Jugo Verde – Nopal, Pineapple, Orange and Parsley Whole Juice

A very simple blend of nopal, fruit and parsley make a super healthy whole juice to get you going in the morning.

Nopal is said to be good for curing a hangover so this is the perfect morning-after juice. If you add a stick or two of celery they say this is a great juice to help you loose weight.

So we already know about how great the Nopal is in a Salad, here is the link to my recipe for delicious Ensalada de Nopal – a typical Mexican side dish – in case you missed it, now here it is in a Juice. You can always adjust the amounts in the recipe according to your taste, one thing you should know is that the nopal is a bit slimy, so the more you use the more babosa  your juice will be. If you are not too keen on that texture just don’t put too much nopal. (more…)

How to Make Perfect Papaya Juice

Make Perfect Papaya Juice Everytime:

Papaya is a strange fruit, not everyone can appreciate its delicate perfumey flavour and soft melt in the mouth texture.  I learned to love it while travelling in Thailand, anytime I had a bad stomach the papaya was there to help. It works in both ways too, as in, if you suffer with constipation the fruit is an amazing digestive aid and if the problem is the opposite, then the seeds offer a  natural and very effective yet gentle solution for diarrhea. For those who are not so keen on eating the fruit  you can make a delicious juice in a couple of minutes with a blender and a few simple ingredients, which is what i did with the papaya that a friend gave us from their garden the other day. A quick and easy way to incorporate papaya into your diet. (more…)

Under the Shade of the Lime Tree

‘Under the Shade of the Lime Tree’ was inspired (as you might have imagined) whilst i was luxuriating in the hammock under the lime tree.

..eyes almost closed, squinting up past the tapestries of spiderwebs, through the softly swaying foliage and plump and fragrant fruits. The pale golden rays of sunlight glinting through the leaves, like crystal daggers they pierced the canopy of my eyelashes, exploding into my iris!  Shards of rainbow spires fragmenting and fractalising the light, transformed into psychedelic organic life forms,  writhing and metamorphosing in their spectral glory… 

Thanks to my muse, mi arbolito de limon – some variations of the image are below -click any image to see it full size – enjoy 🙂

‘Under the Shade of the Lime Tree’ was inspired (as you might have imagined) whilst i was luxuriating in the hammock under the lime tree.. eyes almost closed, squinting up past the tapestries of spiderwebs, through the softly swaying foliage and plump and fragrant fruits. The pale golden rays of sunlight filtering down through the leaves, pierced the canopy of my eyelashes and exploded in my iris!  Shards of rainbow spires fragmenting and fractalising the light, transformed into psychedelic organic life forms,  writhing and metamorphosing in their spectral glory… ahhh such a beautiful display!
