In addition to wheatgrass juice, I like to start off my day with a fresh homemade juice. I've taken a photo of all the ingredients I regularly use. Can you guess which ingredient I use that I have yet to see in a juice bar?
The answer is peppermint. Peppermint is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint. It can have health benefits for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), nausea, skin conditions, headaches, cold, and flu. Peppermint is also considered anti- inflammatory. It's a great addition to a fresh juice, especially if you are fighting inflammation. I have included the entire ingredient list below.
Carroll's Fresh Juice Recipe
Juice all the above ingredients.
Store juice in mason jars in the fridge.
Drink each morning.
I try to make fresh juice twice a week. The citric acid in the lemon and lime keep the juice from oxidizing. So it’s good for about 3 days in the fridge.
