Dear Pure Simple Juice-loving friends,
This is the second to the last week of the farmers market! I know you all will be a little sad and so will I. We will all certainly miss the wonderful farm fresh produce and foods that have been at the market this summer. So on that note, this week I will be bringing you the best of the summer cause why not? I mean you only get watermelons and plums for so long.
Recipes are not firm yet but get ready…
Carrot/Nectarine/Apple-This is the closest I’ve come to Orange Juice, in color and in nutrition content, full of Vitamin C and A and is absolutely divine.
Plum/Asian Pear/Blackberry-Who doesn’t love plum, pear, and blackberry, the finest fruits of summer all blended in to one.
WatermelonMint? WatermelonPeach? WatermelonMelon? Haven’t decided yet, Am taking suggestions. This will be a small batch because I only have a limited supply of melons but sure to be watermelonlishious.
pre-order your juices NOW as you all know some weeks they fly out of the coolers fast. If you have forgotten, Thursday, NW 19th/Everett, Portland Farmers Market 3-7pm.
It is perhaps obvious that I am a believer in the benefits of cleansing your diet and body but I wanted to share that not only do I support those whom are cleansing but do in fact participate myself. And now is the time for a cleanse for me.
How did I know? Well after a month of house guests and entertaining I was left with a feeling of slow digestion, oily skin and fully addicted to caffeine. I certainly enjoyed myself and many of Portland’s indulgences, possibly a little too much at times but I know I pushed my edge and after my last guest left I was clearly very ready to bring balance and health back into my life.
So where to begin? Caffeine. I always like to eliminate caffeine first, as it’s difficult and I can get grumpy if I make a lot of changes at once. The perfect time I thought was just before I went backpacking last weekend. Days 1,2,3, and 4 left me with a small aching head but I also had aching everything after hiking 25 miles so alas am happy to report now day 6, no headache.Today I began with herbal coffee (dandelion root, maca powder, and some other healing herbs) as mentally I really wanted coffee because it’s gray and coldish and coffee just goes right along with those things. Herbal coffee fulfilled my desires enough and I have officially deemed myself unaddicted, for now anyway.
Cleanses vary and can be really anything you like from water cleanses to only raw foods. I have decided the theme of my cleanse-Vitality! Bringing life force through truly nourishing foods and I am aiming for 90% raw and/or sprouted foods….so begins my cleanse with vitality salads, sprouted grains, veggies and Pure Simple Juice Smoothies. Feeling better already after putting that intention out there. And so I begin, starting off with a farm fresh delivery of swiss chard, salad greens, heirloom tomatoes and wild blackberries….recipes to come.
It’s beautiful Oregon berry season and therefore once again we will have wild blackberry, golden apple, ginger & lemon juice. Chocked full of antioxidants and disease-fighters! Also this week Green Lemon. Just because it is so good–tasty and amazingly healthy too. Cucumber, Apple, Kale, Parsley & Lemon. And as always we’ll have a few bottles of our Pure Simple Juice signature Almond Milk.
