Juicing Recipes To Shake Off Pounds And Boost Your Energy

Getting motivated to lose weight isn’t a problem for some people.

Staying motivated is often another story. When a diet doesn’t produce results right away, studies show people usually don’t stick with it. Setting the bar too high, too soon can lead to frustration and a fast exit of a regimen that might have in the long run reached the person’s goals.

“The best way to stick to a diet is to start with reasonable goals,” said Cherie Calbom, MS, and author of The Juice Lady’s Sipping Skinny (www.juiceladycherie.com) and a leading authority on juicing for health and detoxification. “And the best diets are those that don’t just lead to success in losing weight but also gain you health with the nutrients they provide.”

Juicing, Calbom says, should replace one or two meals a day, not all of them. And one way to ensure someone sticks with a juicing diet, she adds, is to research a variety of recipes “to avoid getting stuck in a recipe rut, as people do when bouncing from diet to diet.”

“Good diets are as much about committing to change your internal landscape as they are about changing your outward appearance,” she said.

With that in mind, Calbom offers three recipes to add variety to the diet:

Apple Cider Vinegar Fat Blaster

1 qt. purified water
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar (raw)
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
Dash of cayenne pepper
Several drops of stevia to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Drink a glass 20 minutes before a meal.

Cinnamon Swirl

2 cups full-fat coconut milk
1 cup chopped apple
½ cup packed baby spinach
1 tsp. ground cinnamon, or ½ tsp. liquid cinnamon
Several drops of stevia
4-6 ice cubes
Add protein powder

Put all the ingredients in a blender and process until creamy.

Rockin’ Green Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
1 cup frozen berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries)
1 cup baby spinach
1 cup chopped kale or chard
½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
4-6 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and creamy.
