Favorite Juice Recipe?
Sunshine State of Mind

How do you stay active?
I take a class two or three times a week, usually something new from boxing to pilates to keep it interesting! If I don’t have time I’ll run on the treadmill for 30 minutes to get my heart pumping.

Why is juicing important to you?
My immune system has always been bad. As a kid, my parents never took me anywhere because I would be sick. Without fail I used to catch a heavy fever twice a year and will be ill for at least a week. After juicing my fevers never came back again, and also no more colds during flu season. The abundance of micronutrients in drinking juice keeps my immune system strong and healthy. Not only that, but it’s also been amazing for clearing my skin!

Morning yoga, Biking, Snowboard, take the Stairs (live on the 3rd floor)

Why is juicing important to you?
Juicing has allowed me to intuitively reset my body and listen within to my baseline. I love that I can take in more nutrients, cut down chronic inflammation, and support my body. I slowly started eating better a decade ago to help ease migraines and headaches and realized all the amazing other benefits from increased energy to better sleep. I’ve worked with thousands of people who have juiced through Joe Cross and hands down it’s been one of the best things to watch people’s lives transform. This juicer is a game changer! It’s why I joined the team to help more people find a connection with their heath and take it one step at a time.

Favorite Juice Recipe?
My favorite juice recipe is Joe’s Mean Green with a twist. I typically add extra leafy greens about 2-3 bunches (kale, spinach, chard, arugula), parsley, lots of extra ginger and/or turmeric.

How do you stay active?
I enjoy the outdoors with my wife and dog, walking and hiking on fun adventures. I love playing golf, basketball and other sporting activities.

Why is juicing important to you?
Juicing to me is a symbol of good health and I love the flavors of mother nature and how they make me feel after drinking them. I cannot go a couple of days without juice because my body craves the micronutrients and flavors. Over 7 years ago, I started incorporating 3 and 5 day juice fasts a few times a year to help my body reset by letting my digestive system rest, while flooding my body with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Juicing has become a part of my routine for me and my family, and adding at least 1 juice to our diet everyday has helped us to maintain a healthier lifestyle.

Favorite Juice Recipe?

I love hydrating easy to drink green juices… the Restorative Green or the Healing Green are delicious and have lovely healing properties. I tend to add less of the sweet fruits than the recipes call for and add more cucumber or I top up with filtered water. 

How do you stay active?

I take long walks everyday. I use the time to catch up on podcasts or I drag my husband along so we can chat.

Why is juicing important to you?

Juicing makes me feel better. I think the combination of flooding my body with diverse micronutrients and getting really hydrated is key to my health. I have been juicing for over thirteen years now and it is a key part of my daily self care routine.

Favorite Juice Recipe?
Joe’s Mean Green. I go off the recipe book on this, so it’s my own custom juice.

  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 handfuls of romaine or spinach
  • 1 lemom
  • 2 mint stems stalks with leaves
  • 1 inch ginger

How do you stay active?
I pick up heavy things and put them down. I also have an unhealthy obsession with the stair master.

Why is juicing important to you?
Because of the way it makes me feel. No matter how hard I fall off the wagon, a big ol glass of green juice picks me right back up. It’s also a reminder to not take your health granted.

Favorite Juice Recipe?
My own concoction called “Pear Fennel Delight”. 2 Pears, 1 Fennel Bulb, ¼-½ grapefruit and a little ginger for a kick. I like it because I can increase or decrease certain elements depending on the season or my mood. It has such a complex flavor profile and I am in love with fennel.

How do you stay active?
Walking my 2 dogs, swimming, hiking, biking, yoga, and getting into rebounding to shake things up!

Why is juicing important to you?
It is a great way to incorporate seasonal energies and nutrients that your body requires - nature knows best! I started to get into gardening recently and it is so fun to grow and appreciate your own food. The less time the food is sitting around the more prana it has, and to experience that first hand is such a gift.
