Let’s create a summer wellness juice that’s earthy but sweet and just a little bit bright, that combines powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, carotenoids, vitamins, and minerals. Let’s drop some beets on this so-called life. Let’s make something that tastes damn good and looks like liquid rubies (that’s important)!
This fresh juice came together when I was feeling a little guilty about my recent diet–lots of unhealthiness present, to be sure–but I wanted something a little different from my regular, super earthy beet-and-carrot deal. So I used those go-to root veggies as a base (venturing from a green juice, seeing as how we do, no matter how unhealthy we’re noshing otherwise, eat approximately eighteen pounds of kale and/or spinach per week), and added spicy, anti-inflammatory ginger and fresh turmeric, along with a peeled lime for some metaphysical spice.
If only cleaning our little let’s-just-try-it-out juicer weren’t such a pain in the tuchus.
