Berry Red Beet Juice

It’s no secret, we are a beet-loving family.  I grew up eating them, and we often include them in our meals in a very simple way – usually boiled and served with a drizzle of olive oil.  My son loves them so much as well, which is so awesome since we can’t deny the amazing health benefits.

Beet Juice

Beets have been used in folk remedies for centuries, and the main reason being that they are loaded with betanin, an amazing antioxidant.  Their intense, deep red colour is not only gorgeous to look at, but shows how loaded they are with antioxidants. They are a wonderful tonic for the liver, working as a purifier for the blood.  Besides all of this, they are loaded with many other minerals and vitamins and taste delicious.  They work especially well with berries in smoothies or juices, as well as citrus and greens.  I’ve made many different beet juice concoctions, but my son simply loves this one!  Beets are naturally very sweet and moist, which makes them ideal for incorporating in a variety of beet dishes, desserts, or juices.

Beet Juice

I don’t know about you, but I can barely keep my eyes open past 9:00pm and this weekend was a jam-packed party.  We celebrated two friends’ birthdays last night, and we were home in the wee hours.  I was so exhausted today and I notice that I always crave fresh juice when I’m low on energy.  The energy boost from nutritious juices always seems to amaze me.  I felt so much better after having a tall glass of my Berry Red Beet Juice today.  

So I’ll be spending the rest of my Sunday with pink-stained hands.  Have a great rest of the weekend, everyone!

  8. That’s so wonderful that your son loves beets! I don’t think I even tasted beets as a kiddo and rarely ate them as an adult. I discovered how wonderful they are only after going vegan and now I’m a lover too!! Celeste πŸ™‚

      Isn’t it amazing how many ‘new’ foods we discover after going plant-based?!
