I’m so proud of my friends and readers for jumping on the juicing kick. Look at this beautiful spread and the coloring of the juice before stirred. How can you not be motivated to give this stuff a try. That’s all I’m suggesting, try it for three months and see how different your body feels and respond to all the nutritional health benefits. In case you missed my last bit of good news, I recently had lab work done and my cholesterol dropped 17 points – that’s huge!!! My grandmother died from heart disease and high cholesterol, my grandfather died from diabetes, and both my other grandparents died from cancer. I don’t have to be a product of their genes and neither do you.
So very proud of you Roxanne!!!!
