Red Chard, Dandelion, Parsley Juice

Juuuuuuuuuiccccccce! When everyone around you at work is getting sick, that's a big reminder to keep up with downing your awesome green juices everyday! Tell yourself that it's time for a screaming green meanie! Make something just like this juice, it tastes good, but has that dark green kick to it! Juicing fresh organic produce makes for a great green elixir of health! The celery, apple, lemon, and cucumber, add the sweetness to the chard, parsley, and dandelion mix. You can always add in an extra apple as well to keep the doctor away.

Swiss Chard is full of vitamin C, K, and A, along with minerals and phytonutrients, which makes chard a powerhouse of goodness. Regular intake of chard prevents osteoporosis, vitamin-A deficiency, and perhaps even colon cancer. (One caution: If you make oxalate stones in the urinary tract you will have to avoid chard, and spinach, or take with a lot of water. You can always substitute more dandelion or Romaine lettuce.) This juice, filled with all these good green veggies and herbs, has wonderful benefits towards your good health! Now here's to you feeling better, and raising your Immunity too!
