It’s no secret; most store-bought drinks and juices are loaded with large amounts of sugars and preservatives. As a result, I try to keep them to a minimum.  So, whenever I can, I crave out sometime each week and prepare my home-made juices and drinks. At least I know that they are fresh and only contain wholesome ingredients that will  provide me with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients.

This week my juice of choice is a combination one. One that is full of huge amounts of beta-carotene and other nutrients. It only took me a few minutes to rinse a few carrots and beetroot, and a piece of ginger root. I made sure to chop these ingredients to accommodate my standing blender. These were added to blender with cold water and a generous squeeze of fresh lemon.

These ingredients were blended to a smooth and refreshing finish. I used my strainer to remove pulp which will be used into healthy muffins. My drink was a brilliant burgundy hue as my beetroot ruled.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
