Five Green Juices

Most people know that greens are good for you and that adding them to your diet has numerous health benefits. Yet most people don’t want to have a bowl of spinach salad for breakfast, especially when it’s 6 a.m. and they’re heading out the door to start the day. Is this you? Green juices to the rescue! I believe green juices should be at the top of everyone’s list as staple juices in a healthy diet. Green juices include a portion of leafy green vegetables, which contain high doses of blood-building chlorophyll. Green juices also help to alkalize the pH balance in your body and rebuild red blood cells, resulting in sky-high energy, healthy detoxing, and increased well-being.
