About the Blog:
The Vegetable Centric Kitchen is dedicated to my passionate love of vegetables, spending hours in the kitchen concocting deliciousness from them, and shoving heaps of their goodness through my juicer. I share my experiences enjoying a detox diet-lifestyle inspired by the work of Natalia Rose whom I’ve studied under and whose books, without a doubt, have changed my life.

About the Blogger: Twenty-Something. Vegetable-Obsessed Foodie. Yoga Lover. Singer of Showtunes. Introverted Bookworm. Collector of Skin Decor. Seattle Dweller. Detox Nerd and Diet Experimenter. I eat salads the size of my head.

I make my home in beautiful, rainy Seattle with my gorgeous wife (and Veggie Kitchen Taste Tester) Britney.

In June 2012 I took Natalia Rose’s Advanced Detox Training in New York City and plan on one day soon starting a health and detoxification coaching practice. Learning about and dedicating myself to a lifestyle of health and detoxification has saved my life. In the past few years I’ve seen how powerful a vegetable centric diet combined with juicing and colon cleansing can be. I’m infinitely clearer and easily happier living this way, not to mention having lost 30 pounds in the process. More before-and-afters along with my story here. On March 13th, 2013 I embarked on a 90 day juice feast and blogged daily about my journey.

My Jalapeno-Cilantro Green Juice is featured in Kris Carr’s Crazy, Sexy Juice. I’ve also guest posted for Oooh Lola, Queer Vegan Food, and Modern Hippie Mag and have an interview posted at Hooked on Health.

    Can you tell me the name of the home colonic unit you have? And where you purchased it?

    • Rande McDaniel

      Hi Delaney! What I have is a combination tubing from the Woods Institute and a water filtration unit that you can find out about if you’re a member at DetoxTheWorld.com. It’s also possible to set up a full home gravity unit with pieces from momentum98.com although I have never ordered from them.
