gonna use this recipe!!
I like the idea of this drink but I can't eat grapefruit while taking a Statin for high cholesterol; can't eat carrots or cucumbers with allergies. Any other interchangeable substitutes for the detox drink?
I had no idea that cucumbers were such a great source of fiber. They're probably one of the easiest vegetables to eat! Perfect detox snack.
