I’m going to start this post off with a boat load of honesty; I have huge discipline problems when it comes to staying on a diet plan. I’ll start a healthy eating program, then a couple of days go by and all I want is a McDonalds or Pizza and Cheesy Chips… and I give in. But, now that I’m getting married in less than 8 months, I seem to have the motivation like never before. I want to look the best that I ever have on my wedding day, in my wedding dress, walking down the isle to my Husband. So, now that I’ve got this motivation, I like to start my day off right with this fresh juice. The earthy tones of this juice are complimented by a spicy hint of ginger.
Beetroot, the superhero of superfoods, is known for it’s good source of iron and folate. Some of the other benefits of Beet Juice are as follows:
- Betalain: a colour pigment that is a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and aid in detoxification substance. It has also been researched that Betalain may hold anti-cancer activity. However, Betalain benefits are lost when cooked – so always drink raw.
- Iron: Because Beetroot is high in Iron, Beetroot Juice helps in reversing Anaemia.
- Skin Benefits: Drinking Beet Juice regularly can benefit, prevent and cure of skin inflammations such as acne. The juice also helps eliminate blemishes and promotes healthy skin and hair growth <<< definitely something I’m interested in!
There are a ton more benefits to Beetroot juice, and you can find them all (including the ones I’ve stated above) by following the link at the bottom of this post. Until then, find the recipe below!
