    I added a few strips of red bell pepper, 1 Tbsp. chopped green onion, 1/2 small stick celery, and fresh cracked black pepper. You could also throw in a baby carrot if you like, and a few slices of cucumber along with pinches of crushed dill, basil, and rosemary. - 2/9/08

    V8 makes a low sodium version which is great and I add just a couple of drops of evoo (either plain or in some homemade Italian salad dressing)as all those wonderful nutrients aren't absorbed by your body without a tiny bit of oil! - 3/17/09
