Cleansing Beet-Carrot Juice
Juicing is becoming a well-known fad these days, and we are right on par. Grown from simple carrot juice, we have found this kindly flavored combination that is a perfect start to your journey towards juicing heaven. For this recipe, we combined beets and carrots which provide a delightfully sweet flavor with celery and ginger which add a nice tang and spice. All mixed together reminds me of some fresh curry dish packed into a glass (yum!). This juice has fresh ginger root which helps aid in digestion. The beet juice is a fantastic liver cleanser and detox. Carrots, as we all know, provides supple amounts of vitamin A and is fantastic for the skin. Overall this is a cleansing drink for inside the body and out, and is perfect for your afternoon pick-me-up when you need a boost or as an added bonus for your daily meal plan. Dr. Mercola swears, “that the benefits of juicing are the keys to giving you a radiant, energetic life, and truly optimal health.” And we couldn’t agree more.
