Happy New Year! Feliz Navidad!

Happy New Year to everyone I know and don’t know yet!

Have you counted all the blessings that you have experienced in the 2018?

When I reflect on the passing 2018, I remember so many wonderful events and supportive people! Thank you all so much, you shaped my life, and I feel so grateful!

My wishes for you is to have a wonderful New 2019 Year! May it be bright, colorful, energizing, and filled with lots of smiles, laughs, support, blessings, and love!

To celebrate the transition, I prepared the raw vegan pumpkin mini-pies, carrot and orange juices, and fermented beet kvass (the recipes are coming soon). Cheers!

As always, I’m happy to hear from you – your questions, ideas, recipes, comments, etc.

See you in the 2019! 🙂




Tomato Celery Cucumber Juice

It is the end of summer and I like to celebrate it with vegetable juice prepared from some local and seasonal produce.

My favorite is a homemade version of V-8 juice. The original V-8 recipe calls for eight vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots, celery, beets, parsley, lettuce, spinach, and watercress.

However, I found that if I only have three ingredients, it still tastes pretty yummy.

For this Tomato Celery Cucumber Juice recipe, I like to juice tomato, celery, and cucumber, in any proportion, depending on what I have. The taste of this juice is sweet and salty and can satisfy the salty cravings in a very nutritious way.

To make an easy homemade version of V-8 juice, you will need these ingredients:

  • Tomatoes, 8-10, average size
  • Cucumber, 1 large, or 2 small
  • Celery, 2 stalks


Wash and scrub the vegetables. Depending on your juicer, you may need to cut them in halves or quarters. Put the vegetables in the juicer. Enjoy immediately or store in a refrigerator for up to 12 hours to preserve the maximum nutrition.

Here is a quick video on how to make this juice.

To your health,
