One of my 2014 goals was to try a juice cleanse, eat healthy and go to the gym. The juice cleanse started as a means to kick start my wedding diet and to undo all the holiday turkey weight accumulated. My juice cleanse of…

The Juice Box Vancouver is another cold press juice shop. Similar to The Juice Truck and the Juice Shop San Francisco. The Juice Box believes in the potent and powerful cleansing system inherit in each of our bodies. All we need are some healthy ingredients and let mother nature do her thing. Juicing has incredible healing power and juice cleansing has the potential to catalyze.
One of my favorite juice is the beet juice, particular The Juice Box HeartBeet juice. The name itself is very gimmicky and has a nice ring. Beet juice is great for blood building, warming, kidney cleansing potency. With a few simple ingredients of yours truly beets, apples, celery, parsley, lemon and ginger it is simply delicious and amazing. Beet Juice is something I like making at home also with my Breville JE98XL Two-Speed Juice Fountain Plus.
Of course, a Beaucoup Bakery fluffy and buttery creamy almond croissant makes it twice as good!
If you are interested and like me am pressed for time The Juice Box has a Subscription Based program where choose from either:
- 6 Juice/Week Subscription $248
- 8 Juice/Week Subscription $334

Juice Shop San Francisco is the best! I love fresh juices and clean eating as much as I love stuffing my face with a juicy burger with an fried egg on top. At home juicing is easy with my trusty Breville JE98XL Two-Speed Juice Fountain Plus. On the go, I relay on The Juice Truck.
On vacation, drinking cold pressed juices isn’t always easy to find. For all you Instagram Fiend, I first learnt about Juice Shop from my San Franciscan friend’s feed. So you would have to understand how ecstatic I was to find one located just around the corner in the Marina / Cow Hollow area. The shop is open 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 6pm Saturday / Sunday. It is directly across from Lululemon and is nothing more than a walk up booth size.
A+ Deep Green: Apple, Kale, spinach, parsley, romaine, cucumber, celery and lemon. The juice is sweet, despite the listed ingredients. It is bright and full of energy. Like how you would feel after a morning run!* This is one of their most popular drinks. Another is Bright Green.
Almond Drink: sprouted almonds, coconut water, vanilla, Himalayan salt and filtered water. This fragrant almond milk was smooth and creamy; filling yet not clinging to your throat. The salt definitely brought out the sweetness to the almonds itself.
Return the cute glass bottle to get your deposit back for $2. Or use them for little flower vases to decorate your desk!
*miserable before pounding the pavement but feel like a million bucks after sweating out a 5-10km run.

There are four flavors to Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shakes: French Vanilla, Chocolate, Berry and Natural. After looking up the ingredients and nutritional info I was excited to try it. Vega One is plant-based and is dairy free, gluten-free, soy free and contains contains no added sugar, artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. Vega Health Optimizer is packed with 100% RDI of vitamins & minerals. Learn more>
Each 15 grams servings of protein comes from pea, hemp, sacha inchi, and brown rice protein. The green blend equates to 3 servings of vegetables alone. Also depending on flavors, each serving is between 123 and 141 calories. Instructions says to mix with water, but I usually mix with unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk. Just to be clear, even the water mix was pretty tasty.
So far I have only tried the Vega One French Vanilla flavor and am in love with it. If you try to mix it by hand, the powder is very clumpy and does not dissolve easily. You will need to mix it vigorously, but because I have a Magic Bullet Blender, it takes only 30 secs to blitz.
Vega One Nutritional Shakes tastes absolutely delicious and doesn’t have that plastic taste that most whey protein shakes tend to exhibit. Also if you want to mix in fruits, ex blueberries, it is equally delicious and refreshing. Add chia seeds can also be added too.
Perhaps the only downside of Vega One is the cost: 69.99 / large tub. That is roughly $3.50 / serving. To stretch your dollar, perhaps you can use half serving scoop instead and add in extra chia seeds. As mentioned before, eating healthy is no easy chore. Vega One provides an all-in-one solution convenient solution.
I am not a vegan nor am I a vegetarian so I was initially skeptical whether this will be enough to satiate me and prolong my runs and workouts. Will I get hungry fast after a shake? Currently I am trying to tone up and also a three day workout per week. I definitely recommend Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shakes to anyone. Not just vegans or vegetarians. But to anyone who wants to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle by eating clean, while consuming all the necessary protien and nutrition into their diet. Also, another way of saving money is to shop the Sequel eStore for Vega, MacaSure, and ChlorEssence products and receive free shipping on all orders over $100. In additional, with a minimal purchase they will throw in some goodies. Ex. Yoga Hydrating Kit, etc…
Let me know what other recipes you’ve tried with your Vega One Shakes. Happy Healthy Eating Everyone!

Day 4 Wonder Soup Diet | Cabbage Soup Diet: Bananas and Milk / Yogurt. Sounds like a really bad day already!
Weighted myself on the scale and about 5 lbs has shed since Day 1. It was crazy since I’ve complete 3 days of this Soup Detox Diet. This seems to be the quickest way to lose weight by eating healthy foods.
So how to eat about 8 bananas? I can’t even imagine. Personally I’m not a big banana fan. So I had one this morning along with a blueberry banana almond milk smoothie. I don’t suppose a tiny bit of blueberries will drown my diet.
I also bought myself some plain Greek yogurt from Liberte Yogurt. And I subed milk with almond milk instead.
The best part of today was definitely drinking the Wonder Soup. I think it will be a VERY LONG time before I eat another banana.
But I have to admit the bananas and the calcium gave me the energy needed to run 5 km. After my run I topped it off with another blueberry banana almond milk shake.
On to Day 5 Wonder Soup Diet…
