Juicing…

Posted by foreualways on October 22, 2010

Hello –

Recently I had a Jack Lalanne Juicer given to me. Yeah it was missing a few items but luckily I am able to order the missing items from their website. I’ve also found some juicing sites ( Healing Daily, Harvest Essentials, and Juice For Health ) now if you have some recipes that you want to share and or websites for juicing and the such. Well by all means I’m eager to check them out!

Apparently Carrot Juice is a powerful juice, but I rather not like the taste. So what would you all suggest I try to add to it to make it taste better? I am thinking apples or strawberries as mentioned in the last link above.

As taken rom Wikipedia.com….

Nutrition

The carrot gets its characteristic and bright orange colour from β-carotene, which is metabolised into vitamin A in humans when bile salts are present in the intestines.[3] Massive overconsumption of carrots can cause carotenosis, a benign condition in which the skin turns orange. Carrots are also rich in dietary fibre, antioxidants, and minerals.Lack of Vitamin A can cause poor vision, including night vision, and vision can be restored by adding Vitamin A back into the diet. An urban legend says eating large amounts of carrots will allow one to see in the dark. The legend developed from stories of British gunners in World War II who were able to shoot down German planes in the darkness of night. The legend arose during the Battle of Britain when the RAF circulated a story about their pilots’ carrot consumption as an attempt to cover up the discovery and effective use of radar technologies in engaging enemy planes, as well as the use of red light (which does not destroy night vision) in aircraft instruments.[4][5] It reinforced existing German folklore and helped to encourage Britons—looking to improve their night vision during the blackouts—to grow and eat the vegetable.Ethnomedically, the roots are used to treat digestive problems, intestinal parasites, and tonsillitis or constipation.While I find this all that interesting I wonder if the so stated urban legend holds and truth, yet I’m not one to try it out!
What do you all feel about that?
 Well Good Night and Happy Juicing To Any Fellow Juicers…
