The new year means a new start! Why not embrace new beginnings with some revitalizing fresh beet juice??
I’ve been juicing for years now. Typically, I toss anything green from the fridge into the juicer and end up with something that looks a little swampy. Luckily, this interesting looking juice is loaded with oxygen, enzymes and millions of other micro nutrients our bodies need to perform at its best. My juicer has become a part of my daily routine.
Over the weekend, I ended up picking up a ton of beets! Intuitively, you can tell they are good for you. Generally speaking, the darker and more vibrantly colored a fruit or vegetable is, the more densely it is packed with valuable phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. Beets are certainly no exception!
Why beets are amazing for your health!
Beets are an amazingly dense source of betalains, specifically, betanin and vulgaxanthin. Both of these have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. Without going into too much more text heavy detail, here’s is the quick resume of a beet:
I’m sure you can put just plain on beets in the juicer and plan on living forever. But I simply incorporated with some of my other favorite ingredients to really load up the nutrition muscle power. And the flavor is also certainly worth bragging about.
Mind you, I’ve been juicing for about 6 years now, so I’ve grown accustomed to the raw taste. The green apple in here really sweetens it up, so I believe even a beginner would find it pleasing. Here is the full platter…that entire board of veggies would likely make 3 servings. The actual recipe is below.
