Our Juicing Philosophy

Michael Celozzi

Hello, 2019! We are so excited to see you but first, we have some housekeeping to take care of.

It’s time to hit the reset button and a perfect way to begin is with an organic juice program.  January officially marks the beginning of our juicing season here at The Pantry by Stone Hollow, and we would love to have you join us!  We want to share with you the answers to the most common questions we hear.

Why juice?

There are many reasons to juice.  A few of the most common reasons we hear about are weight loss, preventive health and a need for increased energy.

How does my body benefit from juicing?

In simple terms, your body has a fuel tank and the fuel is your food. Just as your car requires clean fuel to run smoothly, so do our bodies.

The process of making juice removes the pulp and fiber. Therefore, to make a 16-ounce juice we estimate that we use the volume of produce it would take to make ten salads.  With those solids removed, we benefit from a concentrated dose of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.  This simple food added to your daily diet is a way to live out Ben Franklin's axiom, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

When setting your juicing goals, be sure they are realistic.  If you are new to juicing, it is not recommended to begin with a three or five day cleanse.  Set a small goal and obtain it. Then start again.  Juicing is serious business for cleansing our bodies. The liver and blood need time to process the waste that is released when juicing.

At The Pantry, we insist that you juice cleanse one day a week for several weeks. After a few weeks, your sour taste buds begin to wake up and your body starts to show the increased energy benefits from your efforts.  Changing a few small habits really will make a dramatic difference in your wellness program.

After you have completed your day of juicing, try to eat 30% of your daily food intake in uncooked vegetables, fresh fruit, raw nuts and coconut water which will support a new approach to healthy eating and living.  Juicing has proven to be an excellent source of increasing nutrient consumption and has earned powerful credibility in the health and wellness arenas.

When juicing, remember that whatever ingredients are in your juice have been condensed into liquid form. This makes using organic ingredients so important, as to avoid consuming large amounts of fertilizers and pesticides that are used to grow non-organic food items.

Lastly, juicing is not a single source of protein or fiber, so lengthy juices programs are not recommended.

Stop by The Pantry and we will be glad to discuss our juicing philosophy, and recommend a juice or cleanse program for your personal needs.

Stone Hollow Farmstead Marmalade Tea Cake

Michael Celozzi

INGREDIENTS:

For the cake

  • 3 tbsp. SHF Grapefruit Marmalade

  • 1 cup of SHF yogurt

  • 1 ¼ sticks of softened butter

  • 1 cup of sugar in the raw

  • 3 SHF free-range eggs

  • 2 cups of self-raising flour

  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

  • Zest of 1 grapefruit

For the glaze

  • Juice of ½ a grapefruit

  • 5 tbsp. of SHF Grapefruit Marmalade

  • 2 tbsp. of SHF Yogurt

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175˚C). Grease springform pan with butter and fit with non-stick parchment paper.

  2. Put marmalade in a small saucepan and heat gently until melted. Stir in yogurt and let cool for a few minutes.

  3. Put butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Mix with a hand mixer or large spoon until creamed. Add the eggs, flour, baking powder, and grapefruit zest and mix again until the batter is thick — don’t worry about some clumps.

  4. Add grapefruit and yogurt mix to the batter and pour into the prepared tin. It will be runny.

  5. Bake for 1 hour until golden and well-risen and a toothpick comes out clean. Cover it loosely with baking paper after 45 minutes if it begins to turn too brown.

  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.

  7. Meanwhile, combine grapefruit juice, marmalade, and yogurt in a small pan and heat until warm on low (be careful not to curdle the yogurt). While the cake is cooling, carefully pour the warm mixture over the top so that the cake has a sticky glaze.

  8. Serve with a hot cup of tea— or something a little stronger. Cheers!
