It's DAY 22 of "Green Juicing" to celebrate our amazing Juicer Giveaway. I have announced two lucky winners, and have just notified a third person. Don't miss out on your chance to win one of the two remaining Juicers. Thank you for all of your lovely appreciative emails this week. I am so glad you are enjoying the juices. Please post comments under any recipes that you try. I would love to get your feedback.

Today, I am sharing another fabulous detox juice from the gorgeous Blythe Metz, host of the incredible web series, Blythe Raw Live that airs on WyTV, every Friday at 12PM PT on Ustream or BlytheRaw.com. Blythe interviews leading experts in natural health and nutrition, makes delicious raw vegan recipes, shares natural homemade beauty treatments and environmental education. I learn so much watching this show.

Blythe already shared her Greentini Juice earlier this month. This lovely lady is so stunningly gorgeous, and serves as a glowing example of the power of raw juicing. Check out the "Green Juices to Revitalize You" Google + HOA (Hangouts on Air) Blythe and I did last year about the health benefits of juicing. Blythe is so wonderful at using her platform as an actor, lifestyle personality, eco entrepreneur, and social activist to affect social change, and I have so much respect for her.

This fabulous watermelon, grapefruit detox juice mixing turmeric and radishes strikes a wonderful tasty balance with enormous health benefits. Watermelon juice is not only incredibly hydrating, it is a wonderful natural tonic for gastrointestinal complaints, pulmonary disorders, skin problems, arthritis, gout, headaches, and for boosting energy. Watermelon juice also flushes acids out of the body, renewing the blood.

Grapefruit contains valuable calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, vitamin C, as well as Vitamin A and some B complex vitamins. The pith contains powerful bioflavonoids which assist healthy blood capillaries, and help burn excess fat in the body. Radishes help to regulate the thyroid, and are great for constipation by stimulating the peristaltic movement of the colon. They also assist with liver detoxification and gall bladder inflammation.

What I love about this juice blend is the addition of turmeric, which is loaded with goodness. Turmeric contains powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents, as well as having natural antibiotic, antiseptic, and analgesic properties. Turmeric improves digestion, purifies your blood, lowers cholesterol, heals stomach ulcers, prevents gas and bloating, assists fat metabolism, and a slough of other things. It is just magical. I welcome any opportunity to include turmeric into my daily diet. This juice is a really delicious way to get your dose!

Blythe says of this juice, "This tasty bright pink juice helps rid your body of toxins and fat deposits, making your body function better and your skin glow brighter. A girl best friend for sure. Enjoy!"

Blythe, thanks for sharing yet another one of your wonderful creations.
You just RAWK!
