Memory Juice

One of my many childhood memories that puts a smile on my face is - my father coming home from work with paper bags of groceries.  He loved fresh food and was a big fan of juicing.

I remember him buying different fruits and veggies and juice them for us (kids) all the time.  He'd explain that we were getting all the vital nutrients faster that way than through solid foods.
In fact juicing makes it easier for your digestion.  It also allows you to fully absorb the vitamins and minerals that normally get destroyed by heat, processing and certain chemicals.


By adding this method to your diet and lifestyle will make a difference in your overall health and soon you will notice the rewarding results too.  It will feel like you've been refreshed!

It is important to buy a good quality juicer if you are thinking about using it quite regularly.  Do your own research and know what kind you want to purchase.
Once you find some good recipes and like the taste (after trying), stick with it and enjoy your drinks as often as you'd like.  You will be pleasantly surprised:)

In all honesty, there are types of vegetables that are not all that enjoyable to eat, but when juiced and mixed with other tasty fruits and veggies can be very pleasing.

Here are a few fresh drinks you can try and let me know if you like them:)

Note: You can add, subtract or twist it to your taste between the ingredients (or add spices).
