Kris Carr’s Top 15 Crazy Sexy Diet Tips

Check out some of my top tips for supercharged living below, plus my favorite green juice and smoothie recipes. This handy list is a great reminder when you fall off the wellness wagon.

Peace & sparkly unicorns,

1. Get back to nature and back to the garden – preferably the organic garden, when affordable. When not, try to choose fruits and veggies that are less sprayed. You can find a Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides at foodnews.org. There are over 80,000 chemicals in our world today; eating them and putting them on our bodies is a dangerous proposition.

2. Create an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle. Learn about pH, the acid/alkaline balance and say goodbye to the sad, acidic diet in favor of alkaline raw organic veggies, sprouts, green drinks, green smoothies, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, love and oxygen.

3. Make juice, not war. Green smoothies are great, too. My favorite juicer is the Breville Ikon, and the best blender is the Vitamix. Instead of your morning cup of Joe (or nightly cup of booze), try filling your day with fresh vegetable juice.

Check out my digital book, Crazy Sexy Juices & Succulent Smoothies, for loads of yummy juice and smoothie recipes plus answers to all your juicing and blending questions. It’s the next best thing to having me right in your kitchen!

4. Drink lots of clean, purified water.

5. Decrease the amount of animal products you consume (especially dairy products) and move towards more of a plant-based diet.

6. Refined sugars and processed starches are the devil – dump them. If it’s made in a lab, it takes a lab to digest. If it has a shelf life longer than you, don’t eat it. Choose low-glycemic foods as much as possible.

7. Shake your booty. Your lymph system, which carries away waste, needs you! Unlike your heart, it doesn’t have a pump.  Aerobics is the pump. Brisk walking is the pump. Yoga is the pump.

8. Give your colon a regular spring-cleaning. That’s right, flood your body with alkalinity and flush it of toxins. As the good stuff goes in, the bad stuff should come out – on a regular basis.

9. Use natural skincare products. Your skin is your largest organ and what you put on it, you literally drink in. Everything you consume either gets assimilated or eliminated. Chemical creams and perfumes tax your body big time.

10. Stress also creates acidity, so turn down the volume on chaos and turn up the joy factor up. Find and regularly commit to activities that help you bring it down a notch. Some ideas: meditation, gratitude journaling, guided relaxation or visualization CDs, nature.

11. Snooze. Snooze. Snooze. Optimal hours: 11-7am.

12. Chew. Your stomach does not have teeth.

13. Stop eating late so that when you snooze, your body can focus on repair instead of digestion.

14. Set boundaries so that you have the physical and emotional time to take care of yourself – it’s not selfish, it’s self-preserving.

15. Make time for fun, for love, for laughter!

Make Juice, Not War Green Drink

It’s our motto and our morning beverage. Here’s what we serve in the Carr/Fassett home daily. This recipe makes almost 32 oz.

  • 2 large cucumbers (peeled if not organic)
  • Big fist full of kale or romaine
  • Big fist full of sweet pea sprouts (if easy to find)
  • 4-5 stalks celery
  • 1-2 big broccoli stems
  • 1-2 pears or green apples (optional)

*Other optional greens we love: spinach

Kris Carr’s Green Smoothie

Makes enough for 2 people. You can adjust the recipe accordingly. My taste buds are different than yours so don’t be afraid to play!

  •  1 Avocado
  • 1-2 pieces of low glycemic fruit: we love green apple, pear, berries & cantaloupe
  • 1 Cucumber
  • A bit of kale or romaine or spinach
  • Coconut water (or purified water)
  • Stevia to taste

*You can also add a sprinkle of cinnamon and some cacao.

*You can also use coconut meat or almond butter or nut milk in place of avocado.
