Juice of the Day: Sunburst Juice!8:30 AM
I got this recipe from one of my favorite websites Reebot With Joe. It's a website all about juicing, making healthy smoothies and just optimizing your overall health. Joe who runs this website is actually the one who inspired me to go on the juice fast for 60 days after I saw his documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. If you're at all curious about juicing, check this movie and his site out!!
Here's the recipe:
Harness the sun’s orange glow with this simple and tasty juice. Bursting with Vitamin C, it’s perfect to keep colds away while promoting healthy, glowing skin. The red bell pepper plus an orange provides almost 500% of your daily Vitamin C needs. Nice! The carotenoids (or carotenes) that gives carrots and red pepper their colorful hue may also help reduce the risk for certain cancers, including breast cancer.
