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 Р 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:

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 ūüôā

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

Stay healthy!

The power of natural

This time of year is prime time for colds and flus Р people are heading for their flu-shots trying to  prevent the dreaded symptoms of flu, headaches, aching bodies, sneezing and endless running noses.

At the checkout counter in the supermarket we find not only candy to tempt us, but also bags of vitamin C powder that magically is supposed to help us fight the flu.

In my life instead of pills, tablets and bags of vitamin C,  I prefer boosting my immune system the natural way, with freshly squeezed delicious juices Рthat are naturally packed with fresh vitamins and minerals. Like this one, for instance, freshly squeezed carrot juice with apples, lemon and ginger, made with all fresh organic ingredients.  Carrots, filled with vitamin A, organic local apples filled with fibre, minerals, and vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, K, as well as loaded with antioxidants.  Slices of fresh ginger that are packed with goodness and always has been known and praised, for its medicinnal powers to cure all kinds of ailments such as nausea, colds etc

Along with freshly squeezed lemon, with its high content of vitamin C and  its power to clear up colds. This is a seriously healthy drink which tastes delicious at the same time!

I believe this is so much more powerful than any vitamin supplement, ¬†it’s natural, fresh and potent. A perfect way to boost our immune system naturally.
