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!
Anne – this sounds like ambrosia from the Gods! THANK YOU for recipe!
Thank you Laurie! Ambrosia from the Gods, that’s exactly what it is 😉
🙂 I have been making something similar except for lime and fennel 🙂
Sounds great Paula 🙂 Freshly squeezed juice is good no matter what – fresh and delicious!
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.
Ahh I hope you will try it and that you ward off the flu!! Also hope your daughter is better now!
Happy New Year 🙂
Yum Yum yummmm! I love it too.😊
Yum Yum Yummmmm! That’s pretty much it Sophie – perfect description 🙂 XXX
Bookmarking this post so that I’m ready if and when I start feeling the bug. LOVE the fennel. Thanks, Anne!
Thank you Annie!
The fennel tastes so good in this juice – I start drinking it before the flu even get a chance to consider me 🙂
Thanks so much for the recipe, Anne. I feel the need for something like this at the moment. 🙂
