Today I am sharing this delectable sweet potato vegetable juice from one of my favourite food bloggers, the incomparable Gena Hamshaw from The Full Helping. You may remember Gena's sensational Beet and Hemp Granola from the "Raw Food Recipes" event last year, where I basically professed my undying love for this lovely lady.
I met up with Gena in NYC last year, and she was just as magical in person as she appears on her blog. What makes her so magnetic is her down-to-earth, honest, and authentic way of moving through the world. She remains ever present, sharing her moment-to-moment perspective and experiences in a fluid manner that makes for really compelling reading.
This former book editor, certified clinical nutritionist, and pre-med, post-baccalaureate student at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. has created a warm, friendly, and compassionate community of conscious people interested in healthy living. Gena uses anecdotes about her childhood struggles with eating disorders and IBS, current personal experiences, and delicious vegan and raw recipes to inspire mindfulness in her readers. Having regained her health, vibrance, and balance with the help of a plant based diet, her personal experiences are inspiring.
Check out Gena's Green Recovery Series, where she celebrates the stories of other men and women who have redefined their relationships with food in a positive way with the help of plant-based living. Also read through her lifestyle page and how to get started pages for introductory information about going vegan and raw. Gena is a wonderful writer, contributing countless articles to some of the biggest magazines in America, such as VegNews, O Magazine, Whole Living Daily, and Food52.
Gena also does wonderful work as a nutritional consultant and recipe developer. Last year, she assisted popular D.C eatery Sweetgreen in creating their impressive Sweetpress range of cold pressed juices. One of their popular juice blends containing sweet potato, apple, pear, cinnamon, ginger, and lemon inspired Gena to create this delicious sweet potato, carrot, bell pepper, celery, and ginger vegetable juice that she is sharing today.
If you haven't tried juicing raw sweet potatoes, give it a go. They are so naturally sweet, creamy, and yummylicious. As Gena points out in her original recipe post, juicing extracts the sweetness and micronutrients of the potatoes without the starch. So, it is a wonderful way to get the best out of these nutrient-dense veggies. This recipe is a fabulous Winter immune boosting, cold blasting glass of goodness. Sweet potatoes and red peppers are a wonderful source of Vitamin C and beta carotene, and the ginger makes it warming, making it a perfect cold weather juice.
If none of that grabs you, try this juice for the taste! Oh My. This delectable concoction tastes like a decadent Winter dessert!
Gena, thanks for sharing your scrumptious creation with us.
You are going to be an amazing doctor. xx
