Sometimes, when I am really on top of things in my life, I monitor where web traffic comes from. Most people stumble here through Foodgawker, Pinterest, Finding Vegan, or Google searches. If you do any Google searches for kale smoothies, roasted beets, or kale chips, apparently I'm your gal.
And, as I learned the other day, if you search for "images of nasty looking but good food," you will find your way here as well. Or more specifically, you will find your way to a very old post where I once made a rather gross-looking, but amazing split pea and yam soup (aka Sexy Ugly Stew) and told some jokes about how Mick Jagger is "sexy ugly." Oh how your internet past will haunt you.
Lucky for me I refuse to make sexy ugly food anymore. Just sexy food. Food that is beautiful and will make you feel beautiful from the inside out. Hello ginger-carrot-orange goodness...
Today is the two-year anniversary of this blog. Here we are... a year older, wiser, and (hopefully!) healthier. Thank you to each and every one of my readers for your continued support, comments, emails, tweets, Facebook posts, and for joining me in this journey to a healthier, happier life. My life wouldn't be the same without you.
And back to this gorgeous number. This juice is simple, delicious, and oddly filling. Plus, who doesn't love that vibrant orange color? The ginger adds a bit of spice which I found refreshing in combination with the sweetness from the carrots and orange. I always add lemon to my juices becuase lemons help to alkalize the body and restore proper pH balance (since our bodies tend to be too acidic in this modern world). Removing the peel will help keep the lemon from tasting too bitter in the juice. Enjoy!
