Saw Orange

by on November 28, 2009

Because I didn’t get enough beta carotene yesterday I decided to have an orange elixir this morning.


Carrot Cake Juice (inspired by my recent visit to the Milwaukee Public Market)

  • 2 navel oranges
  • 4 carrots (peeled)
  • 1 small knob of ginger (peeled)
  • ground cinnamon, to taste

Put oranges, carrots and ginger through a juicer. Sprinkle with cinnamon, stir and enjoy!

This juice was sweet and delicious – I’m pretty certain it’s my new favorite. If you like juice, I insist that you try it!

With the juice I had a small bowl of oatmeal/oat bran (1/8 each) topped with some left over pumpkin bread.


And then for dinner I had leftover butternut squash salad. Have I mentioned how much I love roasted b-nut in salad?


To be honest, I didn’t really measure out the ingredients for this dish when I made it for Thanksgiving, however I’m going to make it again and measure everything so I can share the recipe!!!

Isaac and I went shopping today (not super early with all the crazies) and we got something new that I am super excited about. I’ll post a before and after picture tomorrow. :)

Hope everyone is enjoying their t-day leftovers as much as I am!


PS. The title of my post comes from the title of a “oldie but goodie” song that I enjoy. Any guesses?

As a beta carotene worshiper that juice sounds phenom to me!

The carrot cake juice looks so vibrant and tasty! I wish I had a juicing machine to make some fun concoctions.

my Dad drinks carrot juice everyday!!!

The carrot juice mix looks so pretty! I put butternut squash in all my salads this weekend and loveeeed it. Totally going to be doing it more often.

As for the shopping- the sales were sort of so so this year. I got a couple tops at banana and 2 running long sleeved tops at Nike. Nothing too exciting! We usually leave with massive amounts of bags.
