I haven't juiced in a long, long time. My pretty juicer was just sitting there on the shelf begging to be used! I picked up a bag for organic carrots for under $1.00 at Trader Joe's so I knew I had to make some carrot juice!
It was so refreshing, so healthy, so delicious! I had also bought a rather large bag of organic pears, so I used them in my juice too.
Carrot Juice: Improves the function of the liver and digestive tract, contains cancer-preventative vitamin E, eases aches and pains associated with aging, improve eye sight, reverses bone disorder, is packed with cholesterol-fighting potassium, reduces fat and bile in the liver, tones and clears the skin, slows cell degeneration with its antioxidant content, and is an excellent source of beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body.
Pear Juice: High in antioxidants, helps guard against high blood pressure and stroke, improves digestion and stimulates regularity, improves immune system function, and contributes to bone health due to its copper, boron, and vitamin C content.
11-12 organic full size carrots (no baby carrots!)
3-4 small organic pears
Cut up your produce if you need to, depending on your juicer. I washed my carrots but did not peel them. Most of the nutrition is right under what you peel off! So don't do that :) Start off with juicing the carrots, and end juicing the carrots as well. The pears are so soft that they need something more firm to push them through the juicer. This made 1 tall beautiful glass of juice!
