JUICE SPOT NEWS AND UPDATES FROM THE WORLD OF JUICING
SUPER JUICE! The month of November is widely recognised as ‘Movember’ in the UK, as thousands of people don a ’tash to raise money for the fight against prostate cancer. So here at Juiced! we thought we’d go balls out and ask Jason for an exclusive Movember juice – and here it is! Pineapple 1/2 Beetroot 1 Pear 1 Pomegranate 1 Ice small handful
Juice the pineapple, beetroot and pear. Pour the freshly extracted juice into the blender along with the pomegranate seeds and ice. Pop the lid on and then blitz for 20-30 seconds or until smooth.
TOP POM JUICE TIP HOW TO REMOVE POMEGRANATE SEEDS
1. Roll the fruit on an even surface using the flat of your hand to loosen the seeds inside. 2. Score around the middle of the pomegranate and then tear it open into two halves. 3. Hold each half over a bowl (seed side facing down) and then tap the skin side with a wooden spoon (or something similar) to release the seeds.
There have been many positive studies on pomegranate juice and prostate cancer, so it’s no surprise this wonderful fruit features in this special Movember recipe. In order to make it even more potent, I’ve added the nitrate and iron rich juice of raw beetroot and soluble fibre rich pear juice. I’ve also added freshly extracted pineapple juice. This drink provides a wonderful enzyme called bromelain, which helps to break down excess proteins and also gives it a rich creamy head – in one mouthful you’ll have an instant ’tash! If your fella really fancies joining in, keep the razor in the cupboard and raise some cash for a worthy cause.
YEE-HAW! THE JUICE RANCH SET FOR 2017 We’re super excited to announce the creation of a new Juice Master retreat, The Juice Ranch in the Algarve. Slated for a late 2017 opening, this sister property to Juicy Oasis and Juicy Mountain will be built over 40 acres and will incorporate two gorgeous lakes. The Juice Ranch will include individual rooms on stilts that will allow retreaters to slide straight into the pool! Also coming up will be a dedicated sports zone, pitch & putt, a zip wire above Freedom Lake (the place to let everything hang out), plus exciting treatment facilities. Jason says: “We’ve finally got to do all the things we want to do, without any space restrictions. We’re all big kids really, and The Juice Ranch will be packed with tons of fun stuff to make your detox even more enjoyable.” We can’t wait to pack our stetsons and go west!
SNACK ATTACK When you’re on the move, looking for a snappy snack, make sure you’re good to go with a Juice in a Bar packed in your bag. Try a Berry Boost, with super fruits and friendly bacteria, infused with the natural sweetness of raw dates and smooth crushed almonds, or a Veggie Boost, packed with healthy veg, plants and algaes. Or alternatively grab a Simply Nude Healthy Snack Bar – available in Orange & Apricot flavour, a new scrummy Cashew & Cocoa flavour has also been added to the range too – delicious goodness on the go.

7lbs in 7 Days knocked The Da Vinci Code off the top spot!
Happy 10th BIRTHDAY to the most successful
juicing plan on earth Itâ€™s time to blend a performance-packed super-juice and raise our glasses to the worldâ€™s #1 best-selling juicing book 10
7LBS IN 7 DAYS
JUICY FACTS ABOUT 7LBS IN 7 DAYS 1. 7 lbs in 7 Days was the first-ever juicing book to reach #1, knocking The Da Vinci Code off the top spot... 2. S ince then, 7lbs in 7 Days has stayed at #1 in its Amazon category for almost 10 years! 3. W hen 7lbs in 7 Days was launched as an app, it went to #1, ousting Jamie Oliver off the top spot at the app store. 4. 7 lbs in 7 Days is unequivocally the most successful juice diet book of all time.
5. S ince its publication, 7lbs in 7 Days has sold more than three million copies – that's an awful lot of weight loss! 6. T he catchy title is best suited to the English weight system – 3.5 kilos in 7 Days, doesn't sound quite the same. 7. Model Katie Price made the book famous after losing 28lbs in three months. Jason still credits Katie with the book's original rise to fame.
Ja s o n o n...
THE BOOK THAT STARTED IT ALL
When I sat down to write 7lbs in 7 Days I never envisaged it would sell millions of copies, be translated into several languages and transform the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world. I also didn't envisage that when it was first launched that it would be the book to finally nudge The Da Vinci Code from the #1 spot! It makes me incredibly proud that in its 10th year, the book/app/plan still remains the go to ‘Juice Cleanse’ for so many people. 7lbs in 7 Days isn’t a ‘quick fix’, as the title appears to suggest, but rather a catalyst to lifelong change. It helps anyone beginning their juicing journey to find their way around the subject in an understandable and informative way. It comes with advice on how to break
bad habits and make good ones as part of a new way of life. It isn’t only about putting great things into your body, it’s about shifting your thinking too. 7lbs in 7 Days is a well thought through plan and it was around long, long before the many, many ‘quick fix copycats’ out there today. It’s not just about living on any juice for seven days, it’s about the right juices and blends for seven days. The results will not only be weight loss, higher energy levels and clearer skin, but possibly freedom from the dieting trap forever. I highly recommend the book and the app which has daily coaching that can make all the difference.

It’s been 15 years in the making, after repeatedly being asked by juicing fans around the world, Jason Vale has written his first-ever recipe book. Packed with healthy makeovers of classic dishes – including plenty of ‘comfort food’ favourites that are perfect for the season ahead – Juiced! shares a sneak peewwk of some of Jason’s delicious and nutritious meals. It’s time to grab your apron and get cooking!
‘No Dough’ Hallou mi and Basil Pizza I’ve taken the Italian classic and removed all traces of… dough! (Much to the horror of most Italians, I’m guessing!). My replacement dough is not just a substitute, it’s an incredible alternative. If you think it’s impossible to make pizza without dough you are going to be pleasantly surprised. In fact I will go as far as to say once you make it, you’ll be so impressed it will be one of those recipes you’ll want to make for your friends time and time again. Serves two, two mini pizzas each Base Parsnips 2 Oats* 120g/4oz Cashew nuts 100g or 2 handfuls Himalayan rock salt 1 pinch Black pepper 1 pinch Sauce: Garlic 2 cloves Cherry tomatoes 24 Fresh basil 40g or 2 large handfuls Sun-dried tomatoes 160g/6oz Balsamic vinegar 2 tbsps Himalayan rock salt 1 pinch Black pepper 1 generous pinch Topping: Halloumi 250g/9oz Pine nuts 20g/1oz

A real winter warmer, this recipe has ‘medicinal’ properties, perfect for cold and flu season
ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET... • Preheat the oven to 200˚C (400˚F/gas mark 6). • Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. • Remove the ends of one parsnip and grate. Peel the garlic. Take eight of the cherry tomatoes and cut in half. Trim the leaves from the basil and discard the stems. Slice the halloumi into small slices. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BASE Place the oats, nuts, salt and pepper into the container of a Super Blend hand blender or bullet type blender and whizz for ten seconds to form a ‘flour’. Place the ‘flour’ into a mixing bowl along with the grated parsnip. Mix with your (clean) hands until the mixture turns into a dough. Divide the dough into four and flatten each one with your hands, then roll each one into a round shape using a rolling pin. Slide onto the baking tray with a broad knife. Place the baking tray in the oven and cook for 15 minutes. Meanwhile... MAKE THE SAUCE Place the garlic, whole cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, vinegar, salt and pepper and half the basil into the hand blender container, Super Blend or Bullet Blender and blend for ten seconds.
CREATE Spoon the sauce onto the cooked bases and spread evenly, leaving a small gap around the edge. Randomly decorate with the halloumi, cut cherry tomatoes and pine nuts. COOK Pop back in the oven for 10 minutes. SERVE Remove from the oven and scatter with the remaining fresh basil. *Some oats are cross-contaminated with gluten in production, so if you’re very sensitive make sure you buy certified gluten-free oats.
Creamy Chilli and Tomato Soup If your idea of soup is something you’d get in a can, you’re in for a treat with this bad boy. Not only does it live up nutritionally to the ‘superfood’ mantle, but it’s one of the nicest soups I’ve had. If you like soup with a little kick, yet creamy to taste, you’ve found ‘The One’. This soup is rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. Garlic and chilli add the ‘health doctor’ element as garlic is a natural antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal, while chillis are a source of vitamin C, with 100g providing 240 per cent of our RDA.
Simply sensational Having made juicing easy, accessible and enjoyable, Jason’s set to reinvent the way we create meals that are inspiring, tasty and, most importantly, great for us too. So why has he chosen to create a Juice Master cookbook? “Food voyeurism is rife and, like me, most people are extremely good at watching cooking shows
Serves two Red onion 1 Red pepper 1 Red chillis 2 Garlic 2 cloves Tomatoes 4 Chilli beans* 240g or 1 can Coconut or olive oil 1 tbsp Himalayan rock salt 1 pinch Ground black pepper 1 pinch Boiling water 200ml/7 fl oz Coconut milk 200ml/7 fl oz ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET... Peel and finely chop the onions. Cut the red pepper in half, remove the seeds and chop into small pieces. Remove the ends from the chillis, chop
in half lengthways, remove the seeds and chop into small pieces. Peel the garlic and thinly slice. Chop the tomato into smallish cubes. Drain and rinse the chilli beans. COOK Put the coconut or olive oil in a large saucepan and warm over a moderate heat. Add the onion and red pepper and allow to soften for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Next add the chillis, garlic, tomatoes, chilli beans, salt and pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer for a further five minutes, then add the boiling water and coconut milk, allow to simmer for two minutes then remove from the heat.
and looking at recipe books,” says Jason. “This book aims to buck that trend. I want this book to get worn, stained, sticky and scruffy. I want the pages stuck together with bits of food splattered over it when you make the recipes, and to reignite your cooking fire. I’ll show you how frighteningly easy it can be to eat well.”
BLEND Blend the soup for 1-2 minutes using a stick blender or a regular blender. Be extra careful if opting for the latter as the build up of steam creates pressure that can force off the lid. Place a tea towel over the lid and hold firmly while blending to avoid this. *If you prefer to use dry beans, then these will need soaking and cooking first. It’s fine to use pre-cooked beans from a can, just try to buy organic if possible.
Jasey’s Bad Boy Fish Finger Sandwich There are fish finger sandwiches and then there’s this bad boy. Fish finger sandwiches remind me of my childhood, as they were a regular feature in the Vale household at least once a week. Back then of course, it was shop-bought ‘fish’ fingers, slapped between two bits of white bread and loaded with butter and shop-bought tartar sauce. These days the focus is still on taste, but also on making sure it gets a good nod in the health direction too. Beautiful fresh fish, dipped in a spelt flour, breadcrumb and chive coating and served between two slices of wholesome bread which have been generously smothered in a creamy, fresh, homemade avocado tartar. Enjoy! Ingredients for the Tangy Avo Tartar Serves two White onion ½ Ripe avocado ½ medium Lemon ½ (the juice of) Dijon mustard 2 heaped tsps Cider vinegar 1 tbsp Capers 1 heaped tbsp Ingredients for the Fish Fingers Serves two Spelt rye flour 4 tbsps Rock salt 1 pinch Ground black pepper 1 pinch Organic free-range egg 1 large Chives 10g Breadcrumbs 80g Olive oil 1 tbsp Vietnamese River Cobbler fish (or any other white fish) 250g Good quality bread (sourdough is recommended) 4 slices ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET... Peel and dice the onion, remove the avocado flesh (discard the skin and stone). Cut the fish into four even ‘fish finger’ shaped pieces and put to one side. BLEND Place the onion, avocado, lemon juice, mustard, vinegar and capers in the small container of a hand blender or Retro Super Blend. Pulse for 10-20 seconds, so it is creamy but still has a rough texture. Then place in the fridge. PREPARE Place the spelt rye flour, salt and pepper into a mixing bowl. Whisk the egg and pour into a shallow bowl. Finely chop the chives and place in a separate shallow bowl along with the breadcrumbs.
CREATE Coat the fish in the flour, then in the egg wash and finally into the breadcrumbs, making sure the ends are coated. COOK Place the olive oil in the frying pan and then cook the fish over a medium to high heat for 4 minutes each side and finish by turning the heat up high for 20 seconds each side. ASSEMBLE Use the tartar as ‘butter’ and spread across each slice of bread, then create your fish finger sandwich!

Forget greasy takeaways, this Asian-inspired dish is seriously tasty
Supercharged Egg Fried Rice This takes classic egg fried rice to a whole new ‘Super Fast Food’ level! I love rice and it’s a shame that quinoa has almost made this eastern staple a little unfashionable. This light and flavoursome version is loaded with essential nutrients, is a great source of fibre and decent ‘wild’ rice is easily worthy of super food status on its own. Add some kale, mushrooms, spring onion and pumpkin seeds and you’ve just raised the nutritional content a notch or two. Serves two Kale 50g or 1 handful Mushrooms 4 Spring onions 4 sprigs Eggs 4 (medium – free-range and organic, obviously!) Mixed wild rice* 150g/5oz Boiling water 450ml/16fl oz Sesame oil 1 tbsp Soya sauce** 1 tbsp Pumpkin seeds 40g or 1 large handful Ground black pepper 2 pinches ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET... Chop the kale into small pieces, discarding any hard stems. Wash the mushrooms and slice. Remove the ends and outer layer from the spring onions and cut into slices about 1cm thick. Whisk the eggs. Rinse the rice, place in a pan and add the boiling water. BOIL Place the rice on the hob and bring to the boil, then cover with a lid, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 20 25 minutes until all the water has been absorbed. Keep checking the rice and add a little more water if the liquid is all absorbed and the rice is still not cooked. Once it is,
remove from heat, drain any excess water, place back in the pan and cover with a lid. COOK Put the sesame oil in a wok or frying pan and heat over a medium to high heat. Add the kale, mushrooms and spring onions and cook for five minutes, stirring frequently. Add the eggs and allow to cook for one minute, stirring constantly so that the eggs envelop the ingredients and turn into scrambled eggs, not an omelette. Remove from heat. COMBINE Add the rice, soya sauce, pumpkin seeds and pepper to the frying pan and combine. SERVE Place in a bowl and eat on your lap while sat in your favourite armchair! *This will usually come in a bag with either basmati or wholegrain rice, it really doesn’t matter which you use. **If hypersensitive to gluten, use tamari or Braggs Liquid Aminos instead.
Goat’s cheese and basil dip I’m a little partial to goat’s cheese, so it won’t come as a surprise that there’s a dip that contains this beautiful, creamy and tangy cheese. All of these fresh ingredients contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, with calcium taking the limelight on this occasion. Serves two Fresh basil 50g or 1 large handful Goat’s cheese (soft type, preferably without skin) 125g/4.5oz Olive oil 1 tbsp Lemon juice 1 Black pepper 1 pinch Himalayan rock salt 1 pinch ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET... Remove any hard stems from the basil. Place all the ingredients in the container of a stick blender or Retro Super Blend and whizz for 20-30 seconds until all is combined. Scoop into a nice little bowl and enjoy with some crackers.
Sweet Chilli Potato Wedges It’s fair to say that wherever you see a salad, you are free to add a cheeky portion of these fiery babies. I love them, what can I say! They are so simple to make and are a healthier alternative to the standard white potato variety because sweet potatoes do not raise our blood sugar as quickly. They are also perfect on their own when you’re just chilling with a book or film – and great with a little homemade sweet chilli sauce or homemade pesto too! Serves 2 Sweet potatoes 2 Olive oil 1 tbsp Cayenne pepper 1 tsp ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET... Preheat the oven to 200˚C (400˚F/gas mark 6). Cut the sweet potatoes into wedges and place in a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and cayenne pepper and mix well. Place the coated potatoes onto a baking tray. COOK Pop the baking tray in the oven and cook for 25 minutes.

Crazy Good Carrot Cake Carrot cake is one of my all time favourite sweets – this recipe is gluten free and contains no refined sugars or fats. Most gluten free and healthy carrot cake recipes use two or three (or even more!) different types of flour and other unusual ingredients, but this recipe is refreshingly simple and tastes oh-so good! Cake Carrots 2 Oranges 2 Eggs 4 (medium, free-range and organic) Ginger 4 cm x 4 cm Self-raising flour (gluten-free) 400g/14oz Baking powder 1 level tsp Sultanas 4 handfuls Cinnamon 1 heaped tsp Olive oil 200ml/7fl oz Honey 4 tbsp Topping Soft cheese 250g/9oz (ideally goat’s cheese) Orange juice (this will be leftover from the cake ingredients) Honey 2 tbsps Seeds small handful (pumpkin or sunflower – optional) ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET... Preheat the oven to 180˚C (350˚F/gas mark 4). Oil two medium, loose-bottomed cake tins and line with greaseproof paper. Remove the hard ends from the carrots and grate. Finely grate the orange skin, cut in half and manually squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Whisk the eggs. Peel and finely grate the ginger. CREATE Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the carrot, orange zest, grated ginger, sultanas, cinnamon and mix. In a separate bowl gently mix the eggs, oil, honey and half the orange juice. Gradually add to the dry ingredients and mix gently. Spoon into the cake tins. COOK Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from the cake tins by tipping upside down and patting the bottoms. Remove paper and leave to cool on a wire rack. TOPPING Place the cheese in a mixing bowl and add the remaining orange juice and honey. Mix until combined and then pop in the fridge to firm up. FINISH When the cake has completely cooled, spoon half the topping mixture onto the top of each cake and pop one cake on top of the other. Chop the seeds and sprinkle over the top.

Pecan Power Granola Bars If you’ve never made homemade granola bars, you are in for a real treat. What’s really cool about these is not only are they super quick to make, but you can make a large batch, store them in the freezer to keep them extra fresh and eat them directly from the freezer (they don’t actually freeze!). Dates are rich in several vitamins, minerals and fibre. They also contain healthy oils, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, copper and magnesium. The pecans, almond butter and pumpkin seeds add essential fats and amino acids, plus B vitamins. Makes 8 - 10 Dates 8 (Medjool if possible) Pecans 1 handful Oats* 90g/3oz Cold mineral water 90ml/3fl oz Pumpkin seeds 1 handful Almond butter 4 tbsps Raisins 2 handfuls ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET... Preheat the oven to 180˚C (350˚F/gas mark 4). Remove the stones from the dates and any hard ends. Roughly chop the pecans. Mix the oats and water in a bowl until all the water has been absorbed, then transfer to a baking tray with the pecans and pumpkin seeds, and distribute evenly. Pop the tray in the oven for ten minutes, breaking up the oats part way through to ensure they dry out. MEANWHILE... Place the dates and almond butter in the container of a hand blender and blend for 20 seconds until it forms a dough. Transfer the dough, toasted pecans, pumpkin seeds, oats and raisins to a mixing bowl and lightly combine using your hands. Transfer to the baking tray and push down firmly with the back of a spoon or your (clean) hands. Place in the freezer for ten minutes, before cutting into ten lovely pieces. *Make sure these are gluten-free if you are sensitive as oats can be cross-contaminated in the packaging process.

She smashed Strictly, charmed us with Britain’s Got Talent, and she’s enjoying musical success once more – we caught up with Alesha Dixon after her recent stay at Juicy Oasis
he’s been the golden girl of Saturday night TV for seven years, showing her talents and guiding those of wannabe stars to become Britain’s next big thing. With her luminescent beauty, infectious laugh and diplomatic touch – the perfect foil to Britain’s Got Talent’s (BGT) blunt-edged male judges – Alesha has become a household name and a firm family favourite. Who better to be the cover star to launch Juiced!, not least as she enjoys downtime at Juicy Oasis. In fact she credits Juice Master Jason Vale with helping her to get the most from juicing.
The Zinger Alesha’s favourite juice is packed with power. Try it for an all-round pick-me-up! Carrots 2 Apples 2 Lemon 1” slice Ginger ¼” Ice Simply juice the lot and pour over ice.
“I love being at Juicy Oasis and the combination of glorious sunshine, fabulous juices and fun exercise, plus relaxation is unbeatable” “I try to juice every day,” she says as she takes a short break between recording BGT. “When I met Jason I was a juicer, but he taught me how to get the right blends. Before, I would experiment with juices and it was a hit or miss affair. I even juiced Brussels sprouts, but they made me feel sick – that said, the whites of my eyes had never been brighter,” she laughs. It’s this self-deprecating sense of humour which makes Alesha great fun to be around, and whether she’s walking the red carpet or climbing a mountain at Juicy Oasis she’s
open, honest and hugely approachable. That’s not to say Alesha’s not one determined lady, a woman who has forged her career through dedication and hard work. With this in mind, first things first, we want to know how – now a busy mum to daughter Azura, almost three – she maintains her stunning flawless skin, hair and nails. An ambassador for Swisse supplements which she takes every day, Alesha incorporates juicing as part of a healthy diet, along with plenty of exercise and sleep. “The key is organisation,” she says. “On a typical day I start with half a pink grapefruit with cinnamon and a bowl of porridge for breakfast, or toasted rye bread with mashed avocado or scrambled egg. I’ll make a juice for lunch,
Why it’s so good for you! This juice is rich in vitamin C, which helps sweep up free radicals and keeps tissues strong and healthy. The citric acid and ginger are wonderful at eliminating toxins from the body and aiding digestion. Ginger is also a natural antibiotic and one of nature’s supreme decongestants. This juice is full of dietary fibre, thanks to the simple apple, which oozes vitamins and minerals as well as being terrific for overall cleansing of the system.
take it to the studio and put it in the fridge. I’m lucky as my mum lives next door and she’s a hardcore juicer, as is my little brother – they’re forever making juices.” Alesha says the challenge of committing to daily juicing is more than outweighed by the benefits to how she looks and feels. “Juicing makes me feel I’ve been good to myself, and when I’ve had a juice everything falls into place. There are physical benefits too and I juice all the time to help with energy. “I get up early with Azura and by the time I head to the studio my energy levels are flagging – the odds are against me and I can feel challenged but if I’ve had a juice that’s loaded up with pineapple, for example, it gives me an extra boost to get through the rest of the day. I think the most important things are what we put into our body and sleep – with those sorted, I’m invincible!” Like most of us, a well-earned break also helps to recharge Alesha’s batteries and prepare her for a busy schedule. A big fan of Juicy Oasis, she cherishes her time at the retreat, with Jason alongside to share his nutritional and exercise knowledge. “In the UK, the main problem is the weather,” laments Alesha, “and sometimes we’re not as inspired to juice, but if we push past that, it can make an enormous difference to our wellbeing. I love being at Juicy Oasis and the combination of glorious sunshine, fabulous juices and fun exercise, plus relaxation is unbeatable. “Jason is so vibrant, positive and inspiring. I don’t think he realises it but he is amazing and I love his energy, it’s infectious. He’s achieved so much but he’s always looking to take things to the next level and juice the world, which is admirable. “I love to exercise at Juicy Oasis, and I tried rebounding recently. On my first visit I was secretly pregnant, but this time I got stuck in and I loved doing the yoga. My favourite thing is the walks – beautiful scenery, gentle exercise and, chatting with other guests, you leave the world behind.
“I enjoy my work but you have to focus on what’s important, and being in the moment rather than thinking ahead to the next thing” “It’s one of my happy places and I feel so alive when I’m there. I think it’s breathing in all that fresh air – it almost hurts your lungs, but it’s so good for us.” As if proof of the regenerative powers of Juicy Oasis were needed, Alesha is powering through a host of exciting projects. In addition to BGT, she has returned to her musical roots and, having released her fourth album, Do It for Love, on her own label, this summer performed a number of gigs. She’s also collaborated with designer Nicola Atkinson to create a fashion line for the Little Black Dress label, with £1 for every dress sold going to women’s charity Refuge. “I’m still hugely ambitious and I would love to try acting at some stage too – I have even started taking acting classes,” she says. “I want to continue to challenge myself and I’d love to do more documentaries too, as I have some ideas about animal protection to explore.” With so many plates to spin, Alesha says she is also working on mindfulness and achieving a good work-life balance. “This year’s been hectic, and I am trying to be kinder to myself,” she says. “I enjoy my work but you have to focus on what’s important, and being in the moment rather than thinking ahead to the next thing. “The future always takes care of itself and worry is a wasted energy – the only thing we have is now and I try to make that the cornerstone of everything I do. If you’ve got a good grip on life, and can zoom out to look at the bigger picture regularly, it helps keep it all in perspective. “When I go to Juicy Oasis it rejuvenates and realigns me. It’s like putting a car in for a service. I come away thinking about my body, what I put into it and achieving balance. I like to look after my body so it will look after me in the future.” Just like the talents that she spots and supports on BGT, the future looks set to continue to shine as brightly as it always has for Alesha.
Alesha’s beauty spot Thanks in part to those Swisse supplements, plenty of water, a healthy diet including daily juices and regular exercise, Alesha always looks fabulous, but Juiced! asked her to tell us who she thinks is beautiful, and what’s in her beauty bag at the moment. “Real beauty comes from real joy,” she says. “If someone radiates with a wonderful smile,
that’s beautiful. I judge beauty by someone’s vibrancy of being. “As for beauty products, I’m obsessed with Coconoil at the moment – I cook with it and use it on my skin too, I love it. I always use Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream on my lips and Maxi Lash Mascara on my eyelashes. I also adore Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner for my hair – it’s magic stuff!”

Ginger is a punchy addition to juices and smoothies. It is known to improve the absorption of essential nutrients in the body. Gingerols, the potent antiinflammatory compounds, are found in ginger and appear to reduce pain and improve mobility.
PURPLE POWER • Apples 2 • Raw beetroot 1 • Blueberries 1 handful • Blackberries 1 handful • Ice
Vita mins in a glass
Choose dark berries for antioxidants, plus vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C.
This juice is packed with disease-fighting super troopers. The combination of red grapes and blueberries makes it particularly high in antioxidants, including polyphenols, some of the most powerful plant-based examples of these special nutrients.

‘Beet’ postworkout pains
EASE THE PRESSURE • Beetroot 3 small bulbs • Apples 2 Golden Delicious • Grapes (black or red) 1 large handful • Ice one small handful
Drinking beetroot juice after exercise reduces muscle soreness. Betacyanin, the pigment that gives beetroot its colour, is an antioxidant and helps reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Beets also pack protein and soluble fibre.
Researchers at Barts and the London School of Medicine have discovered that drinking 500ml of beetroot juice per day can significantly reduce blood pressure. This mix includes red grapes, which a US study suggests may lower systolic and diastolic blood pressures, making it a punchy way to improve your most important figures.

Kute Blackson: All you need to succeed is you! Rebound with Jason: The fun way to fitness Kenny’s world Plus ‘fit-flix’ to watch this season
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” Albert Camus
Be the one Hailed by Larry King as a, ‘leader for the new generation of seekers’, and described as ‘Morpheus from The Matrix. Wearing Nikes,’ Kute Blackson wants us all to reconnect with our real self When Oprah’s people have ‘been on’, and Larry King tells you he’s read your book from cover to cover before he’s interviewed you, it’s pretty evident that you’re a hot property. Kute Blackson is indeed an extraordinary young man, creating a wave in the personal development world with his new title, You. Are. The. One. Then again, there’s little in the way of ordinary about Kute. Born in Africa, the son of a Japanese Buddhist mother and Ghanaian spiritual leader father, his first memory is seeing his father heal a crippled woman. Known as the ‘Miracle Man of Africa’, Kute’s father moved his family to London where he called upon his son, aged just eight, to address his congregation. The family’s bookshelves were filled with personal development gurus, and by 18 Kute had read 800 titles from the likes of Jack Canfield, Barbara De Angelis, John Gray and Tony Robbins, as he travelled from Dulwich to Peckham, between home and school. Although life pointed towards Kute following in his father’s footsteps, at 18 he knew that he had to forge his own spiritual path and, after he was fortunate enough to win a Green Card, left for America with just two suitcases to his name. He worked hard to establish himself, meeting Canfield – who is now a good friend – in New York, and creating a ‘meeting’ with director Steven Spielberg at a kids’ soccer match, who introduced him to his studios. Yet when an opportunity to work with a start-up management agency, who wanted to project him as a personal development 'star' came up, Kute turned it down,
feeling that his soul was telling him it wasn’t the right thing to do. Gifted money by a friend, he travelled to India, a place which Kute says stripped away his many layers of accumulated knowledge and allowed him to become authentic to himself. Returning to the US, he developed his coaching business and, working with a client with serious addiction issues – on one occasion spending £250,000 in a weekend on drugs – Kute transformed their life in 30 days. Word spread about the radical results of his work. He created the ‘Liberation Experience’, where he worked intensively with clients, many billionaires and athletes, taking them to remote destinations in India and Bali – where Blackson had found his own purpose – and challenging them to face their deepest fears to emerge reborn. It’s a technique Kute says we can all adopt to unburden ourselves of the things that are holding us back from achieving our life goals. “Anything can happen, anywhere,” says Kute. “Consciousness is everything. The reason I unplug people from their environment is because daily influences reinforce your sense of you. It can be hard to shift who you’ve been conditioned to become, to access more of your authentic self in daily life. Yet, when you question who you are, you strip away the layers and have the power to transform yourself.” Life has been fortuitous for Kute, but does he believe fate shaped his path? “I like the word destiny a lot more,” he says. “I think the Green Card was what I was intuiting at that time, my desire to go to America filtered
MIND, BODY & SPIRIT
through, the same when I was frustrated and needed to experience India. I think when you relax and let go, a deeper impulse takes over – we need to trust and ride the wave. It’s how we interact with the movement that determines our destiny. Life is about finding those natural waves.” Now Kute has captured his experiences and message in a book. Having raced to #1 in Amazon’s Hot New Releases chart, Kute’s been heralded by many of his childhood personal development heroes. “When people read it, something special happens,” he says. “The
emails I’ve received have brought me to tears. Often my coaching is associated with celebrities and business people, but I wanted the book to be for everyone.” With a title on love and relationships planned, Kute is also working on television projects and says he wants to be, “an Oprah for the next generation”. Demonstrating transformation begins within, Kute is on a mission to help us do the same. You. Are. The. One. is published by Simon & Schuster. Find out more at kuteblackson.com
Kute’s 3 mantras
1 2 3 ‘I surrender to the highest good’ – a powerful statement when you move beyond daily life.
‘Thank you’ – appreciate everything you encounter. I felt high after doing it for a day, it makes you feel so good.
‘It’s already done’ – when you follow your destiny, you live in the state of knowing that what you need is already complete.

The Juice Master tells us why rebounding is the exercise he loves most and how to put a spring into our fitness routines
I never get tired of telling people how much I enjoy rebounding and how much I get from it. It’s one of the best body strengtheners – and that’s according to NASA! The benefits go right to the core and give maximum return for the time we put into it. If you haven’t discovered rebounding yet, here’s my low-down based on the questions I get most often asked about this brilliant body transformer.
WHAT IS REBOUNDING? Rebounding is an all-over workout performed on a mini trampoline. Each routine involves a series of small, controlled movements although a rebounder can be used for jogging or dance. The combination of weightlessness at the top of each bounce and take-off creates a unique sensation and tests every muscle. WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT REBOUNDING? One of the most important things about this exercise is the effect rebounding has on the lymphatic system. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients and taking waste products away. Yet it is totally dependent on physical exercise to move. Vigorous exercise such as rebounding is reported to increase flow by 15–30 times. Rebounding reduces body fat, firms legs, abdomen, arms, and hips. It improves agility and balance, strengthens
Your bounce workout is only as good as the rebounder you use, so head over to shop.juicemaster.com/rebounding and add a little leap to your step.

muscle, provides an aerobic effect for your heart and rejuvenates your body. WHO CAN DO IT? Rebounding is something most people can do and can be used as physiotherapy or a proper workout. Unlike lots of sports equipment, a rebounder takes up little space, so you won’t need a home gym! HOW DO I GET STARTED? Using a rebounder isn’t complicated but it is important to use it properly and start slowly. Some come with stabilisers if balance is an issue. Start by bouncing with your feet in contact with the rebounder
for 2-5 minute sessions. In time you’ll be able to stretch this to 20-30 minutes bouncing and twisting your arms at the waist, jogging and jumps. HOW DO I CHOOSE A REBOUNDER? There are two main types – those with springs and those with bungees. Spring rebounders are most common and have been around longest. In terms of quality, you do get what you pay for. Juice Master has put its name to two rebounders, both of which have been tried, tested and put through their paces at both of our Juicy Retreats, so you can buy with confidence.

MIND, BODY & SPIRIT
‘Just relax’ Juiced! asked Juice Master’s resident yogi Kenny Ryan to share his unique, spiritual thoughts in a regular column. Kenny taught yoga, meditation and t’ai chi at Jason’s first ever retreat more than 12 years ago and he still remains a beautiful part of the Juice Master family.
ou may occasionally hear reference to this in your regular yoga class even though relaxation may seem to have no bearing whatsoever on your dynamic yoga session. In fact the beginning, the essence and the end of all that’s yoga is embodied in the transcendent state of relaxation. Yet what is it to relax but not to resist that which is, for already it is and in that space, ‘I Am’. Resistance is futile. In terms of applying this to your yoga practice or any individual posture simply and with integrity, move and release into as natural and open a position as the body is ready to assume. Rest there, breathe and relax even more deeply. It is existing within that space, where you make no effort whatsoever, that is a gateway to realising the fullness of yoga. This is none other than recognising the miracle of that which you are. If you cannot relax, then simply relax with the fact that you cannot relax. Relaxation will then be present. In this joyous state of relaxation, the reality that, ‘Possible is Everything’ can be discovered. There have been only few masters of this reality yet none are so adept as your own Self at rest. Rest there and relax, relax, relax.

CONSIDER A CARRIER Because essential oils are very concentrated, advice varies between blending them with a diluting carrier oil, Epsom salts or a specialist bath or shower carrier, to simply being careful about agitating the water when the oil is added. DRAW YOUR BATH Fill your bathtub with water at 36-40°C (children, the elderly or pregnant women should be between 37-39°C). Add no more than eight drops of oil to a full tub.
ALESHA’S DAILY BOOST Skin, hair and nails are our barometers when it comes to peak health. The slightest dip shows, which is why most of us need a boost now and then, especially when our skin goes into winter mode. With this in mind, Swisse, the vitamin and supplement specialist, has created Ultiplus Hair Skin Nails Supplement. Just one tablet a day of this multiple nutrient formula with a botanical extract is high in Biotin to help support and maintain healthy hair, skin and nails.

LIE BACK AND RELAX Some aromatherapy specialists advise that bathers limit their first baths with a new oil to ten minutes. This should be ample time to soak up the benefits of an aromatherapy bath although once you find your perfect blend you’ll never go back to using boring bubbles!

Wi s h y o u we re h e rxe!x x 59
immersive retreat holidays have so far passed under your radar, it may be time to discover why a mind and body detox is the hottest way to spend your precious downtime. One of the best places to recharge and reboot is Juicy Mountain Juice Retreat. Set in the mountains, north of the bright blue waters of Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, this rustic haven looks out onto a magnificent forested panorama. Magic Mountain, as the locals call it, offers a juice, yoga and fitness retreat. Originally a hotel, Juice Master-in-chief Jason picked the spot for its spectacular views and the chance to practise yoga ‘from sunrise to sunset’, a magical, natural experience where retreaters are taken on a seven-day mind and body journey. When the crazy pace of life gets too hectic, we often slip into coping cycles rather than living balanced and centered lives. It’s at that moment that a retreat can help to put us back on track. Juicy Mountain has been set up to provide a safe harbour and a place to come to
learn new nutrition and exercise techniques. So, what does a stay at Juicy Mountain entail? Days here begin as they end, with a session of yoga on an infinity platform overlooking the stunning vista. Resident yogi Kenny leads yoga and meditation sessions, and he – like Jason – has a strong connection with Magic Mountain, which is as spiritually uplifting as his sessions. The mantra here is ‘your stay, your way’ so guests are invited to tailor the week to their own needs. Some simply want to sit and unwind while others are here to exercise throughout the week. Activities and fitness classes include circuit training, rebounding, running, power walking, guided walks, volleyball or even a game of table tennis. You will experience being with a band of brothers and sisters who will travel the juicy journey alongside you. With just 12 rooms and five tents, guests never feel crowded out and the group often becomes a friendly team who support each other’s self-goals for the duration of their stay, and sometimes stay in touch long after they head home.
Their juicy journey
“I had the most amazing time at Juicy Mountain and I’m still buzzing! I have had numerous compliments on my skin, sparkling eyes and toned physique. Lots of people are asking, what’s different? I feel as if I know a secret and want the world to know – it’s all about the juice!” Rachel

“I had an amazing time and would go back to Juicy Mountain in a heartbeat, it was so much more than I expected,” Ashley
“We both feel fabulous and have a renewed determination for our juicy journey,” Graham and Cheryl
The style of Juicy Mountain is authentically rural, as befits its location perched 20 minutes above the pretty village of Gocek. Although rooms are comfortably stylish, a relaxed feel that’s in keeping with the setting has been deliberately retained. You won’t find technology or pampering luxuries, but you will experience authentic, simple and comfortable accommodation in the traditional Turkish style.

What should I bring? Life at Juicy Mountain is super chilled, so don’t get into a spin about what to pack for your stay. Retreat manager Nina Chauhan has the low down on how to get ready: “Some clients can be nervous if it’s their first visit to a retreat but I always tell them it’s going to be a lifetime experience and an investment in their health. “Most people worry that they can’t ‘eat’ and are going to be hungry, but I reassure them that they will enjoy four large portions of delicious juice per day and there’s an ample supply of herbal tea and water, plus healthy bars in an emergency. The detox is based around weight loss but there are cleansing benefits and you get a great energy kick too! “You need fitness gear and trainers, and maybe walking boots plus a rain mac for autumn or spring breaks, as it can be wet. You’ll also need sunbathing gear – there are activities from 6am – 6pm with a midday break when guests can relax, sunbathe, swim or read. This is your retreat, and nobody will force you to do anything you don’t want to.”
