I have a bit of a love/dislike (hate is too strong!) relationship with juicing. I absolutely love how it makes me feel, but I really dislike all the prep and washing the juicer! So I tend to go through phases. Right now I’m into juicing in a big way. I’ve started getting a Juicing Box delivered with my weekly Veg box from Rocket Deliveries and I can’t help but be super inspired seeing this rainbow coming through my door every week.
Keeping my immune system supported is my number one priority right now as there are so many colds and flus doing the rounds I’m in need of some serious nutritional support. Juicing is amazing for boosting your daily intake of nutrients as the body metabolises it much quicker without the fiber. Helpful as well if you are sick with a diminished appetite!
This week I had all of the right ingredients to make a juice really high in vitamin C. Heavy on citrus fruits, this juice is super tangy to taste with the added bonus of turmeric and ginger to spice things up a bit, not to mention overflowing with vitamin C. A little bit of Beetroot gives it the gorgeous colour and has the added health benefits of supporting the liver, strengthening the heart and nourishing the blood…woohoo!
Recipe | Vit Hit C

- 1 Pink Grapefruit, peeled
- 1 Lemon, peeled
- 2 Carrots
- 1 small Beetroot

Put the orange, grapefruit and lemon into the juicer and plunge through on the lowest setting. Then put the beetroot in first, followed by the ginger and turmeric, carrots on top and plunge through on the highest setting. Enjoy!!
