Alright– I can officially label myself a mad scientist.
Last night I got my JUUUICE ON! Jump for joy and jazzy juices (I’m a dork).
My whole goal for this juicing experiment was to juice a beet. I have never actually bought a beet in my life– except pickled canned ones because my dad is obsessed– which have zero nutritional value (sorry dad).
Can you feel the beet? 😉
Beet juice is rich in iron, vitamin A, potassium, calcium, natural sugar, sodium, sulphur, chlorine, iodine, copper and vitamin B1, B2, C and bioflavonoids. WOWZA! Some holistic practitioners believe that beet juice combined with other juices like carrot and cucumber are excellent for cleansing the kidneys and gallbladder and for restoring health to these organs. Additionally, beet, being a fibrous root, is excellent for aiding in and eliminating the “bad stuff” from your body. The fiber adds bulk to the diet and therefore helps to improve peristalsis activity in the large intestine.
Every body could use a little cleanse sesh, so I put the beet to action. There are tons of great beet juicing recipes. I went to the g store and got all my juicing goods, cleaned them, sorted by recipe, and put them in gallon bags so there are ready and easy for juicing.
Last nights lucky winner.
