Carrot Ginger Juice Power Punch Mise en Place:
Benefits to Eating Carrots and Ginger
The health benefits of carrots are pretty well known, but sometimes we need to be reminded. They pack a huge Vitamin A punch which gives us better vision, especially night vision. Carrots have been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease when eaten regularly. Carotenoids found in carrots are excellent antioxidants and help to fight free-radicals. Not only are carrots high in Vitamin A but they also are a great source of Biotin, Vitamin K, Potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and Manganese.
Ginger is also one healthy root that is often used as a spice. You can use Ginger as a powder, fresh shavings, or a concentrated juice. Ginger helps the digestive system, increases energy, and can lower sugar cravings. Ginger can be spicy, so make sure to start with just a half a teaspoon to begin with to see how it affects you. Go up to one teaspoon though to really feel its affect.
I love my Blendtec! We actually have two… one in Florida, and one at our home in New York State. The Florida model is more basic, the model we use at home is top of the line. They both have their pros, and I absolutely recommend a Blendtec to anyone in the market for a new blender!
