The past few days, I’ve been experiencing cold like symptoms. Besides upping my intake of raw garlic (which is anti-bacterial) I’ve also been increasing my intake of select juices.
This morning I juiced carrot, ginger, and garlic (all three awesome for cold prevention). And promptly drank the blend. It tasted great. Juiced carrots are sweet, ginger added a spicy kick, and garlic was added since its my go to ingredient when fighting a cold.
I started juicing religiously about seven years ago. I did a lot of research on the topic, and finally purchased a Green Star juicer. It’s a solid juicer that easily juices whatever I toss at it including the harder vegetables like beets and jicama. It’s a bit expensive costing me well over $300, but it has definitely paid for itself since purchasing freshly made juice would have been more expensive.
My daughter loves freshly made juices also, and seems to enjoy when I create something new. I like that she prefers freshly made juices/smoothies over the overly the sugary beverages (devoid of nutrition) that flood our supermarkets.
