Kick Ass Juice

It seems like every day I’m hearing people say ” Oh no, I’m going down with the flu”!

Yesterday afternoon, a dear friend of mine emailed me – “what do I do? I’m getting a cold, I feel it coming on – help”!

When I get these kinds of feelings, rather than filling myself with vitamin Cs in the form of pills, I load up on straight natural vitamin Cs! The ones you find in oranges, grapefruits, limes, lemons, kiwi, pineapple …….etc

Potent and effective as well as downright delicious!

This is what I do:

In a big jug of ice water I put slices of fresh ginger, lemon, and lime –  I was even so lucky this morning to find small fresh sprigs of mint in the garden!

It tastes delicious and it’s a great way to add natural vitamin C to your drink.

Here on the West Coast, we have a very popular local coffee brand called “Kick Ass Coffee”

Using that theme, I make Kick Ass Juice – if you try it, you will know that this is the perfect name for it!

This is what goes in it:

Lots of fresh oranges

Apart from this, for holding off the flu/cold bugs, I also drink hot and spicy ginger tea made from fresh slices of ginger, slices of lime and lemon. Just pour steaming hot water on – you can add a spoonful of honey if you like (,) Honey :-)

I hope these vitamin C boosters,  will help you flight off flues and colds  this winter!

Stay healthy!

  1. Anne I have to try your KAJ (I’m a fan of the KAC which we can get in Ontario. I read longingly as you mentioned your garden. With the cold spell we’ve been having I could really use a batch of this juice to ward off the flu. It has been going around; my daughter had it last week. Happy New Year and thanks for the healthy inspiration.
