Fiona’s Health and Wellness ideas: “Detox with Beetroot”

Beetroot is one of my most favourite vegetables and rarely a week will pass without me having incorporated it somewhere in my diet. Thought a powerful, superfood full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, it is thought beetroot may :
. Boost stamina and endurance
. Fight inflammation
. Lower blood pressure
. Support detoxification
. Provide slow releasing energy
. Improve immune system
. Lower cholesterol
. Improve brain function

Beetroot and wellness

Personally I like to add beetroot in its raw form to salads and soups whenever possible , having become aware that not everyone shares a passion for beetroot an alternative solution to incorporate this wonderful  crimson purple vegetable into your diet is to juice or blend in a simple recipe such as :

2 beetroots
1 carrot
handful blueberries
I inch ginger
1/2 litre coconut water or plant based milk
Mint to garnish
