2. Date Coconut Balls
Dates are a great alkalizing food. Soak pitted dates in water and process dates with unsweetened coconut shreds and roll the mixture into balls. This is another quick carb load up.

3. Eziekiel Bread with Mashed Avocado.
Eziekiel is a great wheat free bread (perfect for those who try to stay gluten free but aren’t strict on the diet). Avocado is so versatile, due to its creamy texture its a wonderful replacement for butter or cheese. Toast a slice and spread half an avocado over. Season with salt and pepper.

When you are giving your body the best nutrition you are more alert and more energized (especially for your pole fitness classes ;) ). Juicing is a great way to consume the daily recommended amount of vegetables and fruit. Its a lot more appealing than eating a salad. Juicing removes the insoluble fiber – the pulp. Yes, fiber is good for you. It keeps your digestive tract healthy but it also slows down the absorption of nutrients. Juicing extracts about 70% of the nutrition without the insoluble fiber; therefore’ your body absorbs 100% of these nutrients. Try these simple and delicious juicing recipes while cleansing your body.

Its no big deal if you don’t have a juicer. Simply just blend all the ingredients in a blender and pour into a cheese cloth over a bowl. Squeeze the cheese cloth and whats left will be all that delicious juice. Have fun juicing!
