Juice: orange you glad?

Nothing picks you up quite like an orange!  It could be because the fruit is loaded with Vitamin C, which boosts immunity to fight off everything going around this time of year, or it could be because freshly squeezed orange juice is synonymous with breakfast.  Either way, it’s time to spice up this old tradition with the unexpected, like orange beets and cayenne pepper.  When combined with carrots and ginger, these punchy items make a harmonious little medley that tickles your palate and keeps cold season at bay.
