Beet the Blues Beetroot Juice

Hello Lovelies,

I don't know about anyone else but every year I fall foul to the dreaded Summer cold!

After spending a week sneezing into the closest Kleenex my body felt like it needed a mega boost.  In such situations I always turn to my trusty beetroot and ginger juice.  It's a super smooth, sweet juice that will make every cell in your body jump for joy.

Juicing is the best (and quickest) way to feed your cells nutrients.  Extracting the fiber from  the fruits and vegetables means that all the vitamins, minerals and enzymes are absorbed straight into the bloodstream, giving you that quick kick of goodness!

For years I refused to even try beets, those bright pickled spheres bobbing around in a jar of vinegar made my stomach turn.  But a couple of months ago I was bought a beetroot juice by a colleague, not wanting to seem rude I gave it a sip and to my utter surprise I loved it.  That day started my intense lover affair with the humble yet amazing beet!

If I'm feeling tired or run down I will always whip up a Beet the Blues Beetroot Juice as It's the perfect fatigue buster!  Beets are a true super food, they're a great source of iron, potassium, magnesium, folic acid and vitamins A, C and B6 as well as being jam packed with anti-oxidants,  with all that going on they've definitely earned their super food status!

Alongside my beetroot I pop in an inch of ginger, two carrots and a green apple.  

The iron from the beetroot allows your body to carry more oxygen to your cells allowing them to function more efficiently, the carrots give you an immune-boosting amount of vitamin A, while the ginger calms and soothes the digestive system (great if you're feeling queasy).  To top it all off I add a green apple which provides another kick of anti-oxidants as well as some anti-inflammatory goodness, could you ask for anything better?

What I really want to know is which juice/smoothie do you lovelies reach for regularly?
