Make your own juice, pesto & nut butters at home with your Jazz Max juicer

JAZZ MAXAbout 3 years ago I posted a blog the love for my juicer: Jazz Max.

I bought myself the great gift of a Jazz Max in the spring of 2012. The Jazz Max is a slow juicer that transforms any vegetable or hard fruit into a juice, it doesn’t warm up the ingredients and hence gets a maximum of nutrients out of your (organic) vegetables and fruits.

I still experiment with mostly local & seasonal vegetables and fruits that I happen to have in the house. As I only use organic fruits & veggies, all I need to do is wash them and them cut them into the right size to fit them in the juicer. I’ve surprised many visitors in the past years with my creations 🙂

raw vegan kale pestoThe Jazz Max juicer comes with two different heads, so besides juices, you can use it to make your own nut butter (cashew, almond, macadamia, …) after having soaked the nuts in filtered water overnight, as well as to make oils (almond), baby meals, pumpkin puree and much more. Furthermore, I make a mean parsley pesto, it’s simply divine with pasta.

Some of my favorites juice blends are:

  • carrot, apple, ginger
  • kale, celery, beetroot, carrot, ginger (apple: optional)
  • kale & pear
  • kohlrabi, beetroot, carrot, ginger
  • zucchini, kale, fresh turmeric

You can add hemp or flax seeds oil to your juices to get your daily dose of omega-3 fat.

As I got so many enthusiastic about the juices and the benefits, I recently started distributing the Jazz Max juicers. Contact me if you wish to get your own health machine at home. You will never buy another juice again, as your own creations are simply the best (and cheapest)! Order your Jazz Max through me and I’ll give you a personal workshop for free.

Yogi snack: NAKD raw bars

NakdbarsI discovered these Nākd bars some years ago in London. They are delicious and a very good snack for an after yoga practice craving 😉

They are 100% raw, vegan, sugar+wheat+GMO+soy FREE with no hidden extras. Unfortunately, currently they are not (yet) organic or Fairtrade. Personally, I find that snacks can be part of a healthy diet, as long as you don’t use them as your main meal and it remains an exception rather than the rule. Nākd bars are an easy way to eat nutritious, healthy food without compromising on taste.The bars are made from natural ingredients such as fruits and nuts which are squeezed together into a bar and are easy to bring where-ever you go.

Besides some retail outlets (that I yet have to discover) they are only available through web order in Belgium: 18 euros for 18 bars. 6,20 euro shipping, which is waived if you order 3 boxes or more. I’d say, order a bunch with some friends and enjoy the healthy snack every now & then!
