Tastes good and it’s good for you!
I’ve been inspired to do a mini juice fast today. I love pumping my body full of nutrients and enzymes packed in a delicious juice! Here a few tasty, alkalizing drinks you can try for yourself:
-3 small beets, 1 grapefruit, 2 limes (don’t be alarmed, beet pigment doesn’t break down in digestion)
-1 cucumber, 3 celery stalks, 2 medium broccoli flowerets
-1 cantaloupe, 1 lime, 25 cherries (pitted)
-10.5 oz spinach leaves, 2 oranges, 3 kiwi fruit
-3 large ripe pears, 1 papaya, 1 1/2” chunk of Ginger (peeled and chopped)
-1 Cucumber, 4 celery stalks, 2 kiwi fruit
-3 Kiwi, 15 strawberries, 25 seedless grapes
-2 Oranges, 2 kiwi, 2 large carrot, handful of basil leaves
