This allergy season is terrible. My nose has been running non-stop for 3 months! The more rain the better, for allergies that is!

A great way to start your morning is with a juice blend! It not only helps you wake up but it also helps you get some added nutrients on an empty stomach. This is also a great way to get something nutritious in your stomach within the first 30 minutes of waking up like you should already be doing.

This juice is spicy! It has ginger in it which will help clear your sinuses but is also great as an anti-inflammatory, a anti-parasitic and helps sooth your tummy! It also contains orange juice which is a GREAT source of vitamin C for your immune system! I found this recipe from a great article here, and she has great ways of cutting down the spiciness, but believe me, if you want your sinuses clear, try to keep it spicy! If the ginger is too spicy she says to add cucumber or celery to the drink, and if you added too much cayenne for your taste, you can some more apple to cut it down!

You will need the following ingredients and it makes about 12 ounces, 2 servings.

1 large orange, peeled
1/2 lemon, de-seeded and peeled
1 medium apple, chopped (My favorite is Gala)
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, skin removed
cayenne spice

A great way to keep your juicing exceptionally healthy is to make sure that the ingredients you use are organic. That way, your body is not absorbing the chemicals they may spray on it for pests or growth.

How to blend it all together:

The best way to make any juice is to buy a juicer, it doesn’t need to be expensive or fancy, it just needs to get the job done the most efficiently.
1. Wash all your ingredients. I use an all natural wash made with organic citrus you can read about here and it costs about $5 at the local grocery store and lasts a while.

2. Prepare your fruitĀ  – Peel your orange and 1/2 lemon – and remove the lemon seeds (they have a bitter taste)

Cut your apple into sizes that will fit in your juicer, mine fits about 1/4 of the apple at a time and I juice all of it, even the core.

Cut your ginger into smaller pieces.

3. Start adding all of the ingredients into your juicer. There are alternative methods to getting a thinner juice, but I prefer to get all of the nutrients the fruits have to offer.

4. As the juice comes out of the juicer, if you have a glass short enough you can put the glass under the spout, if not, then you put it into another container then into glasses.

5. add cayenne to your juice, only a little bit at a timeĀ  since each person has their own tolerance level.

6. Last but definitely not least, stir together and enjoy!

ngredient. Ginger may even interact with certain medications. Just because it’s natural, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be careful!
