This juice is a favorite of mine for cold season. It uses lots of citrus and root veggies which are easy and relatively cheap this time of year. It won’t make your cold disappear but it does give you a kick of energy, help clear your sinuses and help you to recover faster. And it goes without saying that it’s great even if you’re feeling well, too!

Makes 16 – 18 oz.

6 carrots (I often use a mix of carrots and parsnips)

1 small navel oranges, peeled and quartered

1 small lemon or grapefruit (your choice), peeled

1 inch knob of fresh ginger

Dash cayenne pepper


Prep and wash all produce.

Juice all ingredients except cayenne pepper. Add a dash of cayenne pepper to juice, and mix well. Serve.

extra tidbit: I usually add a few leaves of kale or a handful of spinach. It ruins the beautiful color but the added nutrients make it worth it!
