Wintergreen Juice

Chilly outdoors and a cozy inside is what this time of year is all about here in New England!  Warming up with tea or soup is always welcome, but even cooler beverages like juice can feel warming, when made with certain ingredients.  I love adding in seasonal vegetables and fresh herbs and spices to add nutrients, flavor and warmth.  Good for skin, immunity and energy, simple juices can offer many benefits. This juice is lower in sugar, making it a healthy choice for those with diabetes or looking to cut sugar intake.  To make this juice thyroid-friendly see the substitution list below.
