Healthy Beginnings

Go Wild Juice!

Whenever you have a “down” day and are wondering what there is to celebrate, look no further. Celebrate yourself! Celebrate being healthy, or becoming healthy again. Because you will when you indulge in raw organic greens every day! The best way to take lots of greens on a daily basis without being bored is by making juices with a touch of wildlife! Wild edibles are nature’s best medicine. Combined with other greens and fruits, they create a true daily life elixir. Make it a fanciful experience by drinking your juices in your best glasses. Spoil yourself; you deserve it. Every juice you drink is a reason to celebrate, and so are you! To your health: Cheers!

TOOLS YOU NEED

A slow juicer

*If you don’t have one, blend the greens with a little bit of water and strain it through a sieve or nut milk bag
