On those days when you neither have the energy or motivation to make anything proper to eat, freshly pressed juice can go a long way in supplying much needed nutrients.
Rejuvenating Root Juice | Carrot, Beet, Blood Orange, Ginger, Turmeric Juice
1 medium beet, peeled and chopped
3 medium carrots, well scrubbed and chopped
1 medium blood orange (or any juice orange), rind, pith and seeds removed
½ a lemon, rind, pith and seeds removed
2 inch piece/10g turmeric root
1 inch piece/10g fresh ginger
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Pass all the ingredients up through the cayenne pepper through a juicer..
Stir in a pinch of cayenne pepper and a pinch of black pepper and serve immediately over ice.
Fresh juice is best enjoyed immediately but if you have a masticating juicer you can store the juice in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
If you can’t find fresh turmeric, stir in 1 tsp of organic turmeric powder instead.
