What's Up Doc?

An apple a day keeps the doctor away right! You just feel healthier once you knock a glass of this back. Perhaps it's psychological, but I swear I can see better too. Juice and serve over ice!

4 carrots
2 apples

Carrots are rich in betacarotene, which is good for the immune system as well as for skin and eye health.

Apples contain malic acid which helps digestion, and are high in pectin that helps lower cholesterol.

Inspired by Wendy, Kathryn and Natalie, encouraging us all to Live A Balance Life.

  3. swallow's nest in an edible gel form is supposed be good for the skin too. it gives that clear and pasty skin that we all love.

    it's mad expensive. my brother and i bought some for my mom for her birthday. it was like 400 bucks for like a 6-8 oz jar. Luckily we finally found the one of popular brand online (hongkong-bird-nest.50webs.com/index_e.htm and http://www.euyansang.com/)

    dad said it's really popular in indonesia. that a guy has to climb a high mountain to get the nest. that's why it's so expensive.

    i mean why doesn't the dude just look for the fabled korean swallow king, capture it and let it lay eggs full of gold! then, he wouldn't have to work so hard and climb them high mountains.
