104 DAYSPA | JANUARY 2016 and produce distributors when they devise easy-on-the- tummy recipes such as this Carrot Apple Ginger Juice. Containing eight percent of our daily recommended protein in a 129-calorie glass, the colorful concoction offers a hint of sweetness from the apples and carrots and a slight "bite" courtesy of the ginger. It's loaded with nutritional benefi ts too—chief among them, as chef Dan McGee points out, high levels of vitamins A and C. "Carrots are excellent sources of beta- carotene, which supports healthy eyesight, skin and hair growth, and ginger is a natural anti-infl ammatory," says McGee, who favors organic produce for maximum effect. "These qualities also help reduce cholesterol and bolster the immune system during prime cold and fl u season," he adds. And, juice novices take note: this is an excellent, easy-to-master fi rst recipe.

Within the chain, each property's culinary team lends a unique and local spin to the menu items. Take the Swissôtel Chicago, for example, whose chefs showcase fresh, local ingredients from Midwest farms PHOTO COURTESY SWISSÔTEL Carrot Apple Ginger Juice Serves 1 4 organic carrots 2 organic apples (preferably Granny Smiths) 1 organic celery stalk ½ tsp. fresh ginger, peeled Wash carrots, apples and celery.
