Get Juicy!

Flip to page 60 in the June Issue of the Vancouver View for my recent article on some Serious Summer Sipping!

Here are a few great ingredients and their amazingness:

Apples are filled vitamin C, antioxidants, and soluble fiber. They are also a great way to naturally sweeten an otherwise bitter juice.
Beets are blood-builders. They detoxify the blood and then renew it with minerals. Combined with carrots, consuming beets is a major way to heal the liver and kidneys.

An excellent source of antioxidants and beta-carotene, carrots are easily assimilated into our bodies. They play an outstanding role in anti-cancer effects on the body and provide optimal immune support.
