I love juicing for several reasons.
First off, it gives your digestive system a rest. So much of our cellular energy is spent digesting food. When energy is not used for this, we have so much more energy for cell rejuvination and healing. Your skin will glow, your prana, or life force, will increase, and you will have more energy to really LIVE!
I love a good green juice. However, this recipe gives a spicy, sweet kick and is amazing for your skin. Some benefits of what is inside:
Carrots: Vitamin A. One cup of carrot juice contains 400% of your RDA! Good for your eyes and cell turnover.
Beets: High in calcium, magnesium, zinc, copper, and vitamins A,C, E and K. Sitmulates the liver and aids in detoxification. Increases the level of good HDL cholesterol.
Jalapeno: High in vitamin C. Capsaicin is a potent anti-inflammatory agent. High in folate and folic acid.
Lemon: Vitamin C. Digestion: used in ayurveda to “ignite digestive fire”. Natural antiseptic.
7-8 medium sized carrots
2 golden beets
1 jalapeno (seeds removed if you don’t want it too spicy)
1 lemon (peeled if not organic)
1. Cut carrots (if needed), beets, jalapeno and lemon into small enough pieces to fit through your juicer.
2. Juice and enjoy!

that’s a lot of Jalapeno….hot mamma! my favorite is carrot, apple, celery and beet….and then just a squeeze of lime to top it off.
What can I say— I like it spicy! 🙂 I love your recipe, too. Lime makes it tasty! I’ll have to try it. Thanks for sharing, joy!
