“As the group grew, the two most common questions we heard were, what kind of juicer do you use and do you have any recipes? Since we make our recipes on the fly, we just told people to look at our photos for the recipes.”

What started out as a means to find temporary peace in an otherwise painful existence became a lifestyle change, a hobby and is now a book, Faces of Juicing, Visual Juicing Recipes; available in both paperback and Kindle.
A long time sufferer of Rheumatoid Disease, previously known as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Tanya Martin had recently relocated from Indiana to California when her boyfriend Lloyd tried to get her to join him in his juicing regimen. While she would try sips of the juices Lloyd prepared, Tanya was just not enjoying the juice enough to make her want to turn it into a daily routine. The move to California had been particularly tough on Tanya and she was in severe pain 24/7 making exercise very difficult, and proper eating went to the wayside as it took too much energy for her to prepare a proper meal. One night, Tanya watched the movie Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. It was a life changing event for her. The next morning she asked Lloyd to show her how to use his juicer.
As Tanya tells it, “I have been taking multiple drugs for more than nine years, beginning when I was first diagnosed with RA. I had been in remission for a short while prior to my move to California, but fell out shortly before my move. In that time I gained a lot of weight and I knew I was not eating properly. I decided that juicing would enable me to get a good daily dose of fruits and vegetables; in addition, juicing would give me the vitamins I needed without having to take more pills.”
Tanya has been an avid photographer for many years, but the pain from her Rheumatoid Disease made it virtually impossible for her to carry her camera around, so she sought a way to let the “inner artist” in her get out. She eventually found herself playing with her food before she added it to the juicer. While creating the designs it brought her some relief from her pain as she concentrated on her creations. She started making basic designs with the fruits and vegetables she prepared daily; she would then take a photo of the designs with her iPhone and post them on her Facebook page. It was not long before she created a Facebook group, I Take Pictures of My Fruits & Vegetables Before I Juice Them, which quickly grew in popularity. “It seemed like all of our friends were jumping on the juicing bandwagon and Lloyd and I were happy to guide them along,” Tanya explained. “As the group grew, the two most common questions we heard were, what kind of juicer do you use and do you have any recipes? Since we make our recipes on the fly, we just told people to look at our photos for the recipes.”
After several months of posting photos on Facebook, one of Tanya’s friends suggested that she had enough photos to fill a book. With that comment, Faces of Juicing was born.
Faces of Juicing is now available in paperback and digitally on Kindle. There are more than 50 juicing recipes complete with full color photos and an itemization of the produce used in each juice. Each juicing recipe is tasty and healthy, with lots of variety in the produce used resulting in very flavorful drinks.
