It seems like the Cold and Flu are running rampant this season! Bleh.

Although I haven’t had it bad, Lauren just can’t catch a break, with her cold.

A sure way to boost the immune system and feed it valuable nutrients can be very simple. Make fresh JUICE!

This concoction is a sweet way to start your morning. You probably won’t even need your full breakfast after filling up on these goods.

When you feel a tickle in your throat or find yourself sneezing a little too often, it’s time to turn to the good stuff.

Ginger, beets, carrots, oranges and garlic are all key juicing ingredients for immune system support.

If I’m feeling the first signs of something coming on, I’ll especially go heavy on the ginger and garlic, to ensure my body is getting the things it needs to fend off sickness (and vampires), but you don’t always have to sacrifice flavor. Some people need to ease into the more harsh tasting juice ingredients, and that’s perfectly OK.

Lauren isn’t a fan of juice when its ginger-loaded, and likes to steer clear of the fresh garlic altogether (unless she’s sick and I trick her into drinking it so she gets better).

She will thank me one day for that. I think.

For more ideas, there are some other great tasting juice recipes here. Juicing is something that you can totally play around with, and adjust to your liking!

 

Morning Red Juice {Carrots, Citrus, Strawberry, Beet, Ginger}

Serves 2, or 1 big serving of juice

Ingredients:

8 carrots, tips discarded

4 small Valencia oranges, peeled (or 2 large)

1/2 grapefruit, peeled

3-5 strawberries, depending on preference and size

1 small beet

1 apple, cored

1-inch fresh ginger

 

Directions:

Prep all produce before starting to juice. Send the harder produce through first (carrots, ginger, beet, apple), followed by the strawberries, oranges, and grapefruit.

Consume within the first 10-15 minutes to benefit from the most nutrients.

Little Yellow Note: When peeling citrus, it is easiest to slice off the outer skin with a knife. Leaving on the pith (outer white part) is fine. Apple seeds contain trace amounts of arsenic, so I like to core my apples. You can start with less ginger and work your way up to using more, if it is too potent for you.
