This Clean Eating Carrot Apple and Celery Juice is a favorite in my home, especially with my boys.
There are good things and bad things that can happen if you let your children help make the daily juice.
The good…all I have to do is cut and prep the veggies and then move on to another task – my boys actually “make” the juice.
The bad…they fight over who gets to operate the juicer – every time.
Tears and pouting ensue.
After about 10 minutes of negotiating amongst themselves, they eventually work it out and we all enjoy a fresh glass of juice.
And amazingly, they instantly become best friends again.
This is one of my more “kid-friendly” juices because it doesn’t really have the greens and other detoxifying things I usually add to mine like cilantro, dandelion leaves, kale stems, asparagus, etc.
We recently upgraded our juicer and the one we are currently using in our home is the Omega J8005 masticating juicer and we’ve been very pleased with it.

Tip #1: If you are new to juicing or want to save money juicing, you can get the big bags of organic juicing carrots from Whole Foods. They come in 5 pound bags ($4.89) and 15 pound bags ($16.99). Depending on how much and how frequent you will use them, you may do better price-wise getting a couple of the 5 pound bags.
