Well... if your life is anything like mine, my alarm promptly reminds me that I am both a parent, a dog owner and a corporate woman. That means that there is no sleeping in and there is no pressing snooze. Time to wake up!
One of my favorite ingredients in my morning juice is grapefruit. I thoroughly enjoy the bright smells and the not-too-sweet citrus flavor. I can remember being a child and picking fresh grapefruits from my Gramma's backyard. I would take the warm fruit and bring it right to my nose, taking in that aroma. I would peel and eat it like an orange... juice running down my face and hands.
This fruit is a perfect wake-me-up ingredient and it's natural health benefits give you a boost right away in the morning. Some include...
- High dose of vitamin C which helps to not only reduce inflammation but strengthen the immune system.
- Skin health through high levels of vitamin A.
- Weight loss through fat burning enzymes, apatite suppressants and metabolism boosters.
Tomorrow, why not try this simple morning juice recipe... and make sure to let me know how you feel.
