Hi  :)

I'm Alison, a yoga instructor and lifestyle blogger in my mid-twenties. I grew up in Southern California, went to college on the Central Coast, and now live up north in the Bay Area. Thanks for sharing my adventures in fitness, food, travel -- I hope they inspire you to live your happiest and healthiest life!

The JUICE Book

A few weeks ago I decided to order Pressed Juicery's book, JUICE, and am I ever glad that I did...

A close friend of mine had introduced me to juicing awhile back and I've had a growing interest in it ever since. Before investing in a juicer of my own, I figured I had some homework to do, which is exactly where JUICE comes in to play... I highly recommend this book to anyone who is considering adding fresh juice to their diet and lifestyle. Not only do Carly, Hedi, and Hayden share tons of fresh juice recipes, they also provide nutritional fruit & veggie info and a helpful comparison of the different types of juicers that are out there! Lucky for me, my friend became my roommate, so I won't be needing to get a juicer of my own just yet ;)

Now I've yet to follow one of Pressed Juicery's Roots/Greens/Citrus recipes to a T, but here's the breakdown of one of my latest concoctions:

  • 1 Purple Carrot
  • Half of a Candy Cane Beet
  • 3 leaves of Kale
  • 3 leaves of Romaine
  • Handful of Spinach
  • 2 stalks of Celery
  • Head of Broccoli
  • 1 See Canyon Apple
  • 1 Orange
  • 1 Lemon
  • Small handful Cilantro

If you've got a juicer (or a good friend with one, like me), grab your produce and let me know how it goes! And if you don't have access to one, get your blender ready and head on over to my Kale Smoothie recipe. Cheers!
