Cold Carrot Juice.......

Rachel and I have been trying to live healthier lives.  I slashed my soda habit over a month ago and am down 15 pounds. I was surprised that simply cutting out pop could do that.   Now Rachel and one of her friends have started a new eating/diet regimen, which I'll happily go along with. I like to try new stuff and I'm far more apt to eat healthier if someone is planning it for me.  So this morning I was supposed to drink 8 ounces of freshly made carrot juice.  I was dreading it.  But I have to say this stuff really isn't half bad, no, actually it's pretty darn good. I stuck my drink in the freezer for about 30 minutes before drinking it just to make it extra cold. I think Rachel and her friend also added some celery and a touch of apple to the drink, but basically its all carrots.  I think I'm actually a carrot juice convert.......I snapped a photo of the stuff above.

I've never had carrot juice, but I do like carrots a lot.  But, I've never had a juicy carrot!  Is it more of a carrot puree.

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

I'm not sure puree describes it well...it really is like a juice....quite delicious!:)

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

Linda - Rachel says approximately 12 to 14 pounds of carrots to make about 64 oz. of carrot juice. - Kevin

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

Wow, Kevin!  15 is a lot of healthy loss, just by cutting out soda-bet you feel great.  carol h.

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

Oh, c'mon'..you're big and tough!!!!Wink

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

Ah, it's the "big" part this diet is supposed to get rid ofSmile

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

Carrot juice sure is nummy, especially with an apple & a little piece of fresh ginger root juiced with it.  Ginger is strong, so start with a 1/2" piece & then add more until you find the right proportion.

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

Kevin, I've lost about 35 pounds just by cutting out sodas and deserts. I know it would be hard for you to do (esp. with your job) but once you get use to not eating sweet, you'll find things like doughnuts, cakes, pies, and sodas too sweet.

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

any other info on "the diet plan"? 

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

If you start to turn orange, it's too much beta caratine (sp?) that's all! At Costco one day my little bunny loving daughter and I saw that they sell carrots in 25lb bags, we couldn't imagine what for - I guess it's for making juice.  I couldn't drink it though - carrots make my mouth itchy!  

Re: Cold Carrot Juice.......

Sounds good & looks good! I like carrots, anyhow..so I bet it isn't bad at all!! I wish you success in your quest for health!!!
