Raw energy juices: Green with Envy and Inner Cleanse

I’ve turned more to having home-made juice of a morning now. I’ve been learning lots about the health benefits and have been enjoying the raw hit of pure energy I have got after drinking one.

I’ve learned that its best to have a juice leaning more on the vegetable side than fruit, but the fruit gives it that nice balance of flavours. It is also best to make your juices as green as you possible can.

One of my favourite cafes up here on the Sunshine Coast is Raw Energy. We used to visit it quite frequently when we lived here. I was not going to pass by it unnoticed on our stay here in Mooloolaba. Come 7am I was down at the counter ordering my morning juice.

At first I was hesitant in ordering one that was so green, but I took the plunge to get over my phobia and ordered the Green with Envy.

It was actually pretty good and way better than the beetroot juice I was forced to drink each morning with the Tracy Anderson workout program.

The green with envy and apple, pear, celery, broccoli, cucumber spinach and was heavy on the celery flavour but really yummy.

The next day, after waking up feeling a little fluey, I decided to go with the inner cleanser: carrot, celery, apple and parsley. I didn’t like this one as much as the Green with Envy as it was a little to celery strong.

But I did feel cleansed after it and the sinuses a little clearer.

    Have you seen “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”? You’d really enjoy it, I bet! I just watched it and I’m super keen to step up my juicing and the amount of green vegetables I’m eating. Need to cut out so many unnecessary grains and dairy (even though that is SO what I love)!

      I am really making an effort to do that too and am finding it extremely difficult- especially the wheat part. I don’t even really like it that much but so many foods have it in there. I must watch that movie. Thanks for sharing it. I’m going to be sharing more juice recipes and other websites I’m discovering with good resources.

      I first watched “Hungry for Change” which led me to “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead”. I thought they were great and inspired me. I had one question haunting me even though i bought a juicer and started the process the with best self discipline. Where is the protein? How can this man survive 60 days without any protein. I could be wrong, but i believe he was getting a protein source but I did not remember seeing him get any protein in the video or even mention it. I proceeded with the plan but after 3 weeks i was having leg pains. I immediately started eating 1 spoonful of peanut butter each day and the pains went away. I lost a total of 25lbs and then i took a break. I have kept the weight off by changing my eating lifestyle (Chris Karr). I plan on getting back on the juicing plan (with my peanut butter) to loose the last 25lbs. I can’t wait to get back to my healthy weight!

        I don’t know too much about those movies, but perhaps he put some kind of protein powder in his juice? I would continue to do the juicing but maybe make one meal a day have protein. You’re on the right path with the peanut butter. I think the best thing is to have a complete eating lifestyle change. Then every month maybe do a 2 day juice fast for extra cleaning
