Happy New Year, dear readers! I hope you all had a delightful holiday filled with love and tummies filled with delicious food! Mine was slow and relaxing, with plenty of time for cooking, playing and reflections. Over the break, I came up with some new year’s goals and I thought it might be fun to share them with you. I hope that this inspires you create your own list!

  1. Consume more fresh pressed juices.
  2. Eat a greater variety of fruits and vegetables.
  3. Compete in a triathlon.
  4. Volunteer in the community.
  5. Live every day fully.

If one of your resolutions is eating healthier in the new year, this juice is a good tasty place to start. Kick things off with this beauty – a lovely pink, citrus-centric Grapefruit, Lime & Ginger Juice. This detoxifying and immunity-boosting juice recipe is easy to embrace post-holiday! It packs such a fresh punch of citrus and ginger flavor that you won’t feel you’re missing out on a thing. And by providing your immune system with a strong dose of vitamin C you’ll be putting yourself in the right frame of mind to embrace the new year in health.

Ingredients:

  • 1 grapefruit, peeled (I used ruby red)
  • 2 apples
  • 1 stalk of celery

  • 1/4 inch knob of ginger
  • fresh mint (optional)
  • sparkling water (optional)

Directions:

  1. Place grapefruit, apple, celery, lime, and ginger through juicer.

This juice is quite strong – but invigorating! And if you like, you could even add a splash of sparkling water.

    Omg looks delicious and super healthy. I think I have all of the ingredients in my fridge. The grapefruit also has anti-inflammatory properties, which will really help with my allergies. Can’t wait to try it. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
