After a fabulous morning yoga session, or a run with the man, opt for this electrolyte-packed refresher. You’ll be a fan of aloe’s immunity-boosting powers and hydration, along with its nutritious bennies. Not just for cuts and scrapes, aloe is great for the inside of your body as well! Delish!
Clean green juicers: When selecting a juicer, get smart. Invest in a masticating, cold-pressed juicer, like a Hurom, Omega, or Norwalk juicer. Masticating juicers crush juice with little or no heat, giving you the full benefits of fresh juicing. Happy crushing!
