Happy Monday! I hope you all had a peaceful weekend. It was quiet over here at the house. I’ve been taking it easy since my left shoulder is injured and making sure to get plenty of rest.
My creativity is flowing in the kitchen and I’ve got lots of new recipes to share. Turmeric is steady on my radar to help with the inflammation in my shoulder. Jason brought home the other day and it was so strong! We buy fresh turmeric regularly but this time it was more aromatic than usual and full of moisture when peeled. It juiced beautifully ;)
We drink carrot juice weekly because it is nutrient dense and makes us feel good. I’ve been working on variations of carrot juices and this one is amazing. The ingredients are also in season right now making it even more nutritious and bursting with flavor. This juice is bright, refreshing, and loaded with antioxidants and minerals.
The addition of turmeric gives the juice a grounding energy which is important this time of year. Typically juices are highly vibrational, meaning they give us huge bursts of energy, that feeling of aliveness. Consuming too many foods like that can take our energy up and out which can cause us to have less of an inward focus. Using a powerful herb like turmeric in juice helps draw the energy inward.
Sunrise Breakfast Juice
- 1.25 lbs. carrots
- 2 grapefruits (I used pink)
- 1-3 inch knob of turmeric, (I used 3)
- Wash the carrots well.
- Peel the grapefruit and turmeric.
- Run produce through your juicer.
- Drink immediately or store in a glass jar in the fridge for 1 day.
For a sweeter juice add more carrots. The flavor will depend on the produce that you use. I’ve been enjoying this juice for breakfast and can’t wait to hear what you think!
