Sweet September Juice

Summer produce is vibrant and fresh but sadly the season is winding down in many regions.  I love fresh juice and I’m often looking for a great tasting veggie-heavy option.  This mostly-veggie (lime is the only fruit!) gem is full of health promoting antioxidants in the carotene family thanks to the red pepper and carrots.  Lime not only adds a great flavor but phytonutrients with metabolism and immune supporting actions, like vitamin C, limonoids and even has some calcium. Enjoy while you still have access to these seasonal veggies.
