How-to: A Juicing Party

Over the break I had a juicing party.

Juicing Party:  The gathering of friends who juice fresh veggies and fruits together, to make well… JUICE!ad

Sorry, this is not a alcohol related party. Though you can throw some in, I’m not telling. LOL

So this was my first juicing party, and I didn’t really know what to do. However everything turned out beyond great. So for anyone who is interested in throwing a juicing party, here are some of the steps I took to make it happen.

Grocery Shop.

I bought plenty of fruits and veggies. This included 4 Pineapples, 2 Green Apples, 2 Red Apples,  Lemons & Limes, 2 Mangos, Spinach, Kale, Green Grapes, Carrots, 2 Cantaloupes, Strawberries, and Tangerines.

I also bought the ingredients for the healthy snacks/desserts/entree. These foods included: Chicken Kabobs, Skinny Popcorn, Black Bean Chips, Snap Pea Crisps, Healthy Tortilla Chips, Fruit Kabobs, Oatmeal Cookies, and Healthy Brownies.

kjkIt is critical to provide these healthy snacks, desserts and entrees for the guest. Having a juicing party is a fun way to get the people you care about invested in healthy foods. Make sure your snacks are tasty and nutritious. My brother fell in love with my healthy oatmeal cookies and one of my besties loved the Snap Pea Crisp snack.

Provide a beautiful layout.

With the help of a friend, I cut up all the fruits in veggies and made an inviting food layout on my kitchen table. The beautiful colors of all the fruits and veggies provided, built my guest excitement. I also added my healthy snacks to the table.They couldn’t resist. 

Before the juicing started my best friend made chicken and shrimp kabobs. The perfect healthy entree to start of a PARTY.

The juicing begins.

All of my guest filled their cups up with the fruits and veggies they liked and one by one began juicing. It was really fun. So sweet. So simple. So refreshing. Music was definitely booming in the back round while smiles, deep talks and good vibes filled the room.

Time for dessert.

I baked my healthy oatmeal cookies and my bestie Jazz, made some healthy, yet not so healthy brownies. Not a cookie nor brownie was spared.

I encourage you to have a juicing party. Everybody loves good clean fun every now and then : )

The Alternative: Healthy Pizza

Healthy Pizza!!!!!!!!!!! It’s quick, it’s easy and most importantly it’s delicious. I made this religiously this school semester. So follow along for the recipe.

IMG_7490IMG_7492IMG_7493IMG_7496IMG_7504IMG_7507

Ingredients: pizza sauce, whole grain pizza crust, mozzarella cheese, peppers, spinach.

Get a pizza sauce with low sodium and mozzarella  with low fat.

Step One: Put oven on broil at 350 and put the crust in upside down so that the bottom can get stiff. Leave in there for about 3 minutes if fully hot.

Step Two: Take crust out of the oven and place it right side up on a pan. Then spread tomato sauce on top of the crust. You sprinkle basil on top if you like.

Step Three: Sprinkle half of the the peppers on next.

Step Four: Sprinkle mozzarella cheese. May sprinkle basil on top to boost flavor (but not needed).

Step Five: Add toppings. I put on the rest of the peppers and  a bunch of spinach on top.

Step Six: Sprinkle more mozzarella cheese.

Step Seven: Put pizza in the oven on broil of 400 degrees. Leave it in for about two minutes and then take it out.

Step Eight: Let it cool, then EAT!!!
