'Tis the season, without a doubt, for a little balance in your diet. Between deadlines, finals, shopping, office parties, cocktail parties, ...your body deserves a little break from the stress, booze and rich food.
I was a little skeptical about juicing a raw sweet potato but worry not. Any weirdness (if you have ever eaten a raw potato, you know what I mean) is masked by the sweetness of the carrot and zing of the ginger. The potato yields quite a bit of juice and, of course, a ton of nutritional benefits. Your eyes, complexion, and brain will thank you.
sweet potato + carrot + ginger juice
1 sweet potato
4 medium carrots
1/2" knob of ginger
Peel the potato and carrots if not organic. Juice all of the ingredients together!
An apple or orange (peeled) would also be a great addition.
