When preparing the carrots for juicing, wash the carrots thoroughly in cold water using a stiff vegetable brush. Scrape lightly, but do not peel, because valuable vitamins and minerals lie close to the surface. The juice should be used immediately after it is made. If this is not possible, let the juice flow directly into glass jars, which you should then cover with screw-on lids. Keep juice tightly covered, and in the refrigerator to prevent loss of vitamin and mineral content through oxidation.
To give you an idea of calorie content if you were to take a mixture of fruit and carrot juice in a drink the calories per cup would be between 70 and 100 calories. One 8-oz. glass of carrot juice contains 20,000 mg. of vitamin A. Simply by replacing one meal a day with a delicious glass of juice and the mixture can be your own choice. You may love strawberries or bananas, and by mixing in some carrot juice you will find that you will begin to look forward each day to your daily juice.
