DIY Health: Juicing at Home

I love juicing. I have found it to be a working woman's best friend in so many ways. Starting my day off with a healthy juice gives me the energy I need, plus a ton of nutrients and vitamins that I need that I can't always fit into my daily routine when things get really busy.

You can specifically choose foods that meet your body's health needs. Here are some delicious foods that come along with powerful health benefits.

Apples: Diabetes maintenance, reduces asthma, cancer prevention, lowers cholesterol, protects bones.
