Joe’s Journal: Day 13 – Greenmarket Surprise

By: Joe Cross

I hope you’ve been enjoying reading  my journal entries. I’m reflecting on my 60 Day Reboot as part of the celebration of our 2nd anniversary of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and to relive my experience. Be sure to tune into our anniversary celebration – we’re giving away a Breville Juice Fountain Crush a Day for 60 days. We have 48 more juicers to give away so don’t miss out.

Now let’s take a look at Day 13 of my 60 Day Reboot…

October 24, 2007

Day 13: I stumbled on nooks and crannies of the city I’d never noticed before, and had a couple of big “Eureka!” moments about places I hadn’t previously paid a lot of attention to, like the Greenmarket in Union Square, off 14th street. That place is amazing. To my astonishment, I found it offers about 1,000 different varieties of fruits and vegetables grown by local farmers. Turns out, the place attracts about a quarter of a million visitors each week, and chefs from many of New York’s best restaurants – including Momofuku, Butter, Union Square Café, Koi and Angelica Kitchen – create their menus from what they find there.

Right around the corner on 16th street, I discovered a great juice bar where I often stopped to order a fresh apple juice or what I call a “Mean Green”, which consists of kale, apple ginger, carrot, celery, and lemon. During the course of my Reboot, this was my staple.

More than 20 million people around the world watched Joe Cross juice his way across America, losing 100 pounds and getting off medication in Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. The film ignited a juicing movement. Viewers around the world have been inspired to start juicing, lose weight and get healthy - and as a result of the film over 370 million glasses of fresh juice have been consumed, 370,000 tons of fruit and vegetables consumed, more than 24.8 million pounds of weight lost, and over 220,000 people are now medication free. Joe's second film, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 was released in November 2014. Through his journey and the lives of the people he meets throughout the film Joe shares all that he's learned about how to stay healthy in an unhealthy world, revealing that most of us really do have more control over of our health than we think - and that none of us are perfect, especially Joe himself! His book, The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet, hit the New York Times' best seller list in March 2014, and the companion guide The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Cookbook launched that summer.
