Jesswink

The brilliant writer Emily Alford did my makeup for this pic. And she just finished her novel. She’s the basically the best.

Do you like free yoga? Aromatherapy yoga? How about I give you a tarot reading? Would you like a mini-channeling session with Igor? Are you a fan of juice and kombucha? Into DIY? Ever wonder what your aura looks like? If you answered yes to any of these, come on over to Brooklyn’s Family of Light Holistic Center in Ditmas Park on 1/17 and enjoy the open house! We want to reach out to the community and have a lovely day. It’s one of my very favorite places in the city, and I bet you’ll love it too. Plus you can pick up some beautiful crystals, mala beads, and other jewelry in the gift shop. Check out the poster for more details. Hope to see you! *Wink*

Emily Alford has some fancy juice cleanse recipes for you on The Daily Meal!

Emily wrote a great article on juice cleanses and lots of recipes that look delish! And a couple of the juices I posted are in there too– hi Fragrant juice & Pizza juice! I’m so proud of you!

Juice for Emily: favorite juice fast recipes

My friend Emily Alford, who’s working on a freaking amazing novel, asked me for some juice fast recipes so I figured I should actually use this blog for what I intended, which is to create a resource for writers and artists to support their creative life with self-care through clean diet, yoga, meditation, frolicking… etc. Juice fasts are a great way to cleanse your system without getting the rough stuff that water fasts come with, like dizziness, low blood sugar, and general rage and unhappiness. They are nutrient-rich and keep you happily hydrated while giving your digestive system a break and giving you a fresh start and consistent energy. Emily asked me for recipes when she was actually in a Whole Foods, but I was at a talk by the literary agent Warren Frazier and didn’t understand the urgency of the request until about 12 hours later. Erm… so I made blog. 

Here are my top favorite juices:

Clean juice

2 zucchini (or cucumbers)

2 apples

1 stalk of celery

juice of half a lemon, squeezed (if it’s a Meyers lemon you can throw it in rind and all)

1 bunch mint

1 stalk of fennel

 

Energizing juice

8 carrots

4 oranges

1 apple

1 handful of unpeeled kumquats (optional)

 

Pizza juice (this is a disgusting name… please call it something else)

4 tomatoes

1 small clove of garlic

2 stalks of celery

1 handful of basil

1 small handful of oregano

2 carrots

juice of 1/2 a lemon

salt and pepper to taste

 

Sweet juice

1 cup of spinach (or any green of choice)

1 cup of grapes

1 apple

2 oranges

1 nectarine

 

Fragrant juice

4 pears

1-2 stalks of lemongrass

1/2 a pineapple

1 cup of grapes
