LaLanne Challenge: Juice #1 Carrot Prime

When people think of juicing they automatically think ” I’m not starving myself or vegetables, No thanks”  but what they don’t understand is juicing is very beneficial to your health and a great way to add an extra kick into your diet. When we eat food we absorb itcarrots and it benefits us well, but we also have to go through a process and then release it through our liver. With juicing it goes directly into our bloodstreams and we absorb the nutrients because juicing allow the fruit and vegetables to be broken down already so all your body has to do is digest it for you.

Okay, so now that I’ve ranted about how juicing is good for you let’s get to the punch!

Taste: ** FYI if you don’t like pulp a juicer is needed for this. I had to make my juices in a Nutri bullet until I order me a juicer. My juice had loads of pulp which I don’t mind because it will provide more fiber. I believe the celery is more potent in this juice even though you only have 1 stalk it still creates a strong taste.

The taste of the celery is worth it if you knew it was an anti-inflammatory agent and protects your digestive tract from inflammation.  No worries if you don’t want to juice celery then steam it, it is one vegetable that you can steam and it still contains most of its nutrients.

This juice is all veggies so it is great for weight loss, stomach ulcers, and cancer prevention.

The recipe for Carrot Prime is pictured below, I hope you give it a try! Let me know if you tried it and whether you used a blender (more fiber) or a juicer.

Total Juicing Challenge: (Over 125 Juices)

I love juicing so much I have decided to do a challenge. Many people are probably familiar with the Total Juicing book by Elaine LaLanne it has over 125 healthful ways to use fresh fruit and vegetables. In this book, they talk about the many benefits juicing has for your health. Since I have a Chronic Illness I am always looking for ways to keep me motivated to staying healthy during my journey.

I have decided to create a challenge, it’s not a 30-day challenge or 60-day challenge. It is a challenge to make all the juices provided in this book (Over 125). I will be doing the stencil.instagram-post (11)following:

  1. Posting (2) juices a week
  2. Taking pictures of how my juice turned out
  3. Giving you my honest opinion of the taste
  4. Providing information on its benefits.

I hope by doing this, you may at least try one that will help you or a family member and improve your/their quality of life. Be on the look out for (2) post each week!

See you Soon!
