Root Juice: Beet, Carrot, Grapefruit, Apple, Lemon

photo copyHappy Earth Day friends!

Here is the juice I made today. I decided I needed to juice a beet and some carrots to celebrate being connected to the ground I walk upon! I had never actually juiced a beat, but it was super easy. If you are new to it, just make sure you scrub down the outside first (I use a bamboo veggie scrubber brush from World Market). Cut off the stem and the base of the root and press it right in your juicer!

Here’s everything I had for this juice:

3 Carrots

1 Apple (any kind will do)

1 Medium Beet

1/2 Grapefruit

1 Small Lemon
