Yesterday, we had a very late night of loud music, great company, amazing food, and too much wine at our friends’ wedding! I must say, it was definitely the best vegetarian meal I’ve ever been served at a wedding. I usually get the average main course dish, minus the meat, which usually results in boring steamed veggies and mashed potatoes. Last night, I was served a cutlet with a beautiful tomato sauce, and a couple of ‘meatballs’ with a fantastic risotto. I made my husband taste it first as I was certain I was looking at a piece of pork. He tried it, and immediately suggested I send it back, because it was in fact meat. Well, the chef personally sent his message back to me, that it was absolutely not meat. Completely vegetarian. I was very impressed with the creativity put into this dish. It was so delicious!
Well, this post is actually about the fact that I NEED to detoxify today. My liver is not so happy with me, I am dehydrated, and need to refuel. So, I turned to my favourite juice, beet juice!
This juice is amazing for your health. Beetroot juice is one of the richest dietary sources of antioxidants and nitrates which improve blood flow throughout the entire body. It is a great detoxifying agent for your liver. Not only is it so good for you and tasty, it is so pretty in colour!
Here it is:
Makes 1 glass of juice
- 1 beetroot
- 1 green apple
- 2 carrots
- 1 handful spinach leaves
- Wash all your produce well. Slice the beetroot in four to allow it to fit through your juicer.
- Place all ingredients into your juicer. Juice, serve, sip and smile!
