I just got a new juicer for the holidays! I am so excited about this one. It’s a slow juicer, which is believed to extract more juice and retain more nutrients from the fruits and vegetables. It also takes up practically no kitchen space and only murmurs a slight hum when juicing. So of course a new juice recipe in light of the many juices I’ve been making is due.
This recipe, I originally called Ruby Red Juice for its rich and deep-red color, is full of vibrant seasonal fruits and vegetables. You’ll find beets, parsley, ginger, carrots, Swiss chard, oranges, lemon, celery and apples in this juice. With a swath of ideas, I’ve been reliably turning to these rich and nutrient-dense red juice. You'll find along with the seasonality of produce, this juice is an ode to the one of my favorite winter colors (re: my past post on the colors of season)... Read More
I am writing today on the first beautiful day in August. The air is crisp and in motion. Days have been slow and the heat thick and permanent. But today is different and today is Tuesday. A fresh start to what looks like a beautiful week! Having traveled throughout the summer, I haven’t gotten back into a rhythm, which is to say I haven’t decided on a breakfast. Usually, I get obsessed with something and start making it a lot. For a while it was bread, and anything on it; for a brief moment in the mid-summer heat, I was all about hot oatmeal and hot tea (I know…), and now it’s a variety of mixes of whatever I have or whatever looks appealing that day. Not very much in a routine...but that’s ok, because that’s what I love about summer. Every day feels different, there’s an endless feeling of possibilities. And so my breakfast changes and my routine is put on hold... Read More

Happy First Day of Spring! I can’t believe spring is already here. Today started off with a cold morning chill and overcast skies, but I do not fear that spring is right around the corner. In the grey gloom, daffodils and cherry blossoms have already started to bloom. With warmer weather imminent and budding flowers perfuming the air, I thought I’d share a bright and refreshingly sweet smoothie to celebrate spring: Today I’m making a Pineapple-Mango Mint Smoothie...
