SUPER GREEN JUICE
Adding fresh homemade, cold-pressed juice to your daily routine is a great way to add more vegetables and fruits to your diet. It is more nutrient dense than store bought and also not so full of sugar. Even no sugar added claims still mean you are drinking more sugar than juice! All due to their processes.
At times it can be hard to get a good variety and amount of different fruits and vegetables into your diet by eating them, so by adding cold-pressed juices into your routine helps give you that added nutrient boost! When you have a glass of fresh cold-pressed nutrient dense juice, it is absorbed into the body in about 10-15mins!
Our Super Green Juice is a daily staple in our house. It is a drink that is reached for mid morning with a snack , as well as mid afternoon when we need that energy pickme up. It is light, crisp, and refreshing and packed with anit-cancer properties. It is also full of nutrients that help with a wide range of things from reducing inflammation, helping reduce cholesterol levels. It helps protect the heart, blood vessels, and nerves as well as detoxify. The super green juice is high in soluble fiber (thank you apples!) and is a great source of calcium, copper, manganese phosphates, potassium, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C , & K. Really, what does this drink not give you?
