Get a potassium and cartenoid boost with this simple recipe, this juice is soooo good you can taste the nutrition! I think this one will be on the menu several times a week now.
You can leave out the orange pepper, or use a yellow or red one, I just happened to have a bit leftover, and it gave it an extra little spice.
- 5 carrots
- 3 granny smith (or fuji) apples
- 4 stalks celery
- 1/2 lg. orange bell pepper
- 1″ pc ea ginger
- 1″ pc turmeric
Carrots are a wonderful source of potassium and cartenoids. They are the richest plant source of vitamin A.
Apples contain enzymes that help with digestion, and antioxidants that help to raise “good” cholesterol
Celery contains among other things, calcium, folate (from which our bodies make folic acid), vitamin K, vitamin C, flavonoids, and polysaccharides. These and the plethora of other micronutrients in celery help to fight inflammation.
Sweet Pepper contains cartenoids, vitamin C, several phytochemicals and carotenoids, especially beta-carotene, all with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Ginger root reduces nausea, inflammation, relieves heartburn relief, helps digestion and may help to boost the body’s metabolism.
Turmeric root is great for the brain, eyes, supports the liver and makes skin healthier, and increases the body’s ability to produce it’s own powerful anti-oxidants.
So if you’re not juicing by now and just thinking how good this would be, read this post so you can decide the best type of juicer for you.
Enjoy, and happy juicing!
