Fibro Daily April 16, 2013

Based on this article that saysbeetroot juice helps lower blood pressure, we give you the following recipe:

BEET-LE JUICE from Jaime Young of FitSugar

INGREDIENTS/span>

  • 1 apple, cored and sliced
  • 1 lemon, peeled
  • 2 tall celery stalks
  • 1 beet, with the leaves
  • 1 handful of spinach (optional)
  • For added sweetness, include more lemon and apple.

DIRECTIONS

  • Add the apple, lemon, and celery to a juicer.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the beet into manageable pieces and then add it to your juicer. Note that because of a beet’s thickness, it’s best to juice last so that you don’t need to clean the pulp out of your juicer until you’re done.
  • For extra greens, add spinach.
  • Voilà! Enjoy your delicious, ruby-red juice.

In case you’re wondering why beetroot juice does this, it’s because of the nitrates. Other good nitrate sources include:

  • lettuce
  • cabbage
  • fennel
