Juicing has many health benefits, it should be something included in our weekly, or even daily diets. There are so many nutrients in organic fruits and veggies that our bodies need. However, it can be challenging to get them all in in meals without consuming a crazy amount of calories. Juicing can also be really expensive, with shops charging $5-$12 for a juice, and not really getting as much bang for your buck as you could if you do it at home. This simple juice recipe is healthy, simple and easy to incorporate into your diet. (P.S. Make sure your produce is organic, or you’ll be having pesticide juice along with your veggies… no thanks!). For the juice you will need:
6 whole organic carrots, stems cut off and cleaned.
Carrots are the richest plant source of vitamin A, which helps improve eyesight, your immune system, reproductive system and helps the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs work properly.
3 organic apples, rinsed and cut to fit
Apples are high in polyphenols with act as antioxidants in the body. Apples are also very high in Vitamin C which is essenetial in the development and repair of all body tissues. It’s aids in the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
I 3 used medium sized Fuji apples, but this is your preference. Different apples have different sugar and nutrient content. Granny smith is one of the most nutritious common apples, but honeycrisp’s are also high in phytonutrients and add a sweeter flavor. It’s your call but you can’t go wrong, all contain good for you Vitamin C.
- Ginger (2 inches)
Ginger is widely used for aiding in digestion, reducing nausea, and settling your stomach. Ginger can also be used to reduce inflammation, and provide heartburn relief.
Ginger will add a spicy element to your drink, and a little bit goes a long way, so be mindful of the amount added when juicing.
