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:
Kick Ass Juice
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!
