Ginger Orange Carrot Juice

Sometimes, when I am really on top of things in my life, I monitor where web traffic comes from. Most people stumble here through Foodgawker, Pinterest, Finding Vegan, or Google searches. If you do any Google searches for kale smoothies, roasted beets, or kale chips, apparently I’m your gal.

And, as I learned the other day, if you search for “images of nasty looking but good food,” you will find your way here as well.  Or more specifically, you will find your way to a very old post where I once made a rather gross-looking, but amazing split pea and yam soup (aka Sexy Ugly Stew) and told some jokes about how Mick Jagger is “sexy ugly.” Oh how your internet past will haunt you.

Lucky for me I refuse to make sexy ugly food anymore. Just sexy food. Food that is beautiful and will make you feel beautiful from the inside out.  Hello ginger-carrot-orange goodness…

Today is the two-year anniversary of this blog. Here we are… a year older, wiser, and (hopefully!) healthier. Thank you to each and every one of my readers for your continued support, comments, emails, tweets, Facebook posts, and for joining me in this journey to a healthier, happier life.  My life wouldn’t be the same without you.
And back to this gorgeous number.  This juice is simple, delicious, and oddly filling.  Plus, who doesn’t love that vibrant orange color?  The ginger adds a bit of spice which I found refreshing in combination with the sweetness from the carrots and orange.  I always add lemon to my juices becuase lemons help to alkalize the body and restore proper pH balance (since our bodies tend to be too acidic in this modern world).  Removing the peel will help keep the lemon from tasting too bitter in the juice.  Enjoy!

    That’s one of my favourite juice combinations, I love adding ginger to all my juices :-) Happy 2nd birthday too! What an achievement.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for your kind words, from what I can see we have very similar tastes in food and I too look forward to having a little look around your blog.

    I love this combination. Any idea how much I need to drink to accidentally turn orange? I love juicing and am trying to avoid looking like an oompa loompah.

      If you have a high-speed blender like a Vitamix, I have heard that you can blend vegetables with a little water and then use a nut-milk bag or cheesecloth to strain out the pulp. I have never tried this though so you’ll have to let me know what you discover. :)

    I wanted to thank you for this recipe, I purchased a juicer today and this was the first recipe I tried. I have a 5 month old daughter, my first, and she is almost at the age where she will begin solids. Now, more than ever, I have started really thinking about my health and what I eat and I want to set a good example for her. I hate veggies but this juice actually tasted good! I don’t think, in my entire life, I have eaten enough carrots to equal one pound, and I drank one pound of them today! I am so happy that I found juicing and an excited to get my life on a healthy track for myself and my family and your blog is going to be my go to source for healthy food information and inspiration. Thank you again! Charlotte

    Studies have shown carrots reduce the risk of lung cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. Researchers have just discovered falcarinol and falcarindiol which they feel cause the anticancer properties. Buy Cymbalta

    Why people keep saying that we need to alkalize our bodies? That is one of the biggest lies. Our body has its own ability to regulate its PH. Be responsible telling people this kind of information.
