I LIKE BIG BEETS.. and I cannot lie!

I LIKE BIG BEETS.. and I cannot lie!

Just discovered my love for beets! “I like big beets and I cannot lie!” (a 90’s reference for those old enough to understand it!).

Here’s a juicing recipe for you:
3 carrots, medium sized
2 beets (mine were already cooked, no flavoring, but raw is better for you nutritionally)
1 fuji apple
1 cup of spinach
a few kale leaves (lacinto are my favorite)
1 inch ginger (not too much..it’s strong!)
optional: a handful of parsley and/mint
optional: a celery stick
optional: banana (blender status, not in your juicer)
half a cup of coconut water!

IT’S SO GOOD.

I always thought it was an old wive’s tale (read “Chinese Medicine” in quotations because it isn’t REAL chinese medicine, just my mom giving me tips, like how eating a chicken’s heart is good for your heart..?) that beets were good for your cardiovascular system and blood. Well, I was wrong, because beets ARE good for your cardiov system! I won’t bore you will all the facts but for you nutrition and science nerds, you can go here: http://www.nutrition-and-you.com/beets.html

Summary: glycine betaine!!! Que es glycine betaine? It lowers homocysteine levels, which, in high levels, can lead to heart disease. No good.  Let’s not forget potassium, vitamin C, yaaay antioxidant!
