I try to cook meals from plants, trees and animals for my family and I try not to buy or serve anything processed..  I personally add fresh juice to my diet and do not advocate juice cleansers or fasts that eliminate whole foods Since we were little, we were always told that we should be getting 6-8 servings of vegetables and fruits per day and very few of us actually get that.  Juicing is an easy way to virtually guarantee that you will reach your daily target for vegetables.   I usually feel so much better after drinking this first thing in the morning. But, juicing may be the quickest way to add nutrients to your body and feel totally energized.

Why I Love This Drink:

The vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients provided in these juice cleanse recipes are immediately absorbed into your system, giving you a healthy boost right away.  I totally need this keeping up with a spunky eleven year old and my two tiny tots.   The red packet of magic is another way I get going in the morning.  This packet is a complete powerhouse of antioxidants.
