Juicing

 

The wonders of juicing have been talked about by doctors and health nutritionists for decades and we are always hearing about amazing weight loss success stories with some lean, green, fat-burning machine.  But what does it really entail and why does it seem like an impossible feat to be able to really enjoy a mystery green drink made out of beet leaves and kale?

Happy Fall!
