Spring Time Fruits & Veggies

When I posted a delicious juicing recipe, many of you said you wanted to add more fruits & vegetables to your diet.

An easy way to do that is to go to a local farmer's market - the fruits & vegetables that are in season will be there for a decent price.

Having healthy fruits and vegetables in your diet is very important...it helps prevent: heart disease, strokes, diverticulitis, some types of cancer; and controls your blood pressure and protects you against cataract degeneration or vision loss.

Every fruit & vegetable is full of different essential vitamins and minerals - especially depending on the color. It is important to consume as many different fruits and vegetables of various colors.

There are so many ways to add these fruits and vegetables to your diet - delicious recipes, along with juicing!

  • Apricots

  • Carrots
