Pep Me Up Carrot Juice


After I go for a run a lot of times, all I crave is juice. I am thirsty, in need of something tasty and energizing.  Which is exactly where this juice came in.  I had just finished a tough run out on the snowy streets (high knee running all the way) leaving my legs feeling tired, and mentally in need of a pick me up, and I was hard core wanting to make juice for refreshment.  I raided the fridge, and came up with carrots, bell peppers, and strawberries.  Hmm...I have never tried peppers in juice I thought to myself.  Carrots and strawberries yes, but the peppers might be weird.  Since I am all about trying the new and weird though, I gave it a go.  


I threw some turmeric and ginger in as well to aid in my muscle repair and this juice was seriously freaking amazing which is why I had to share it with you so you do not have to go through the thought process of wondering if it is a weird combination of ingredients, you simply need to try it. You need not be exhausted from a run, just in need of enjoying something delicious and vibrant.
