Even though the holidays have been over for more than a month, some of us may still be feeling the aftershock of cookies, second helpings of our favorites, and over-consumption of grape juice (aka, wine). Since it only happens once a year, I always decide to indulge over the holidays. I’m one to eat more, exercise less, and disregard counting calories, and I do so without feeling guilty! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and spring break bathing suit season is looming. Little voices buried deep in the under-layers of our winter weight usually persuade us in some form or another to cleanse, or watch what we are eating. My personal favorite (to answer to those little voices) is cleansing with juice.

So  I am launching a juicing contest! For the next four weeks on Wednesdays, I will be posting a new juicing recipe for you to try as a mid-week pick me up.

I will post a new juice recipe that will have loads of healthy attributes.

I would love  to see you pull out your juicer (I’ve had one for years and bought it for only $70.00) and make the juice recipes that I post! Afterwards, I want your to  share how it tastes, what you liked or didn’t like, and how you feel after drinking the juice!

Also, you have a chance to…



It’s this easy:
1) Follow me on Twitter and Tweet, “I want to win a juicer from @ChefLaura!”
2) Like me on  Facebook and  post on my wall, “I want to win a juicer from Chef Laura!”
3) Do both and be entered to win twice!
4) If you are already following me on Twitter and liked me on Facebook, you can still enter by following steps #1 and #2 (do both and be entered in twice)

Note: The contest  starts on Wednesday, February 6th and will end on Wednesday, February 27th. The winner will be chosen on the morning of  Thursday, February 28th.         

We will cover postage costs for the lucky winner in Canada or the USA. Global entries welcome<

Are  you up for the challenge? Well, if you are…ready, set, JUICE!
