Detox Beet Juice

Print

When I was recovering from cancer, I needed to ease my way back into eating my extremely health diet after chemo and radiation. You have to be careful because of what your body goes through during cancer. I chose to start with easy things like juices, smoothies and soups. I make this detox juice once a week and drink it first thing in the morning after my warm water with lemon.

Further Food Commentary:

Juicing can be a great way to deliver nutrients into the bloodstream quickly, and this juice recipe is packed with micro-nutrients. Beets are full of vitamin C, folate, potassium, and antioxidants. Beet juice contains nitrates, which the body converts to nitric oxide, beneficial for improving blood flow and naturally lowering blood pressure.

One thing to note is that beets are a starchy (high-carbohydrate) vegetable, and coupled with fruits, this juice can be high in natural sugars. So drink a ½ cup portion per sitting, or add in a bunch of non-starchy vegetables, like leafy greens, to reduce the sugar load per serving.
