Here’s a nutrient-dense and flavorful juice. Try this Carrot Tomato Celery juice. Celery is a great detoxer; carrots are full of sugar and tomato adds lots of nutrients with few calories.
Tomato juice is low in calories when compared to other juices. 1 cup of tomato juice holds 41 calories. Same sized serving or orange or apple juice has about 120 calories. Big difference!
Also, Tomato juice is rich in many antioxidants, vitamin C, and beta-carotene. In fact, its a better source of nutrients than both orange and apple juice. 8 ounces of tomato juice gives you 284% of the RDA for vitamin C. And, this mighty juice also provides 22 percent of the RDA for vitamin A.
