Detox with Beets

I've been juicing in the morning to start my morning by hydrating, getting my body packed with nutrients, and rejuvenate after working out. Check out a short video from PCC about the benefits you can get from beets. Green Lemonade also has a great article about beets. Below I posted my favorite mix of fruit and veggies to juice each morning. 



1 apple, 2 carrots, 1 cucumber, 1 lemon, 1 beet and include the greens. Send these through the juicer and you'll have a great detox drink to start your day!

It's best to drink nutrient rich juice like this on an empty stomach and wait about an hour or 2 before eating. This way the nutrients will be digested easily and your stomach won't get upset.

Mmmmm...Drink up!

Shoot. I don't have a juicer. :( I would definitely try this but I don't think it would work in the blender.

I may have to come up with a smoothie recipe to make for my breakfasts!

You can juice some items in your blender if you strain them in a cheese cloth or nut bag. I used to make pulp free orange juice all the time before my wonderful mother in law got me a juicer for Christmas.
I'm gonna post a protein drink I really enjoy soon. That one is made in the blender. I use hemp protein, bananas, peanut butter, and non dairy milk.
P.S. gonna try making the carrot cake this weekend!

if you notice your pee turns pink after eating beets, that means you are deficient in HCl and PST enzymes. really common with autism. if that happens just take an epsom salt bath, that is supposed to fix the problem...

That is interesting and good to know. I actually take an HCl supplement because I've been told I don't produce enough. That does seem to help me digest my food. I haven't had pink pee yet, although I can't say the same for the other waste function.

Would you consider doing a post on juicing? How you do it, why you do it, the juicer (brand/type) you use, etc.?

Cailean, I'll have a juicing post ASAP!
