Author Notes: A spicy salad in a glass, this one will get you rolling! Don’t be afraid of the onion and liquid aminos—they add a dramatic, magical middle note. With alkalizing vitamins and minerals, and cayenne to stimulate circulation
and boost the detox, this is the ultimate jump-start to your day.
