1 grapefruit

1 lime

2 oranges

Head of romaine lettuce

1/4 cup of loosely packed, fresh mint

Step Two: Prepare all of your citrus.  I wasn’t able to get organic citrus at the market, so I cut off the skins. The juice all your citrus; I juiced the grapefruit, oranges and then lime.

Why juice grapefruit? 

  • Strengthen immune system due to massive amounts of Vitamin C
  • The pink part of grapefruit is lycopene, which functions as a anti-tumor aid
  • Speeds up metabolism, appetite suppressant and aids in weight loss
  • Contains potassium and calcium
  • Has a high water content, which helps with your skin complexion!
