Simple Detox: Beet Juice Recipe
Posted By Crystal Collins On July 3, 2013 @ 8:00 am In Healthy Eating,Juicing | 4 Comments
Nothing starts me on a detox faster than a good beet juice! Even if I’ve been juicing for a few days, a beet juice always kicks my detox into high gear. If you want to do a simple detox and cleansing, a good beet juice is the way to go. Just be prepared to stay close to the restroom – ha, yes I went there!
There are so many yummy options when it comes to making a good beet juice. Some people don’t like beet juices right away, but after a while they grow on ya! Beet juices have become one of my favorites! If you do try some beet juices, just don’t do more than 1-2 beet juices in a week’s time (that’s a lot of iron!). Here’s a simple beet juice recipe that I use quite frequently:
If you’re not really a fan of beets and can’t stand the flavor at all, then you can add more apples and a bit of lemon to the mix in order to hide the beet taste.
Beets are a good source of Vitamin C, Iron and Magnesium, Dietary Fiber, Folate, Potassium and Manganese. They also help maintain a healthy weight, and can even help with weightless. They do contain a lot of iron, so it’s important to not overdo it when it comes to the beet juices.
*You know this isn’t intended as medical advice right? Good. Now make sure you always talk to your doctor before doing any kind of juice “detox”.
