The difference between an herb and a spice is that basically an herb is the part of the plant that is above ground (like the leaves) and a spice is made from the more hearty parts of the plant (roots, bark, seeds). Spices also have a much more concentrated flavour, so you need a lot less of them to get that punch. I learnt this recipe from Natalia Rose, a famous holistic nutritionist from NYC and it has been a real hit in my morning repertoire!
Pumpkin Pie In a Glass
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
8 ounces of freshly squeezed carrot juice (I usually use 2 kg of organic carrots for this)
Put your spices in the bottom of a glass and mix them together. Juice your carrots directly into the glass, stirring the mixture as you go until the glass is full of orange goodness. Enjoy immediately.
This juice packs a ton of beta-carotene, which is converted into Vitamin A in your body and helps support your skin. Since your skin is your first line of defence against pathogens, adding this delicious juice to your diet will keep you healthy (and gorgeous) this winter!
Enjoy your day!
