I am very happy to share this company with you. I feel very passionate about them and our family has been feeling the benefits of eating Juice Plus with our normal eating habits. Why would I not want to share such a wonderful product with people I care about, it just makes sense.

*Full disclaimer, I am a representative for the Juice Plus Company. I Joined the team in the beginning so I could get my family a discount. Turns out that the more I learn, the more it makes me want to share. The purpose of this write up is to help inspire you in a way that you can make some small changes to help your family and yourself along the road to a healthy lifestyle* 

Research shows that nutrition is far more vital to our health and beauty than we have ever understood in the in the past.

What is Juice Plus?

Juice Plus+ is whole food based nutrition, including juice powder concentrates from 30 different fruits, vegetables and grains. It will help bridge the gap between what you should eat and what you do eat every day. Not a multivitamin, medicine, treatment or cure for any disease, Juice Plus+ is made from quality ingredients carefully monitored from farm to capsule to provide natural nutrients your body needs to be at its best.

Okay so this was my very first video so hang with me. Its just a little Hi and about our family and starting our journey.

A bit about Juice Plus

My husband and I have been eating the capsules everyday. This is a picture of what is inside. Over 30 different veggies, fruits and grains inside the trio!

Juice Plus+ is the most clinically proven natural product in the world. All of the company products also carry the NSF seal. That ensures that what you see is what you get. You won’t find any high levels of metals or other contaminants and you can rest assured that what the label says, the product contains – and nothing more. Don’t you wish all our food came labeled like that, I sure do.

When I first seeked out interest in Juice Plus it was because I was searching for a product just like it. In the beginning it was just for my son I wanted it to be;

  • Full of Veggies and Fruits
  • Whole based food nutrition
  • 100% vegan
  • No artificial colors or dyes
  • No artificial sweeteners
  • No High Fructose corn syrup
  • Super chewy and taste great

Turns out the company was way more then I could ask for. Their mission was one that I strongly believe in myself and I immediately started the whole family eating it.

Our Kiddo just loves the gummies. I have peace of mind now knowing that he is receiving the benefits of over 20 veggies, fruits and grains just from the Orchard and Garden Chewables. The next time we order we will also add the vineyard blend chewables to our mix this will be helping add over 30 different nutrients to his little body for less then $2.50 a day! Yes, please and Thank you Juice Plus. This is a totally reasonable price for the quality and the next best thing to fruits and vegetables.

The last little bit on this company that I want to share with you is all the Clinical research that has showcased the benefits of adding Juice Plus+ to your diet.

The most impressive research of all to me has taken place in the past 20 plus years. The tremendous effort, money spent and inspiration towards the next generation in the Children’s Health Study. Over 150,000 families have and are still participating. This is how the company invites customers over the age 18 to sponsor a child between the ages 4-18 or full-time undergraduate college student to eat for free! That is just so cool!

Adventures in food

Sorry for my absence guys. It was just me and the dude last week. We didn’t just cuddle on the couch, we had adventures in food. This little man loves to help in the kithen.

We experimented with lots of ideas but the muffins he enjoyed the best. We made them on friday and then made sure our recipe was spot on again today.

My new favorite drink and *shhhhhh secret spice now** is from Moondeli. I just adore them and all of the herbal powders they mix together. Some of the best Golden Almond Milk I have made was with the help of these guys.

I like to think outside the box and this definitely set me on a nice path through nature.  The first batch was nice and had egg, really no complaints (my kid was double fisting them into his mouth!) The second batch we did this morning didn’t have egg and I added banana and yellow squash. Although myself, I am not vegan but alot of people I love are and its just as tasty.

The whole wheat muffins are made with mashed banana, roasted sweet potato, shredded zucchini, and raw beets. These muffins are packed with veggies and fruit which is a big time bonus for the kiddos. 

Whole Wheat, golden veggie muffins

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Moondeli Calming Adaptogen (you could just substitute with: 1/4 teaspoon cardamom, 1/4 teaspoon ginger and a bit more cinnamon)
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg or 1/4 cup of applesauce
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil, cooled to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded yellow zucchini
  • 1/3 cup shredded raw golden beet (i use the smallest holes on the grader here)
  • 1 cup small diced sweet potatoes, roasted til soft not mashed)
  • DIRECTIONS:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or I use just coconut oil. Set aside..
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine mashed bananas, shredded beet, coconut sugar, egg, coconut oil, and vanilla. Stir until well combined. Add the flour mixture and stir gently with a rubber spatula until flour is mixed in. Squeeze the zucchini in a paper towel to remove excess liquid. Gently fold the zucchini,  and sweet potato into batter.
  4. **If it seems to thick you could add 1/4 Cup of almond milk. Sometimes recipies with shredded squash give or take the water more or less…
  5. Pour the batter into prepared muffin cups, about 3/4 full.  Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20-22 minutes. Cool and don’t tell the kids they are full of veggies.
