Fresh O.J with a Zing!

IMG_9983Homemade Orange juice with a Kick!

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.

Healthy Veggie Wrap

IMG_97577This wrap is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner! :) It’s healthy and really low in calories and fat. It’s great as a pure veggie wrap, you can also add some fish, chicken, black beans or even some chickpeas.

It’s important to choose a whole wheat tortilla because the white ones hardly have any nutritional value at all.

Ingredients:

  • Red, green or yellow Bell Peppers
  • Red Onion
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Lollo Rosso Lettuce
  • Rucola Lettuce (Arugula)
  • Cucumber
  • Tomato

 

1. Place the tortilla on a plate and add the Romaine, Lollo Rosso and Rucula Lettuce on top of each other.

2. Cut the remaining vegetables in chunks or however you want it, and place on top.

3. Then you add the chicken, fish, beans or peas on top and enjoy.

You Can Also Add:

  • Add some Tabasco sauce or chili peppers if you’d like it a bit spicy.
  • Avocado Hummus is also great with this
  • Low fat dressing (read the label and make sure it’s actually low in fat)
  • Add some red grapes or sweet corn for some sweetness
  • Basically anything can go with this wrap, make it your own with your favorite vegetables

How to make the chicken:

This is how I make my low fat chicken.

You’ll need:

  • Fresh chicken breast
  • Vegetable Stock (from the store or make your own, recipe coming soon)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Cut the chicken breast in half (split it in the middle to make two thin slices). Boil enough water so it will cover the chicken breasts. Add the vegetable stock, then place the chicken in the boiling water for about 15 minutes. You can add the salt and pepper before or after, whatever you prefer.

When the chicken is done, drain the water. Let the chicken cool and cut into chunks. Enjoy :)
