Papaya Ginger Blast


When summer arrived, I was excited. The kids were out of school, my work schedule became more flexible and I got to spend more time with my family. But, like all good things, that soon came to an end. The long summer days led to restlessness and boredom and everyone started dragging me in different directions. What about a little time to relax, a little me time?

On those especially tiring days, I try to set aside some time just for me, to kick back, relax, and do whatever I want. I may choose to read a book, get a massage, or bake a cake, but one thing stays the same: I always have a NutriBlast.

I recently came up with a new Blast concoction made up of fresh papaya and ginger. Papaya is a tropical fruit that’s low in calories and high in vitamins vitamins. Ginger adds a little zing of flavor and is a great anti-inflammatory. It’s great for nausea and headaches, too. Together this combination is refreshing and creates the perfect drink to have when you need to unwind and relax.
