Kickstart with Orange - Carrot & Maca Juice

Juicing is what really go me into vegetarian cooking and raw food and I still make juice like a madman every day. This juice has a dose of Maca root in it. The Maca root grows in the Andes of Peru and Bolivia and is not commonly called "Nature's Viagra" (mostly because of the high dose of the amino-acid L-Arginine) but it also enhances the hormone balance and energy. Maca is rich with B-, C- and E-Vitamin, Iron and Calcium (skip the dairy folks!).

This juice is quick but you need a juicer to make it as blending carrots will create a Carrot smoothie, which I don't recommend.


  1. 4-5 Medium sized Organic Carrots

  2. 2 Oranges

  3. 1 tablespoon of Maca Powder

Mix everything and drink SLOWLY on an EMPTY stomach. As I travel a lot in my job which is often associated with business dinners, wine I always come home and feel 200kgs heavier than when I left, so I go on a fast / detox for a week after I come home. Juicing is perfect and I combine it with nuts and seeds to provide me with the fiber I need.
