Trader joes green juice is good-to-go!

Did you know? Trader Joes has an amazing little green juice for only $4.99. The juice is cold pressed, too for high nutrient extraction.
It’s great fuel for on-the-go. There are three flavor – red , orange, and green – but I’ve only tried the green because I like kale.
Try one out and write me back to tell me what you think.

How To Eat Healthy at Work and While Traveling

Tomorrow I am getting up for a long day at work, and then I am traveling on a train for 5 hours, from Chicago to Detroit. I will wake up at 5:25am and will get to Michigan at 1am. Needless to say: LONG DAY.

How will I stay healthy, focused and energized for this long day?

In the video below I show you what I will be eating over the course of the day, and why it makes sense (nutritionally) as the PERFECT FUEL for the day I will be going through:


I will also be drinking lots of water, as well as mostly likely a fair share of organic green tea. (by fair share I mean, probably about a liter or more over the course of the day!).

Will definitely be carrying a bag of raw, sprouted, dehydrated almonds with me, too (forgot to mention that – I love the ones by “Living Intentions“, they are an awesome, healthy snack!).




NEW: Green Juice (and Raw Coconut Water) at Pret A Manger, in Washington DC.

Pret A Manger, Washington DC now offering green juice and raw coconut water.
The 14.5 oz cold pressed green juice (in this case: “apple, cucumber, spinach, celery & lime”) is $5.99 (+tax) and tastes pretty green albeit very sweet from the apple (That being said, I can definitely taste the presence cucumber – which is a good, healthy-tasting thing).

I am happy to see more raw, vegan, health-conscious and nutritious food products coming to the Washington DC market.

The only criticism I could offer (which may be a deal breaker for some) is that the juice is NOT labeled ORGANIC. While not being organic does allow for a lower price point, which will get more people trying green juice… in order for this beverage to be fully legit, and meet a high level of quality: Pret a Manger needs to make this green juice organic and market it as such (as they have done a good job with for their organic coffee).

All in all, I am excited to see more green juice in Washington DC!

Here’s an idea…

Save the parts from greens that you might otherwise discard, get yourself a Green Star Juicer and make juice!

It’s cheaper than buying a $10 bottle of juice; that’s for sure! :D

About Green Star Juicer:

Independent laboratory tests confirm that the Green Star‘s Twin Gear Press extracts a substantially higher quantity of minerals than “leading” juicers. Concentrations of essential minerals, like calcium, iron, and zinc are 50%-200% higher in juice from the Green Star than from other name brands juicers. Now, your commitment to drinking raw juice can really begin to pay off!

Dean & Deluca Launches Green Juice in DC

Now you can get your greens-fix at a very reasonable price from Dean and Deluca in Georgetown, Washington DC.
For only $7 you can have a 16oz fresh pressed (make sure you read the date to know what day it was made), unpasteurized raw green juice (kale, broccoli, spinach, celery, apples). Although it has apples (not low-glycemic), I don’t mind, because I am happy to see green juice in DC! The wave is coming…

Green Juice @ LIQUITERIA (NYC)

Liquiteria is a health food factory. There seems to be an army of employees making hand-made juice and smoothies for the throng of patrons looking for some glow.

I like green juice. A lot.

Bottled green juices done right are cold-pressed and masticated – producing a higher quality juice which is more nutrient-dense.

The green juice at Liquiteria is a standard low-glycemic mix: kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, celery, cucumber. Nothing too fancy.


The best part?

It’s one of the cheapest legit green juices in town. At only $8.75 per bottle (including tax) it beats out Juice Press and Organic Avenue by a couple bucks


Beware: make sure you check the expiration date. Bottled green juice has a three day shelf life. Many of the bottles being sold where expiring on the day I was buying them (meaning that they were three days old). I had to ask the manager in both Liquiteria locations I visited to find for me a juice that had been bottled fewer than 24 hours before (which they found for me in the back room.. these juices were not yet on the grab-and-go fridge shelves).
