Grab some Green Juice

If you’re anything like us, you remember a couple of years ago when the green juice fad was everywhere, I mostly saw this craze amongst my mom and her friends. You’re not alone if the idea of blending up celery, kale, spinach and cucumber does not sound like the most appealing choice, however it has many health benefits. Green vegetables are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals which help reduce inflammation. Many also enjoy drinking this vegetable-packed smoothie as an easy way to incorporate more veggies into their daily routine. However, be careful when adding fruits into the juice as these sugars may contribute to an unwanted increase in your blood sugar levels.
