Delicious Juice Recipe Using Kitchen Scraps!

Delicious Juice Recipe using Kitchen Scraps

One of my favorite ways to clean out the fridge and use up any extra produce is to juice it! You just need fruit, veg, and lemon/lime to make a delicious combo!

This juice isn’t fancy but it’s delicious, nutritious and loaded with antioxidants! It is super refreshing and will give you a nice little burst of energy after drinking it!

Kitchen Scrap Green Juice

You’ll need:

  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 apples
  • 1 pear
  • kale stems (I save these after making kale salads)
  • 2 broccoli stalks (these are great for juicing, save these too!)
  • celery tops, including the leafy part
  • handful parsley
  • 1 lemon (peeled)
  • 1 lime (peeled)

First wash the skin of your fruits and veggies. I always use this wash.

Then simply run all ingredients through a juicer (I recommend Breville). Makes 32oz.

Feel free to throw in or substitute whatever you have. Grapes, baby carrots, strawberries, even green beans! And, if you have backyard chickens like we do, be sure to give them the leftover pulp. They love it!

Raw Vegan Rainbow Roll

RAINBOW ROLL - Raw Veggie Sushi Recipe via Linda Wagner

Here in Austin, the weather is FINALLY starting to feel like spring! It’s been amazing to see the sun again and get to spend some much needed time outside. With warmer weather I always start to get questions on “how to lose weight and get in shape fast” and I always say my secret weapon is simply raw vegetables. Weather you juice them, blend them, or chew them, raw veggies are an essential part of cleansing and tonifying the body. Raw veggies are also loaded with amazing health benefits that will make you feel amazing from the inside out!

These beautiful Rainbow Rolls are one of my favorite healthy snacks and a great way to boost your raw veggie intake! These rolls are absolutely gorgeous and taste amazing! I admit, I used to be very intimidated with the thought of making any kind of sushi roll, but it’s actually super easy. Give yourself a few practice runs and you’ll get the hang of it in no time!

RAINBOW ROLL - Raw Veggie Sushi Recipe via Linda Wagner

This roll alone is bursting with nutrients to support cellular detoxification and cleansing:

  • Cucumber is rich in B vitamins, water, electrolytes, silicon and sulfur to support hydration, liver, kidney, skin, and immune system health.
  • Carrots provide antioxidants and vitamin A which helps the liver to cleanse toxins out of the body. Carrots also support the skin and help to create that beautiful GLOW.
  • Green & Purple Cabbage is low in fat, high in fiber, supports healthy blood pressure, and acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. It is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, B6, manganese, sulfur, and potassium. Cabbage also has well-known cancer preventative compounds lupeol, sinigrin and sulforaphane. They stimulate enzyme activity and inhibit the growth of cancer tumors. A Study on women showed a reduction in breast cancer when cruciferous vegetables like cabbage were added to their diet. (source)
  • Avocados are rich in vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, potassium, B5, B6, and vitamin E. They also contain high amounts of oleic acid which has been linked to reduced inflammation and been shown to have beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer!
  • Nori (seaweed) is surprisingly rich in protein – 100 grams of nori contain between 30 and 50 grams of protein, making it one of the plant world’s richest sources of protein! Nori is also naturally high in iron, iodine, vitamin A, vitamin C, thiamine, magnesium, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc, and potassium. It supports healthy cholesterol, acts as an anti-cancer agent (due to high amounts of vitamin C), supports healthy thyroid function, eyesight, and clear skin.

Who knew you could get that much nutrition out of a modest little veggie roll?!

RAINBOW ROLL - Raw Veggie Sushi Recipe via Linda Wagner

Raw Vegan Rainbow Roll

You’ll need:

This will make about 2 rolls, double, triple, quadruple your ingredients as desired!

Raw Veggie Sushi Rolls Place a sheet of nori shiny side down on a cutting board or sushi mat. Note, a sushi mat is extremely helpful but not 100% necessary.

At the bottom edge of your nori, layer on a small amount of each ingredient. Keep in mind, less is more for this step since most people tend to over-stuff. The more volume you have, the harder it is to roll.

Lift up the edge of the sushi mat closest to you with both thumbs then fold it over your ingredients, squeezing slightly to keep all the ingredients inside. Continue to roll your sushi until you get about an inch from the opposite end.  Raw Veggie Rainbow Sushi Rolls Wet your fingers with some water and then wipe the remaining edge of your nori. Then finish rolling. This step ensures that your roll will stick together.

Use a very sharp knife to cut into 1 inch slices.

If you are like me, it’s much easier to learn when you have a great visual so I’ve included this instructional video by my friend Russel James, The Raw Chef, he’s much better at explaining the process than me!

I know it seems intimidating at first, but I promise the process is actually quite easy and once you make a few rolls, you’ll get the hang of it and want to make it all the time!

I used this dressing to dip and it was DELICIOUS!! You could also use a spicy peanut dip if you like something a little thicker. Both are fabulous!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! I’ll be posting more raw food recipes through out the coming weeks. In the mean time, you can see all of my raw food recipes here.

Quinoa & Black Bean Detox Soup

Quinoa & Black Bean Detox Soup

Let me start off by saying these photos are very misleading. The soup looks kind of “blah” and uninteresting but I promise it is SOOOO good! Especially with all the cold weather we’ve been having, this is a super healthy soup that’s warming, comforting and good for you!

I also love this soup because it something that you can throw together any night of the week using whatever you already have on hand in your pantry. I know most people usually think of “detoxing” in terms of following some kind complicated meal plan or supplement regimen but I’ve honestly found that eating simply and nutritiously is the BEST way to detox.

Quinoa & Black Bean Detox Soup

Eating an abundance of alkaline rich foods (think vegetables and greens) will detox the body and make you feel and look amazing too!

This soup is loaded with veggies but feel free to modify by using whatever you already have on hand: broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, peas, green beans, spinach, kale, and turnips would also be lovely additions to this soup.

Beach Babe Juice Recipe for Weight Loss

Beach Babe Juice Recipe for Weight Loss via Linda Wagner

It’s crazy to think that it’s almost mid February!! Spring break is only a month away and with spring break usually comes beaches and warmer weather (thank goodness)!! As you know, I love juicing as my go-to for a quick slim down. Plus it makes you feel absolutely WONDERFUL both inside and out! I know most of us are typically focused on the vanity of health but there really is no replacement for feeling good internally!

This Beach Babe Juice aids in weight loss while acting as a detoxifier and appetite suppressant when drunk first thing in the morning.

Beach Babe Juice Recipe for Weight Loss via Linda Wagner

Here is a breakdown of nutrients and benefits of the Beach Babe juice.

The carrots provide antioxidants and vitamin A which helps the liver to cleanse toxins out of the body. Carrots also support the skin and help to create that beautiful GLOW.

The citrus in this juice provides the body with hesperidin and diosmin which are bioflavinoids found in citrus fruits like lemons, limes and oranges. These bioflavinoids support:

  • fat metabolism
  • healthy cholesterol levels
  • active metabolic function
  • healthy veins (great for bulging veins and varicose veins!!)
  • immune system function
  • inflammation

Beach Babe Juice Recipe for Weight Loss via Linda Wagner

This juice also contains blackberries and raspberries which are bursting with skin clearing antioxidants. They’re also jam packed with polyphenol antioxidants, according to Dr. Perricone. Polyphenols fight free radicals and regulate skin’s blood flow, giving it rosiness and a youthful glow. Berries are also rich in antioxidants and anthocyanins which are associated with a lower risk of certain cancers, urinary tract health, memory function, and healthy aging. They also contain vitamin C which supports the immune system. When I have berries that have been in the fridge too long, I always throw them in my juice recipes, they have amazing health and anti-aging benefits! 

Beach Babe Juice Recipe for Weight Loss via Linda Wagner

Romaine lettuce is full of vitamin C, vitamin K, and potassium and is also low in calories. It is an extremely alkaline food which results in faster cleansing in the body.

Cucumber is rich in B vitamins, water, electrolytes, silicon and sulfur to support hydration, liver, kidney, skin, and immune system health.

Fast Healthy Meal Ideas

I know many of us are constantly pressed for time. That is usually one of the top challenges people face when trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have faced these challenges myself and continue to learn, improvise and make it work! Here are some fast healthy meal ideas from my kitchen to yours. These are all unplanned, improvised meals that I made on the fly using whatever I had on hand. You can also follow me on instagram (@lovelindawagner) to see these tips and recipes in real time! I hope these inspire you to make it work, even when you are pressed for time!

Fast Healthy Meal Ideas

healthy beverages

Beverages (from left to right):

I’ve shared this Detox Tea recipe before but if you are pressed for time, simply pour hot water over thinly sliced lemons and ginger!

Bai5 is my new obsession!! It’s all natural, delicious, LOADED with antioxidants and only 10 calories per bottle! Sometimes you just don’t feel like drinking plain water and these are a great, healthy way to stay hydrated! I found the 5 flavor sample pack which has clementine, coconut, pomegranate, dragonfruit, and blueberry at Costco!

I love this Fat Dissolver Juice but when I’m pressed for time or don’t have all the ingredients on hand, I just make plain fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals that support healthy skin, weight loss, blood pressure, and fat metabolism!

healthy breakfast

Breakfast meals/Snacks:

I always have Ezekiel bread and english muffins on hand. They are so much more nutritious than regular white or wheat bread and digest cleanly and easily. I love the cinnamon raisin english muffins toasted then smeared with almond butter, sliced bananas, goji berries, cacoa nibs, and a drizzle of honey. If you don’t already have them, I recommend always having goji berries, cacoa nibs, and honey in the pantry. One bag of each the cacoa nibs and goji berries has lasted me almost two years so a little goes a long way! These superfoods add extra vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are wonderful for your skin and energy levels. They also will help to keep you full and satisfied longer! That being said, if you don’t have superfoods and are not interested in trying them, an ezekiel muffin with almond butter and sliced fruit is still fabulous!!

Cultured yogurt or kefir is another great thing to have on hand. Both are loaded with beneficial probiotics and make the perfect snack or breakfast. You can have it plain or add fruit and superfoods like I did. Again, just use what you have on hand. I had fresh berries (you could also use frozen), honey, and a sprinkle of bee pollen. Bee pollen is another one of those superfoods that will last a VERY long time. I can’t even tell you how long I’ve had mine! I keep it in the fridge to help it stay fresh. If you don’t have any fruit or superfoods, don’t worry, having your yogurt or kefir plain is still so much healthier than sugary cereal, a candy bar, or cookies! Having healthy items in the fridge and pantry just ensures that you make healthier choices 😉

I LOVE Nature’s Path hot oatmeal during the winter months. It’s just so warming and keeps me full for hours. I added sliced banana, raw almonds, goji berries, chia seeds and dried cranberries.

superfood pantry
My superfood pantry

*If you would like more info on getting started with superfoods, start here. Remember, do what you can with what you have. You don’t have to have superfoods to live a healthy lifestyle but they are something that you can keep in the pantry to give your everyday foods a little boost!! You can see all the superfoods mentioned in this article here and get $10 off your order with the code WAG472. Most of these items can also be found at your local health food store or Trader Joe’s!

healthy egg breakfast

Eggs:

Eggs are one of my favorite protein sources and another staple that I always have. They provide protein, omega fatty acids, and amino acids that support the health of your entire body! I love them sunny side up over ezekiel english muffins with whatever greens I have on hand, fresh tomatoes, avocado slices and lots of hot sauce! I have this for breakfast or lunch ALL THE TIME. It literally takes less than 10 minutes to make and tastes amazing!! If you need to take it to work or on the go, just be sure to cook the yolk completely so you don’t end up with a runny mess on your hands!

Another egg dish I love are fritattas (see recipe insipration here). I typically just use whatever leftover veggies I have and it always turns out great! Fritattas keep well as leftovers too!
healthy salads

Salads:

I always try to have salad ingredients on hand as well:

  • greens – romaine lettuce, kale, spinach, arugula, etc
  • fresh veggies – cherry tomatoes, avocados, shredded carrots, yellow squash, cucumber, purple cabbage
  • nuts/seeds/dried fruit – pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, slivered almonds
  • protein – usually whatever is leftover: grilled chicken, hard boiled eggs, salmon, steak

Just throw whatever you have together in a large bowl with your favorite salad dressing and you’ve got a super healthy meal in minutes!

healthy veggie burrito bowl

“Leftover” Bowls:

Another staple in our house is the “leftover bowl”. Basically you just make quinoa and top it with leftovers from the week! This one was leftovers from fajitas that we had made earlier. Quinoa, whipped black beans, charred onion & bell peppers, corn with chili, lime & cilantro, fresh avocado slices and grape tomatoes.

A big part of eating healthy is making sure you have healthy foods around you. It’s like the quote “surround yourself with only the people who are going to lift you higher”, the same applies to food. Surround yourself with the food that is going to take you toward your goals; toward the health and the body you want!

I hope these fast healthy meal ideas help to inspire you to be prepared and improvise with what you have! xo

Chopped Detox Salad Recipe

Chopped Detox Salad

Keeping to the theme of New Year’s detoxing, this raw Chopped Detox Salad is a great way to get your bod in tip top shape quickly! Raw veggies are packed with nutrition but they are also full of enzymes and LOADED with fiber which plays a vital role in weight loss!

Fiber is only found in foods from plants, such as greens, nuts, vegetables, and fruits. It passes through the body with very little change in the digestive system. That means that fiber provides few or no calories, in addition to having many health benefits.

Fiber provides many benefits. While maintaining the health of the digestive tract, it also lowers the risk of certain cancers, heart disease, and diabetes. It helps control the appetite, so it’s easier to keep weight in check. Because it is found only in plant foods, vegetarians tend to have very high fiber intakes, which may be one of the reasons vegetarians are generally healthier and slimmer than meat–eaters. (source)

Chopped Detox Salad

A high-fiber diet has many benefits, which include:

  • Normalizes bowel movements. Dietary fiber increases the weight and size of your stool and softens it. A bulky stool is easier to pass, decreasing your chance of constipation. If you have loose, watery stools, fiber may also help to solidify the stool because it absorbs water and adds bulk to stool.
  • Helps maintain bowel health. A high-fiber diet may lower your risk of developing hemorrhoids and small pouches in your colon (diverticular disease). Some fiber is fermented in the colon. Researchers are looking at how this may play a role in preventing diseases of the colon.
  • Lowers cholesterol levels. Soluble fiber found in beans, oats, flaxseed and oat bran may help lower total blood cholesterol levels by lowering low-density lipoprotein, or “bad,” cholesterol levels. Studies also have shown that fiber may have other heart-health benefits, such as reducing blood pressure and inflammation.
  • Helps control blood sugar levels. In people with diabetes, fiber — particularly soluble fiber — can slow the absorption of sugar and help improve blood sugar levels. A healthy diet that includes insoluble fiber may also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
  • Aids in achieving healthy weight. High-fiber foods generally require more chewing time, which gives your body time to register when you’re no longer hungry, so you’re less likely to overeat. Also, a high-fiber diet tends to make a meal feel larger and linger longer, so you stay full for a greater amount of time. And high-fiber diets also tend to be less “energy dense,” which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food. (source)

Chopped Detox Salad

Chopped Detox Salad

For the chopped salad you’ll need:

  1. a base of assorted greens – I used spinach, kale, arugula, and shredded purple cabbage
  2. veggies of choice – I used shredded carrots, broccoli, green bell peppers, diced radishes and yellow squash, halved grape tomatoes, and diced avocado
  3. nuts & seeds of choice – I used hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, and chopped almonds
  4. dried fruit – I used cranberries
  5. vinaigrette dressing of choice – I used my homemade Liquid Gold salad dressing recipe (see below)

Simply layer all your ingredients together in a large salad bowl, toss, and ENJOY!! This makes a great lunch or dinner meal and the best part?! You can have as much of it as you want!! There is no limit on the quantity! You can also mix it up by using different kinds of veggies.

Liquid Gold Dressing (adapted from The Raw Food Detox Diet):

  • 2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 whole cloves garlic
  • 3 Tbs fresh minced ginger
  • 3 Tbs Tamari (available through iherb.com or in the Asian section at your local health food store)
  • 2 droppersful NuNaturals liquid stevia (alternately you could use 3 heaping tsps raw honey)
  • 1.5 cups cold-pressed olive oil
  • handful of brazil nuts (about 8 total) – just 2 Brazil nuts a day will provide you with your daily selenium requirements!

Simply blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth. This will make about 4 cups.

I always use my VitaMix which is an amazing, state of the art, professional grade high speed blender. They are the ONLY blender that will get you the creamy consistency that you desire, especially when using nuts.  I love, love, LOVE my VitaMix and highly recommend investing in one if you are ready to make serious changes to your diet. I have had mine for almost 5 years and use it daily! If you’re not ready to drop that kind of cash, I also like Hamilton Beach which makes some great budget friendly blenders that you can get at your local Walmart or Target.

You can purchase your  Tamari and NuNaturals liquid stevia through iherb.com! They always have discounted prices and fast, shipping – they ship to over 180 countries, including APO addresses! Feel free to use my discount code WAG472 to get $5 OFF your first order or $10 off your first order of $40 or more!
