that help our bodies to thrive. Grab a banana or grab an orange (or any fruit of your choice for that matter!), enjoy each and every sweet, juicy bite, and eat until you feel completely satiated!

    *Disclaimer: I am not 100% raw vegan, but I am a total raw food lover and eat about 90% raw foods. I am simply sharing my experience with you because I love how I feel and wish the same for you!


    7 Reasons To Try A Mono Meal:

    Erin Stanczyk | Lifestyle Design | eatmoverest | SATURDAY MORNING FRUIT HAUL: BENEFITS OF MONO MEALS + BUYING IN BULK
    1. No recipes required.
    2. It's natural.
    3. Eliminates decision fatigue.
    4. Re-trains your brain to know when you're full.
    5. Allows you to enjoy the simplicity of just one food--the taste, texture, smell, etc.
    6. Easier on your digestion and requires less energy.
    7. Can be applied for an extended period of time as a detox or cleanse.

    Try It Out

    • Eat as much melon as you care for, for breakfast.
    • Make a banana smoothie.
    • Eat only mangos for lunch.
    • Drink fresh-squeezed orange juice for an entire day.
    • Make Banana "Nice Cream" as seen on the Blog & YouTube!

    A Saturday Morning Plus 105 Valencia Oranges Means It's Time For Fresh-Squeezed OJ

    On a recent trip to our local co-op, Open Harvest, Dusty and I decided we would place an order for an entire case of organic bananas and Valencia oranges, (which we got a 15% discount on for buying in bulk)! You might be asking, why would anyone buy 80lbs of fruit?! 

     We Love Fruit! We eat a lot, so we need a lot!

    Erin Stanczyk | Lifestyle Design | eatmoverest | SATURDAY MORNING FRUIT HAUL: BENEFITS OF MONO MEALS + BUYING IN BULK

    After counting out a little over 100 Valencia oranges and 100 bananas, we laid out of bananas so they could get ripe and speckled for smoothies and Banana Nice Cream. Bananas are easy to buy in bulk because they can be easily frozen and stored for months in the freezer, and make the perfect base for any smoothie. Citrus is in season, so oranges were a good bet, as well. Especially during cold and flu season, nothing beats a tall glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice! Oranges keep for quite some time in the refrigerator, so they're also easy to buy in bulk.

    It has now been about 2 weeks since we got our bananas and oranges, and it feels amazing to be able to enjoy them in abundance! Our frozen bananas are stored away, and we're nearing the end of our orange supply--no fruit has rotted or gone to waste! 

    Don't stress about depriving yourself, simply crowd out the bad foods with more of the good!

    After using my good, old-fashioned citrus juicer for about 10 oranges, I decided it was time to upgrade! I found this awesome, Cuisinart electric citrus juicer at Bed Bath & Beyond for only $29.95 and I can't recommend it enough if you do a lot of citrus-juicing! #lifesaver!

    Cheers to A Simpler Way Of Life

    Don't be afraid to experiment with food--especially fruits and veggies! There are so many complex and restrictive diets, too many processed junk foods, difficult recipes, and time-consuming cooked meals to bother with, and sometimes, our bodies and minds just need something simple!

    Go grab your favorite fruit and enjoy each and every juice bite!
