I got my juicer out of hiding

Want a drink so potent it'll make your eyes water?
The last few days I've been feeling a little lethargic and gacky in the throat. Uhh, nuh uh. No way am I getting sick - haven't been sick for years and don't intend on starting now.

Potent Juice of Doom

Juice together, in order:

2 cm chunk of ginger
1 large garlic clove
1/2 a small onion
1 red sweet chilli or a chunk of capsicum (red or yellow)
2 med-large carrots
1 lemon or 1 small orange

Drink up! It's pretty spicy from the ginger, I liked the version with the orange better, it took the edge off a bit, but both were delicious. I'm going to keep this up for a couple more days and I'm pretty sure I'll never ever get sick again.

Don't want Allium spp. breath?

Chew a fresh sprig of parsley! I got no complaints from my girlfriend ;)

That photo is great! I love the kitty in the slightly blurry background!

And I do hope the juice has cured your ills, it's no fun being sick, especially during summer.

Thanks! It's rare that I get her to look up at the camera when I take pictures like that. She's camera shy :)

I hope so too. The smell of the onion in it alone should keep the germs at bay!
