I love the flavour of carrot and apple together. It was always one of my favourite combinations in my juicing days, before I found out just how essential the fibre from our veggies and fruit is.
I know a lot of people detox on juices and think giving their kids a glass of freshly squeezed juice is a healthy option, but it’s not. Here’s a quick explanation of why.
When you take away the fibre from your food you increase the absorption of sugar into your blood stream. So having a juice is just like consuming a big glass of sugary water. Not good news for things like obesity, diabetes and overall health.
If you’re interested in how a high sugar, low fibre diet effects our health, and more importantly just how detrimental to our wellbeing sugar actually is watch “The bitter truth” by Dr Robert Lustig on you tube, I highly recommend it.
So give your kids a bowl of fruit instead of a juice, or keep the pulp and serve the juice with freshly made pulp burgers.
Anyway enough dietary preaching. This salad is quick, easy and grain free. Perfect for the 4pm munchies!
