I absolutely love carrots and the health benefits they reap! They are super high in beta carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A in your liver, as well as zeaxanthin and lutein which are great for the health of your eyes. The antioxidant properties of carrots provide support for the immune system, skin, and protect against cancer causing free radicals.
Unfortunately for me, I have a slight tooth sensitivity and can't always indulge in this delicious crunchy snack. Then recently my friend suggested I juice the carrots to get the same benefits. Juicing! Duh! Genius!
I have been juicing carrots for a whole month now and I feel fantastic! My skin looks glossy and my eyes feel a lot less tired.
Here are the 3 juices I have made most often during this carrot juicing journey. I highly suggest you try them and let me know how you feel!
recipe # 1. the on hand.
This recipe is the most popular in juice bars. It's the most simple and contains items people tend to have on hand.
You will need:
a few stalks of celery
The apples add a sweeter flavor to the juice in case the carrots you got are a little bitter and are also high in fiber and vitamins C. According to medical news today, apples also help reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
The celery may be substituted for anything else you may have on hand, like cucumbers, sweet peppers, or more carrots and apples.
Recipe # 2. The super easy.
All you need for this one is 3-4 carrots and one half of a large lemon.
Lemons are great for weight-loss, contain a lot of vitamin C and taste absolutely delicious.
Recipe # 3. A little Beet of Russia.
This one is my absolute favorite! It is also the sweetest. It tastes so good my 5 year old steals it from me!
All you need for this one is:
1/4 of a beet
a slice of lemon
Beets are an amazing addition to the cold times of the year as they thicken your blood and help keep you a little warmer. They are also high in folate and B vitamins.
I have been having a lot of fun trying different additions with carrots as the main ingredient, and really seeing an improvement in my overall health.
Let's just hope I don't turn orange!
I hope you try these recipes and absolutely love them! I would love to hear which of the 3 you liked best.
See you soon!
