Carrot, Orange and Ginger Juice RecipeDecember 6, 2015 4:02 pm
On this Rainy English Winter afternoon, I felt like I needed a bit of brightness in my day. This juice was the perfect way to bring in some sunshine and colour. My Carrot, Orange and Ginger juice is vibrant and packed with so many health promoting nutrients.
Carrots are renowned for their high Betacarotene content, which is a precursor of Vitamin A. We need this vitamin for a healthy immune system, as well as healthy skin and eyes. (Thats where the ‘carrots help you see in the dark’ idea comes from!) But as well as Betacarotene, Carrots also have high levels of antioxidant properties as well as being packed with vitamins C, K, and B8. Pantothenic Acid is also found in Carrots which is especially helpful when healing the endocrine and adrenal systems.
Oranges are abundant with Vitamin C and well known for this fact, a vitamin that is essential for a healthy immune system. This is a great juice to have if you are fighting off a cold or flu.
Ginger is currently one of my favourite things to use in the kitchen. I’m drinking lots of Ginger tea and using it where ever I can. It is a powerful Anti Inflammatory Spice that also has been shown to lower and regulate blood sugar levels. In Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, Ginger is known as ‘Universal Medicine’ because of its wide range of healing properties. Its warmth helps get things moving in the body, so is ideal for people feeling sluggish, lethargic, or with slow digestive systems.
…and the following juice recipe is packed with all of the above!
Carrot, Orange and Ginger Juice
- 4 Organic Carrots
- 1 Large Orange (peeled)
- Half a Cucumber
- Large Chunk of Fresh Ginger Root
- Half a Lemon
