This is a challenge to drink atleast 1 immune boosting juice a day for 7 days. Its not a detox. This is just drinking one juice a day. We are highly inspired by Vanessa from All about juicing and decided to bring it locally.
Its about making juicing a part of our every day life.
- This is a challenge for juicing once a day. With your regular meals and diet.
- This is a LIVE challenge from June 4th to June 10th.
- We will have a facebook group and you will receive a shopping list and recipes.
- Try to get a cold pressed juicer. If not a blender will do.
- Its FREE+FUN+HEALTHY.
Why do a juice challenge?
Yes, it's fun. But more importantly, juicing is great for your body. And it’s a really easy way to get good nutrition. It will make you strong and healthy from the inside out. But you need to juice often in order for it to make a difference in your life.
Juicing is part of a lifestyle. It’s not a quick fix and not just for cleanses. It’s a great everyday way to get complete nourishment for a healthy body.
It usually takes some discipline and support to make good changes in our lives. It’s also great to have a community to do it with. We’ve got that. Check, check.
This is a fun way to incorporate juice into your diet and join others that are juicing too.
If you commit to juicing at least once a day with us, here are some of the positive results you might expect:
- Better sleep. Wake up without the alarm clock, and never need a nap.
- Glowing, clear skin.
- Morning-till night energy
- A clearer, sharper mind.
- A happy digestive system.
- Less inflammation.
- Less bloat, less pain.
- Ageless looks.
- Boosted immunity.
The goal? To look and feel better effortlessly with the help of juice. And if you already feel great, that’s cool too. Let’s face it, challenges are just fun (well, mine are, anyway :). It's open to everyone and it's FREE.

How this juice challenge works (easy, fun & life changing)
We are going to drink one 8-20 ounce glass of freshly pressed juice at least once a day.
It can be fruit juice. It can be green juice. It can be a great veggie juice. It can even be a blended juice or a smoothie, if you don’t have a juicer or just want to change it up a bit. The shopping lists and recipes will be emailed to you. You can use mine or your own.
So that’s it. Drink one juice a day. Sounds yummy, right? Yay! If you want to kick it up a notch, drink 2 juices a day. Now that would be superb (wink, wink).
Drink your juice whenever you like.
This challenge is flexible so that anyone-including you- can do this. Some people juice and find themselves full so they don’t want a meal- totally okay and cool. Juicing can be your breakfast, lunch, dinner or super yummy snack. If you don’t like one of the recipes, no problem, make another that you prefer or one of your own.
During the challenge, I’ll be with you to give you tips and recipes.
They will aim to keep you motivated, inspired and on track. I know that even if you are super motivated it can be difficult to change your habits. For the first few days I’ll be easing you into the challenge by giving you the easiest juice recipes.
If you’ve signed up for our challenge (if you didn’t yet, do it now) I’m going to send you reminder emails each week with shopping lists, recipes and encouragement.
I want to encourage you to try and stay committed to the challenge on your Facebook and Instagram wall. Letting your friends & family know what you’re doing means they can support you. Check in with me daily to stay focused. Feel free to post photos on our wall and share the ingredients you used in your juice.
Please be sure to tag all your photos #allaboutjuicing and #21dayjuicingchallenge so we can see how you’re doing! I can’t wait to see how the challenge goes for you and celebrate once you’ve made the 21 days.
Juice Challenge FAQ's
Most people like to make new recipes everyday for variety. I recommend it because we should rotate what we eat on a daily basis to ensure we get a well-balanced amount of nutrients. If you make the same recipe two or three days in a row, however, I don’t think that’s the worst thing in the world. Try to go outside the box and experiment with new flavors.
This is a juicing challenge, so yes, you should have a juicer to fully participate. However, if you would like to make blender juices you can do that too. Blender juices can be just as good as juiced juices -- they are just different. The challenge would work the same if you are making blender juices, drink one a day.
To smoothie-fy any of my juice recipes, add water or coconut water to help the ingredients blend. You might also have to modify the amount of produce that would go in your blender juice. Traditionally a juicer needs more produce to make a glass of juice versus one that is made in a blender.
Juicers I like include the Omega Vert, The Omega single gear, The Green Star, The Hurom, The Champion and many of the Breville juicers. For a blender, I think the Vitamix is the best on the market.
Absolutely, this is not a cleanse. It’s a challenge to help you incorporate juicing into your diet once a day.
Many people stick to their regular diet. This is not a challenge to change your diet. However, you will notice more positive changes in your health if you take this time to eat better and take care of your body. If you want your body to cleanse and you’d like to use this to kick start a new chapter in your healthy-eating life, try embracing a vegetarian or vegan diet (more fruits and veggies!) and avoid all processed foods. Meats and processed foods slow down our body’s cleansing processes. A light, clean fruit and veggie diet is the most beneficial if you’re trying to turn your health around. This would include soups, salads, smoothies and raw foods recipes. More importantly, focus on clean eating. Avoid foods with ingredients that you cannot pronounce and are free of processed sugar.
If you don’t want to change your eating, don’t fret, it’s no problem. Juicing once a day will still do very positive things for your overall health. This challenge is a good step towards a healthier lifestyle + enhancing your beauty.
This often happens. Try substituting with something you do have that is similar. For example, if you don’t have kale, romaine lettuce can work well. If you are out of apples, try substituting a pear. Generally speaking, you’ll like the juices from produce that you like to eat. Always keep apples and carrots on hand as they are the most versatile produce for juicing and can be used to substitute many ingredients in juice recipes.
I don’t typically count calories so I don’t list out what it is for each recipe. When you start to incorporate clean, whole foods into your diet you’ll notice that calorie counting becomes less important.
You can get an average of the calorie counts for your fresh juice by going to a reputable nutrition or calorie counting site like nutriondata.com.
?There, you’ll want to find the calorie count (or other nutrition data, if that’s what you are looking for, too) for each fruit or vegetable.
You could, however, it’s best to make the majority of your juices vegetable based. While fruit juice contains natural sugar, which is different than processed sugar, it still is sugar. And sugar feeds the bad stuff in our body. That being said, fruit juices are very cleansing and very delicious. They also play a great role in our diet. In general, it’s best to eat your fruit and juice your vegetables. I do include fruit juices in these recipes simply because its easiest for those who are new to juicing and it’s usually the most loved juices when sharing with others.
This is the perfect amount of time to help you create a new healthy beauty habit, and to learn how to make different juices and techniques for beauty centered juicing. It’s also an optimal timeframe for your body to detox and absorb the good nutrition juicing brings on so you’ll start to see some positive changes.
