Sunshine State of Mind

By: Suzanne Boothby

This is not your average grapefruit juice, but it is a great alternative to “orange” juice in the morning. The base of this delicious drink is grapefruit, a citrus is high in vitamin C, which can help boost your immune system. Grapefruit also contains soluble fiber, which can help lower cholesterol. The beets, red apple and cucumber add a bit of sweetness to the juice, while the ginger gives it a nice kick of spice.
