The Juice Diet VS. The Plant-Powered Juice Plan
By ‘juice diet,’ you may anticipate that the only source of nutrition you’ll consume is from juice. While a juice-only cleanse can be beneficial for some individuals, especially those with particular health concerns, a juice-only plan is not necessary in order to benefit from the power of juice.
Full and Fresh Over 5-Days
Juice is the unmistakable hero in this plan, but the mission is to nourish you, not make you feel deprived or that you’re following a plan that is unrealistic for your lifestyle. On the contrary, the plan features varied, simple recipes packed with nutrients that will keep you feeling full and fresh. Throughout the five days, you’ll enjoy a mix of fresh juice, blended juice, and plant-powered snacks and meals. As you progress, you’re likely to notice a marked increase in your physical energy and mental clarity.

Sample Recipe: Strawberry Herb (Blended Juice)
Prep time: 10 minutes/Blend time: 1 minute/Low Sugar/Veggie Based
This blended juice reminds me of spring and summer, which I suppose is a natural reaction to the yummy strawberries and basil that enhance its flavor. It’s a light, fresh, and happy drink full of nutrition. Basil in particular is a great immune booster that contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Bring the season’s best to your body with this tasty concoction!
Prepare all the ingredients by rinsing, scrubbing, or peeling as necessary. Cut the ingredients to a size appropriate for your blender. Add all the ingredients to the blender, following the general principle of liquid first, lightweight ingredients next, and the heaviest on top. Blend on high for 40 to 60 seconds, and enjoy within 1 hour or refrigerate or freeze overnight.
Berries and herbs go great together! Mix it up by trying blackberry and mint or peach and cilantro.
½ cup filtered water
3 cups romaine lettuce
¼ cup fresh basil
