Welcome to the New Year!!
Hope everyone had an amazing night with tasty food, buubly booze and music all night long! I myself had a wonderful night filled with a lot of delicious food (did y’all see that cheese cake on Instagram), games, music and laughter and one huge jump into the new year 12 o’clock.
Well the past year has been pretty damn exciting and this blog has definitely been adding a lot of new experiences, emotions and dreams to my life. I am so proud of how we are growing, how we learn about food in all aspects, how we have been challenging ourselves and how we keep on developing and inspire each other. And yes I mean all of you, myself and the blog! Cause I hear you in the comments, I learn from you as well and I love to see your own creations on Instagram and in the links you share with the rest of us! So thank you and lets keep on the journey we are already on!
The day before New Years Eve I got hid with a pretty nasty cold, and as I could see with my family and friends I have not been the only one lying flat this December! The air is cold, we are stressed with exams and work and our bodies desperately need warmth, energy and nutrients to keep on going!
I am a firm believer that you can cure almost everything (or at least help curing) with colourful and nutrient packed food! So the first thing I did when I woke up with a soar throat and a runny nose was to go juicing. Vitamin C is known for boosting the immune system and you can actually cut of a few days of your sickness with a huge Vitamin C-kick! And ginger is known to be anti inflammatory, putting up a fight with the bacterias creating inflammation in the body! So I made a sunshine coloured juice filled with both of these to slow down the cold and restore my party mode before the big night!
The juice is a wonderful starter for any grey day! You feel reloaded and refreshed and I am sure it will help keep of any unwanted bacterias. Join me on the juice-wave and get a bright and sunshiny start of this new wonderful year!
Immune Boosting and Anti Inflammatory Juice
Makes one big glass
2 large (3 medium) carrots
1/4 organic lemon
1 orange, peeled
1 large (two small) apple
1 thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled
1 tsp oil (e.g. olive, almond, flax or fish)
A handful of crushed ice
Run all fruits and veggies through a juicer. Add crushed ice and oil and serve straight away.
You can double the portion and save the juice in an airtight bottle in the fridge, but for no longer than one day or you’ll loose too many of the wonderful vitamins. And if you feel like having this for breakfast you could blend in an avocado or banana together with the ice for more texture and have it as a smoothie!
