Healing Pink & Green Juice

I just hung up with a friend and told her that today is the first day of the rest of my life!! A tad dramatic but it seriously feels that way. Last week was rough and I finally feel like we are on the other side of it. Our whole house was sick with croup (or the grown-up version of croup) which made for long nights, a trip to the ER, and many tears. I forgot what normal life feels like. I'm so ready to kiss The Never-ending Winter of 2014 goodbye.

But, as always, food helps. Especially healing juice like this grapefruit, cucumber, carrot, and ginger mix. Dylan loves using our juicer because he gets to (safely!) push the fruit and vegetables through the loud blade and watch the colors come squirting out. This kid has a soft spot for operating small appliances. This juice is sweet enough for kids to enjoy while packing a nutritional punch. Of course the pretty color doesn't hurt.

Healing Pink & Green Juice

3 pink grapefruits
6 small to medium carrots
1/2 a cucumber
1 inch peeled fresh ginger

Simple, just juice everything according to your machine's guidelines and slurp your sniffles away.
