Great Debate: Smoothies vs. Juice

March 28, 2012

The debate over whether smoothies or fresh unpasteurized juice is better will never go away—and there are people who feel very passionately one way or the other. I find this interesting, and I also think the debate is much like most nutrition debates. The “right answer” is that neither is better or worse than the [...]

Spotlight on Micronutrients

April 27, 2011

One of my favorite analogies for reaching wellness goals goes something like this (a la Jerry and Esther Hicks)… If you’re in Phoenix, Arizona, and you want to get to San Diego, California, you need to look at a map and plan your course. When you start your journey, you face in the direction of [...]

It’s Spring Break again! Time to Clean…and Cleanse.

April 15, 2011

I love spring—I have this feeling like it’s all uphill from here! I also love weekends, and I’m on spring break from 1/9 of my work responsibilities. I’m going to do work tonight until I have things caught up, so I can relax tomorrow and go to a new yoga class.  Anyone in Rochester/Canandaigua area [...]

How to Stop Living in Glue (and some awesome carrot/almond balls!)

March 29, 2011

A common thread among human beings (not everyone, but many of us) is that we have a hard time doing things on our To Do Lists. Joe is not one of these people. He wakes up in the morning, assesses what needs to be done, and then he just does it. He doesn’t think twice [...]

Superfood Brunch with My Mini-Me!

March 19, 2011

Wait till you see what we invented!  They’re called Bressert Chips! I thought this week on my semi-spring break that I would have time to relax toward the end of the week. What actually happened is that I’m left wondering how I would have gotten my work done if I was not on break from [...]

Renewed Interest – Drinkin’ my Energy

December 7, 2010

My wellness habits occur in cycles. I don’t do this on purpose, but I tend to stick to something for a while, and then move onto something else. One thing that keeps coming up over and over is green juice. My weekend of juices in NYC (not all green) made me crave more when I [...]

Third Day’s a Charm? Or a Bust? Either Way, it Feels Like Success to Me.

September 10, 2010

Fruit Juice #2 was: pineapple and peaches (peaches taste great, but are SO foamy when juiced). The veg juices are all the same: watermelon, apple, cilantro, parsley, lime, lettuce (LOTS of lettuce from the farmer’s market), ginger, cucumber. My juicing is going really well—I wasn’t crazy about the beet juice for Day 2, but I’ve [...]

Juiced Up and Ready to Go!

September 9, 2010

Day one of Juicing went well for me. I drank one fruit juice (and skipped the kombucha because it’s not ready yet), but other than that I stuck to green juice and tea.  Joe just told me that he has had enough watermelon juice, and that I should give the rest to the Friends. I [...]

Confessions of an Overzealous Juicer

September 8, 2010

I intentionally volunteered to make juice for four people for three days straight. I was so happy for others to be sharing in my enthusiasm for raw fresh juice, that I did not think about what the process would be like. And honestly, I am sitting here watching Joe make half of his own juice [...]
