Hey you guys!! I’m really excited to be sharing this with you today. If you follow along with my instagram adventures, you probably already know that one of my best friends, Jamie Graber, owns an amazing juice bar and cafe in Manhattan called Gingersnap’s Organic, where she offers the best cleanses in the city. Everything there is organic. It’s the first place I go every time I get back from traveling. I’m in love with her juices, smoothies, salads, soups, and pretty much everything about the place. I spend a SIGNIFICANT amount of time there when I’m in New York City, and I miss it so much when I’m away. :)
The cool thing about Jamie and Gingersnaps is that she cares SO much about what she puts into her food. She’s really passionate about helping others heal and thrive, and her enthusiasm and dedication is magnetic.
Over the past year, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing my friend Jamie write a book. This is no small process, and I’ve watched her go through countless hours of recipe testing, photography, research, and writing. I’ve seen her pour so much love into her book, and I’ve also had the delicious honor of taste testing some of the recipes with her. :)
Today, her book officially launches. And it’s beautiful.
I’m so proud of her.
Juice It, Blend It, Live It contains over 50 recipes for juices, smoothies, nut milks, and DIY cleanses. The photos inside the book are GORGEOUS and the recipes are incredible. Every single recipe in this book is designed to make you feel amazing, energetic, and alive.
Jamie has kindly allowed me to share one of my favorite recipes from the book, from my favorite chapter, called “Green Juices Without Fruit.” :)
It’s called the Lemon Burst, and it has one of my favorite detoxing ingredients — CILANTRO!!! YUM!! My mouth is literally watering as I write this.
Lemon Burst Green Juice from Juice It, Blend It, Live It.
(Must have a juicer in order to make this juice!)
- 2 handfuls of cilantro
- 8 kale leaves
- 1 large head romaine
- 1 lemon
Run all ingredients through juicer, drink, and thrive!!! :)
Jamie recommends keeping the lemon skin on when you juice it, as it contains a ton of nutrients — but this could make the juice taste a little bitter, so only use half the peel or no peel if you’d like.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this beautiful book to energize, detox and nourish your mind and body. I can’t stop reading through it. It’s going to have a permanent place in my kitchen for sure!!!
Can’t wait to hear what you guys think about the book. It’s just awesome. And the foreword was written by our amazing friend Gabrielle Bernstein!! Beautiful things, my friends. Beautiful things.
Grab your copy of Juice It, Blend It, Live it. And what the heck, grab a few copies for holiday gifts too!! :) (Can you believe it’s already November!? AH!)
Love you guys so much!
