It has been over cast for a few days at the San Diego coast and this type of weather really drags me down. By 3 pm, I’m ready for a nap. To avoid snoozing during the day, I usually run to Starbucks and order a latte, but today I thought I’d make an Energy Juice!
This sweet pick-me-up juice has the following ingredients:
2 oranges (recipe calls for 1 orange, but I added 2 small oranges)
1 knob of ginger
I also add about a cup or so of water to dilute the concentrated sweetness of the blended juices.
The recipe above is from a book called Detox Solutions by Helen Foster. The book is divided into fourteen plans to help you get back on track if you’ve over indulged in caffeine, sugar, alcohol .. whatever, there is a plan for you. The book was published in 2013, so I’ve at least had this book 10+ years. When I’ve over indulged during a three day weekend, I usually do the Lighten Up Plan the following weekend, so I can get back to eating a clean diet. All the plans are easy and the food is simple to prepare.
I’m off to drink my energy drink! Here’s hoping the sun is shinning where ever you are.
