“You’re The Only Women” by Ambrosia is playing in my ears as my feet hitting the pavement start to slow down into cool down mode. After upping my running mileage into the double digits, there is nothing I look more forward to than my 1/2 mile cool down walk to carry me home. Along with the cool music and sun kissing my face are the thoughts about a tasty drink I have waiting for me upon arrival…. My Beet Juice.
Beet juice really?? That’s what EDEN is looking forward too? YES I AM. There is no better drink to rid my body of post run inflammation than beet juice. Addition to the beets I also add ginger, carrots, Honeycrisp apples, and cucumber. Adding ginger root to the beets not only help a tummy that can get upset from a lot of running, but it is also a fantastic natural remedy for my arthritis. The carrots in the juice help protect my skin from the long exposure to running in the sun and the Honeycrisp apple???? I just love the apple 🙂
What You Will Need:
3 Beet roots, washed clean and stems removed *****DO NOT get rid of the beet tops! They are wonderful sautéed together with a little bit of olive oil and garlic!!
4 Carrots, scrubbed clean
2 Honeycrisp Apples, scrubbed clean
1 Inch Ginger root, Peeled
1 English Cucumber, scrubbed clean
Now that you have what you need,
Prep Your Mis en Place 🙂
My juicer has a small opening so I have to cut my apples and beets in half. ***Remember to keep those beautiful beet tops!!
In your juicer, juice all the ingredients together.
That is it! It really takes no time at all to serve yourself up a batch of this lovely post run drink.
LOL keep it CLASSY!!!! Wine isn’t the only thing that can be served in wine glasses. I LOVE this juice.
Save the remaining pulp from your juicer and add it to your compost heap 🙂
