It’s not new to us that fruits and vegetables are packed with vitamins and nutrients that our bodies need to keep working smoothly. Living a healthy life means you have to eat healthily everyday. Luckily, even with today’s hectic and fast-paced lifestyle, you can do this easily by drinking your fruits and vegetables.
The first thing to do is to buy a juice extractor or the machine that makes getting the juice from fruits and vegetables a piece of cake. If you scout appliance stores or online shops, the small ones just cost less than RM 100.
