Superfood Highlight

Some people absolutely love cilantro. Others report that it tastes like soap. If you are in the “soap” category, just skip it in lieu of another dark leafy herb. However, if you are one of the lucky folks who find the smell “intoxicating,” use it often in green juices or smoothies or tossed into your favorite salad. Cilantro offers loads of antioxidants, phytonutrients, and minerals such as calcium and potassium. You’ll also get vitamins A, C, and K and even some B vitamins from this potent herb. It’s truly a cleansing and healing dynamo that’s fantastic during a juice cleanse. To store cilantro, loosely wrap the stems in a paper towel to keep it free of moisture. Put it in a plastic bag and store in the fridge to preserve it for a longer period of time. Stored properly, it can last up to three days. When juicing, cut off the long stems, as they can be bitter.

Thirsty Thursday

Honeydew is one of my favorite summertime fruits. Related to watermelon and cantaloupe (but better!), it simply melts in your mouth. It really sweetens up a green juice so nicely.
