Now nearly every day a study is done to weigh out either the pros or cons of the worlds daily drug of choice, Coffee. I personally love a caffeine boost, especially before a strenuous work out, but I don't like being dependent on something. My busy schedule has me to a point where without my coffee in the morning, Im even more of a bitch than normal (and who thought that was possible?) So how do I plan on jump starting my system in the morning while drinking juice? A kick ass blend of citrus and spice that'll wake you up quicker than any espresso.
We all know Vitamin C is the back bone to keeping your Immune System strong, but when we get enough in our diets, Vitamin C does a LOT more. It helps to detoxify our bodies, promotes healing of all our cells, and allows us to better manage stress. It also supports the good bacteria in our stomachs, destroys detrimental bacteria and viruses, removes heavy metals, protects us from pollution, and that's just the beginning.
My Spicy Citrus is the first part of my cleanse. Here is the breakdown. Simple. Easy. Efficient. The following recipe will make two large glasses, and I promise will wake you up faster than you can say "double espresso."
2 - Large Red Grapefruits
5 - Large Navel Oranges
Heaping dashes of Organic Cayenne Pepper
Ginger to taste
