Beet, Carrot, Ginger Juice

Here is my go to red juice which packs lots of nutrient rich veggies and natural sweetness to help aid in reducing inflammation and adds a punch of essential minerals, iron and vitamin C. Liver flushing, oxygen boosting beets are combined with beta-carotene filled carrots along with fiber packed apple, vitamin C containing orange, and bromelain rich pineapple all for a little added sweetness and finished off with a zing of ginger and lemon.

I enjoy making juice once a week for myself and neighbors as a added/quick way to get vitamins and nutrients into mine and my toddlers body. I don’t use juices as cleansers or meal substitutes, but rather as a healthy snack or along with a meal.

Using a higher vegetable to fruit ratio helps keep the juice lower in sugar and adding higher fiber fruits will also balance out that natural occurring sugar as well.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Prepare the vegetables by washing and removing any produce stickers.
  • Chop the beets, apple, and orange into pieces that will fit in the feed chute of the juicer.
  • Cut lime in half and cut away the peel of 1/2 the lemon leaving the white pith and lemon flesh…it should be small enough to fit into the juicer without cutting.
