Summer Fresh Green Juice

Leave a comment

By now you probably have heard how great juicing can be for your body.  Well I have been juicing for over two years now and I feel amazing when I am consistent.  Not so amazing when I fall out of my routine.  Sometimes it’s hard to stick to something for an extended period of time.  Routines are easy to follow once you get into a mindset.  However, the minute you stray from your routine, it’s that much harder to find your way back.  I did indeed stray from my traditional morning juices and when I decided to get back to it, I learned that my tastes have drastically changed.  So I had to make some adjustments to my previous recipe.  At the moment I am hooked on this blend and it’s just in time for summer.
