Here is a little quiz to see just how much you think goes into your juices each day???

If you guessed the following answers, c, c, c and c then you would be right! You would be surprised about just how much raw materials need to be used to get a big volume of juice. So it is not surprising that juices can be more expensive than a salad, or a sandwich.
I read an article recently about someone who previously had made a habit of drinking fizzy energy drinks every afternoon. It was their “afternoon pick-me-up”. But then they discovered the power of fresh juice! They were simply amazed at the buzz they could get from a fresh fruit and vegetable juice! Think of all that raw nourishment - vitamins, minerals and enzymes - that you're flooding your body with!
