The Super C Fat Burner!


Along with a healthy lifestyle high in leafy greens, a variety of vegetables and fruits, nuts and seeds, and berries; lots of water and some exercise, this juice will do you well in keeping lean.  Your skin will be beautiful!  It's packed with vitamin C!

My hubby and I like to enjoy this after dinner.  Some may prefer it in the morning after breakfast.   It is great after a meal because it aids digestion.


1 Grapefruit   (pink or white. I prefer pink)
1 Orange
1 Lemon
2cm Ginger  (a chunk to give a nice kick!)
Add a small sprinkle of cayenne pepper (speeds up metabolism)
(Always use organic ingredients when available) 

You have two options:

1) Juice It:  Peel all and put it through the juicer as I do,  or even better...
2) Blend It:  Peel all and place in the blender.  This is great for fiber benefits.  The inner white pulp has phytonutrients for amazing healing benefits, you get more of this through blending  *You may want to add a little filtered water or ice blocks to thin this out.


Grapefruit:  Promotes weight loss.  One grapefruit has over 200mg of fresh Vitamin C, making it an ideal breakfast fruit.  It's available year round.  Helps dissolve in-organic calcium that has developed around joints, thanks to organic salicylic acid, making it great for joint pain or arthritis.  Awesome liver tonic.  Aids digestion.  Rich in lycopene (the red color/pigment) and limonoids, which help to prevent the occurrence of tumors and cancer. These two compounds are hard to find in other fruits and vegetables but appear in abundance in grapefruits.
