Beets are one of my favorite veggies to juice. Not only do they juice well they also make your juice a beautiful red color! Well that red color is Betalain which is a great antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifier. Beets are also a valuable source of iron and provide oxygen to your red blood cells. I am always on the look out for ant-inflamatories and ways to increase my iron intake as a compliment to my running.
FIERCELY RED PINEAPPLE BEET JUICE
1 whole pineapple ( I actually probably juice 3/4 and eat the other 1/4!)
1 whole cucumber
1 inch of ginger
a handful of greens ( I used some Kale here but if you have the greens from the beet that is great to juice too)
1 cup of coconut water ( I filter through my juicer coconut water throughout the process to help feed through the greens and other items that get a bit clogged up in there. It’s also great to add to help hydrate and replace electrolytes)
I hope you enjoy this red juice! Perfect for after a run or hot yoga class!
Juice a day,
Fiercely Red Wendy
