This morning I got up and looked outside the window and saw the rain… thought there go my walking plans. All day today, the forescast says it’s supposed to rain.  So I will have to figure out something else for a workout.!!!

But until then, I made my Juice in my VitaMix Juicer.:

Carrot Juice:


 4 Carrots

 4 Celery

2 Handfulls of Spinach

1 Apple 


Cleaned and Chopped up Vegetables, add water and ice. Turn on VitaMix on Variable 1 and turn up speed to 10 and mix for 1minute or until desired consistancy.

Then I went ahead and pulled the Barley Max container out of the cupboard and mixed a glass of water with 1 spoonful of the powder.

What Is Barley Max??

BarleyMax is a barley juice product, which is grown from specially selected seeds on fields that are certified organic in a pristine area of the USA.

Alfalfa juice is blended with the barley juice to optimize the nutritional values and achieve the highest macro and trace mineral content possible.


BarleyMax has a balanced and richer amount of macro minerals and trace minerals. Higher mineral content gives more cofactors for higher enzyme activity and building blocks for the living cells, tissues and organs of the body.

Vitamin Content – Tests and research indicate higher vitamin content in BarleyMax. This may be due to growing conditions, but also to lower heat and oxygen exposure during processing.

Antioxidant Capacity – Green drink powders are a rich source of antioxidants. In a measure of total antioxidant capacity, this product is the leading green drink juice powder. Levels of beta-carotene are highly dependent on storage time and light exposure.

Looks Fresh – BarleyMax is green. When mixed BarleyMax has a deep, rich green color. Even if it sits on the counter for a while, it does not separate. This indicates true solubility. It mixes easily and stays mixed.

No Maltodextrin – Though we have believed for years that maltodextrin preserves the sensitive nutrients from damage, our recent laboratory tests indicate that this product, over a year old, without maltodextrin, still has most of the enzymatic activity remaining. This is also good news for those who believe they are sensitive to Maltodextrin.

No Brown Rice and Kelp – BarleyMax is a pure juice product whose mineral and micro mineral values are as good if not better without the use of these additional ingredients. No MLM – What more can you say? This is just a straight purchase. You get what you pay for. You will actually get a better product, more servings, and a lower price. It’s simply a great deal.

Tastes Fresh – BarleyMax tastes fresh. The flavor is full of vitality and has an aroma of freshly squeezed juice. If you put BarleyMax juice, beside the freshly squeezed juice, you will have a difficult time telling the juices apart.

BarleyMax Nutritional Content Trace Minerals:

BarleyMax contains 100% organically grown barley juice concentrate and a small amount of enzyme-rich and nutrient-dense alfalfa. Alfalfa plants have roots that reach deep into the earth, drawing out precious trace minerals that are not found in other grasses. Enzymes are the life force of raw foods.

As we age our body’s ability to produce enzymes weakens resulting in poor digestion and elimination leading to acute health issues and chronic illness. We can conserve our enzyme potential by utilizing raw foods rich in enzymes.
