Everyone’s morning routine is different. Some need a strong cup of espresso to get the day started, some just drink a glass of water, and some go the extra mile and choose a freshly squeezed juice to start their day with. If you’re the third kind, and are looking to diversify your morning juice routine, you might want to consider trying a healthy, refreshing carrot juice.
For quite a few reasons, actually. Carrots are a great source of vitamin A, vitamin K, Vitamin C, calcium, and other valuable nutrients. They assist in strengthening the bones, improving eye and heart health, and balancing blood pressure levels.
You probably shouldn’t have carrot juice for breakfast every day, since consuming too much carrot can lead to an excess of beta-carotene, which can turn your skin yellow. But stick to two to three cups of carrot juice per week and you should be fine.
Here’s what you need to make carrot juice:
- A food blender
- About 1/2 pound carrots (3-4 carrots)
- 1 cup water
- 1 lemon
- Wash and peel carrots (and lemon, if you chose to add one)
- Slice each into cubes (for optimal blending)
- Insert all ingredients into the blender
- Blend well!
- Drink your refreshing carrot juice
