A Sweet Sunday Delight

Grapes are very sweet but delicious! However, because they are high in sugar it's probably not a great  idea to consume too many of them late at night.  So, this simple sweet and sharp juice from Juices & Smoothies, page 93 is best enjoyed during a hot Summer afternoon or, as a wake-me-up first thing in the morning. It is sweet and refreshing and looks especially nice in a fancy glass.

Some health benefits I learned about ... Grapes
  • Eating grapes can help treat constipation, indigestion, fatigue, kidney problems and more
  • They are extremely high in antioxidants and a rich source of vitamins A, C, B6
  • Essential minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium are also found in grapes
  • Consuming ripe grapes early in the morning can help cure a migraine (good to know)
  • Grapes are especially delicious as wine!
