Love Your Broccoli Juice

Consuming cruciferous vegetables on a regular basis has been linked to helping support natural liver detoxification and reducing the risk of developing certain cancers.  But many people may not love the taste of some of these gems (think broccoli, cauliflower, radish, cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale) or may think that drinking foods like cabbage or broccoli in juice is just plain weird.  Here’s a way you can hide broccoli while still reaping its many benefits.  This juice is perfect for novice juicers, kids or cruciferous nay-sayers. 

Energize Your Workout with this Heartbreak Hill Juice

This juice is the perfect way to energize before your long (or even short) run. Beets are shown to help your body better use oxygen, meaning that it takes less effort to keep the same pace. Natural compounds in beets like nitrate are also demonstrating they can help lower blood pressure. Peak levels of beet’s performance boosting nutrients happen around 2-3 hours after drinking. So, wake up with this refreshing juice then tie your shoes to hit the road and train.
