Juicing 101

I’ve always been a healthy eater, but my cancer diagnosis pushed me to bring it to a whole new level I never dreamed about. My mantra each morning is, “Rise and Blend,” There’s a ton of controversy on the difference between juicing and blending, so here’s my take in a shortened version.
