Perk up your Monday Morning

Enjoy this pick-me-up juice made using half a cantaloupe, two pears and a piece of fresh ginger root (Juices & Smoothies , page. 98).  It's a great way to start your morning or to enjoy mid-day, or any time you are looking for a quick and natural energy boost.  Serve over ice.

Some health benefits I learned about ... Cantaloupe
  • A wonderful source of vitamins A, B6 and C, and the mineral potassium
  • And a great source of dietary fiber
  • It protects your cells
  • Rich in beta-carotene, which can help lower the risk of cancer
  • Cantaloupe as an anti-inflammatory
  • It's low on the glycemic index
