Bell Pepper Tomato Juice Recipe

Bell Pepper Tomato Juice Recipe
February is American Heart Month and it's a great time to talk about juicing for a healthy heart. Luckily for me and my family, we love homemade juice and whip up some type of juicy concoction several times every week. Sometimes we use all veggies, sometimes all fruit or we'll toss in a combination of them to come up with something delicious.

The American Heart Association recommends eating 4-5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. Juicing is an EASY way to meet this daily recommendation with delicious fresh squeezed concoctions. Like most people, I don't get enough servings of them every day, so one way we can all get more is to start juicing.

HUROM, global market leader for premium slow juicers with patented slow squeeze technology, has a delicious recipe to help you reach the daily recommended value! What an interesting combination of ingredients.

Bell Pepper Tomato Juice Recipe

1/2 cup of bell pepper
1 1/4 cup of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cups of orange
1/2 cups of carrot

Wash carrot and cut into appropriate sizes. Peel orange before cutting. Wash bell peppers thoroughly and cut in half. Remove seeds and prepare by slicing into appropriate sizes. Prepare cherry tomatoes by washing thoroughly. Put lever on "close." Alternate the order of ingredient insertion.

Tips For Your Reading

If you've ever wanted to get an idea as to what might happen in your future, then a free psychic reading might be the answer. This is a reading done by someone who uses cards and other tools to look at most of the major aspects of your life, such as romance, your career and your health. There are a few things that the psychic can look at with the tools that are used to see if there could be changes for the better or worse in the coming weeks and months.

Before you go for the reading, you need to prepare yourself mentally. Think about some of the questions that you want to ask the psychic. These questions should be more open-ended instead of those that require a simple yes or no as the psychic can't really elaborate. Find a quiet place to clear away any negative thoughts from the mind before you go to your appointment. When you meet with the reader, you want to be as relaxed as possible. This will be a time of questioning and anxiety for many, but if you are able to relax, then you will better be able to listen to what the reader is saying and ask further questions that can sometimes reveal more about your life.

Keep the energy flowing while at the reading. If there isn't any energy, then the reader won't have anything to grasp from, which means that the reading can easily go cold. The reader will likely be doing most of the talking, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be asking questions and making comments. Don't give anything away because this could mean that the reader is relying on you for answers instead of getting answers from the cards and other tools that are used. Don't set your mind up for disappointment. Not everything you hear might be positive, but it will be details that you need to accept in order to move on in life. At times, the answers you get might give you a chance to change some of the aspects of your life, such as a career move or your finances.
