Skai Juice has been hosting affordable wellness vacays for over 6 years while living in Puerto Rico. She is a nutritional coach and Vegan and Raw Food Chef. Her wellness retreats are created for folks who are open to checking out Puerto Rico from the islander’s perspective. Her home comfortably houses up to 6 retreat guests and is located right in the heart of the pueblo of Luquillo, PR…right around the corner from world famous Luquillo Beach. While hanging at Casa del Sol you will hear the morning sounds of Roosters, and at different times of the day you will hear the occasional Salsa, Bachata or Reggaeton blaring from a car driving by. Its all part of the culture here.

Skai Juice will guide the group before arriving to Puerto Rico on a transition diet so that we can jump right into juicing for the entire time of the trip. Having the support of several people around you doing the same thing makes it easier. We will be juicing greens, fruits, coconut water, and if necessary Green Smoothies will be added if anyone requires more bulk. Meanwhile we will be going to yoga classes in the morning on the beach and hiking in the rainforest and river and beach swimming. The evenings can be for relaxing at La Pared along the beach, watching fun movies in the house…or even going out to find some good Salsa dancing….that just depends on everyone’s energy level.

Daily Schedule:

  • Juicing all day…mixing it up between Fruit Juices, Green Juices, Coconut Water….and sometimes Green Smoothies
  • Yoga in the AM on the beach…no yoga mat required…just a beach towel
  • Hiking
  • Beaching and River Swimming
  • If you want to do some optional excursions like going to Old San Juan, Loiza…etc…let me know…we will build this into your trip.

Accommodations:
The retreat center is actually our humble 5 bedroom house: Casa del Sol in Luquillo, PR…We have been hosting guests for years and have all the common amenities to make one feel comfortable. We do not have air-conditioning, but each room has regular box fans…that keep everyone cool. The house is not typically hot even in the summer unless it’s just one of those days when the seabreeze is not blowing. In that case we take it to the hills. We have a total of 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms which are shared by all.

Release the Grease 2: Day 3

Day 3! YAHOO!

Eating your vegetables takes on a whole new meaning when you begin juicing. The brilliant colors alone are fascinating to watch as they come through the spout of your juicer.

Here are some health benefits that have been attributed to vegetables you are probably familiar with. These all make for great juice ingredients—how many have you juiced lately?

Note: the following list is certainly not neither exhaustive, and it is not claiming to provide medical advice. The intent is to illustrate the wide spectrum of beneficial nutrients believed to be available in vegetables and vegetable juices.

* Arugula – considered one of the most anti-cancer foods

* Asparagus – a super food, good diuretic, helps regulate blood sugar levels, has folic acid

* Beets, also called beetroot – helps to cleanse the blood and support the liver

* Bell peppers – chromium, lots of phytochemicals with good antioxidant value

* Broccoli – high in vitamin C, vitamin K, beta-carotene, promotes health vision

* Cabbage – red cabbage and green cabbage – coats and helps protect colon and digestive system

* Carrots – high amounts of vitamin A, chromium, carotene prevents free-radical damage to the body

* Celery – helps cleanse uric acid from digestive system, very alkalizing

* Chard (aka Swiss chard or silver beet) – vitamin A, potassium, manganese

* Collard greens – calcium protect against colon diseases

* Cucumbers – natural diuretic, good source of silicon, which is good for skin and hair

* Parsnips –  chromium, which regulates metabolism

* Parsley – with high levels of chlorophyll, fights parasites and cleanses the liver

* Radishes – known for opening up the sinuses

* Rutabagas (yellow turnips) – regular consumption helps increase stamina

* Spinach – vitamins A and K, folic acid

* Sweet peppers – vitamins A, B and C

* Sweet potatoes – vitamin A source, beta-carotene, help with arthritis and other types of inflammation

* Tomatoes – lycopene, which provides the red color, is a strong antioxidant

* Turnip greens – vitamin K, calcium, zinc which is associated with lower body fat levels

* Turnip – traditionally used as a remedy to strengthen lung tissue

All rich green vegetables contain some chlorophyll. (Do you remember that term from high school Biology??).   This can help clean our elimination systems, which can then clean our blood and lymph systems.

Chlorophyll can have other positive effects on our bodies as it helps to improve our circulation, relieve inflammatory pain, destroy bacteria and purify our livers.

Because chlorophyll, via green juices, is such a powerful benefactor to our bodies, you should strive to get some green juicing in on a regular basis. Starting out with greens combined with other juices (fruits, milder vegetables) may make it more palatable for you if you are a beginning juicer.

The nice thing about juicing is that by combining fruits and vegetables that contain specific nutrients, you can target certain concerns, like belly fat, urinary tract infections, or high blood pressure.  For Real!

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:  Check out this video by Loren Lockman of the Tanglewood Institute….I like the way he talks about what the optimal diet is and how the body actually heals itself.  This is short…only about 8 mins.  Let me know what you think the optimal diet is.
