Fresh Carrot & Beet Juice Smoothie

For 2016 I seriously stepped up my healthy eating and drinking game. Smoothies are a major must have in my daily diet. Consuming raw fruits and vegetables daily give my body the nutrients it need to function at peak performance. This smoothie is quick to prepare if you juice your vegetables ahead of time.

It's so important as we get older to be more conscious of our diet. Consuming more whole foods is much better for our body. It aids the body in so many different ways, replacing nutrients and vitamins that is lost due to the aging process the body is going through.
