Day 347- Nutrition Bite

Green juices cleanse the body of pollutants and have a rejuvenating effect. Made form a variety of green vegetables, green juices are rich in chlorophyll, which helps to purify the blood, build red blood cells, detoxify and heal the body, and provide the body with fast energy. Green juices can be made with alfalfa sprouts, barley, grass, cabbage, kale, dandelion greens, spinach, and other green vegetables, including wheat grass. To sweeten and dilute green juices, try adding fresh carrot and apple juice. Try to drink 8-10oz a day. They should be consumed in moderation.

Sugar Preacher's Experience

I need to remind myself the importance of green juices. Tonight, I went to a b-day party with junk food (cake, ice cream, and candy). I should have brought green juices to the party. Next time, I'll make sure that I bring a healthy snack. St. Patrick's Day is around the corner and a green drink would be very complementary and a festive holiday beverage.
