Carrot Juice and Bentonite Clay

After the vacation, I was feeling sluggish and off balance. I needed a boost. So I decided to go grocery shopping, and I got my usual fruits and veggies. Food City also had large bags of zucchini, peppers and bananas on clearance. I got a bag or two, of course. I made vegan banana and zucchini bread muffins and this for my morning breakfast:

Tasty Carrot Juice my way:

3 carrots

1 large cucumber

1 nectarine

2tbs raw ginger

juice of 1 lemon

1/2 cup water

My skin was a little dry on the return; probably do to stress, lack of sleep, and exposure to lots of car, truck, bus, and boat exhaust. LOL! Bentonite clay came to the rescue! After applying the clay and taking a warm shower with it on, my skin felt so soft all day long. I didn’t use any soaps to cleanse or lotions for moisture; the clay removed all impurities and left my face moisturized:)

Try adding dried apricots to a home-made trail mix for a boost of energy, and sweet flavor!

Interesting fact:
Cooking fresh apricots will increase the carotene and soluble fiber absorption into the body!
