Some impressions of the latest juicing workshop

20170318-juicingOn 18 March I organised a slow juicing & smoothie workshop in collaboration with Sampoorna Yoga studio. The wonderful Sophie Claeys of the Yoga Bar hosted the workshop in her spacious kitchen and 7 other lovely ladies joined in.

There were 2 slow juicers (JazzMax) and one Vitamix blender working overtime to make the fabulous creations concocted by the attendees. One juice after the other was churned out slowly & deliberately, one more tasty than the other… as it’s all about finding the balance between the right amount of sweet & more tangy or bitter vegetables and fruits as well as the added boosters & kicks as my inspirator Kris Carr calls them.

  • If you wish to organise a slow juicing & smoothie workshop at your home, simply drop me a note. I organise them for groups as from 6 people.

Offer yourself a healthy lifestyle with a Jazz Max juicer

JAZZ MAXSeasons are changing and the temperature is going down , more and more people are catching colds. We all need to nourish ourselves well to protect against viruses and colds. This includes eating at least the 5 suggested portions of fruits and vegetables every day. But it would be even better to take more than that (preferably organic produce). This is especially valid for kids, pregnant ladies and elderly people who might have a more fragile immune system.

There’s an easy solution to obtain your daily dose of vegetables & fruits: juicing

Actually, 800 grams of fresh vegetables would be the ideal daily quantity, and only one glass of you fresh juice already gives you 250 grams worth of vegetables. When you juice, you hydrate, mineralize and detoxify your organism. It’s the easy way (back) to health. Vegetable juice is very easy on the digestive system, as the fibers have been taken out; nutrients are transported directly to your cells. So especially if you are tired or stressed and don’t have a lot of time, then juicing is the answer for you!

So what more do you need to know? Invest in your health and buy yourself the best gift ever: a juicer. I highly recommend the JazzMax slowjuicer that I use myself and that I also sell as a distributor for the brand. This juicer preserves a maximum of nutrients as it slowly extracts the juice from the fibers; the remaining pulp is very dry. You can store your juice in a Mason jar or glass bottle in the fridge and it should keep for 48 hours (however, I still drink it after 4 days sometimes). Besides making juice, your JazzMax juicer also makes: pesto, sorbet , vegetable spreads, humus, seed & nut butter & oils, tapenade. Some of my favorite recipes: kale pesto, parsley pesto, juices. So besides being able to make so much great food and drinks with your juicer, you’ll be saving lots of money on buying juices on the go.

  • Feel free Contact me for more information or a demonstration.

Quotes from a customer:
Valeriya: “The JazzMax is much more than I expected. For example, I didn’t expect that the pulp could be used in various dishes. And when my blender doesn’t work for a certain preparation, I use the JazzMax as it’s so powerful in making tapenade and vegetables spreads. It has literally changed my life, I eat so much more vegetables, I also make curries and cookies from the pulp. When juicing, I’m already on a healthy vibe, so it’s a kind of meditation. Even my dog loves the vegetable pulp (not the ginger).

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.

<3 juicing

I’d been a big fan of smoothies for a long time & have even sent a couple of blenders to the blender graveyard by trying out many blends of (frozen) fruits, veggies, nuts, pulses, seeds, …

JAZZ MAX

After reading the book ‘Crazy Sexy Diet‘ by Kris Carr and attending a healthy living workshop, 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 and hence gets a maximum of nutrients out of your (organic) vegetables and fruits.

I experiment with whatever comes in my bi-weekly organic and local vegetable basket as well as with vegetables and fruits that I happen to have in the house. If your fruits & veggies are organic, all you need to do is wash them and them cut them into the right size to fit them in the juicer. If they aren’t organic, then, peal them and wash them thoroughly before juicing them.

The 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.

Some of my favorites juice blends are:

  • carrot, apple, ginger
  • 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 get your daily dose of omega-3 fat.
I love ginger & will probably write an entire blog post on the health benefits of ginger in the near future.
