I don’t have many words for you today, literally and figuratively. Just this pretty Glowing Golden Juice.
If you follow me over on the Instagram and watch my rambling stories, you’ll know that I came down with the worst cold slash sinusitis yesterday. Nothing like a glaring headache, a sore throat and a blocked brain when you’re off chocolate for the time being.
I used to be the kind of girl who’d refuse to take any kind of medication until I could barely stand straight.
But since I’m currently trying to achieve glowing goddess status, that’s not where my priorities are at anymore.
In an effort to do something nice for myself and support my body and immune system in beating this evil little bug, I researched some alternative cold remedies.
Drink garlic juice.
Uhm, no thank you. Not that weird yet.
Drink plenty of fluids.
Ginger and vitamin C might help.
Now we’re talking.
So I got out the juicer that I just said was supposed to stop gather dust and pulled out my phone to scan my note of favourite juice recipes. I may not be a glowing goddess (yet), but I’ve always been a hippie at heart – so I do have some favourite juice recipes, even though I haven’t made them in a… While.
This one seemed like a great fit for my purpose: Filled with fluids from celery, green power from cabbage, healing tunes from ginger and turmeric and some vitamin c zing from apples, and orange and a lemon.
It takes a lot of effort to heave yourself off the couch AND turn on the (very loud) juicer you ordered on Amazon* when you feel like your head is about to explode. But what can I say? It’s worth it.
This is definitely not a beginner’s juice, if you know what I mean. It’s a little sharp, a little acidic and a little astringent. But if that’s your jam you’re a) on the VIP list of my internet friends and b) in for a treat.
I definitely felt like I was doing something for my body and my wellness after drinking said juice. A less blocked brain and definitely more mental clarity.
If nothing else, it will leave you feeling like you got that much closer to being a glowing goddess – which is a win in my books either way.
