The Real “Orange Juice”

C A R R O T S

Carrots are well-known for their help with EYE health, also giving you those healthy appealing white eyes, did you also know that carrots are incredible for your SKIN and HAIR too? They have a lot of beta-carotene (aka vitamin A). Vitamin A is what we need for shiny & moisturized hair as well as a healthy scalp (essential to hair growth). Carrots also help repair skin damage and give you a beautiful healthy glow. For more nutritional information on carrots, see my carrot ginger soup.

Below are my two favorite “orange  juice” recipes:

Beets

Beets are incredible for beautifying and detoxifying your body with incredible anti-aging benefits.

Skin: Beets stimulate cell production/repair, protecting your skin from premature aging & wrinkles. The antioxidants in beets fight aging signs, keeping your skin firm and youthful. & because beets thin bile, they improve liver function and increase detoxification which helps with weight loss & gives you those appealing white eyes and glowing skin. (but be careful to only juice at least half a beet per day as it is very very strong and can be too hard on your body and make you feel sick)
