This juice is perfect and healthy for any time of day. If you’ve never had freshly juiced vegetables, you’re missing out. I know having one more kitchen appliance can be mind-boggling if you don’t have lots of space. It’s always a challenge in my tiny kitchen to find a home for anything else.
But I just couldn’t imagine not being able to have a chilled glass of invigorating juice.
Yes, there are healthier juices on the market today. I was especially happy to find juice with no added sugar. But, still, it doesn’t compare to juice right out of the juicer.
Using ingredients rich in antioxidants including beta-carotene and vitamin A, the B vitamins, potassium, and folate which is so important for a healthy pregnancy (no, I’m not pregnant!) makes a nutritious and delicious drink. Since juice is absorbed quickly into your bloodstream, I prefer to use more veggies and less fruit. My body doesn’t love a big sugar rush, even if it’s all natural.
Later this week…
There’s so much hustle and bustle this month. A little preview of this week:
- Tomorrow is Slightly Indulgent Tuesday!
- 12 Days of Christmas Cookies starts here on Wednesday!
- Holiday Entrees and Sides for A Gluten-Free Holiday is Thursday.
- Friday I have a fabulous give-away to share with you from Katie Chalmers, author of Mommy, What is Celiac Disease?
How Was Your Turkey Day?
We shared our Thanksgiving meal with good friends – the day was perfect. And, I fell in love with Cranberry Sauce. I can’t wait to share my new recipe with you. What about you?
- 4 large carrots
- 1 medium apple, such as Gala or Jonagold
- 1 stalk of celery
- ½ of a large cucumber
- ½ of a large beet
- Wash all ingredients thoroughly and clean as needed. It’s not necessary to peel them. If necessary, cut them so that they’ll fit through the feed tube of your juicer.
- Turn juicer on and gently push ingredients through the feed tube. If any large pieces make it through without getting juiced, you can push them back through your juicer. Chill if desired before serving.
