Are you ready for bathing and beaches?

If not, you might try to replace a heavy meal with a light one and add these amazing and healthy bathing suit beverages.

Try some healthy, vitamin and anti-oxidant rich fruit and vegetable juices to give yourself, your body and even your brain a boost. Here are my favorites and yes, I do include water (always an excellent choice) but you may also find some new juices to try.
