For the past year, I’ve made juice a regular part of my life. I’ve always considered the possibility of sharing my love of the juice lifestyle with others but I wasn’t quite sure of the logistics: time, expenses, storage, delivery, packaging, etc. It’s almost impossible for me to think of starting a new venture while I’m working on NextChapter. But this weekend, I had some spare time and decided to test the idea.
Juice by Janine is 100% all natural juice, prepared fresh in Columbus Ohio and frozen immediately in air tight jars to seal in all of the delicious nutrients!
What is all this about?
I’m not a doctor and don’t know everything about nutrition but I have been researching the benefits drinking juice for quite some time and find it to be one of the best things you can do for your body.
After buying a juicer, I began juicing each type of fruit and vegetable individually and creating concoctions in my kitchen until I mixed the most perfect recipes. Since then, I would juice a jar every morning for breakfast or lunch and found that 20oz of juice is just the right amount for a meal replacement. All of my friends began asking for recipes and wanted to know more, so I decided to make a round of juice for five select people that I knew would be easy to deliver. I packaged all of the jars with a note and sent them out into the world today excited to hear feedback.
The juice package that I made this weekend included four juices to be enjoyed as meal replacements:
Day 1: Breakfast – Lean Greens
Ingredients: Kale, Spinach, Cucumber, Celery, Apple, Pear, Lemon
Benefits: Kale is such a powerful ingredient. It is rich in vitamins and minerals like calcium which promotes strong bones and potassium which helps lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart diseases or stroke. Kale is high in fiber and detoxifies your whole body. Cucumber is a great tonic for encouraging healthy skin, hair and nails. It is also said to treat arthritis. Celery contains coumarin which helps with migraines and lowers blood pressure. Spinach is one of the most nutrient-packed foods and has more iron than any other vegetable.
Day 2: Lunch – Italian Picnic
Ingredients: Tomato, Carrot, Cucumber, Red Bell Pepper, Garlic, Apple
Benefits: Tomato has a magic ingredient called lycopene. It’s a powerful antioxidant that is said to have the nickname “the Cancer Destroyer”. Unfortunately, the body cannot create lycopene so we have to get it from fruits and vegetables. Garlic has been used to strengthen the immune system, lowers blow sugar and eliminate lead in the body. And finally, Bell Pepper juice is rich with Vitamin B6 and B9, both help control blood levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Day 3: Breakfast – Perfect Sunrise
Ingredients: Carrots, Orange, Mango
Benefits: Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, B and beta -carotenes (anti-oxidants). Carrots are said to help prevent cancer, helps maintain vision and promotes weightloss. Just to be on the safe side, don’t eat TOO many carrots every day because a recent study at OSU shows that having excess amounts of beta-carotene every day could be bad for you. (disclaimer)
Day 4: Lunch – Beauty and the Beet
Ingredients: Beet, Carrots, Apple, Lemon, Ginger
Benefits: Beet juice is an excellent purifier and cleanser of the blood. It is said to promote brain health in older adults by increasing blood flow to the brain. It is also been found that beet juice is high in folate and stimulates the production and repair of cells, which helps protect against premature aging and wrinkles!
How can I get my hands on this amazing juice?
Glad you asked! Over the weekend, I made roughly 90 jars and boy was that a job! I’m still considering the weekly jar package price and will know a little more by the end of the week. If the demand is high, then it makes sense!
