In the Reboot Kitchen: Dad’s Day OJ

We love to celebrate Father’s Day with a big family brunch.  My husband and my father both love orange juice and I’ve made it my mission to switch them over to fresh squeezed only and off the heated, processed, sugar laden bottled variety at most grocery stores.

Orange juice is a great base for making a variety of juices.  I added some green lettuce and anti-inflammatory compound rich pineapple, turmeric and ginger with some metabolism boosting lime for a tasty, tart juice that’s sure to make the special dad in your life feel great.  Whether it’s to help boost his golf game, his next 5k run, or just simply move with less aches and pains, serving up a nutrient dense juice for Father’s Day is a wonderful way to show you care.
