Beets are Beautiful

Beets are a superfood powerhouse. They are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (good for bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas), betaine, and vitamin B folate. Together folate and betaine help lower blood levels of homocysteine, which can increase your risk of heart disease by causing artery-damaging inflammation. Not to mention beets have been used throughout history for lip and cheek stains! They’re the perfect whole-body beauty food.

  • 1 ½  cups coconut water
  • ¾ cup water

  • Place in Vitamin and blend into a juice. But don’t strain, sip the fiber!

I feed my body and skin nourishing, healing foods that are easy to process. My Detox Soup is a delicious cleansing companion. It’s vegetarian, but can easily be turned into a bone broth for meat-eaters by adding a whole chicken and simmering for several hours. I sip this soup morning, noon, and night!
