Carrot Tan or ?????

Friday, May 10, 2013

emoticon Yesterday, I dug out my juicer for the first time in a LONG time. I couldn't find the fiber receptor or the plunger, but I managed to make a cup of fresh carrot juice with a tomato.
Last night at the pool, I looked down at my feet and I looked like I had that carrot tan that ChristinaSP talked about in her blog today.

TODAY, I made the carrot juice again, this time with an apple. And I'm sitting here actually watching my hands and palms turn deep orange. (For those of you who might be scared off by orange skin, it's not so noticeable that someone else would see it and make a comment. But parts of me that used to be pale now have some color.


For me, this creeping orange color is a whack upside the head with a two by four. I drank the juice 45 minutes ago. And already it has moved into all my cells doing its job of working to make every cell in my body get needed micronutrients, and turn me orange.

I WAS eating carrots before, but it appears I wasn't chewing enough.

But consider this. If these orange micronutrients can get into all my cells so quickly and make that kind of noticeable change, think about what the not-so-healthy things are doing each time I eat them, with changes that might not be as noticeable or colorful. But they are changes, all the same. Even if I am eating them in moderation, they are still flowing out to all my cells doing who knows what or where or when?

I'll leave it up to you to decide what those things might be that you really don't want moving into your cells. Personally, I have a long list.

    Wow, didn't know it happened that fast!? We have an orange friend who would juice up 5 pounds of carrots a day I think so I always felt like it had to be some excessive amount for weeks on end!?

Will try it in my VitaMix blender for breakfast!

    Maybe it's just gone straight to your eyes...especially if no one but you can detect the tinge of orange in your toes! Lol!

    Oh my gosh. Wouldn't be great if the bad stuff would make us turn purple as soon as we ate it. That'd stop me in my tracks or at least I wouldn't leave the house after eating junk food...ha ha

Thanks for the though provoking blog. emoticon

    That is fascinating! I did not know it would do that! I agree with JUSTYNA7. Actually, it might help deter us from eating some things if it showed up on our body like that!
