It is February and time for another Juice of the Month. This time a year I find it very difficult to leave the bed in the mornings. It is dark and cold outside and the bed is way too tempting. The juice Addictive Morning Boost is the right cure for that. The combination of apple, carrot, lemon and ginger makes the perfect drink for sleepy mornings. It is sweet, tangy, warming and full off vitamins. Ginger is known to be anti-inflammatory, good for your digestion and a great boost to your immunity system. And that´s just a few of all the great things about it. I could go on and on and on… Carrot and apple are staples in most kitchens. You eat them but perhaps you don´t stop to think of exactly how healthy they are. I recently read an article about the great health benefits of carrots. Two groups of nutrients work together in a synergistic way which makes the carrot protective against CVD (cardiac vascular disease) and prevent oxidative damage. Apple is a great source of pectin which helps lower your blood sugar level. What goes without saying is that both carrots and apple are packed with vitamins. I add lemon mainly for the taste but of course it is also nice with a little vitamin C boost. The good thing about this juice is that you possibly already have all the ingredients at home. I like it easy and making juice is much easier if you don´t have to buy a lot of ingredients. I always try to use organic fruit and vegetables. If you do, you don´t have to peel it. You then get more good stuff in your juice since the peel contains a lot of the nutrition. Addictive Morning Boost truly is addictive and once you have tried it you won´t be able to imagine your winter mornings without it.
