NATIONAL FRESH SQUEEZED JUICE WEEK
Every year on the third Sunday in January, National Fresh Squeezed Juice Week kicks off. The week celebrates the deliciousness and health benefits of fresh-squeezed juice.
Cold and flu season peaks between December and February. This means that the month of January is crucial for finding ways to keep germs at bay. One of the best ways to keep from getting sick is to boost the immune system. Sure, it’s a good idea to get the flu shot and practice good handwashing.
