Ginger, carrot and apple wonder drink

Carrots, rich in antioxidants and beta-carotene, translate into a high-dose of vitamin A, which is essential for your immune system and eyesight. Also, their sweetness will satisfy your sugar-craving.

Apples are also an important source of antioxidants, especially vitamin C. The great thing about apples is that they satisfy your hunger without loading up on calories.

Dice up the carrots, the apple and the ginger and place them in the blender with half a cup of water. Mix them together and then serve it as dessert after lunch or as a nutritious afternoon snack.
