Detox Juice

20140904-095803.jpg

I’m loving the  fat and juicy beetroot available in the markets right now and they cost next to nothing. I juice the whole lot, leaves and all, to maximise the detoxing qualities of this amazing root vegetable. It will add a sweet, earthy flavour to your brew which makes for a nice change. Beetroot increase the liver’s production of detoxifying enzymes, whilst betacyanin (that which makes the beet red) has antiviral and antioxidant  qualities. What’s not to like about that? Kids are back in school, life is returning to normal and there is no time like the present to stay healthy. Here’s my Thursday recipe. Enjoy today! x

Big handful of spinach

3 big handfuls of chopped kale

Juice the lot and add as much or as little coconut water as you prefer – some may not like any. x
