Sweet Greens Kiwi and Ginger Juice

Last fall for my school newspaper, I wrote an article here about the benefits and uses of ginger root. Ginger helps a lot of things such pain, healthy blood flow, stomach issues, and more.

A couple days ago I felt as if my body would benefit from some ginger, and I hadn’t had any in a while. So I made this ginger juice drink. It was VERY gingery, but I love ginger so it was delicious. When you make it, add more or less ginger according to preference. I’m always amazed by how much more energy and vitality I have after drinking a fresh glass of juice, and this case was no exception.

Juicing, more an anything else, has shown me the amazing healing and sustaining properties of whole foods, and vegetables. I’m not really a vegetable eater unless I’m really intentional about it, so juicing works perfect for me, as a way to get the amount of fruits and vegetables each day that I need. I love it.
