To Whom It May Concern: I am an avid writer who is also a work-at-home mom. As the stay-at-home parent of three active boys, it is my goal to be able to spend quality time with my family while also making a living working from home. Currently, I tutor online and do office transcriptions, with occasional freelance jobs; however, my dream is to be able to write from home full-time. I would love to be able to do that with Demand Studios. The writing sample that I have attached is part of a series of articles that I wrote for a freelance project about small farming. As a person who was raised on a family farm and who worked on a farm during summers in college, I am also qualified to write about farms and homesteading, in addition to those topics that I selected. I look forward to hearing from you regarding my application. Please let me know if you have any questions and have a wonderful day! Sincerely, Rachael A Clements

Although it's typically not consumed as frequently as fruit juices, carrot juice provides a nutrient-packed alternative to less healthy drinks like soda. Learning the facts about carrot juice calories and nutrition can give you the incentive you need to start incorporating it into your diet on a regular basis.

Caloric Information

One 8-oz. cup of canned carrot juice provides 94 calories according to the USDA's National Nutrient Database. Many of these calories come from natural sugar already present in the carrots, so make sure canned carrot juice that you purchase doesn't contain added sugar.

Features

One glass of canned carrot juice contains 2.24 g of protein and only 0.35 g of fat. Of the 21.9 g of carbohydrates present in a single glass, just over 9 g come from sugar, while close to 2 g come from dietary fiber.

Considerations

Carrot juice provides 45133 IU of vitamin A and 689 g of potassium. Other nutrients in the juice include vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Drinking too much carrot juice could overload your body with vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, resulting in a yellow tint to your skin.
