Our lives move very fast these days. And the pacing up speed takes away a lot
of precious health along with it. We indulge in eating junk food, not drinking enough
water and sometimes even skipping meals, though none of this can be counted as a
fault on our part. It is the speed that takes it all. But we cannot afford to slow
down, can we? We need to keep up with the pace. But at the same time, we also do
need to take care of our health if we want to go on for a longer time. Because if
you ignore your health, it is most likely that you will fall sick, sooner or later.
And then you will be compelled to slow down.
Hence to balance this unhealthy lifestyle, how about we start our day with a
glass of detoxifying juice? Here goes the recipe for this glorious green beauty.
