Hey everyone! So I’m doing a little music series on my blog in the upcoming months which will feature different musicians and their take on staying balanced and/or healthy on the road. Since traveling musicians live a similar on-the-go lifestyle as myself, I thought it would be fun. Plus, if you know me, you know I’m very passionate about music 🙂 I have the privilege of starting this series out with all the good vibes from one of my favorite reggae inspired bands, Rebelution!
A few months ago, I was backstage juicing with them before their show at the Hollywood Palladium. Yep.. I said juicing. Before each show, they make a huge batch of fresh veggie juice for the whole band and crew to enjoy. These guys are seriously dedicated and a true inspiration to staying healthy on the road (that’s green juice in the red cup by the way!).
The guys shared their recipe with me so I could share it with all of you. Keep in mind this makes a really big- and delicious- batch of juice!
Rebelution Good Vibes Juice (makes a large serving for several people- enough for the band and crew)
-2 heads spinach
-5lb bag of carrots
-1 large piece of ginger
-6-8 red beets w/ greens attached
-3lb bag of red apples
-2 bunches rainbow chard
-1 fennel bulb
-1 bunch kale
-2 large cucumbers
Run all ingredients through juicer, saving the carrots towards the end. You will need to empty out the pulp basket a few times during the juicing process since this makes such a large batch, but that’s okay! Just keep an eye on it so it doesn’t overflow.
It’s really awesome to see how juicing is a priority to them and how they make it happen before every show. Makes me feel like I’m not the only crazy one who does this! 🙂 Way to go guys and thanks for having me!
