Beet juice contains Betalain and can help fight inflammation and is great way to detox. I find that I crave beet juice. But I have to be careful, because too much beet juice makes my tummy hurt. I recently read that it’s better to start out with a small amount a day, like 1 or 2 oz. I found that cutting 1/4 a piece of beet root is enough to give my drink the beet flavor I crave, but not too much that it hurts my stomach. It also makes your drink pretty! Ha! Which I doubt anyone trying to be healthy cares to much about that, but even so! It’s an added bonus. There are SO many good things in this drink. It’s pretty simple to make and lovely to drink.
Juicing with green apples has made my life taste better, I am serious. I love juicing, but most of the time I lean toward tart and sweet. Green apples are just that. They make any juice taste better. So my secret to sticking to juicing every day is green apples. Plus, they are full of Vitamin C and antioxidants, which we can all benefit from! Especially when they are fresh! I know it’s a big deal to buy supplements, especially vitamin c, but why not make yourself a fresh cup of it? It’s just more fun that way.
- 2 Green Apples
- 1/4 piece of beet root
- 1 lemon (peeled)
- 1 small piece of ginger (about the size of your thumb or smaller)
- 2 carrots
- Juice everything into a clear glass except for the carrots. Juice the carrots last into a small cup, then pour the carrot juice on top. Garnish with lemon and drink in the afternoon as a pick me up or as a energizing snack.
