Maintenance – New Book – Crazy, Sexy Diet by Kris Carr

This is a new book on the market that I just bought.  I am loving it! (although don’t leave it around for younger ones to read because it does have quite a bit of bad language….reminds me a bit of ‘Skinny Bitch”).

I was first introduced to Kris Carr a few years ago when she appeared on Oprah to talk about her documentary, “Crazy, Sexy, Cancer”.  She talked candidly about her quest to battle her cancer with nutrition.  What a warrior!

Her book is fantastic and I love learning new things and also being reminded of habits I want to continue.

Kris is a queen juicer and inspired me to dust off the old juicer and start incorporating some green juice into my diet (her book talks in detail about all the benefits).

Here she is with her green juice.

Each day this week I have enjoyed 16 oz of pure energy (usually 8 oz in the morning and 8 oz in the afternoon).

Here what I’ve been using:

4 leaves of kale or red chard

1 cucumber (I peel mine to get rid of the waxy peel since they are not organic)

1-2 carrots

1 celery stalk

1 apple

This will generally give me about 16 oz.  I store half of it in a small canning jar with the lid on tight (trying to avoid too much air with help the enzymes to not break down as quickly).

There are lots of different juicers out there (which Kris covers in the book).  I use this one from the Juice Lady and it works great.

Love the book, love the green juice, love the spreading of the word of good nutrition – nice work Kris Carr!
