citrus lover's best friend + a jumpstart juice recipe

thist tool is an oldie, but a goodie!  luckily, i acquired one from my boyfriend's kitchen supplies and have wondered how i had ever lived without one.  so simple (and so cheap -under $5!) this citrus peeler allows you to slice through the thick skin of lemons, oranges, grapefruits, you get the picture and then easily peel away the skin without having to embed peel residue below the surface of your nails.  it's the ideal companion for juicing.

 

here's a jumpstart juice recipe that i make every morning to energize my day:

1 lemon
1 orange
1 inch nub of ginger
10 drops of oregano extract
20 drops of cayenne pepper extract (the liquid makes the juice less 'gritty;' use less if you are prefer mild vs. spicy)

why add extracts?  for an immunity boost of course!
