Why Juice Everyday
Whole fruit or juice
Did you know that 95% of the vitamins and enzymes our bodies need are found in the juice of raw fruits and vegetables? We would need to eat 2 lbs of carrots, 10-12 apples, or 8 lbs of spinach to get the same amount of nutrients you receive in one 16 oz juice. When you drink juice, highly concentrated vitamins, minerals and enzymes rapidly enter the bloodstream absorbing all of the nutritional benefits of the fruits and vegetables and giving your digestive organs a much-needed rest. And your body will thank you! But it might get through the first few days to feel the thanks.
This simple juice recipe will keep you hydrated and cool in the hot summer months, and the sweet taste balanced with the zip of ginger will have you asking for more.
It’s the perfect poolside beverage to quench your thirst and the long laundry list of ginger benefits makes it worth it to make this juice again and again. Ginger can aid in digestion and is a natural anti-inflammatory, and has an anti-tumor effect on cells.
4 large carrots, halved
2 cups pineapple, cut in long strips
½ inch ginger root (more or less for acquired taste)
Wash and prep your veggies and fruit. Feed the carrots, then the pineapple and finish with the ginger root. Serve immediately over ice.
