Joe’s Juicing His Mean Green in the Philippines

By: Joe Cross

Today is my 47th birthday and I am feeling super lucky to be spending it in the Philippines where I’m currently launching Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. I’ve learned a lot while being here, and one of the most exciting things is finding out how much they LOVE juicing! I had a blast on the Morning Show with host Bernadeth Serbrano and host of the cooking segment Winnie Cordero. I typically make my favorite Mean Green Juice when I travel to different countries but the Philippines doesn’t have the same fruits and veggies readily available as other parts of the world so we came up with a Mean Green “Philippines Style” Juice! If camote tops and malunggay are available in your area then try it out. And if not, you can always make my Mean Green Juice!

Joe’s Mean Green Philippine Style
2-3 handfuls of camote tops
2-3 handfuls of malunggay
1 cucumber
2 celery stalks
1 green apple
1/2 lemon, peeled
Small piece of ginger root (1”/2.5cm), peeled

The image above shows me making it on the Morning Show. It was a hit!

Here’s another shot of me on set at the Morning Show…

My new friends in the Philippines gave me this delicious fruit basket for my birthday!

Thank you to all my friends in the Philippines for a great time. Juice on!

More than 20 million people around the world watched Joe Cross juice his way across America, losing 100 pounds and getting off medication in Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. The film ignited a juicing movement. Viewers around the world have been inspired to start juicing, lose weight and get healthy - and as a result of the film over 370 million glasses of fresh juice have been consumed, 370,000 tons of fruit and vegetables consumed, more than 24.8 million pounds of weight lost, and over 220,000 people are now medication free. Joe's second film, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 was released in November 2014. Through his journey and the lives of the people he meets throughout the film Joe shares all that he's learned about how to stay healthy in an unhealthy world, revealing that most of us really do have more control over of our health than we think - and that none of us are perfect, especially Joe himself! His book, The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet, hit the New York Times' best seller list in March 2014, and the companion guide The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Cookbook launched that summer.
