YOURTHERAPY JUICE RECIPES | FREE PDF

FREE Juice RecipesThose that have been following me over the past year have been exposed to my zest for juicing! While I dislike the clean-up process – the time, effort and money is found to be well worth it when I take my first sip.  Over the course of the year, I’ve found and tried numerous recipes.  Some, like the Mean Green and Dragon’s Blood (aka Targaryen Elixir) have had almost “instantaneous” effects such as: mental clarity, sustained energy boost and as aheadache remedy (Mean Green).

As you might guess from some of these titles, I’ve had some fun in the creation of some of the names.  On the FREE downloadable PDF, you’ll see my TOP10 juicing recipes – perfect for easy g0-to, fridge placement.

Acai Bowl Recipes

acai bowl

It has taken some time, but I’ve finally put together a few acai bowl recipe variations for you.  Many of you may know already but I’m a huge fan of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.  The exuberant and “Acai bowl fanatic” of the Gracie family is Rener Gracie; a strong mentor and (of course) jiu-jitsu brother of mine.  Without hesitation, I take his advice. (His Video)

The Acai Bowl does not disappoint.

After watching his video, and calculating what it would cost to have a proper Rener-style bowl of my own… it left me a little disappointed.  Knowing Rener as I do, I even expected the tweet he would send me when asking about this [see pic below].

Rener Acai Bowl Tweet

I’m (certainly) one that understands that quality food is important, as I am also a believer in the the above saying “You can pay now, or you can pay later” – but I’m also a practical guy who tries his hardest to make his hard-earned money stretch.

And here is how you can too!

TO BE MIXED (i.e. Vitamixer, Blender, Magic Bullet)

Average Joe’s /Josephine’s Acai Bowl Recipe

1/2 lb. Red Seedless Grapes (frozen)

2-3 tbs of Acai Powder

1 tbs of Cacao Powder (Optional)

1 handful of Coconut (Optional)*

[big-time ingredient for the Grandmaster!]

1-2 frozen Bananas (Optional)*

[bananas adds sweetness, creaminess & are inexpensive]

1 handful of Raisins (Optional)*

[your bowl may already be sweet enough, but add raisins for an added kick!]

TOPPINGS

Granola or Cereal

Fruit-On-The-Side (Optional)*

[Rener likes papayas, I like mangos]

Fruit-Mixed-In (Optional)*

[Blueberries, Rasberries or Blackberries might be a nice surprise!]

Acai Roots, Sambazon, Navitas and Sunfood have wonderful products and will be the most expensive part of the recipe (approx. $15 per 4 ounces).  You should keep in mind that if you’re looking for a “super fruit” you’ll be hard-pressed to find one better.  Obviously, the market is saturated with unfounded statements on this and that product- but the nutritional states of the acai berry kinda speak from themselves -

NUTRITIONAL CONTENT (via wikipedia.org)

BAP1RKA powdered preparation of freeze-dried açaí fruit pulp and skin was reported to contain (per 100 g of dry powder) 533.9 calories, 52.2 g carbohydrates, 8.1 g protein, and 32.5 g total fat. The carbohydrate portion included 44.2 g of dietary fiber and low sugar value (pulp is not sweet).[18] The powder was also shown to contain (per 100 g): negligible vitamin C, 260 mg calcium, 4.4 mg iron, and 1002 U vitamin A, as well as aspartic acid and glutamic acid; the amino acid content was 7.59% of total dry weight (versus 8.1% protein).

Hope you enjoy the new recipe(s)! The “variations” come through your experimentation.  Find the “formula” that works best for you and your taste buds.  If you’d rather spend the money and “Take it to the highest level” like Rener Gracie… by all means!

Let us know if you have any suggestions.  There’s “more then one way to skin a cat” (as the saying goes)… find your financially-friendly version and get that boost of nutrition you know your body craves!

Timed Handstand Challenge

Timed Handstands Joycetimed handstandsNow that the 30 day, 30 minute-a-day squat challenge (link) is over, I’ve turned my interest into the handstand.

Don’t get me wrong… I will always continue and exercise my squatting, but inspiration has struck!

ARE YOU ON INSTAGRAM ?

HASHTAG #TIMEDHANDSTANDS

odelia timed handstandNot too long ago, Odelia Goldschmidt (of Ido Portal’s camp) achieved a Herculian accomplishment; a 10-minute and 4 second handstand (against a wall).  For those that don’t understand what it’s like to be inverted for over 30 seconds – it’s torture.

Why would anyone want to be tortured? Because we like it!

These Long Isometric Holds (LIH) have been used for a long time – particularly in the martial arts.  But for people interested in creating and adding new movement patterns to their repertoire, the handstand holds (in my opinion) are fundamental, exciting, and empowering.

A NEW CHALLENGE

With my first time being 1 minute and 15 seconds, I doubt heavily that I’ll accomplish Odelia’s mark anytime soon.  My goal is to reach the 3 minute mark.  Each week I’ll be posting my new record time on Instagram.  For anyone wishing to follow with me in this challenge, please use the hashtag: #timedhandstands

Good luck and be safe!*

* Handstands are not for everyone! If attempting, make sure you know your body and potential risks associated.  You are 100% in charge of YOU.  It is very helpful and strongly recommended that you have a spotter… especially when pushing for those last few seconds!  Ultimately, push hard BUT STAY SAFE!
