Since I accidentally broke my last blender, thankfully grandad who doesn't live far away was able to loan me his in return of some of my health boosting natural juice.
With so many colds flying around and Leanora and I both been unwell we needed something that was natural, full of flavour and packed a punch to help fight any nasties and not one for medication unless we really have to I like to combat and fight off illness the natural way, by flushing it out with a tasty juice.
I whipped up this great booster juice, packed with orange, carrots a little bit of ginger and turmeric.
Turmeric is something I never thought to put in drinks, I normally add a dash into a curry, but as I am on a health kick and trying to get my Mumma Tum down and fight off this early spring cold, my grandad said it's perfect to drink in a juice to help battle.m a cold! With that information, I decided to investigate further, not that I don't trust him!
I was astounded by what benefits Turmeric has, so imagine my delight whilst investigating I was sent a pack of Crazy Jack Organic Turmeric and just in time too.
The benefits of Turmeric it that it increases antioxidants in our body as well as being a natural anti-inflammatory compound and is a natural liver detoxifier (great after a weekend)! Mix that with ginger, and you are off to fighting that cold, the natural way! Add a bit of Vitamin C from some large juicy oranges and carrots and bingo you've got your own homemade pray to get quick drink all at your fingers tips, well your juicer that you've borrowed from your grandad at least.
For those who are parents or have young siblings, this is a great way to get your kids to consume more vegetables and fruit. Leanora has been struggling a little with vegetables especially carrots she loves her some broccoli and cauliflower, but carrots, it's a real struggle, she tells her dad and I that it's for bunny rabbits not for Leanora, Mummy, Daddy or Milo! So what better way to trick her! I know bad parenting, I shouldn't be doing this, but a Mumma's got to do what a Mumma's got to do folks!
