Ode to your health with 'Fresh Juices'

Nothing beats a freshly squeezed/made juice. My mom is a Juic-o-holic! Perhaps, I have got it from her. She has made us drink all sort of fruits and veggie juices from Lauki to Tomato to Plain Orange Juice. All fresh! They are packed with nutrients and are a big health booster. They can do a good deal of great things for our body such as improve the condition of your skin, help you to detox, increase your immunity,boost your energy levels and vitality. It is always best to drink freshly squeezed juices immediately as a lot of its nutrients are lost if kept in contact with air for long.

Pure fruit and vegetable juices invigorate your body, mind and soul. So what's keeping you back? Let's get juicing!

Here, I am sharing two of them today. First one being Carrot and Celery Surprise!

Carrots is bursting with protective antioxidant pigment-beta carotene and alpa carotene. It helps to prevent cancers of the mouth, stomach, lungs and rectum. It increases iron absorption.
Celery is one vegetable I tasted first time after coming here. It has very low calories but has a wide range of minerals and vitamins. It helps to treat 'High Blood Pressure' and also 'Rheumatoid Arthritis'
This vibrant veggie juice is naturally sweet because of the addition of grapes. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, it will act as a pick me up when you are feeling low.


Makes 1 glass:

Ingredients:

4 carrots, trimmed.
1 celery stick, plus an extra stick to decorate.
175 gm white grapes.

Process:

Roughly chop the carrots, and then press through a juicer with the celery and grapes. Pour the juice into a glass, decorate with a celery stick stirrer and serve immediately.
The second one on the list here is Pink Delight - I have named it such for its colour. This citrus juice is perfect for an ultra refreshing start of the day. Made with pink grapefruit, orange and lemon juice it is tangy and very flavourful. 

Citrus fruits are well known for being high in Vitamin C,which is essential for good health.
Pink grapefruit has a high content of the carotene pigment lycopene also found in tomatoes. Oranges are a good source of the B vitamin folate which helps to reduce the chance of heart disease. 
Ingredients:

2 Oranges
1 Pink Grapefruit.
1 tbsp freshly squeezed juice.
Pinch of black salt.
Freshly ground pepper to taste.

Process:

Using a citrus press juice the oranges and the grapefruit. Add the lemon juice salt and pepper, stir and serve.

Stay tuned for more! Enjoy!
