Anyone who knows me can tell you that I can't shout the praises of (veggie heavy) green juice enough! Packed with minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants. It's quite literally a glass full of HEALTH. I purchased my juicer about 6 years ago. It was the twins first year of life and I was tired all the time, tummy issues galore and my body ached all over. It was as if I had given my sweet ladies everything I had and after they were born my body was DEPLETED of all its nutrient stores. During this time I serindipitiously watched a documentary called Crazy Sexy Cancer. I can't recommend it enough. It's an uplifting documentary about a young lady looking for a cure and finding her life! She shouts the praises of a plant strong diet and belts out to high heaven the glories of green juice. Well I jumped on the band wagon head first and never looked back.
I didn't think I had cancer, but I knew something was amiss. I figured, if this amazing women who had stage four cancer can heal her body and thrive vibrantly then there was definitely a hope for me. And I was right.
