Want to Glow Like Blake Lively and Naomi Watts? Get Juicing With Eric Helms!

Ever wonder how Blake Lively and Naomi Watts manage to maintain their radiant Hollywood glow? Sure, we imagine it has a lot to do with their dedicated beauty regimens, but the two starlets also credit their glow to inner beauty in the form of a healthy diet. Juice Generation founder Eric Helms is Lively and Watts&apos go-to guy when it comes to whipping up vitamin-rich juices, and a slew of other celebs (including Michelle Williams, Hilary Swank, and Jason Bateman) are also hooked the so-called "juice glow."

In Helms&apos new book, The Juice Generation, which contains more than 100 recipes for vegetable and fruit juices, smoothies, and tonics, in addition to self-help tips on how to turn your kitchen into a liquid laboratory, he shares his star customers&apos favorite juice recipes—like Williams and Lively—plus their raving commentary.

Not only did we delve into the book—which is broken down into three phases that takes you from beginner to experienced in regards to flavor and skill complexity—we spoke with Helms to squeeze out some of his secrets to staying healthy during the long winter months, plus we scored all the ingredients of Lively&aposs favorite green juice.

Which juice do you recommend if you are feeling the winter blues? Make it tasty, make sure it makes you happy. The only way you’ll keep on top of your winter regimen – and your New Years resolutions – is if you commit to changes that you actually enjoy. Don’t start training for a marathon if you don’t like running, and don’t make drastic changes to your diet that you can’t stick with. That’s what’s great about juicing: it’s tasty and good for you, and you can customize any juice or smoothie to dazzle your palate.

What&aposs the secret to staying on top of your health game during the dull winter?I’m not suggesting you overhaul your entire diet. Supplement your regular habits with a daily fresh juice. Even that seemingly small gesture makes a big difference – and will spice up your winter blues. Get Ur Green On juice is full of kale, spinach and pineapple, and tastes like a mojito, without the guilt. Close your eyes and you’ll almost think you were back in Miami.

What celebrities do you think have glowing, radiant skin? Michelle Williams, Blake Lively, Hilary Swank, Naomi Watts, Kristen Bell – I can go on and on. I know because they’re regular. I see them, I juice for them. They’re guzzling our green juices, relying on their natural fuel to get through awards season and long days on set. It’s no industry secret: a radiant glow starts from the inside out. Just ask beauty maven Pat McGrath!

Blake Lively&aposs favorite juice is the Intoxicating Detoxification: How do we make it?1 cup kale, 2 leaves swiss chard, 1.2 cup parsley, 1/2 small beet, 1/2 cup pineapple, 2 medium green apples, 1 sprig fresh mint, 1/2 medium lemon, peeled. Blend it together and serve!


The One Thing Blake Lively Drinks When She Needs To Detox

Whenever Blake Lively reveals any tips for how the rest of us can be more Blake Lively-ian, we grab our iPhones to take literal notes in the Notes app. No? Just me? OK, well, she is the Marth Stewart of millennials, so she has some good advice under all that amazing hair.

She just revealed her go-to detox drink and basically called it life-changing. "A few years ago, I had a juice that changed it all for me&mdasha mix that&rsquos better than any po&rsquo boy you&rsquoll ever eat." Lively says. "Vegetables in their purest form are refreshing and palate-cleansing, while the sweet notes of the fruits and mint make this both quenching and intoxicating. Now I can get my dose of veggies in a delicious way."

I can't imagine any vegetable, let alone most other foods, tasting better than a po' boy, but I'll take Blake Lively's word for it. So what's her recipe?

Ingredients

On the vegetable side we got:
1 cup kale
2 Swiss chard leaves
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 small beet

2 green apples (use red for sweeter flavor)
1 sprig fresh mint
1/2 lemon, peeled

Combine all ingredients in a blender or juicer and process until smooth. Then sip on your detox drink and pretend you're Blake Lively. That's the point of this drink, right.


Healthy Eating Idea: Blake Lively's Healthy Veggie Smoothie Recipe

If you're looking for a healthy new smoothie recipe, here's one to try—from Blake Lively. I tried it this morning, and not only is it filled with tons of veggies. it's also tasty!

I was paging through People's list of star-provided juice recipes and just happened to have all the ingredients in Blake's veggie smoothie on hand today (which basically never happens)—so I decided to give it a whirl. She contributed her recipe to The Juice Generation: 100 Recipes for Fresh Juices and Superfood Smoothies, saying that the drink is "refreshing and intoxicating" and helps her get in a big, healthy dose of veggies.

So what's in this intoxicating blend, you ask? Kale, Swiss chard, parsley, beet, pineapple, green apples, mint, and lemon. Simple—and, it must be said, also quite purple. But it's definitely worth a try (the full recipe is here).

Would you try it? And what are your favorite ingredients to put in juice or a smoothie?


Everything You Need to Know About Juicing at Home

Unless, maybe, you juice at home. After the initial juicer purchase&mdashgood ones run as low as $99, or about 10 store-bought juices&mdashDIY juicing can easily be the best option for your wallet. And as Eric Helms, founder of Juice Generation and the Cooler Cleanse, attests in his new book The Juice Generation: 100 Recipes for Fresh Juices and Superfood Smoothies, it's often the most enjoyable.

I recently went to a hands-on juicing demo with Helms and his team to learn how to do just that. "If you have time to toast a bagel, you have time to make a juice," Helms assured me. Here, the best tips I picked up, a selection of juicers at all price points, and Blake Lively, Michelle Williams, and Hillary Swank's favorite juice recipes:

&bull Buying produce: According to Helms, $20 per week should get you enough produce to make one glass of juice everyday. Buy several large handfuls of greens, some apples, and whatever additional produce you'd like to add for variety. Organic and locally grown is best, but if you can't afford it, be sure to use a good produce wash on conventionally grown veggies. According to the book, buy the following items organic whenever possible, since they tend to have the most chemicals when grown conventionally: apples, carrots, cherries, grapes, lettuce, pears, strawberries, bell peppers, celery, cucumbers, peaches, spinach, kale, chard, collard greens.

&bull Understanding the difference between juice and a smoothie: I asked this stupid question so you don't have to. In a smoothie, you're essentially eating all of whatever you've just ground up in your blender. When you juice, the fiber and pulp gets pulled out and separated. The result? Smoothies are more filling and more caloric. "Blended drinks are more of a meal replacement," Helms says. "Juices are more about supplementing your diet, not for substituting as a meal."

&bull Making green juice taste better: This has always been my biggest complaint about juice &ndash it just doesn't taste as good as say, Diet Coke. But my personal juice chef at the event gave me two tricks to make bitter greens, which are loaded with nutrients and vitamins, taste a lot better. He crumbled up a few mint leaves into a mixture of spinach and kale and it really cut the bitterness. Apples are also great for adding some sweetness, and if you really have a sweet tooth, add pineapple. You can then slowly change the ratio of green to sweet as needed until you can tolerate more hard-core green juices. Try one of these celebrity recipes:

Blake Lively's Intoxicating Detoxification Recipe:
1 cup kale
2 leaves swiss chard
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 small beet
1/2 cup pineapple
2 medium green apples
1 sprig fresh mint
1/2 medium lemon

Michelle Williams's Leafy Green Goodness Recipe:
3 leaves kale
1 cup spinach
2 leaves Swiss chard
4 medium apples
1/2 medium lemon, peeled

Hillary Swank's Daily Detox Recipe:
5 medium carrots
1/4 medium cucumber
1 medium apple
1 inch fresh gingerroot, peeled
1/2 medium lemon, peeled

&bull Finally, choosing a juicer: Helms says you don't need to spend a lot on a fancy version, but you should understand the lingo. The most expensive and most high maintenance one is a hydraulic press, which is how companies get "cold pressed" juices. They're generally for pros only. "Masticating" juicers, which "chew" up the produce, and "hydraulic" juicers, which mash and spin the produce, are your best bets for home use. Masticators are generally easier to clean, but take longer to make juice.

Jack Lalanne's Power Juicer, $99.99: An entry level juicer that Helms recommends for beginners.

Omega Mega Mouth Juicer, $149: This centrifugal style juicer is reasonably priced and gets consistently good reviews.

Breville Juice Fountain Multi-Speed, $199: Breville has different models, from a compact, space-saving edition to a commercial quality juicer. Gets rave reviews consistently from juicing enthusiasts.

Kuvings Silent Juicer, $329: The couture of juicers, this masticating style is sleek, quiet, and efficient.

Blake Lively’s diet is actually super normal

When it comes to dieting and maintaining their figures, celebrities have admitted to doing all sorts of things. However, for Lively, who has had three children and continues to shine on-screen, the key to wellness is living normally and having sustainability.

According to Spoon University, breakfast for Lively is key. A typical breakfast for the Gossip Girl alum is a glass of water, eggs (cooked in coconut oil), and some veggies or gluten-free oats with fruit.

Most of the actor’s meals consist of protein, vegetable, fruit, and a slow-burning carb. These give you the nutrients that you need while balancing your sugar levels all day. However, this does not mean that the 33-year-old is scared to indulge.

Her trainer Don Saladino says that Lively indulges in treats every now and again adhering to the 80/20 rule. However, even on busy days, the A Simple Favor actor has one trick that she uses to get her nutrients and veggies in.


6 Green Juices Celebrities Swear By To Speed Up Their Metabolism In The Morning

Celebrities are notorious for their green juices. Not only do they make for a healthy alternative for breakfast, but health and fitness experts say that a good green juice can work wonders for your metabolism.

“If you’re putting the right stuff in your green juice, exercising and eating well-balanced meals, it can help jumpstart your metabolism and promote weight loss,” New York-based nutritionist Regina Fazzini tells SheFinds. “Spinach, kale, apples, avocados, celery–if it’s green and filled with vitamins and nutrients, it can get your metabolism revved and help you burn calories throughout the days.”

So, what are the secret recipes that make up the coveted green drinks of celebrities like Blake Lively, Meghan Markle and Gwyneth Paltrow? Actually, they’re not a secret! Here are the green juices that your favorite celebs swear by to speed up their metabolisms in the morning:

&ldquoA few years ago, I had a juice that changed it all for me&mdasha mix that&rsquos better than any po&rsquo boy you&rsquoll ever eat,&rdquo Lively says. &ldquoVegetables in their purest form are refreshing and palate-cleansing, while the sweet notes of the fruits and mint make this both quenching and intoxicating. Now I can get my dose of veggies in a delicious way.&rdquo

Her go-to recipe includes:

1 cup kale
2 Swiss chard leaves
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 small beet
1/2 cup pineapple
2 green apples (use red for sweeter flavor)
1 sprig fresh mint
1/2 lemon, peeled

The iconic model credits her figure to the Urban Remedy 4-day cleanse, which follows a "food as medicine" philosophy featuring a mostly raw and vegan eating plan centered around whole-foods and juices.

One of Crawford's favorite recipes is The Green Juice, which calls for:

7 stalks celery
½ cucumber
¼ bunch parsley
3 stems kale
½ head romaine lettuce
3&ndash4 cups spinach

For Gwyneth, she prefers a green juice that's filled with calcium and antioxidants. She says that her "Best Green Juice" recipe works better than a cup of coffee in the morning to get her energized!

Ingredients:

5 large leaves of kale, ribs discarded, leaves roughly chopped
1 lemon, zest and pith removed
1 large apple, roughly chopped
A 2.5cm piece of fresh ginger
1 sprig of fresh mint

J.Lo loves a good green juice from Kaeng Raeng, a natural juice cleanse program. Each drink is filled with a full serving of organic fruits and veggies, protein, probiotic cultures, and energizing B vitamins. They're perfect for easing in and out of a cleanse, and will help you get one step closer to looking like J.Lo!

What does the royal-to-be use to make her green juice? Instead of reaching for a cup of joe in the morning, she prefers a green juice filled with apple, kale, spinach, lemon, and ginger.

"If I blend some apple, kale, spinach, lemon, and ginger in my Vitamix in the morning and bring it to work, I always find that sipping on that is a much better boost than a cup of espresso," she says.

The actress swears by a green juice from RAW Organics. Each juice is made from fresh fruits & vegetables and delivers nourishing vitamins and metabolism-boosting minerals to help get your day started.

Blake Lively's Trainer On Cheat Days, Sleep + Organic Burritos

Ever Since blake lively turned up preggo on a recent red carpet, all eyes have been back on the talented soon-to-be mother of three. This story from Blake Lively’s trainer originally ran in 2016 but we loved it so much we decided to bring it back.

Too often, the health and fitness details disclosed by a celebrity and their team are less than insightful, and stir more feelings of skepticism and hopelessness than inspiration. Such is not the case with Blake and her go-to trainer, Don Saladino.

Don is the kind of trainer we can get behind 100% and gives us hope that this level of physical excellence can be achieved realistically and healthfully! “Realistically?” you ask, appalled. Full disclosure, even Blake has admitted in interviews that her svelte figure for roles often only lasts weeks, after which she comes down to a more live-able level. But we digress bodies like Blake’s are still pretty aspirational when they’re achieved in true health and balance – although wellness goals are never one size fits all.

Make no mistake, Blake works like a beast to get into shape for biggest roles, but we found ourselves impressed and inspired by her trainer, Don Saladino’s insights on what it truly took to get her in shape for a recent role. Here’s what Don shared with us about his process with Blake and the lessons we’re taking away to live well every day…

Don’t Drop the Metabolism. One of Saladino’s big fitness themes is fire. He encourages his clients to think about their metabolism like a fire, and to “get it burning and keep it burning hot all day.” Stoking the metabolism all day long is what Don credits his success working with with both Blake and her husband Ryan Reynolds for the recent Deadpool. “By two in the afternoon, I would expect Blake to have eaten two to three meals with her baby in tow,” said Don. Deprivation is not part of Don’s formula, and he insists that not eating through the day is one of the easiest ways to sabotage your wellness goals.

Take a Holistic Approach. How is that done? Clearly, fitness is key, but hydration, rest, recovery, and plenty of nutrient-dense food are also vital parts of the equation.”If any of these components are lacking, you’ll be neglecting powerful tools that’ll keep your metabolism burning strong,” said Don. “Fitness alone is not enough – you’ve got to stoke the flame of your metabolism by tending to all of these elements equally.”

High Quality Cheats. Saladino advises his clients to follow the 80/20 rule. Sort of. The 80/20 rule means that, while training for The Shallows, Blake was required to eat from Don’s recommended diet (see below) 80% of the week and allowed to cheat the other 20%. With one caveat: Don insists that cheats be of “high quality”. Need a burrito? Skip the drive thru and grab it from a taco shop that’s using organic chicken. Chocolate on the brain? Great, just make it a dark bar without weird additives. Don insists this will keep your system strong, clean and capable without the inflammatory, digestion-weakening responses the body can experience otherwise.

Digestion Matters. While training with Don, Blake’s digestion was a top priority. We love this because when talking about fitness with pros across the country, we find this rarely comes up. When it comes to a svelte, well conditioned physique, balanced digestion is more important than some of us may realize. How we process what we’re eating effects our energy, mood, sleep and, of course, weight.

Hard No’s: No White Foods. During intense training periods, Don’s clients are allows no “white foods”. That includes white sugar, table salt, white flours like wheat, and, depending on the client, no dairy. We don’t think that’ll surprise any of our readers. The goal of most of this elimination is to quell inflammation in the body.

This type of elimination diet is easy to try on your own. Instead of a traditional “weight loss diet” or detox, simply try cutting white sugar and white flour from your diet for a meaningful period of time and see how your body responds.

Sleep It Off. For a few decades there, it seemed as though sleep had gone completely out of style. As though it was ever optional, we’re happy to see the wellness world leading the charge on the message that sleep matters. Getting plenty of rest and a full night’s sleep is essential to achieving any weight or wellness goal. Saladino says that a good night’s sleep is the best fat burner of them all. The opposite is true of poor sleep habits.

Be Realistic. Be Good To You. When prepping to appear in a bikini on screens all over the world, there will be days that require the best workout of your life. However, not every day is that day. As a trainer, Don encourages Blake and other clients to accept that and be ready to adjust to the day’s needs. No time for a perfect workout? Make the twenty minutes you do have count and be proud of the effort you put in one day at a time.

TCM Reader Weigh-In: What do you think? Do you find celebrity fitness inspiring or frustrating? Do you like Saladino’s perspective on fitness as much as we do?
