Juice of the Week: Celery-Spiked Carrot

May 2013

Living in a gray city with a seemingly endless winter has a very real effect on a denizen’s vitamin D count. I learned this for myself after a blood test revealed a vitamin D deficiency. My dream solution to this common issue would be to jetset to some sunny locale, where the sun would provide me with an abundance of the happiness-inducing nutrient. When pursestrings are tight, and schedules demand staying put, a vitamin and a glass of this celery-spiked carrot juice will do wonders! Bon voyage!

Carrots are an excellent source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6. They also contain calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus and are also loaded with phytonutrients, which help to prevent diseases. According to Stanford Medicine, one cup of carrot juice provides just about the same nutritional value as five cups of sliced carrots (source: Learn more here).
