Rainbow Carrot Immune Booster

 

Right now I’ve got a mega-cold, a cat with severe skin allergies, and a cat that’s just plain crazy waiting for me at home.  Life is a bit complicated.

 

Let’s uncomplicate things a bit, shall we?  I think it’s time for a fresh juice.  This one is an intense immune-booster.  This healing concoction involves rainbow carrots, garlic, and ginger for a powerful punch.  It’s a cure for the common cold, vampires, and crazy cats.  Okay, maybe just the cold.

 

For my juice base I used some fresh, local rainbow carrots.  Aren’t these gorgeous?  I love using rainbow carrots because they turn the juice a pretty orange-red-purple color, but you can use any carrots of your choosing.  Carrots contain vitamin C, vitamin B complex, iron, potassium, and sodium which is great for boosting immunity, alkalizing the blood, and improving liver function.

 

The next ingredient is raw garlic.  I’m a big garlic fan and love adding it to juices and recipes because it is a natural antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and powerful immune system booster.  Using garlic raw ensures that you are getting the most benefits.  If you’ve never juiced with garlic before, it can be a bit intense the first time.  I recommend starting with one clove of garlic and then working your way up to 2 – 3 cloves.

 

I added ginger to this juice because it is a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.  It is also great for aiding the digestive system and is especially helpful for nausea and cramping.

 

 

It is best to juice the garlic and ginger first.  Since they do not yield much juice, juicing the carrots afterward will make sure that you get the most juice from these items and it will also help to flush the garlic/ginger flavor  out of the juicer.  (This helps to prevent future juices from tasting like garlic.)

      To be honest, I am not super concerned about the natural sugars in carrots, but if you wanted to cut down on the sugar, you could always add in other vegetables like celery, cucumbers, or greens. :)
