The Rescuer

PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES

NUTRITIONAL BITES

Beets are of course, near and dear to my heart.  I love to juice with them because they have so much to offer our bodies, such as their ability to purify our blood and liver. This is due to the Betalin pigments in these plant kingdom jewels that supports the body's detoxification process. Be forewarned - this juice is a a little more intense, with the addition of dandelion leaves which are a little bitter but also do a fabulous job of supporting liver detoxification.  I have no hesitation in turning to The Rescuer at any time but this juice is especially appreciated after a night of over-indulgence!

INGREDIENTS

1 whole beet, unpeeled (rough ends cut off)
15 or so dandelion leaves
5 sticks of celery
1/2 lemon with rind
1 apple or pear

LET'S JUICE!

  1. Juice the soft fruit first (apple/pear) then follow up with the beet, dandelion leaves and lemon. I like leaving the celery till last as I find it cleans out any remaining veggie pieces that may be stuck in the tube. 
  2. Drink up!
