How to start with Green Juice Detoxing

To start with green juice detox diet, the most important appliance you need is a good juicer. A good juicer performs better in times when you need to squeeze hard or dark leafy veggies. Of course, you can start with a smaller one and upgrade to a better one when you feel like it.

      Absolutely! Detoxing is the bonus on top of getting daily veggies. Say if you would take the juice with empty stomach, it can really improve skin quality.

      Thanks for the comment btw!

      Couldn't we benefit from the jucies, even if we weren't "detoxing"? Seems to me, we would still get out daily veggies.
