Juice Fast to a New You

Cherie Calbom, aka “The Juice Lady,” is releasing her latest book in January.

“The Juice Lady’s Guide to Fasting” is one of more than 30 books by the juicing expert and best-selling author, who lives in Coeur d’Alene.

The 256-page book (Siloam, $17.99) includes menus, recipes and guidelines for how to begin and end – as well as what to eat during – a fast.

Calbom appeared on QVC for more than 13 years promoting the George Foreman grill. She’s also worked as a celebrity nutritionist alongside Richard Simmons, and has appeared on many radio and TV shows.

Today, Calbom leads juice and raw food retreats with her husband, John Calbom, a Russian Orthodox priest and inspirational speaker. He focuses on mental and emotional detox while she teaches workshops on nutrition. Their next retreat, Juice Fast to a New You, is Jan. 13 and 14 in Spokane.
