Juicing for cold & flu season


Last week my son had a mild fever with a terrible cough and runny nose. Wanting to let his body do the healing, I thought it would be best to give him a fresh juice…and to make myself one while I was at it!

The recipe (all ingredients are organic):

2 Oranges, peeled

1 Lemon, NOT peeled

2 Royal Gala Apples

2 medium-to-large carrots

1″ piece of Ginger

Put everything throught the juicer, putting the carrots through last to push everything through.  Stir, serve immediately. Enough for a large cup for myself, and 6-8oz for him. Drink straight up – DELICIOUS!

Wouldn’t you know, his fever disappeared within 30 minutes and he hacked up SO MUCH phlegm. He didn’t cough again for the rest of the day!
