Juices are the new big thing and with ventures like Juice Plus saturating the market, everyone is getting on the bandwagon. So what’s so good about a juice in the morning? Juices have a lot of nutrients which make your skin glow, your eyes sparkle and it’s so much more palatable then a plate of Kale.

So what sort of juice should you be going for? Here’s a couple of recipes to get you started.
