GOOD MORNING! Today I am getting the day started with some serious Beta-Carotene!
This morning’s Juice:
Some nutritional facts about our sweet and crunchy Carrot friends: Beta-Carotene is present in these roots, and provide a powerful anti-oxidant for the body. They have a high content of Vitamin-A which is awesome for eye health. It also is a great source of Vitamin-C which helps the body maintain healthy convective tissues, teeth and gums, protecting the body from diseases and harmful free radicals. It's many B-Complex groups of vitamins such as Folic Acid and B-6 are an important component in supporting the metabolism, and its high levels of minerals like copper, calcium and potassium helps cells and body fluids that help control the heart rate and blood pressure. Carrots are awesome for mummies-to-be (like myself!) so Im getting as much carrots into my diet as possible!
I love juicing my carrots for a sweet treat, and mix green apples for a bit of a citric kapow, grate into my salad or have chopped up and ready to go in the fridge for a crunchy, sweet and fresh treat. Enjoy!
