We walked through the market saturday morning and saw some delicious juices.  I bought some carrots and beets, went home and quickly mixed up 2 fine looking glasses of pure freshness in my juicer.  Added some fresh ginger for a bit of zing....and enjoyed a fine beverage with a good friend....

In chinese medicine:
beets: nourishes blood, calms the mind, and cleanse the liver
carrots: rich in beta-carotene, detoxifies, lubricates the intestines
ginger: warms the body, supports digestion, wards off illnesses
All good things for a pregnant mama....
