I've always loved grapefruit juice.
I think it's one of those things.....you love it, or you hate it.
We've been talking a lot about juice lately....juice gets a bad rap. So many of the juices you buy at the store are full of things that aren't......well......juice.
Take this for example. Here are the ingredients off a bottle of store bought grapefruit juice:
Filtered Water, Grapefruit Juice Concentrate, Grape Juice Concentrate, Apple Juice Concentrate, Grapefruit Pulp, Calcium Gluconate, Calcium Lactate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Red 40.
And here is grapefruit juice made at home....
Not Your Mama's Ruby Red
1 grapefruit, peeled
1 lemon, peeled
2 carrots (more if you want it a bit sweeter)
1/2" piece of ginger
bonus: add in some apple if you're not a lover of grapefruit's bitterness
double bonus: great with a piece of beet thrown in (I love beet in just about anything)
Juice CAN be a part of a healthy diet, as long as it's full of only good-for-you, and REAL ingredients.
What are you juicing this week?
