Stay Healthy with This Easy and Simple Juice Recipe


Last weekend, my friends and I were craving for a “healthy food trip” so we all decided to visit Nurture Wellness Village in Tagaytay!

You see, it was here at Nurture Wellness Tagaytay where I learned and became aware about health and well,ness so I’m really thankful that I discovered them years ago. I’ve learned so much from them especially from their owner Ma’am Cathy Turvil in terms of food choices and organic food. So when my friends asked me about our guiltless trip, the first thing that came to my mind was of course Nurture Wellness Tagaytay!

All guests at Nurture Wellness Village are greeted in a way so special!


Truth is, even before the boom of juicing and detox juices this year, Nurture Wellness Village has already been offering and recommending healthy juices to their guests even before 2012, making them one of the forerunners of the health and wellness revolution here in the Philippines.

I believe we had at least 2 kinds of juices but my personal favorite was their  juice which is according to them is believed to be effective in preventing cancer! So today, I’d like to share with you this super easy recipe because I believe (and I’m sure you’d agree) that prevention is still better than cure! Since there is no cure yet for the big C, we need to ensure prevention.

For this recipe, we only need to remember this….. P.O.C.K! (pineapple+orange+cucumber+kale)

Here’s the recipe:

This juice turned out as my most favorite! I never thought something this delicious could bring so much goodness to my body as well. What I love most about it is that, the ingredients are relatively very affordable and easy to buy from your local market. If you don’t have Kale, I believe you can also replace it with moringga (malunggay) leaves as it’s also a very powerful superfood!

I highly recommend you try to at home!!
