Just three simple ingredients can nourish and hydrate the cells in your body. This Orange Carrot Ginger Juice is sweet, tangy, refreshing and packed with nutrients.
A few weeks ago, I did a five-day juice cleanse at home. Yep, I’m a little crazy like that! I feel like my body needed a little boost after all that holiday eating. Too many sweet treats were consumed by me. Oh boy, was this cleanse hard! I did get hungry and a little cranky, but I stuck with it and relaxed as much as possible. Meditation helped out a lot, and making fresh juices like this Orange Carrot Ginger Juice made it so much easier.
I would make an array of different juices everyday, so I wouldn’t get bored and give up. I’m so glad I did this cleanse, because I felt fantastic afterwards. I had more energy, I felt lighter and my skin was glowing. I think I might do another cleanse in a few months.
You don’t have to do a juice cleanse, to get your body to a healthier state. It’s not for everybody. Another good way to start, is to add a fresh juice into your daily routine. I like to have a fresh juice in the morning, to really kick-start my day. My energy feels natural and I don’t get that afternoon crash. Adding one juice and a fresh salad to your routine, can really keep your body healthy.
Do you guys remember that orange tangy juice, by Sunny D? It was pretty popular when I was a kid and everyone had it in their fridge. Well, I saw it at the market the other day, and I honestly couldn’t believe it was still around and people consume it. It’s pure garbage! I think all kids should be introduced to fresh juice instead of sugar & chemical filled water early on. Once they’ve had that bad stuff, their pallets become accustomed to it. This Orange Carrot Ginger Juice blows that nasty stuff away! It’s definitely kid-friendly and my son loves it (I just use less ginger for him).
So, let’s check out that nutrition:
Oranges- Loaded with vitamin C and a great source of vitamin B1, folate, vitamin A, calcium, copper and potassium.
Carrots- Beta Carotene, vitamin C, biotin, vitamin K, potassium, manganese, vitamin E and vitamin B6.
Ginger- Vitamin B-6, vitamin B-5, potassium, manganese, copper, and magnesium. Also has anti-inflammatory properties.
You’ll get all that in just one tall glass of sunshine! Why not make one for you and your family today?
- 6 large carrots
- 3 medium oranges (peeled and deseeded)
- 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger
- Run all ingredients through juicer. Drink immediately
The nutrients in fresh juice will start to deplete rather fast. It's best to drink it immediately after juicing. If you would like to make extra for later, seal tightly in a jar and place in the fridge.
