It's getting cooler here in the southern hemisphere, and the flu bugs are definitely out and about, so the more immune-boosting foods you can get the better. This juice is a bit easier on the ingredient list than my full blown Flu Shot, but nonetheless is still great for your immune system and pretty darn delicious to boot. Oranges, carrots and gubinge are all really high in vitamin C, with Gubinge being the real powerhouse here - it has 60 times the vitamin C of an orange!

1 orange3 carrots2cm ginger1c water2tsp gubinge powder OR camu camu powder (12% Vitamin C vs gubinge at 13%)
1. Cut up your veges and fruit into small pieces/sticks.2. Feed the orange, ginger and finally the carrots into your slow juicer, then add the water to wash the remaining juice out.3. Stir through the gubinge powder after juicing.4. Add some ice and drink straight away, or put half into a jar, seal the lid and save in the fridge til your other half gets home (or you get thirsty again).
If you're jarring half for later, try to use the smallest jar that fits so there's not much air between the juice and the lid. That way you'll limit the amount of oxidation that takes place.
Here's to drinking away that pending winter cold!

A little something special, for a little someone who was special to me. PS These saussie rolls are certified vegan and gluten free too, so everyone can enjoy. Don't forget the tom sauce.
Childhood love of Nutella? Baby, this tart is for you. Chocolate, hazelnuts, all bound together in a rich creamy filling - Nutella never tasted so good. Plus, we made a new VIDEO to show you how!
This tasty soup is my lighter twist on the classic leek and potato combination. All that creaminess you love, yet light enough to enjoy with at least a few slices of butter-drenched toast. Warming weekday perfection!
