Lemon Detox Drink

Happy Sunday blogging family,

For all of us in the US we got an extra hour of sleep. Wow, did I need it! I ended up watching classic scary movies that are filmed near the beach. Has anyone seen The Last Wave? It made me jump and I love scary mysteries. The Birds was almost comical but The Fog was perfect for a Halloween night at the Pacific Coast.

During the summer, I like to drink citrus carrot juice after a run. It gives me a boost of energy and promotes healthy skin. I also read that vitamin C aids in the absorption of iron. If you don’t have a juicer, all you need is a blender and a fine-mesh sieve.  Continue reading
