Renewing the Mind, Body, and Spirit through juicing

Nothing like a Sunset Walk


My walk the other day was 3 1/2 miles.  I went the extra mile because it felt great.  I noticed that most people during my walk engage in what I call “the lazy walk”.  This is a walk when your arms are down to your side swinging casually back and forth walking as if you were casually walking through a department store, “the lazy walk”.  If you want to achieve better results, change your technique.

First you have to keep a fast pace with your elbows tucked in tight and your arms swinging as fast as your legs are moving.  I know it’s hard to keep this pace and maintain your form during a 2 to 3 mile walk however; staying consistent in your form creates better results.

If you are looking to lose in your midsection move your arms because that motion helps your core even though it may not feel like it.  So, no lazy walking, keep your form and a brisk walk lapping the lazy walkers on the track as I do and you will see the results you want.

Keep juicing at least one a day, Cheers!

Let’s Walk Today

I made the mistake of staying up late on Sunday night. That caused me to be very tired all day long on Monday. When I finished my day, I did not feel like working out, Being so tired, I simply wanted to take a nap when I got home.  But, instead, I pulled out my Nutr-Bullet, grabbed two watermelon slices, one Roma Tomato, and one Lemon. I put it all in my bullet, filled it with water to the Max line, turned it on and drank it. After 10 minutes,I found myself putting on my workout clothes, getting in my car, and arriving at the track. After a 2 1/2 mile walk, I felt even more energized.

So when you’re feeling tired, try my energy drink. For an even bigger boost, add a little ginger.  You’ll feel better and get more done.  Walking is great exercise.  Find a distance that works for you. Remember, one of the keys to successful walking is using the proper form.  So get up and go walk.

Here are my suggestions: Always stretch before your workout. Your calves, your quads and your hamstrings. Hold each stretch for about 30 seconds. And, lastly bend over and touch your toes for about 25 seconds to stretch your back, raise your arms up over your head stretched to the sky and then begin your walk.

1. Walk at a fast pace. A fast pace is the same as a slow run.

2. Be sure to use your arms. Elbows tucked in tight, and your hands should hit at nose level.

3. When you feel as though you want to slow down, push through. You will feel great when you finish.

4. Don’t Quit

We’d like to hear from you. Tell about your walking adventure and success stories.

Creating Your Own Snacks


Often times it’s easy to stop at the store and by a bag of potato chips or a candy bar. Let’s explore a new way to make it convenient to snack healthy.  Keep a small Tupperware container in your car, at your desk in the office, and at your bedside or wherever you think that you might want to reach for snack.  When you feel the urge, your container is right there for easy access and prevents you from reverting back your old snack habits.

When you juice, there is a tendency to crave between meals and juicing and that’s okay. Go to your neighborhood Sprouts grocery store and pick up individual bags of the nut, granola and dry berries. My choices include a variety of nuts, various types of granola, dry fruits, berries, and trail mix.

Sprouts is one of my favorite stores because they have an impressive inventory of things to choose from. Not just one type of granola or nuts but there may be five or more different types from which to choose. The other store I frequent is Trader Joe’s where I was able to find the meat of the pistachio without the shell.

Here is what my snack consisted of today:

1/2 cup of roasted unsalted cashew
1/2 cup of the meat of pistachios
1 cup granola with hemp seed and pumpkin seed

Mix it all together and snack away.  I will keep you posted on the different mixtures that I create.  Get through to your next meal or juice healthy snacks and keep up the good work.


Take a Field Trip and Recruit Others

To increase your juicing result you will want to exercise.  One way is to just walk.  However, before you begin here are three things we would like you to do before you begin a walking regiment.

1.  When I moved into a new neighborhood recently one of the first things I did was drive around to explore the neighborhood.  It was a very successful trip.  I found six different areas to walk.   It’s always nice to mix it up so you don’t get bored.

2.  Seek out walking partners who can benefit from and enjoy a nice walk.  Friendly conversation and laughter is always a good part of a walking regiment and it keeps you motivated to keep doing it. You’ll feel accountable to show up when more people are involved.

3.  Invest in a nice pair of walking shoes.  It makes all the difference in the world.

Please consult your doctor to make sure you are fit enough for the type of journey you are planning.

See you on the track!
