Food as Medicine

The antioxidant lycopene gives tomatoes their red color, may help protect against prostate cancer, and has been shown to slow macular degeneration.

2 celery stalks, juiced
2 lemons, juiced
1 carrot, juiced
1 red pepper, juiced
1/4 cup *agave nectar
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 pinch cayenne pepper

1/4 cup watermelon, diced

1/4 cup cilantro sprigs
