Lemon Ginger Cucumber

"Ginger has some anti-inflammatory activity, and lemons are antioxidant-rich, while whole cucumbers are a nice source of both fiber and hydration," Feller explained.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 small cucumber with skin on

Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender, and blend on high for 60 seconds.

According to Feller, you get a nutrient-rich mix of vitamins A and C, plus fiber from the beet greens, root, and carrots.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small unpeeled carrot
