Grapefruit Juice: A Natural Energy Drink

During the winter, when most fruits are out of season, I crave something like grapefruit juice to balance out a heavier winter diet and decrease mucus from holiday food.Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 11.32.09 AM

 

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). Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 11.31.49 AM

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.

And if you really want your juice to pack a punch, add a couple drops of grapefruit essential oil. It really clears my throat and boosts my immune system!

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.Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 11.32.35 AM

 I always feel healthier after I drink this juice. I hope you’ll give it a try!

 To your health and happiness in the new year!

    Sounds wonderful! But, be cautious if you take certain prescription drugs that interact with grapefruit in particular. Read your drug info carefully, or ask your pharmacist. (My husband is in this category, and really misses being able to eat grapefruit.) My son loves juicing things too!
