Orange Dream Machine



Most of what I know about natural remedies I learned from my grandma.

She has this big book—basically the Encyclopedia Britannica of holistic healing—and she lugs it out at the first hint of an ailment. After listening to her read aloud from it enough times, I picked up the essentials: pressure points for headaches, cranberry juice for bladder infections, lemons for hair bleaching and, of course, carrots to help you see in the dark.

When I was making this juice, I couldn’t help but think of her. How if she was with me she would turn to the index of Encyclopedia Naturalica and look up the ingredients, then read me the benefits of each.

In some of my own  research, I found that carrot juice can do much more than just heighten sight.

It’s packed with skin nourishing vitamin A, rich in antioxidants which can help fight everything from cancer to acne, and contains a substance related to endorphins that just makes you happy.

Needless to say, this juice is a good one. I think next time I make it I’ll bring some over to g’ma. :)



  1. Okay….I’m pretty sure my vegetable-free self could handle this one…assuming the other ingredients overpower the carrot….
