Ginger, Carrot, Grapefruit and The Joys of Morning Sickness

Oh the joys of morning sickness! One ingredient that helped tame my morning/day/night sickness was ginger. I cooked and juiced with fresh ginger and ate ginger chews. For tips on handling morning sickness with your first baby or baby number two, check out my friend’s blog here. She is a natural mamma like me!

Now, I enjoy adding ginger to my juiced drinks for breakfast. Again, liquids in the morning are easier to digest. And juicing removes the hard to digest plant fibers, leaving the valuable nutrients for us to consume.

Ingredients:
1. Three organic carrots
2. Ginger – 1 inch piece
3. One Grapefruit

Directions:
Juice all ingredients in a juicer. Add more ginger if you like the taste. Stir and enjoy!
