Lime Yours

Can you tell I’m running out of citrus puns? The day I’m vitamin C deficient is the day I die. Oranges are the best. Ginger is the best. I want to put them both in every juice I make forever. Seriously.

It was a beautiful day today, considering the horrible rain we’ve had lately (I’m a summer girl at heart). And! I’ve been having the worst allergies since I got back from Smithers – or maybe I’m just getting sick? Regardless, I thought I’d make a little sunshine in a glass to cure my seasonal woes, and this one was a kicker for sure.

This makes 2. Peel the citrus, remove the seeds if you want to save the pulp for muffins like me, and you’re set.

  • 2 oranges
  • 2 really big grapefruits
  • 1 lime
  • 6 strawberries
  • big ‘ole piece of ginger

Of course, how could I not put ginger in this? At this rate I should start growing it. So spicy. So good for you. Are you tired of me talking about the health benefits of ginger? Good, here’s some more. It’s good for your digestion! Good for nausea! It reduces inflammation! What more could you want in a spicy lil root. Aside from the ginger, this juice is packed with vitamin C, antioxidants, potassium, and vitamin A. There’s also some small amounts of folate, magnesium, and phosphorus. Good for your heart, and good for your metabolism, bones, and immune system. Get it in you!
