Quick and Easy “V8″ Juice

Posted on June 2, 2012 in Blog - 5 comments - 1

This is one of my favorite juices for an afternoon “pick-me-up” as it is like a salad in a glass.  It is a green drink unlike the original V8 which is very tomato juice concentrate based with very little in the way of the other vegetables.  Even being greens heavy it tastes remarkably like the original formula but is bursting with phyto-nutrients and enzymes.
