Weather, eh? We have it all here in Dingle. In the past week alone, I've looked out this window (the window of my home office) and been greeted by the sight of waves pounding the shoreline, hail hitting the patio, countless showers of rain and the occasional ferocious gust of wind unsettling all before it.
Often when I've ventured outside, I've been battered by that wind and soaked by the rain. I know it's January and that I can expect little else seeing as I have chosen to live at the edge of a cliff on the shore of the Atlantic but my body has begun to feel the toll of this and I'm on the brink of getting sick.
This is why I started my day with this today: a glass of goodness that is bursting with the vitamins we all need to power us through the winter months. It's easy to make. It contains ingredients most of us have on standby. And on top of being good for you, it makes you feel full for hours.
Here's what you need to make two glasses of carrot, ginger and orange booster juice.
4 carrots, peeled
2 teaspoons (10ml) chopped fresh ginger
It couldn't be simpler to make either. Unfortunately, you do need a juicer.
All you do is juice everything together and drink immediately. I added an extra grating of ginger on top, just for a bit more zing.
I think I'm feeling better already.
