New Year Ginger Zinger 
Often we start the new year full of good intentions having just survived another festive season with too many late nights, rich, heavy food and other 'over-indulgences' that can quite literally leave our bodies feeling heavy, lethargic and exhausted.   To make matters worse, the rich, sugary treats that we have overindulged on suppress our immune systems making us far more likely to suffer from coughs, colds and other winter ailments.  These types of illnesses can rather bizarrely make us crave more sugary 'comfort foods' which can have exactly the same effect as the foods which suppressed our immunity in the first place!  It's a vicious cycle which needs a helping hand to break. This simple, immune boosting juice which is full of the antioxidants vitamin A, C, selenium and zinc is just the thing to give your weakened immune system a much helping hand for a new energy bursting 2013. 


125g carrots
250g cantaloupe melon
2.5 cm fresh root ginger
1 lime.
Juice all the ingredients and serve! It's as simple as that.  A fresh and juicy way to kick-start both the new year and your immune system.   Happy New Year!
