Did that heavy rain keep anyone else up last week? Ususally, I find rain calming to sleep to but for some reason there are a few nights when the rain is pounding down on my sky lights, I can’t sleep. I found myself dragging my body out of bed to take my daughter to school and for me that is a depressing feeling.
I dragged myself right from bed to the vegetable drawer knowing nothing could spark my energy quite like veggie juice. After years as a nutritionist, I feel so in touch with my body and I literally felt better just looking at all the beautiful, colorful vegetables in front of me. My eyes perched right upon some gorgeous beets and I knew a beet juice was just what I needed.
My family doesn’t love broccoli stalks, so when we have broccoli for dinner I chop the stalks and store them for juice or soups. They are also surprisingly sweet and add a lot of flavor. I paired the beets and the broccoli stalks with my “juicing core”: kale, celery, lemon & ginger.
This juice was so YUM. Truly the minute it hit my mouth, I felt like oxygen and energy was flowing through me. After all these years, that feeling still amazes me.

After being diagnosed with cancer when she was 32, Elissa Goodman explored holistic alternatives and combined them with traditional treatments and was able to beat the disease. Her husband wasn’t as fortunate; he succumbed to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma when he was only 45 after a regimen of doctor-prescribed chemotherapy and two bone marrow transplants. Her personal experience led her to realize the many ways in which nutrition and lifestyle affect our ability to deal with health challenges.
