Don’t Forget the Struggle/Don’t Forget the Beets: Hardcore Beet Juice
I could give you a list of fugazi reasons why you should be drinking beet juice: It’ll lower you blood pressure, it’ll increase your stamina (you know where), It helps increase blood flow (including, you-know-where), and there’s some evidence that Beet Eaters decrease their risk of heart disease and metabolic syndrome.
Cool story, but beet juice is awesome because it’s deliciously sweet, full of natural sugars, and looks cool as hell. What other veggie juice let’s you roleplay True Blood? Not even blood oranges.
The one downside is you might mistakenly believe that you’re bleeding to death when you hit the terlet: The dark carotenes of beet juice may give your urine and bowel movements a red color. This color change is harmless. Since beets are high in oxalates, people who tend to make oxalate kidney stones may want to avoid beet juice.
This juice is a hardcore natural energy drink. Drink the whole thing and you’ll be buzzing around like a crackhead who hit the scratch off. You might want to share it with a friend or cut it with seltzer and make summer coolers for two.
3 medium beets peeled and chopped
2 apples, cored and chopped
½ bunch celery
About 1 cup of watermelon (you can sub any sweet and watery fruit here)
Soda water (optional)
Use your juicer to extract all juice from the fruit and veg.
