Beetiful Blood Juice

Beet Juice

I love learning what different fruits and veggies do for you, so when I found out some of the things that make beets so great I just had to share them with you (and a recipe!).

Besides, it’s Halloween just around the corner and this “Blood” juice would make a fabulously healthy way to start the day! Especially if you’re planning on eating junk food later…

Here’s some great reasons why we should eat (or drink) beets :

  • They have cancer inhibiting properties
  • That beautiful red colour is from a power anti-cancer inhibitor called betacyanin
  • Increases white blood cells (our fighting cells)
  • They are a great source of calcium
  • It’s a blood purifier and detoxifier
  • Promotes healthy, clear skin
  • Good source of vitamin A, B6, and C
  • Contains other fabulous nutrients such as iron, potassium, choline, folate, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, and tryptophan
  • Good for treating anemia, poor circulation and exhaustion

Sounds pretty good to me!

This is a perfect juice for fall – the deep, rich colour is so beautiful! It looks just like blood…mwwwahahaha. (I’m not good at being creepy…so don’t worry. I’ll stop now.)

    Just had my photos published for a friend who wanted me to take photos of her recipes. Fun. But well not writing a food blog. Photography yes.

    PS. LOve this recipe. I made one with grapes, beets, celery, ginger this summer. Ruby red like this. I need to look the recipe up that I made up somewhere. Calling it:”Ruby, Bliss”.
    Blessings and happy juicing. Chandi

    I didn’t like beets until I became an adult. Before that, all I had ever tasted were the canned kind. Yuck! Once I had the fresh kind, I discovered I loved them raw, juiced, steamed and roasted. So good!

    I never liked beets until recently, but I love them now. I wish I was having a Halloween party this year- this drink would be perfect!

    I happen to love beets. I think I even loved them as a kid. I grow & buy them whenever it’s the season. And my favorite recipe of all time for beets is borscht. Yum. Thanks for the new recipe.

    I love that it’s all in the name “bloody” that makes it all the more fun!

    No Halloween for me this year. Wahhh!

    I do love beets though! My favorite is a beet-orange protein smoothie I made for Valentines day last year.
