Boosting Immunity

Now more than ever, it’s a good idea to include a wide variety of fruits and vegetables into our diets. Carrots and other brightly-colored vegetables are great for boosting immunity and overall health. In addition to the Vitamin C content, fresh fruits and veggies like carrots, celery, and bell peppers provide carotenoids and other antioxidants that are so beneficial.

Benefits of Juicing?

Of course, it’s always best to consume fruits and vegetables in their whole form. That means eating them raw, roasted, steamed, or pureed. But, I also think you should consider juicing. Juicing has its own benefits and drawbacks, but it can be a great way to get more micronutrients into your body.

Even more, juicing can help you use up any produce that is starting to wilt or look past its prime. That is even more important these days as a lot of us are sheltering at home and not getting to the grocery store as often as we used to.

I am currently paying my pet sitter to go shopping for me about every 10 days. When she does go to the store for me, she is getting produce in bulk. While I can use up most of it, I’m finding that I have some left at the end of the cycle that is perfect for juicing. See all my clean eating tips when staying at home.

Recipe Steps

Step One

The first step of this carrot celery juice recipe is to gather up all of your ingredients. While you do need some carrots and celery, you can get creative with the other ingredients. I also had apples, oranges, lemon, and yellow bell peppers that needed to get used up.

I always try to include more veggies than fruit when I’m juicing, and don’t be afraid to juice green vegetables too, including zucchini, parsley, kale, spinach, and cucumber.

Step Two

Chop your produce into pieces that will fit into the feeding tube of your juice. The oranges and lemon do need to be peeled first. This is the juicer that I use. Read this article about how to pick a juicer. You can also make juice in a blender, but you’ll need to strain the juice through a nut milk bag.

Step Three

The last steps are to juice the ingredients and to serve the juice. You can store any leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours.

FAQs
