Healthy Juicing If a blueberry can protect my heart and an apple improve my memory, what an orange can do for me? Juicing is a health trend that’s part and parcel of everyday living. It seems like everyone is juicing, but Not every glass of juice is a healthy one. So to make sure you are having a healthy glass, we highly recommend homemade fresh juicing without the added sugar that is sometimes added to the juices you buy. If you are excited about juicing, you should be ready to bite the bullet and invest in your own slow juicer which is efficient in juice extraction. Below are quick and easy juicing recipes that should get you started on a healthy juicing journey. Green earth goodness!

I am wondering if in that line of thought you’ve ever thought of YOU, not to be confused with the Netflix series YOU, but rather you. Have you ever thought of expressing love to yourself? You may be thinking, “Why should I do that?” “Isn’t that something someone else is supposed to do?” Well, yes and no, because, while receiving love is not a bad thing, we should also think about ways to appreciate ourselves. Remember that YOU have been under your skin through it ALL! The bad and the good, the thick and thin, and YOU are the only one that has pushed through those low and dark…
