Coco Mojo and Maca Blend from Essential Living Foods are Two Great Products, Smoothie Recipe


There may be other brands of superfoods on the market that are more well-known and have wider distribution, but when it comes to quality, Essential Living Foods holds its own with anyone.

I have had long discussions with CEO Kipp Stroden about how and from where he sources his products, and I can assure you that he has done his homework. I trust him completely.

Two products that I believe are extremely well-formulated and have great taste are Essential Living Foods’ Coco Mojo and Maca Blend. Read more »

Cocobeet is a MUST-VISIT Organic Juice Bar in Boston


As a result of living in NYC but having grown up in Boston, I am quite aware of the difference between the two cities, in terms of the organic food and pressed juice offerings.

NYC has a ton and Boston has very little.

But with the recent opening of Cocobeet, ironically located between a Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts, it is an understatement to say that Bostonians are thrilled to have them there.

“On our second day of business, we sold 270 bottles of juice and had to close our doors because there was nothing left to sell,” Co-Founder Onur Ozkoc told me. Read more »

The Organic Food and Pressed Juice Scene in Nantucket

Recently, I spent time in Nantucket, an island off of Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and was thrilled to have access to plenty of great organic food and juice.

Below is a recap of Nantucket’s offerings for organic restaurants, pressed organic juice, organic farms, and organic markets.



As the only organic restaurant on Nantucket, I had lunch at The Green quite a bit. They sell great burritos, bowls, smoothies, juices, and breakfast items. Read more »

My Most Powerful Green Juice Recipe Yet


For me, there is no better way to start the day than to flood my body with tons of nutrients, enzymes, and minerals from a freshly-made organic green juice. And this juice here is my most powerful one, in terms of anti-cancer properties.

As I have explained in the past, even though I do buy pressed organic juice and run a Pressed Organic Juice Directory, there is nothing quite like making juice with your own hands, energy, and love.

Using the fantastic Omega J8006, this morning I made a juice with celery, kale, radishes, and broccoli sprouts.

Here is why I used each ingredient: Read more »

My Dinner at Choices Cafe in Miami, Florida


If you follow me on Facebook, you know that last week I took a short trip to Miami — I put up a bunch of pictures of the juice that I drank and the food that I ate down there.

What you didn’t see was food from a visit to Choices Cafe, an organic vegan restaurant in downtown Miami, right off of Brickell.

Given that several of my friends in the industry had told me about Choices Cafe and the restaurant has been listed in my Pressed Organic Juice Directory for quite some time, I was eager to go check it out. Read more »

My Best Juicing Advice – Keep It Simple


Ever since I launched the Pressed Organic Juice Directory a few months ago, people have been constantly asking me what I drink for juice.

In terms of pressed organic juice, I prefer green juice in a glass bottle. However, sometimes glass is not available. And sometimes straight green juice is not available either. Usually, this means that a juice bar has added apple for sweetness.

Despite the fact that I have plenty of places to buy pressed organic juice in my neighborhood, I have not abandoned juicing at home.  And I never will. Read more »

Back to Juicing with This Green Combination


You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting any pictures of juice lately.

The main reason for this is that I have been waiting for replacement parts for my Green Star juicer.

Well, they just came in and I immediately put the machine back to work.

The first combination that I made was kale, celery, broccoli sprouts, and lime.

In the past, I have written about juicing with broccoli sprouts and use them because of the tremendous amount of nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes that sprouts provide.

So, I went with the broccoli sprouts and also added a touch of lime juice, something that I rarely use. Limes give green juice a kick of tartness and help to provide a very interesting flavor profile. Read more »
