Got a great juice recipe for you today. It comes from the dynamic Trish Tucker-May. She is an entrepreneur and trained nutritional healer, who for the last 14 years has divided her time between Australia and the UK, running a mobile juice truck.
“Passion 4 Juice,” at festivals, events, and retreats. It is her signature recipe that her customers go wild for.
She calls this taste sensation 'Party In Your Mouth'
Trish has a very inspiration story which she shares on today's Juicing Radio.
Listen here to
Trish Tucker-May interview.
She turned her back on a cushy corporate job to start a juice truck. Trish speaks honestly about the blood, sweat and tears it takes to start up one’s own business, and shares her wisdom and insights with us.

Staying healthy over the winter months
or ALL year round!
Here are 11 tips for staying healthy over the winter. My goal at the end of this is that you have an understanding that health is simple.
Why should you listen to me – after all, I cheat and live in the UK for the Summer then jet off to Australia for the Summer, to escape the winter. I have spent 2 winters here in the UK. The first was a novelty – "ooh it gets dark at 4pm" and "ooh it might snow any minute". During my second winter in the UK the novelty had worn off and I got really sick.
Using what I have learnt during my juice journey, I will share with you some tips.
I have been studying Nutritional Healing for the last four years. My aim is to help people have more energy and create a healthy lifestyle free from pain and disease. I have experienced the first hand benefits of good nutrition such as more energy; increased tolerance of stress; balanced moods; and stable blood sugar. I have also been juicing for 32 years – I guess that makes me a bit of an expert!
So let me share some of the best things I have learnt through my study.
Winter Warming Soup Recipes for ALL the Family
Shared family meal time brings conversation, connection and relaxation. Here are some recipes you could make together. Show the kids how to choose flavour combinations, peel, chop, build flavour and cook. The more they feel part of the making the more they will feel like eating it.
Colour, texture and taste are all there to be explored by kids. So consider these things when introducing foods. Green seems to be the main issue so think about bringing a positive vibe when giving green foods. Nature, the world around us providing. It is only TV and peers that prevent green from being a loved food colour.
Easy Roasted Vegetable Soup©
1 medium sweet potato
1 medium potato
1 large onion
2 gloves of garlic
Heat your oven to 180
Peel all the veg and dice apart from the garlic. Just peel the garlic and leave whole.
Place all the diced and peeled veg into a deep baking tray and add the garlic whole.
Drizzle with a good quality hemp and sunflower oil.
Bake for 40 minutes
Blend all the veg together into a thick warm paste and add water to thin the consistency.
Serve with a nice crusty farmhouse loaf, delicious grated cheese and a few sunflower seeds and freshly chopped parsley.
This is a guide to what you need to start juicing.
Juicing is great for many reasons and here are just a few:
Juicing is an excellent way to get your 5 a day. At Passion 4 Juice we think the idea of 5 a day is completely flawed. While the British struggle to get 5 a day the Japanese recommended daily amount is a staggering 17 portions of fruit and veg a day. In Australia the minimum is 7 a day and the Danes aim for six, the French 10, and Canadians are urged to get through between five and 10. The Japanese government, however, now recommends up to 13 portions of vegetables plus four of fruit daily. So if 5 a day is going to give you average health, and average health looks like One in four people with cancer, heart disease, obesity and diabetes rates increasing then we don’t want just average health – we want exceptional health and the easiest way to get nutrient dense fruit and veg is by juicing and making smoothies an everyday way of life.
Juice is quickly and easily absorbed by the body, it’s energy on tap
Antioxidants found in fresh juice are nature’s weapon against ageing
It’s the complete health package, containing vitamins, nutrients, natural sugars and living enzymes
Juice cleanses the body of toxins and boosts the immune system
Fresh pressed juice contains living enzymes, vital for health and well-being
It tastes great!
If you are new to juicing – perhaps start with a juice machine that is easy to use and clean. Juicers come in lots of different types and in a massive range of prices, too. If you prefer to blend the juice/fruit with ice to make it cooler we recommend going for a good blender.
What do you need to start your home juice bar?
This is a blog dedicated to parents with little ones you want to nourish and keep them healthy. Keep reading for raw food smoothies especially suited to babies and little people. We will also provide a breakdown of the nutrients so you will know they are getting the goodness they need to grow up strong and healthy.
Babies will love to explore colour, texture and taste. Consider introducing a wide variety when starting on solid food. Green seems to be the main issue so think about bringing a positive vibe when preparing green foods. Green foods are vital for providing growing bodies with energy direct from mother nature. It is only TV and peers that prevent greens from being a loved food colour.
Using ice in these recipes will help break down the fibre. However all baby and toddler food is best served slightly warm as it will be comforting and reassuring to your child.
If you have a Thermomix you can also very easily warm the smoothie to 37 degrees, keeping it raw but warm and comforting for your little person to enjoy. If you don’t have a Thermomix all of these recipes can be slightly warmed on your stove top. Don’t overcook as you will lose all the enzymes and some of the dense nutrients.
Avoid any food additives
Any animal product high in vitamin A
White, refined sugar
Fructose (not fruit sugar as it is falsely called, it is made from corn starch by microbes)
Potato, deficient in nutrients and packed with starch which can cause tummy trouble
Corn, very often genetically manipulated and low in nutrients
Soy, even organic non GMO, mimics estragon (female hormone) in the body can cause a harmful hormone imbalance, so try rice milk
Nuts, mycotoxins and risk of inhaling
What if you make too much baby smoothies or food?
We believe fresh is always best, but for busy parents it is easy to run out of time to prepare fresh each day. A good idea is to make large batches and freeze small portions in tiny pots or ice cube trays. Then they are ready for trips out and about, defrosting and warming up. You can also make left overs into iced lollies or ice blocks for older siblings.
Here are a few recipes for you to try. We would love to get your feedback on what works, what your favourite baby food recipes are and what your children enjoy the most.
