Need a Hump Day pick-me-up? I’ve got just the juice recipe for you! It is an energizing carrot, ginger, apple and orange juice that is great for getting you through the 2-3 p.m. slump. Drink this juice in place of your sugary afternoon snack and you will be surprised by the results! You will have more energy to finish out your day and enjoy your evening.
No juicer at work? No problem! If you have a juicer at home, you can make this juice in the morning and take it to work in a Blender Bottle. Keep your juice cold in an insulated lunch box or refrigerator until you are ready for your afternoon snack. Separation is natural so give your juice a little shake before drinking.
If you’re new to juicing, this is a great starter juice. Once you are a pro, start adding more vegetables to your juice recipes to cut your sugar intake. Choose organic fruits and vegetables when juicing because they do not contain the pesticides and toxins that may be found in conventionally grown fruits and vegetables.
Here is the nutritional breakdown of this delicious juice:
Carrots are a healing food and are rich in pro-vitamin A, vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6. They also contain biotin, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, phytonutrients, organic sodium and some trace minerals.
Apples contain vitamin C, B-complex vitamins (riboflavin, thiamin, and vitamin B-6), dietary fiber, and phytonutrients. Apples are a great source of antioxidants that can help reduce the risk of certain diseases.
Oranges are known for containing vitamin C but they also contain choline, zeaxanthin, and carotenoids.
Ginger is a great anti-inflammatory and also has immune boosting properties. It can even help aid in the relief of motion sickness. Before you use the ginger for this juice, peel it to remove the skin on the outside.
If you are curious about the type of juicer we use, or would like to find a nice introductory juicer, we have a Waring Pro JEX328. This juicer is inexpensive and really gets the job done! There are many different types of juicers at all price levels. Our Waring Pro juicer is a centrifugal juicer, but there are also masticating juicers, and twin-gear juicers. I recommend doing your research before you buy.
