Juicing a New You

I started my juicing craze about 5 months ago. Since we are trying to get pregnant, I thought this might help. I started juicing every morning. Before this I would drink fresh juice once a month. I even got my husband enjoying it. He looks forward to his green -reddish breakfast. I start with one garlic clove, small piece of organic ginger, small piece of beet(not too much it will make you sick), 2-3 sticks of celery, red cabbage, Kale, spinach, carrots, and apple. I put in a little cayenne and kelp powder. This might sound gross but the apple makes it a little sweet. The juice fills me up in the early morning. First, find a juicer that isn’t too tough to manage. Second, find your perfect veggie combination that works perfect for you. Juicing is amazing!!
