Fruit gives you direct energy. Before I even hit the coffee, it's half a pint of orange juice - that's six or seven oranges, but it's worth it.
I started drinking fresh juices about a year ago, when I got a personal trainer. He helped me to get off the over-use of alcohol and cigarettes. I used to drink myself to sleep and then get up and just have lots of water.
I had to stop that. He told me about energy-giving foods. Broccoli and carrot is a bit like V8 - you mix them and it gives it a spicy vegetable flavour. Things that are canned or preserved lose their goodness. When things are fresh, the energy is in there; it's alive, the molecules are growing. It makes me feel a lot clearer. I feel groggy otherwise."
