During the winter, when most fruits are out of season, I crave something like grapefruit juice: a natural energy drink to balance out a heavier winter diet and decrease mucus from holiday food.
Thank goodness, citrus comes in season. Grapefruit is my favorite. Over the winter you can buy them for $3-$5 a bag (Walmart is usually cheapest).
My kids love to help with juicing and eating leftover pulp.
Fresh-made juice gives more energy then store-bought juice. This is because the cells in fresh foods are still alive. This raw life-force goes into our bodies and gives us more vitality than processed, dead foods or juices.
I like to take the edge off the tartness by adding a mini spoonful or two of stevia extract.
I also love to take my green powder (dried wheat, alfalfa & barley grass juice) with grapefruit (or apple) juice. The most effective way I’ve found to alkalize my body fast is taking a teaspoon to a tablespoon of green powder daily. My kids even request that I put some (a pinch) in their juice. This year we are using doTERRA’s Terragreens.
It’s definitely worth the $10-15 investment to get an electric citrus juicer. I love mine! They are very efficient and save a ton of effort.
I always feel healthier after I drink this Grapefruit Juice: A Natural Energy Drink! I hope you’ll give it a try!
To your health and happiness in the new year!
