Not just for St. Patty's Day: #gf Green Juice

The busy week last week caused me to forget posting this, but I think it's a GREAT SPRING POST too.

We all need healthy!

With St. Patrick’s Day less than a week away, it’s time to start thinking about what you will be drinking for this fun green holiday. There is no need to sacrifice your diet in the name of green. This year celebrate St. Patrick’s day in a healthy and delicious way.  No food coloring is necessary to make these drinks festive.  These juice recipes are packed with natural ingredients and essential nutrients to help keep you energized and healthy. These green beverages are so delicious that you will wonder why you spent so many years drinking beer and cocktails infused with artificial colors and sweeteners.

Juicing is a great way to take in valuable nutrients without having your body word hard to break down the fibers.  Through juicing, the food value is readily available to your body in larger quantities then when you eat the fruit whole.  The benefits of consuming juiced fruits and veggies include keeping your heart, liver and kidneys strong and healthy.  Plus, juicing has been shown to provide significant health benefits to cancer patients.
