GINGER ORANGE CARROT JUICE (AND I GOT INSTAGRAM)


The title is pretty self-explanatory: I finally got Instagram, and I'm sharing a recipe for ginger orange carrot juice. First thing's first: follow me on Instagram if you want to (...  you want to). Secondly: make this juice and feel the good ole fruit and veggie vibes! Carrot juice and beet juice are my faves right now. I love adding ginger and garlic for extra flavour and nutrition; and cucumbers, celery, apples, oranges, bell peppers, greens and pineapple for volume (and equally because they're obviously super healthy). The colour of carrot juice is legit inspiring (same goes for beet juice)! You can't NOT want to drink up a glass of this vibrant, glowing juice filled with life. Get it in ya.

Now, moving onto Instagram! I mean I suppose there's not too much to say about it; but I am really excited to have this new social media platform to share my life with you guys on. My Instagram feed will be a good picture into my daily diet and lifestyle, which I sometimes don't show on my blog (instead I generally only share my "wow!" recipes, not what makes up the bulk of my diet). If you guys want to only see the food I eat, that's totally fine; but if you're also interested in how I spend my days personally, I'd be happy to share that with you too! Just let me know. *smile*.

In other news: I just got my manuscript for my second book back from my publisher today, with their notes attached for what I should change or fix. *excited*! I can't wait to bring this new book to all of you. It's bursting with juicy goodness and the food porn you've hopefully come to expect from me. *wink*. (I don't know why there are so many asterisks in this post). This book has 100 recipes for mostly juices and smoothies, as well as about 15 for energy bars and snacks. There are chapters for ingredients, equipment, methods, tips and tricks... everything you need to begin or master a juicing- and blending-filled life! Cheers to living long and being sexy (because you will, and you are)!


GINGER ORANGE CARROT JUICE

5 carrots
1 tablespoon chunk of ginger
2 oranges 

Wash, peel and chop as needed, then juice it up and drink it down! Mmm. 
Note: this is a snack-sized juice. Double or triple this to get a full tummy.... although if you do, watch out for the ginger. Even with huge juices, I keep my ginger to about 1 tablespoon.

    I make this same juice for myself and the boyfriend on the regular. Of course, he adds about twice as much ginger because he's ridiculous. But hey, he's cute. :)

    way to go! ginger is one of the most powerful anti-cancer plant in the world but is best use is an ability to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds, and direct anti-inflammatory effects.

    raw food is the best!! raw food will protect us from all illness.

  12. What a gorgeous color it has! Carrot and orange juices are my absolute favorites. I love making them after working out and to accompany a slice of carrot cake.
    Can't wait for my organic carrots to grow and prepare this one with ginger.

  13. Looks so refreshing and healthy drink. I am really crazy about juices. I take a glass of juice everyday. This is really a perfect combination. Thank you so much for reminding us about this post – I’ll definitely try this. My husband will also love this juice.
