power juice

To some making fresh juice every day is a bit of a pain. I get that. Although the more times you do it the more adept you become at it. Drinking fresh vegetable-fruit juice each day makes me feel better. I’m certain of it.  It takes me about 10 to 15 minutes start to finish. If I have to be up and out the door early, then I will wash and prep the veggies the night before. For maximum nutritional benefits it’s always best to juice just before you’re ready to drink it. Although when I was working in corporate America I used to make 2 quarts (litres) of juice and drink throughout the morning. Yes, that IS a lot.

A good juice extractor will set you back $150 maybe a little more but it should last you for years. This is my breakfast juice I make after I get back from my bike ride. It costs about $14 a week. Your joints, your skin and your general overall well-being will thank you for it. I call this power juice just because I like the name. Plus I’m sure if gives me some sort of witchy power, just look at the color of it.
