Burt Juices Manhattan: By CHI Canadian Correspondant Burt Serfaty

New York, the city that never sleeps sure did a number on me. For the past two days I’ve been trekking around Manhattan visiting every organic juice bar on the island.

 

I call it research and development for my own upcoming organic juice bar in Toronto. Why re-invent the wheel? If it’s selling in New York it must be hot. So I asked around.

My first stop was Juice Press, all organic juices, smoothies and some raw food and snacks. At 70 east 1st St. I found this location had the right vibe. Of course the unusually warm and sunny weather sure helped get everyone dancing in the streets. So me being a typical guy, I went over to a group of stunning models to get their thoughts. I asked my first question and they all stood up to answer. This is a problem for me. I’m 5′ 6″. After asking them politely to have a seat they told me they love raw juices and smoothies because it keeps their energy up and their flat bellies full without having to eat a large meal. Then I found out there is a modelling agency in the neighborhood. I opted for the Frozone, a delicious smoothie made from coconut water, acai berry, banana, strawberry, raw cacao powder, bee pollen and a pinch of sea salt. All 17 ounces for $8.

My next stop was Organic Avenue on Sullivan St. in Soho. I was still full from the Frozone but I had to make some room for the Veggie Vibrance. Made from carrot, celery, cucumber, beet, spinach, swiss chard, lemon, ginger and parsley. I enjoyed this drink straight from the glass returnable bottle. I did find the taste of ginger overpowered the other ingredients, but then again I’m not the biggest fan of ginger.

On my second day I again started out at the Juice Press new location on Mott St. I had the Pico de Gallo, literally translated from spanish to mean chicken beak! Let me tell you it was awesome. Mesculen greens, a whole avocado filled with homemade salsa, vegan jalepeno cashew cheese, raw beets and sprouts but what made this salad work for me was the dressing.

The rest of the day I visited some family run juice bars that offered a mix of juices and food and some pretty odd choices. For example a sign read “Fresh organic vegetable juice 10% off with any choice of hamburger or chicken entree.”  You figure that one out. My day ended at another Organic Avenue location on 116 Suffolk in the lower east side. My choice this time was the “Creamy Orange Love Smoothie,” made with orange juice, coconut meat, lucuma powder, coconut sugar, vanilla, tumeric, Irish moss, Himalayan salt and stevia. A bit sweet for me but very tasty.

Tomorrow my last day in Manahattan its the Juicy Lucy Juice Bar and One Lucky Duck, with those names they’re a must visit. Oh, another reason why I love the Juice Press and Organic Avenue is all their food, juices and smoothies are certified Kosher. Sacred juice, you just can’t go wrong!

Day 3 – Greens & Apples – Juice January 3, 2012

 

Greens & Apples

 Makes 2 glasses

Ingredients:

  • 2 collard greens leaves
  • 2 kale leaves
  • handful of spinach
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 – 3 Granny Smith Apples

Directions:

  1. Juice all ingredients in a juicer.
  2. Pour into a shaker with ice and mix well. Enjoy!

Health Tip: Eat your greens! This is such a yummy way to do it.  According to The World’s Healthiest Foods, The cholesterol-lowering ability of collard greens may be the greatest of all commonly eaten cruciferous vegetables. In a recent study, steamed collard greens outshined steamed kale, mustard greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage in terms of its ability to bind bile acids in the digestive tract.  Kale, of course, is another super green. The World’s Healthiest Foods reports kale’s risk-lowering benefits for cancer have recently been extended to at least five different types of cancer. These types include cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, ovary, and prostate. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) made from glucosinolates in kale play a primary role in achieving these risk-lowering benefits.

Day 1 – Carrot Celery Clean Sweep Juice – January 1, 2012

This is day 1 of our 3-7-10 day juice fast -feast.  Everyone can benefit from drinking at least one glass of healthy juice a day.  It’s my hope each of you will want to drink more than one glass of juice to help you cleanse, rebuild and strengthen your bodies after the holiday season.  If you are growing wheatgrass, or sprouts you can always juice them with any of the CHI recipes, in-fact we encourage you to do so.  You have permission to repost or send these juice recipes anywhere you like, just make sure; you give CHI and the author credit.  We love all of you and pray 2012 will be a rawmazing year!

Carrot Celery Clean Sweep


Makes 1 large or two small glasses

Ingredients:

  • 1 celery stick
  • 11 oz of carrots
  • 5 oz green grapes
  • several large sprigs of parsley
  • celery and/or carrot stick to serve as garnish

Directions:

  1. Using a sharp knife, roughly chop the celery and carrots. Push Half of the celery, carrots and grapes through a juicer, then add the parsley sprigs. Add the remaining celery, carrots and grapes in the same way and juice until thoroughly combined.
  2. Pour into one or two glasses and serve with celery and/or carrot stick stirrers for garnish.

Health Tip: This juice is so packed with goodness, you can almost feel it cleansing and detoxing your body. As well as valuable vitamins, the carrots and grapes provide plenty of natural sweetness, which blends perfectly with the mild pepperiness of the celery and fresh scent of parsley. Drink this juice on a regular basis to give your system a thorough clean-out. Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds, and the richest vegetable source of the pro-vitamin A carotenes. Carrots’ antioxidant compounds help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer and also promote good vision, especially night vision.

How Much Weight Will I Lose On A Creative Health Institute Juice Fast?

Juice Fasting Free's Your Spirit

The main benefit offered by a juice fast, to those who wish to lose weight, is the speed of the weight loss. To see a person drop 30-to-40 pounds on a 30-day juice fast is to see a person totally transform his/her life. Self-esteem is given a boost and for the first time in their life, discipline becomes a lifestyle. The juice fast becomes a catalyst for a total life overhaul.

Our guests who complete a 3- 30 day juice fast tell us they start dressing better, showing more confidence, become more organized, more dedicated in relationships and more at peace.

We have designed Creative Health Institutes, three day weight loss juice fast to speed up our guests metabolism enabling them to safely loose an average of three pounds the first day, and two pounds on the second and third day for a an average loss of seven pounds of toxins in three days.

Initially, weight loss can be as high as three-to-four pounds per day, but as the juice fast continues, the average loss will be one pound-per-day. The slower your metabolism is the slower the weight loss.

Focus on the being happy and healthy…
During the days you are juice fasting try to stay focused on the joy and peace you are experiencing and the healthy actions you are taking to improve your life, rather than being consumed with the number of pounds lost each day. Keep in mind water retention can vary your weight five pounds, so watching the scale can be frustrating. The best motivation to juice fast is for physical and spiritual health. Be patient; the juice fasting process is designed to bring about a steady reduction of toxic fat cells, replacing them with healthy cells. Be thankful the toxins are leaving your body and that moment by moment, cell by cell you are creating a new healthy body. Do not have unrealistic expectations. Give your body the time it needs to do the work of cleansing and rebuilding.

Wishing you the best life ever!

Thirty Days of Juice! Day 30

Given our great LOVE affair with WHEATGRASS, we’re wrapping up this 30 Days of Juice! feature with a delicious beverage we know our kindred spirits will enjoy…

The Wheatgrass Juice Martini!

Makes two glasses

Ingredients:

  • 6 Ounces Apple Juice
  • 2 Ounces Lemon Juice
  • ½ Ounce Ginger Juice
  • 2 Ounces Wheatgrass Juice
  • Sparkling Mineral Water

Directions:

  1. You will juice your fruit separately using about 4 apples, 1 lemon, 3 inches of  ginger and two cups of wheatgrass. If you do not have a juicer that’s appropriate for wheatgrass, you can blend it with a few ounces of purified water in a high-speed blender and strain the blended mixture through a seed and nut bag to remove the pulp.
  2. Mix juices together and add sparkling mineral water to taste.
  3. Pour into martini glasses and enjoy!

Health Tip: The best thing about wheatgrass juice  is that it contains 70% chlorophyll – the pure sunlight energy plant enzyme, which helps oxygenate the body and is also proven to decrease activity of cancer-causing agents – there is a strong link between wheatgrass and cancer prevention. In fact, it’s so nutritious that an ounce of it is equal to 2 ½ pounds of vegetables.
