Orange Antioxidant Refresher

Ingredients

  • 4 oz pineapple
  • 1 mini orange cauliflower - leaves removed
  • 1 orange - peeled
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp pomegranate powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Cauliflower is a great source of fiber and vitamin C, and even though it’s considered a starchy vegetable, is relatively low carb. This particularly adorable variety comes with edible leaves attached, but we recommend you remove them because they can be quite bitter. Oranges are full of vitamin C too, but many people don’t know that pineapple actually has more vitamin C per serving. Turmeric and ginger are packed with anti-inflammatory power, and are especially good at helping to ease chronic joint pain. Pomegranates have almost three times more antioxidant oomph than green tea or red wine, and are another high-fiber food.
