Immunity-Boosting Golden Elixir
makes about 4 cups (but all depends on how much juice the vegetables hold)

Truthfully, I can’t verify if this juice, indeed, boots my immunity, but it makes me feel so good drinking it, I assume that it’s doing me some good. The ingredients below aren’t prescriptive, nor the amounts—it’s just what I happened to have on hand. If using turmeric, keep in mind it stains everything, so don’t wear anything you’ll be sad to turn yellow, and if you have marble counters, you may want to place your juicer on a tray to catch any drips. If using organic produce, don’t worry about peeling carrots; just make sure you wash the vegetables well.

5 medium carrots, scrubbed
2 medium tart apples (I used Pink Lady), halved
2 Persian cucumbers
1 lemon, halved lengthwise
1 rib celery
1 (3-inch/7.5 cm) knob ginger
3 pieces fresh turmeric

Juice the ingredients one by one. When done, the juice may separate; stir to reintegrate. Drink immediately or refrigerate for up to 3 days.
