Juicing for better health

 By Cassie McCully

Though the weather resembles nothing near the sweet days of summer, you can enjoy sunshine in a glass any day of the year. 

If you don't already juice, here's a few reasons why you might consider doing so:

1)  Fresh juice provides vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, proteins, immunity building and more
2)  Regular juicers rave about an increase in energy, clearer skin, and a clearer mind
3)  It's an easy way to consume your USDA recommended 2-4 servings of fruit and vegetables each day

Interested in adding juicing to your diet?  Here's a great 30 days of juicing list, and a green detox recipe that will be perfect for after the holidays and to start the New Year off right.

Once warmer days do roll around, I'm definitely going to pay a visit to Portland's very own juice cart, "Sip," who made it onto Food & Wine's list of best juice bars.  They're now closed for the winter, but their steamed "Flu Slayer": apple, lemon, ginger and garlic would have been a great pick for the entire family during these last couple of weeks.

Do you juice?  What has been your experience?
