Cold Killer

I juice a few times a week. I think it is super fantastic. I actually crave kale and carrot juices sometimes, I realize this makes me a little on the odd side. I work with college students every week day in some capacity as mentor, professor, intern boss-lady, and boy-oh-boy do are they every germ-riddled. They eat like shit, never sleep, and basically act as petri dishes for cold cultures. I’m getting that spring drainage, sore throat, not sure if it is a cold or allergies or what right now and frankly who has time to be sick? So I thought I’d beat the may be cold into submission with a extra dose of vitamin C from juice, surely better than those powdered packets they sell at the drug store right? Hey, anything is worth a try. Here is what I gathered from the fridge for a yummy cold killer and soon to be be beach cocktail base (just add vodka). Cheers!

  • 3-4 inches fresh ginger, peeled
  • 8 minnolas, or other orange available, peeled (make ’em sweet-the rest of the ingredients are super tart)
  • 4 limes, peeled

Run through your trusty Breville¬†juicer. Drink up! I drank a glass and froze the rest into cubes for “dosing” through the week.
