On juice days, I prefer to drink a carrot/beet based juice in the morning
& a green juice in the afternoon.
This is a "variety" thing--I'm trying to mix it up.
I've been really experimenting with beets...they're pretty funky....and this is the best juice I've come up with so far!
1 Gala Apple
I put this through the juicer (I have an Omega 8004). Then filter through a sieve twice to remove as much pulp as possible. Beet pulp is particularly repulsive to me.
This made two full glasses of juice. Tastes best really cold--iced cold!
Why have I been experimenting with beets?
Beets are very high in antioxidants & nitrates
Antioxidants fight off free radicals & prevent premature aging = beautiful skin!
Nitrates are good for optimizing blood flow
Other phytonutrients in beets have anti-imflammatory effects & detoxify the body
