  Carrot Apple Orange  Juice

  Carrots contain the antioxidant beta carotene which turns into Vitamin A in our bodies. Vitamin A helps form and maintain healthy skin. Vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen in our skin. Together, this juice will have you glowing! Do not drink more than 1 serving a day. This drink also has a high sugar content so if you are diabetic, always consult your physician first.

"Lemonada Verde"

  The combination of fennel, celery and parsley can be helpful for water retention as they have a mild diuretic effect. Celery contains sodium and potassium and is good at replenishing lost minerals in the body after exercise or illness. Mint and fennel are good digestive aids. Parsley is a powerhouse vegetable, it’s is high in vitamin C and is considered an immune booster.

The tart green apple and freshly squeezed lemon juice is what makes this juice “lemonade,” as both offer a little sweetness and tartness to balance the flavor of the Juice.

Carrot Apple Orange "Glow Juice"

image322

  Ingredients

2 large organic carrots tops trimmed

1 organic Granny Smith apple cut into quarters

1 Navel orange quartered and peeled

Special equipment: Juicer


Instructions

Place the ingredients into the juicer according to the manufacturer's directions.

Drink or place in a tightly sealed glass container and refrigerate immediately. Keeps for about two days.

Rinse your fruits and veggies well, but don't worry about peeling skins as long as you are using organic. I do peel the skin and pits from citrus fruits because they contain really bitter oils.

I love using Granny Smith apples, but use what you like best. The Granny Smith has a nice tartness that is perfect in this.

Navel oranges are in season now and taste so sweet! I love them because they are so easy to peel and have no seeds.

How to Buy a Sweet Watermelon & Enjoy the Health Benefits

  

Why Eat Watermelon?

Despite the popular belief that watermelon is just water and sugar; watermelon is a nutrient dense food. It provides high levels of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and just a small number of calories. Along with cantaloupe and honeydew, watermelons are a member of the botanical family Cucurbitaceae. There are five common types of watermelon: seeded, seedless, mini (also known as personal), yellow, and orange.

So eat up and buy organic or grow your own, it’s worth it  😍
