Cold & Virus Weather
We’ve had what feels like months of blustery, windy weather here in California. I’m talking about wind so strong that it rattles the window screens with gusts so hard that I literally hold onto my seat even when I’m inside. I guess this could be described as typical spring weather. It looks so pretty, but it’s awful!!!
It must have been the combination of the dry weather and something going around, but I got hit with a virus on Monday of this week that has flattened me. I guess I can’t really complain because I haven’t been sick since last summer (ugh, on vacation in Europe), but it still sucks.
The worst part of getting a cold is when your nose stuffs up so much that you can’t even sleep. I think I got up at least 15 times last night and went through about 100 tissues. Okay, I’m done whining.
Let’s talk about how to make this cold-fighting green juice!
Celery Cucumber Green Juice Recipe
With all that nose-blowing, I got a little dehydrated and a celery juice filled with all kinds of electrolytes and vitamins hit the spot! Celery is just perfect in a juice because it’s filled with natural sodium and powerful antioxidants.I used celery and cucumber as the base for this green juice recipe, but then added orange, lime, apple, and ginger to sweeten and spice it up.
I just love the foam of fresh celery and veggie green juice. Isn’t it so pretty?
This was celery green juice is perfection, with enough for today and tomorrow.
