Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - Maybe you over-indulged this past Thanksgiving weekend and need to reset your diet? Or, maybe you are feeling GREAT and want to stay feeling that way through the holidays, either way I have you covered with a holiday inspired green juice.
Green juice alkalizes and energizes the body plus the holiday flavors of pear, ginger, fennel and pomegranate not only add a festive flare to this beverage but are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants which help boost the immune system and ward off sickness. Drink this hearty juice as a meal replacement or as a snack between meals. Let the holiday hoo-ha begin, you'll be prepared…Cheers!
"Fall Into the Holidays" Green Juice
Makes 8-16 ozs
2-3 Celery ribs
3 C Dark leafy greens leaves (kale, chard, beet greens, spinach, etc...)
1/2 Fennel bulb
1/2 C Pomegranate seeds
• Run all of the above through a juicer (ginger and celery should be juiced first because they tend to clog the juicer)
• Stir to incorporate flavors and enjoy!
*Can thin with purified water, if needed.
Maranda teams up with E.S.C.A.P.E. Fire Safety for some holiday advice.

Did you know the Kostume Room is a wig bank for the American Cancer Society? They offer free wigs to anyone undergoing chemo or radiation. Gayle Vaartjes is the owner of the Kostume Room and came up with the idea after she was diagnosed with cancer in 2004. She was looking for a way to give back.
