The Joy of Juicing: Blackberry Beet Juice with Apple and Ginger Plus 16 More Healthy, Delicious Beet Juice Recipes

“Wow! I feel good, like I knew I would!

I feel good, like I knew I would!

So good!

So good!

Cause I got juiced!”

No, I am not channeling James Brown.

I feel good because I just finished drinking a large glass of beet, kale, celery and pear juice

and I am grooving on a natural high from all of the powerful nutrients I ingested!

That’s why I love to drink fresh, organic juices!

I’ve found that juicing is a wonderful way to bring a renewed sense of health, energy and

vitality to my life.

Like me, many people turn to juicing in order to get more nutritious fruits and vegetables

into their diets.

Embrace the Joy of Juicing!

Juicing provides numerous healthy benefits– especially if you don’t eat enough fruits

and vegetables–like my husband, for example.

It’s a quick and convenient way to ingest more vegetable and fruit nutrients.

In fact, I know moms with children who are picky eaters, who make tasty juices for

their families to boost their nutritional intake, painlessly!

You can also use up fruits and vegetables that are about to spoil by adding them to juices.

Some people have found weight loss success with juicing–when it is done properly.

And best of all, nutrients from specific produce can help prevent disease.

The Whole Truth…

In spite of it’s numerous benefits, juicing should not be considered a replacement for

whole fruits and vegetables in your regular diet.

Juicing provides the same vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that are found in whole

fruits and vegetables–but without the fiber–and fiber is important.

Instead, you should drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices as an additional measure for

keeping yourself healthy and fit.

It’s important to use organic fruits and vegetables as much as possible in your juicing.

Organic fruits and vegetables have not been exposed to the chemical fertilizers and

pesticides used in traditional farming.

If you cannot use organic produce, be sure to peel and thoroughly wash all of your

produce before you put it into the juicer.

The peel will contain most of the harmful chemicals.

Try to use locally-grown fruits and vegetables in your juicing.

I love to buy organic produce from the farmers at my local farmer’s market.

Of course, the best option is to use produce that you’ve grown yourself.

Every mile that a piece of fruit needs to be transported to get to you, increases the

carbon footprint of your glass of juice.

It also increases the chance of your produce becoming contaminated with bacteria

or chemicals.

Health Benefits Of Juicing

For people who do not like to eat whole fruits and vegetables, juicing can serve as an

effective alternative.

Having a glass of mixed fruit and vegetable juice early in the morning, not only supplies

essential vitamins, enzymes, and minerals to your body, but also revitalizes and provides

substantial energy for a busy day.

Apart from this, there are many other health benefits of juicing:

•Easy Digestion

People who are unable eat fresh fruit and vegetables because of digestive problems

can consume them in juice form.

This makes digestion easy, as juices are already in a “pre-digested” form.

Some experts advise slowly “chewing your juice” to maximize nutritional benefits.

Juicing helps you receive all the important nutrients required to keep your body

healthy without applying any unnecessary pressure on the digestive system.

•Diversity

Be it at home or at a restaurant, many of us are used to eating the same salads and fruits

every day because they are our favorites.

I must admit I am guilty of that myself!

Juicing vegetables and fruits that you do not normally eat results in a more balanced diet.

•Balanced Diet

Juicing with a wide variety of fruits and vegetables can increase intake of nutrients, and

specifically the all-important plant-based phytochemicals that help prevent disease.

•Weight Loss

May people turn to juicing to aid their weight loss efforts.

Drinking fresh fruit and vegetable juice provides essential levels of vitamin C to the bloodstream

that helps to support the body’s immune system and reduce obesity.

•Instant Energy

Juicing almost instantly increases your energy levels, as compared to eating them raw.

By drinking juices you can completely eliminate the time required to digest raw food, thus

giving you an almost instant ‘energy kick.’

That’s the natural high I was singing about earlier!

•Supports Immune System

Antioxidants along with phytochemicals play an important role in developing our immune system.

Varying our diet on a regular basis and consuming juices made from different kinds of fruits and

vegetables will significantly increase the number of phytochemicals and antioxidants in the blood,

which in turn assist in developing a better immune system and also protect cells from damage

caused by free radicals.

•Repairs Vital Organs

Fresh fruit and vegetable juice can help repair most vital organs of our body.

For example, carrot juice is capable of repairing the liver, intestines and kidneys.

Antioxidants present in carrots, such as, beta-carotene, are known to protect liver and kidneys

from cholesterol and other toxins.

Consuming carrot juice regularly can also delay the aging process.

It is also capable of fighting cholesterol and poisonous toxins that often get accumulated in the intestines,

and flushes them out of the body.

•Purifies and Enriches Blood

Blood is the fuel that provides us with the necessary energy to perform our daily routines.

Blood requires as many nutrients as possible to cope with the workload that is placed on it.

Drinking various kinds of juices made from fruits and vegetables not only purifies the blood,

but also enriches it.

People who have less red blood cells or insufficient hemoglobin to carry oxygen, often suffer

from anemia.

Juices made from fresh leafy green vegetables that are rich in iron can help fight anemia.

•Memory

Studies indicate that by drinking fresh vegetable and fruit juices regularly, you can increase

your memory considerably.

Findings from the ‘Kames Project’ indicated that people who drink juice at least three times a week,

lessen the chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease by 76%, compared to those who take it only

once a week.

You don’t have to tell me this twice! 

The Joy of Juicing Beets

The Joy of Juicing: Blackberry Beet Juice with Apple and Ginger Plus 16 More Healthy, Delicious Beet Juice Recipes

One of my favorite vegetables to juice is beets.

I never liked to eat the beets my mom prepared for us as a child, but once I discovered beet juice,

I developed a new appreciation for this healthy vegetable from the taproot of the beet plant.

One of the cultivated varieties of the Beta vulgaris plant, beets are used as food, for food coloring

and also for various medicinal purposes.

They make great juicing vegetables because they add a powerful nutritional punch.

are a:

Very good source of: Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium.

Good source of: Folate, Fiber, Potassium and Manganese.

Juicing Prep:

It is best to peel the beets for juicing to avoid the commonly tasted “muddy” aftertaste.

Make slices to fit the opening of the juicer.

The stalks can be juiced too.
