Thyroid-Friendly Mediterranean Juice

Looking for a simple, 5-ingredient juice that’s also budget friendly? Savory juices can be a big hit for those looking for less sweetness in their glass. This veggie-heavy example fits well within the 80/20 Rebooting guidelines for a lower sugar juice that’s also high yield and perfect for anyone with a thyroid condition looking to limit raw cruciferous vegetables in their juice. I love Mediterranean cuisine, which happens to be one of the healthiest on the planet!
