Continuing our Juice recipe series (those which don’t require a juicer), this is a great juice for after your workouts! Almonds’ protein helps build and repair muscle, plus the potassium (twice as much as you get in two bananas) balances your electrolytes and fluids.

Simply blend, and enjoy! 



Continuing my juicing series for the day, here’s one that promises to help lift your spirits, give a burst of energy and ward off anything that fabulous immune system of yours might be fighting off.  A swig of this vitamin-packed (A, B, C, E) beverage fuels your whole body, and helps fight aging: Lutein plus vitamins A and C up collagen production (for strong bones and younger-looking skin).

Who can beat that?
