This juice is a nutritional powerhouse, providing vitamins, calcium, and trace minerals. It is also low in calories and sugars, making it an ideal weight-loss drink. When I’m in need of a detox, I’ll make this juice in the morning and have one serving for breakfast, and 1 for lunch, followed by a light dinner.
