As a kid, my father was very into juicing. We used to joke that if it didn’t move, he would juice it. (We made sure to keep on moving.)
He used to have a strange mark on his face that was noticeable and checked out fine with the doctor. But after his new juicing fad, it mysteriously disappeared. The doctor was surprised. “What is it that you have been doing differently, Mr. Goren?” he asked.
When my father told him that he had a regimen of two cups of carrot juice a day, he shocked that MD. And before you ask, we didn’t notice if my father had an orange tinge, he was always too tanned from his daily walk and tennis game!
Carrots are of course known to be great for your eyes too! They are high in vitamins A, K, C and B6 to name a few.
If you ever feel the urge to juice them, try the ratio of 4 carrots (I like to use the organic ones because then I can just rinse them) to 1 small beet and 2 stalks of celery.
Since carrots and tzimmes are such a part of the Rosh Hashana menu, I thought you would enjoy this easy recipe to complement your meal. A Happy New Year to all!
