It is DAY 18 of "Green Juicing With Omega" to celebrate our AMAZING Omega Juicer Giveaway. Don't miss out on your chance to win one of the three remaining Omega Vert VRT350 Masticating Juicers. I will announce another lucky winner this weekend! 

Today is the first day of our 3 DAY JUICE CLEANSE led by my dear friend Karen Kipp from Power Your Journey. We have had hundreds of people sign up and join the facebook group for this free guided group cleanse. I have been preparing for the last few days, have booked in for my colonics, have made my raw vegan green milk and veggie broth, and I am sitting here with my morning cleansing juice.

It is not too late to join us! Karen and I will be moderating the group all weekend and available for support and encouragement, and to answer questions. Sign up here. Alternatively, the entire Winter Cleanse, including preparation instructions, daily fast routine, recipes, and post fast guidelines will be on the site for you to participate at your leisure. Enjoy. 

Today, I have a fabulous detox juice from the gloriously green maven, Marie-Claire Hermans from Ravishing Raw. Marie-Claire is a raw food chef, author, and coach in Belgium, Europe who also leads wonderful juice fasts. You may remember her when she shared her incredible raw lasagne for the "Raw Foods With Excalibur" event. 

Marie-Claire is a master juicer! So, I had to have her contribute one of her delicious detox juices this month! Marie-Claire has some incredible juice recipes on her site. Alternatively, you can purchase the RAVISHING JUICE FAST, eBook, where she guides you through a cleansing juice fast for 3 weeks with thorough information to remove all toxins and rejuvenate your body safely. This fabulous eBook comes with a recipe for every day through the several phases of Ravishing Raw’s online live juice fast group program that Marie-Claire organizes twice a year. Marie-Clarie's next juice fast is in March. Check it out here

Those of your who sign up for Marie-Claire’s free newsletter will receive, RAW FOR 3 DAYS – FROM MINDSET TO RAVISHING RECIPES. This free eBook offers an easy, fun and delicious way to experience all things RAW. Marie-Claire explains the benefits of eating live raw foods, and shares menu ideas for three days complete with step-by-step photos of all the recipes, and shopping lists. Subscribers then receive a second eBook a week later with a questionnaire to reflect on physical, mental, and emotional changes as a result of the dietary changes, and assistance for future development.

Marie-Claire's green juice incorporates wheatgrass juice, leafy greens, dandelions, celery, apple, kiwi, fennel, lemon, turmeric, and ginger to create one of the most powerful detox juices I have tasted. It packs a mighty punch and is absolutely delicious! 

Marie-Claire is an amazing raw food and healthy living resource. She offers private raw food workshops as well as one-to-one personal coaching as well as free information on her website. This is one of my favourite raw food sites with so much information on "all things raw" such as: how to understand a raw foods diet; a glossary of raw vegan ingredients and kitchen tools; delicious recipes in easy-to-find categories like fermented foods, desserts and sweet treats, smoothies, "looks like cooked", juices, and dehydrated recipes.

Marie-Claire, thankyou for sharing one of your sensational juice recipes. You are just RAWmazing...

the best way to grate fresh ginger

Nothing beats a porcelain ginger grater! Just rub the whole ginger piece unpeeled over the grater and you have it ready in literally seconds, Procelain ginger graters are as cheap and chips and so easy to clean. Just place the whole grater under running water and everything runs off. That little piece of kitchen gadget mastery would be in my top ten favourite cooking tools. I have had mine for years and travel everywhere with it. Thankyou Tony!

I just want to say how inspiring all your recipes have been!

I was vegan 3 years ago when out of the blue I developed allergies to many basic ingredient like tree nuts, oats, nightshades, sulftes, ect and I’ve floundered trying to find ANY food I can still enjoy. 

Finding SO many recipes I can eat/drink, that are well organized and genuinely health-not vegan cupcakes healthy-is the best I’ve felt about food for a long while!

Thanks for sharing!
