Orange Carotene

A week has passed since Halloween candy has entered the house and my willpower has failed once again. Now that We have donated the candy to several companies the house is once again free from my kryptonite.

Started the week with one of my favorites, carrot and bell pepper. The bell pepper gives the juice an extra edge, and I like to add a dash of cayenne to give it just the right kick.

This recipe makes enough for 2 16 oz drinks. As soon as the last carrot juiced, I had a line of kids holding up cups.  I love it.


Carrots are rich in carotenes, more than all other plant foods. Making them a great food for protection from cancers and cardiovascular disease.  Great for keeping eyes and lungs healthy.

Ingredients

8 carrots

2 apples

1 1/2 red bell pepper

1 romaine head

1/2 lemon

Directions

Wash all ingredients and run through the juicer. Enjoy immediately or flash freeze for 30 minutes and then place in the refrigerator. Enjoy within 24 hours.

Bell Peppers come in a variety of bright colors and contain high levels of carotenes and are a rich source of vitamin C.

Protein during a juice fast

Someone asked me about protein intake during a juice fast. Spirulina is a SUPERFOOD that packs more protein than red meat.

Spirulina is a plant that nourishes your body by providing most of the protein you need to live. Spirulina helps relieve allergy symptoms, reinforce your immune system, help control high blood pressure and cholesterol. It also helps prevent cancer.
