Carrot Tomato Juice

2 Fresh Carrots

1 Tomato

For all of you tomato juice lovers out there, here is a great juice combo to get you going. Wash the tomatoes thoroughly, remove the stems, then juice with the tomato skin still intact with the carrots. Do not juice the stems or leaves of the tomato plant, as they are extremely bitter and will ruin the flavor of your juice mixture.

Tomatoes are full of vitamin C, one medium size tomato can contain as much as 60% of the daily recommended value of vitamin C. Tomatoes are also rich in vitamin A, potassium, iron, magnesium, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, and many others. This juice combo is definitely a strong antioxidant and anti cancer recipe.

  1. Yes it does contain carbohydrates. For 100 grams 10.6g of carbs are present almost same as onions. If you compare it with that of rice, rice and wheat have 70-80 grams of carbohydrates. Hence if you want to reduce the amount of carbohydrates in your diet, then carrots are a better option.

  4. This juice is rich in Vitamin A. So if your diet is very high in Vitamin A, then excess intake of this juice is not recommended. Excess of vitamin A intake can cause the accumulation of the pigment under skin, giving an orangish tinge to skin. So do not consume excess of this juice. Drink a different type of juice daily.

  7. Carrot juice and Tomato juice make a great blend , as a health drink as well as a great drink for pleasure. i will just let you know below as to what I do normally using carrot and tomato.

    Extract juice from a mixture of three to four carrots, Spinach and two Tomatoes. Add juice of half a lemon to it. Add some rock salt to it and the combination will be very delicious and superb. In case of illness please do not use Rock salt.

    Simply mixing some juices of vegetables and fruits is alright, but will take you nowhere. One should keep in mind the delights of juices and their blends which energise the body and satisfy the palate.

    You have juices from pineapple, musombi, orange, carrot ,apple papaya etc, each one very delicious and fighting for a place. If you have a juicer, please do find some time during the course of the day spending time experimenting with blends to suit your relish, taste and satisfaction.

    There is an old saying on Pumpkin which runs as follows:-

    “For centuries the Balkan peasants of Russia have used the juice of pumpkin and its juice for maintaining the health of the prostate gland”

    Yes, the juice of pumpkin has medicinal value. Some of the health literatures in their article on pumpkin have made a mention about the juice of pumpkin and its seeds as a remedy for prostate gland problems.

    Pumpkin and its juice has other medicinal values too. Its juice is a remover of worms from the digestive tract. It can cure acidity. Its juice is diuretic. The kidneys are stimulated gently by the juice. It is also said that it can also gives relief in swelling, kidney-stone and diabetes.

    No other vegetable or fruit contains as much vitamin B as pumpkin has..

    There is hardly any fruit or vegetable which is as big as the pumpkin in size.. Pumpkin can be preserved for an year with the pedicle in tact without being removed. One should use only the ripe (matured) pumpkin and never the raw one The seeds should not be thrown away, but used while the juice is extracted

    Those who have prostate gland problem can give a try to this juice. It is harmless.
