Gluten Free Carrot Beet Apple Juice Recipe
I once belonged to a gym that was right next door to an ice cream parlor. After a month of working out five nights a week for over an hour each night I had gained almost 10 pounds. Of course the conclusion I came to was that working out made me fat. Some how I had neglected to put it together that every time I finished a work out I had treated myself with a small hot fudge sundae and that maybe, just maybe the sundae and not the working out was responsible for the weight gain.
I have since found a better way to treat myself after a workout – juice! Juice made with whole, organic carrots, beets and apples. It nourishes my body after the hard work and treats my senses with that bit of sweet I want after sweating and pumping iron. It also helps to detox the body. Beets help the clean out the liver which is our natural filter system for the body. And I venture to say that drinking freshly juiced vegetables and fruit is a tad healthier than throwing down a hot fudge sundae (complete with whipped cream, peanuts and a cherry!).
In honor of Nicola of G-Free Mom’s month of detox I am submitting this, my new after work out reward. You need a juicer but the rewards of a small investment are so worth it. Seriously, how good is it to be able to drink down a days worth of detoxing veggies in a single glass of delicious juice?
Head over to Nicola’s blog and see who else has contributed to this month of detox!
- 3 small organic carrots – washed but not peeled
- 1 small beet with greens – washed
- 1 small apple – washed but not peeled
- A few sprigs of parsley
- 1 wedge of fresh lemon
Cut the vegetables and apple into chunks and feed through a juicer along with the parsley and lemon.
