101 Smoothies in One Recipe Book

There’s no denying that I love juice. But ‘Joe the Juicer’ loves smoothies too! They’re a great way to get more plants and enjoy some of my favorite foods you can’t put through a juicer – like nuts, superfoods, bananas, chocolate! Since I love smoothies, I wanted to share my favorite recipes with you, so I compiled them together – all 101 healthy, mouthwatering smoothies –  in my newest recipe book

Like my earlier book, 101 Juice Recipes, my smoothie book features 101 delicious recipes that are 100% vegan. Recipes are categorized by color, you can refer to a key that indicates what smoothies are best for fighting specific conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, etc., and all of the nutrition facts are included for each one.

The smoothies in this book were perfected in the Reboot Kitchen to not only taste amazing but to also be high in nutrients. We even reached out to some of our favorite chefs and juice bars around the world to share their best recipes. I reckon we have quite a delicious selection, and I hope you love it as much as I do.

If you’re new to blending, don’t worry, our book includes detailed tips on how to prepare your ingredients to help save time in the kitchen and make sure the taste is just right. (And if you don’t have a blender and would like to make smoothies, be sure to review our blender buying guide.)

Joe Gives Thanks

G’Day Rebooters,

Given that today is Thanksgiving, I’d like to share a few things I’m thankful for with you. When I sat down to think about this, in between my Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 Tour events in the UK & Ireland  that are taking place right now, I started writing the usual suspects: my mum and dad, my family, my friends, my Reboot team, everyone I work with in different areas of the world, you — my incredible community members who inspire me every day, and of course those of you who have supported the Reboot mission by buying our movies, reading our books, making recipes in your own kitchens from my cookbooks, downloading our apps to your phone, and sharing all of these with your friends. I guess you could say I have a lot to be thankful for on this holiday.

Then I started thinking and thanking big. I am thankful for autumn, for spring, for water, the sun, and for life.  I’m thankful for Alexander Graham Bell, Steve Jobs, the guy who invented ice cream, and I can’t forget the woman who invented chocolate!

And then I paused and realised, I can’t make a list of all the things I’m thankful for because I’d be writing for the rest of my time on this beautiful planet we call home. 

So I simply want to say that I’m truly thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Joe

Have You Seen Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 Yet?

It’s been one full day since Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 became available for sale and rent all over the world. I’m honored and humbled by the outpouring of positive facebook posts and messages, tweets and instagram comments I have been receiving from those of you who have already watched it over the past 24 hours!  As you might imagine, I woke up this morning with a big smile on my face. 

No need to explain why I’m happy – two years of hard work by my team has officially come together with the release of this film; I am blessed to be surrounded by a community of Rebooters (all of you) who inspire me every day; and some of yesterday’s nerves have settled a bit. I was awaiting your judgment, and so far, so good. And I thank you for that. Nerves are of course still lingering because there’s still heaps of people who haven’t seen it yet. 

I’m often asked by thousands of people, how can I help and what can I do to help other people? Most of the time my response is, “I really appreciate it, I’ll let you know if something comes up.” Well something’s come up. It’s called Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 and you can help me by buying the film if you haven’t yet and sharing with your friends, family, coworkers and social media network that Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 is out and ready for the world to see.

JUICE ON!

Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead Is Coming Back to Canada

In April of last year, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead made its debut in Canada followed by a tour from me where I got to travel around Canada to talk with folks about my Reboot journey. I had a blast while I was there and was humbled by the amazing feedback I received from everyone I met. Now, I’m happy to say that if you’re in Canada you’ll have the chance to watch Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead again on the Food Network Channel! Save the following dates:
Friday, January 31st at 7:00 pm
Saturday, February 1st at 10:00 am

I’m looking forward to you all tuning in!

Juice on!

“101 Juice Recipes” Book is Now Available. Buy it today!

I am thrilled to announce the arrival of our latest recipe book, 101 Juice Recipes. Whether you are planning a Reboot, are new to juicing and need to learn the basics, or you’re a regular juicer and simply want to spice up your daily routine – this is the book you need.

The collection of recipes in the book represents months of tasting, testing and getting creative in the Reboot Kitchen. We’ve included old favorites from my Mean Green to surprising new combinations you won’t have seen before (can you resist the sound of the Mexican Fiesta or Spicy Peach Carrot?), these delicious recipes will inspire you to get creative with your juicer.

All recipes are color-coded so that you can easily pick a green, yellow, orange, red or purple juice, helping ensure you’re covering a wide spectrum of nutrients. Icons also help you identify the recipes that are quick to make, those that are Reboot friendly, and the best juices to drink around a workout. If you have a health condition, we’ve added a key indicating what juices best support your body in easing symptoms and can help fight specific conditions such as inflammation/pain, arthritis, high cholesterol, etc. You’ll also find guidelines for cleaning and storing your fruits and veggies, plus a super useful substitution chart if you want to swap out certain fruit and veggies.

I’m a huge juice fan, but have been stuck in a bit of a leafy green, carrot, beet and pear recipe rut lately (always with plenty of my favorite ingredient, ginger – I can’t get enough). Are you anything like me, or have you already tried juicing a sweet potato or parsnip? Have you dared to experiment with jalapeno or chili pepper, and know when best to add basil, mint, or rosemary? How about a dash of pumpkin pie spice or garam masala? This is the book that will tempt you to try, especially when you see the mouth-watering photographs that accompany every recipe.

I can’t wait to get into the kitchen and juice up a “Mediterranean Summer” after my next workout or enjoy a Sweet Potato Pie to satisfy my sweet tooth. Hope you all enjoy the book as much as I am!

Buy the book: 101 Juice Recipes in our store today!

It’s also available as an eBook (iTunes, Kindle, Nook) and App (exclusively on iTunes).

A Look at Joe’s Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead Tour in Canada

Today is my last day of my Canadian tour. It’s been a fantastic two weeks and I want to thank all of you who have made an effort to come out and have a juice with me.

Watch One of My Favorite Films Online for Free (Limited Time Only)

The health and nutrition world is full of amazing teachers and products that are making a difference. Over the last 12 months there has been one program in particular that stands out in my mind and is making a huge impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of people across the globe – the Hungry For Change documentary. 

This time last year, good friends of mine James and Laurentine from Food Matters released their new film, Hungry For Change, in a free worldwide online premiere.  Hungry For Change exposes shocking secrets the diet, weight loss and food industry don’t want you to know about. Featuring interviews with best selling health authors and leading medical experts plus real life transformational stories from those who know what it’s like to be sick and overweight. I’m featured in it too along with these incredible experts:

In the first 10 days, over 453,000 people in over 100 countries watched the film online for free! At Team Reboot, we believe in the Hungry For Change message and wish to help it continue to reach as many people as possible. By working together we can help educate, enlighten and empower our friends, families and beyond. Once a critical mass of people understand this way of living we have created the potential for serious change in the way the world eats and connects with each other. 

I’m excited to share the good news that starting March 21st this year, they are doing it all again – but this time, bigger and better than before! This year, the Hungry For Change free screening event includes the full length film, detox recipes, take action videos and a live Q&A call that will truly empower you to take your health into your own hands.

Find out more details and sign up for the free screening event by entering your email address

During this free event you will discover: 

  • How to navigate your supermarket – what to buy and what to avoid
  • The real truth behind “DIET”, “SUGAR-FREE” and “FAT-FREE” products
  • How to overcome food addictions and cravings
  • Why fad diets don’t work
  • What food additives to avoid and how to read labels
  • What is fat and cellulite and how do we get rid of it for good
  •  The most effective detox and cleansing strategies
  • How to eat for clear eyes, glowing skin and healthy hair

I encourage you to join and share this message with everyone you know.

Joe’s Juice Box – March 8, 2013

Joe's Juice Box
This is my chance to get up on the proverbial soapbox and share musing and interesting links from around the web. What’s up this week:

  1. My friend and nutritional expert, Alex Jamieson, who is also featured in an upcoming episode from The Joe Show, recently confessed to her community that after 13 years, she is no longer vegan:  http://alexandrajamieson.com/blog/. I’m a strong believer that our lifestyles and our diets do not need to be determined by a specific title – vegan, vegetarian, paleo, pescatarian. Don’t label yourself, don’t make it all-or-nothing. Find a diet that works for you. Everything in moderation along with lots of fruits and veggies. Good on ya Alex!
  2. And speaking of finding a diet that works for you, Mark Bittman is featured in Outside Magazine discussing why he decided to go vegan until dinner time. It’s a great article where he questions: How do you get people to turn the way they eat upside down, so that the majority of daily calories come from fruits and vegetables? How do we return to the notion that meat, fish, poultry, cheese, and dairy should be designated as occasional treats, not staples? Check out his plan here: http://www.outsideonline.com/fitness/nutrition/Real-Men-Love-Kale.html
  3. NYC-based Well and Good features interesting articles on a daily basis and last week the one on HPP juices caught my eye.  HPP is a way of pasteurizing juice so the bacteria are killed but not all the good enzymes. (Reboot Your Life Juices in Australia are HPP.) Some in the juice world say fresh juice is the only options, others advocate for HPP.  Of course fresh juice is best. But if you don’t have time to juice or are not conveniently located next to a juice bar, you can have store bought HPP juice.
  4. This is a scary one! Flame Retardant in your Mountain Dew? Drinking a soda? Check the ingredient list and then check out this article “Dear Clean Plates What is Brominated Vegetable Oil” for another reason to choose juice over soft drinks.
  5. If you’re struggling to get your kids to eat their veggies, well good news. Australian scientists have discovered one new trick — cook veggies the way kids like them best. It turns out they are just like Goldilocks — they like them just right. That means not too mushy and not too crunchy. Check out my article on Huffington Post to help you get your kids eating just right: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/reboot-your-life/if-you-want-your-kids-to-_b_2805968.html
  6. Does drinking wine seven nights a week sound enticing to you? Well the New York Times featured research that found 30 percent of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease can be prevented in people at high risk if they switch to a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil, nuts, beans, fish, fruits and vegetables, and even drink wine with meals.  http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/26/health/mediterranean-diet-can-cut-heart-disease-study-finds.html?hp
  7. Going gluten-free is all the rage these days, and for obvious reasons, but why is it so much more prominent now than it was 50 years ago? This New York Times article breaks it down for you: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/24/opinion/sunday/what-really-causes-celiac-disease.html?ref=opinion&utm_source=buffer&buffer_share=9ab39&_r=0
