I like to juice in the morning for many reasons. Firstly, I’m not the biggest morning smoothie fan. I like to eat a full breakfast as opposed to replacing my breakfast with a smoothie. Secondly, I have digestion issues, so drinking green juice ensures I get more of the nutrients into my blood stream. Thirdly, I love the way juice tastes and the enegy it gives me in the morning.
So, why green juice rather than a green smoothie? Juicing and blending are both beneficial to the body in different ways.
