Juice of the Week: Spice Up Your Life with Red Pepper & Citrus

March 2014

Remember this one…?

When you’re feelin’ sad and low
We will take you where you gotta go
Smiling dancing everything is free
All you need is positivity

Colors of the world
Spice up your life
Every boy and every girl
Spice up your life
People of the world
Spice up your life, aahh

Red Pepper Juice

Even you music snobs are probably picturing the Union Jack molded onto chunky platform heels. Despite the pervasive nature of those lyrics [#sorryimnotsorry as they say], I recently lost myself to a bout of nostalgia in the form of 90s pop music [can you name a Jock Jams song off the top of your head?] and recalling those songs put a smile on my face! Oh how time has shed so much light on young Quelcy’s naiveté. Little did my friends and I know what those ladies meant by “slam your body down and wind it all around” while we choreographed our backyard dance routine.

Red Pepper Juice and Florals

Heed the words of those spicy ladies and spice up your life with this red pepper, citrus and ginger juice! You’ll thank me for this combination more than you’ll thank me for the lyrics now swimming in your head.
