On October 1st, 2007, the course of my health changed forever.
I still remember how I was floating from excitement of having discovered something that is so drastically different from everything I knew about health and yet SO natural, such common sense, so perfect, such genius, and oh so accessible to me all these years.
I had discovered green juicing, you see, and on that day, I ordered my first juicer and started my fun journey into health on the most delicious path beyond my wildest imagination. [Read more…]
In January (2012), I embarked on another 5-day juice fast with my friend and partner in crime, Arvind Devalia. In this blog post, I recount the highlights of my fast, and how it was so different from my first 5-day juice fast recounted here.
Then I will tell you about my decision to bring a juicing intensive program to my beloved green juicing community and how you can participate.
FYI: This is a long, epic and massive blog post with pictures, video, and a LOT of information around juice fasting and green juicing. Let’s get to it! [Read more…]
After 8 months of a strictly vegan diet, one day, I decided it was no longer for me. Here’s the story behind that decision.
When I was growing up, I could put eating in two category: you either ate regular foods or you were on a diet. When we moved to the US, I discovered the world of the American diet system before I even came to know the American food system and for someone from Iran and Turkey, it was fascinating to say the least. I would honestly admit how I felt about the standard American food if I only knew what on earth it entails! I don’t think anyone can accurately describe “American food” to me.

September 2011 was my 4-year anniversary since my first green juice, and I wanted to celebrate the occasion and what better way to celebrate than to share the gift of green juicing and all its benefits with my darling readers, you?
In December 2011, I wrote a comprehensive guide to green juicing, with a juice fast guide plus
the only 10 recipes you will ever need for your green juicing journey!
Quite simply, green juicing changed the way I look at my body, my health and my overall well-being.
Remember that in order to start green juicing, you need a good juicer, and I highly recommend the Green Star Elite Juicer by Tribest. This is an investment that will pay for itself in your health a thousand times over!
In the video above, I share with you my exciting green juicing journey, including the lapses, the ups and downs, the changes in my body and in my life, which are all natural and part of the process and through it all, how and why I have always come back to green juicing and consider it an integral part of a health-conscious life.
As part of this big celebration, I wanted to help you start your own green juicing journey. Even though you will find a lot of information on the subject here on the blog, I think with smart habits, sometimes, we need reminders and bite size nuggets that is delivered to us regularly to nudge us in the right direction. Green juicing is a smart habit but a tough one to maintain.
Momentum for smart habits comes and goes after the initial excitement wanes. What do you do to keep it going strong? How do you stay on top of your smart habits?
Well, for one, I say join this totally-free-and-fabulous exclusive newsletter where I bring you bite-size nuggets of juicing knowledge, experience, and how-to every other week for a year (oh yes, I’ve been writing and writing fresh, JUICY, new content for days on end for us!)
Here’s to working together to keep the momentum going strong because our bodies deserve the best care and love that we can give them. And here’s to green juicing, baby!
