juicing for health

Beetroot Beauties

Beetroot is one of my favorite ingredients when it comes to juicing. Its woody flavor goes along perfectly when added to citrus and other fruits. It has many benefits like lowering cholesterol  and blood pressure, it is also a powerful antioxidant and a great source of folic acid. Beetroot contains potassium,magnesium, iron, vitamin A, B6, and C. Best of all it is fat free and full of soluble fibre,  low on the glycemic index thus making it great for stabilizing blood sugar.

Here are three great juices to suit your palette:

– Beetroot, orange, carrot and ginger.

– Beetroot,apple and cucumber.

– Beetroot, pineapple and pears

The best way to drink  your juice is to down it early in the morning, its a great way to kick start the day and add  along some Spirulina for an extra protein boost. Did you know that Spirulina is one of the most nutritious and complete foods on earth!

The understanding of consciousness- “A New Earth”

Eckhart Tolle’s fascinating book” New Earth” talks about  consciousness and the inner chatterbox( the ego)  that drives our minds crazy, the burn out of the ego and understanding the pain body. It also talks about  being present and living in the moment which was also discussed  in the book” The Power of Now”also by Eckhart Tolle’s.
