Eat Healthy Without Starving

By Liane Wansbrough, CNP, NNCP

Get Your Glow On With Green Juice

Summer is the season to juice. As the mercury rises our bodies naturally crave water rich foods, such as raw fruits and vegetables. They are nature’s perfect hydrators, while still packing a nutritional profile. This means you’re able to cool down your body’s internal fire by consuming an abundance of raw produce at your local Health Shop and Farmer’s Market.

Now take that produce, run it through the juicer, and you have THE ultimate summer beverage. Full of phytonutrients, living enzymes, vitamins and minerals, that will give you a ‘glow’ that no summer bronzer or illuminator will do.

How to get a juice-loving lifestyle beyond the bottle and into your kitchen?
