Basil Apple Lime Juice

I don’t know about you, but I’m still feeling really stuffed from the holidays.  Getting back into my work and exercise routine has been slow moving, to say the least.  At times it has been downright painful. Since returning home I’ve been watching my processed sugar and gluten intake to try and detox from all of the heavy food I consumed for 11 days straight.  I’ve also dusted off my juicer.  A glass of fresh juice can do wonders when I’m feeling rough around the edges.

This basil apple lime juice is very refreshing and full of health benefits.  Basil contains antioxidants, can improve digestion and aid in stress relief.  Lime juice is a great source of Vitamin C.  Apples are believed to have cancer fighting properties.   I feel almost like new after enjoying a glass!

Almost.
