Hi, Gary Dowse here.
Vegetable juices come into their own during the winter season, especially root vegetables like radish, parsnips, swede, turnips, beetroots, and carrots. These winter vegetables are full of bio-available minerals that help build and strengthen the body during the hibernation period of winter.
Winter is all about citrus fruits. Lemon, lime, grapefruits, mandarin, tangelo, and of course oranges. These are particularly good for breakfast or lunch juices and are often used in juice shots to help strengthen the immune system during winter.
Winter is all about white vegetables. Leeks, radishes, kohlrabi, onions, fennel, cabbage, cauliflower, and garlic all help to strengthen your white blood cell count and boost your immune system.

Way back in 1997 I received my first black belt in Kung Fu. I was taught to fight, and I knew how to hurt people. One of my mentors said, “Gary you did good but if you want to be great you have to learn to heal people.” Hearing this changed my life and I have been passionate about health and healing ever since.
I studied Chinese Medicine with Professor Wong, trained for several years in Qigong with Master Liu, and became an Energy Medicine practitioner with the Four Winds Society under Dr. Alberto Villoldo and worked with clients for several years.
In 2013 both Julianne and I did a 3-day base camp up on the Gold Coast, with Cowboy Don Tolman – The Wholefood Medicine Man.
Learning the ancient wisdom of self-care, fasting, eating a wholefood plant-based diet, and following the 7 principles of health, as taught by Cowboy Don, set us both on a new path of juicing and teaching people about the preventative, restorative, healing powers of whole foods.
I very quickly wanted to learn more, so I furthered my studies getting certificates in Plant-based Nutrition with Coin T Campbell, Juice Therapy with The Juice Master Jason Vale, and earned a plant-based professional cooking certificate at Rouxbe International cooking school.
I now enjoy my day-to-day role as Master Juice Chef for Kuvings Australia and promoting my Juice Chef Recipe Book.
