Winter is coming and the flu is right around the corner, there is a way of preventing the runny nose, headaches and fever. How? Take care of your body, eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids stay away from junk food, eat fruits and vegetables, get plenty of sleep and exercise!

We all know that this is something we should practice all the time, but we also have the most awesome juice on the market and you can make it in your own kitchen!

Best of all it’s not processed and packed with all the artificial products and junk you don’t even know what are and how they are made!

All you need for this juice, is a blender or a juicer, oranges and fresh ginger root!

Did you know:

Ginger:

The health benefits of ginger are thought to include anti fungal, antibacterial, anti clotting, antiviral, analgesic, increases blood flow and often use for treating nausea caused by seasickness and morning sickness during pregnancy.

Oranges:

You may already know that oranges are a great source of vitamin C, but did you know just one orange alone supplies 116.2% of the daily value for vitamin C!!

Drinking one glass of fresh orange juice is more protective than consuming Vitamin C supplements. So we recommend you drink/eat at least one orange a day and throw out those vitamin supplements NOW! :)

After chocolate and vanilla, orange is the world’s favorite flavor!

Now with that information we hope we have convinced you to start making your own O.J at least every other day through the winter :)

O.J & Ginger Root Juice:

  • 3 fresh Oranges
  • 1/2 cm chunk of Ginger root
  • ice cubes

  1. Peel the oranges leaving as much pith as possible for a creamier and more nutritious juice.
  2. Juice the oranges and ginger together using a juicer and serve with ice cubes!
  3. If you’re using a blender you can mix all the ingredients together and strain if desired.
