Happy New Year to all of you! My last activity around these parts was more than a month ago & the only explanation is that I was pulled into a blackhole called Netflix, sucking up all of my free time. Blog or watch the next episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Just one more…episode…curse you, poor self-control!!! I’m not going to make a New Year’s Resolution list because I always break them & forget them, so I’ll just actively try to control my Netflix binging habits & place myself in a type of productivity rehab. Let’s begin with the first step towards a fresh start: a juice with detoxing properties. I’m not a medical professional (yet) nor am I a nutritionist, so I highly encourage you to use some common sense & do your own research. I’m just some person with a blog, so…yeah, don’t cite me, bro. I call this juice the Sweet Beet Zinger & it’s a great first drink in the morning after a night of partying too hard. But if you partied too hard, get yourself some water to rehydrate & a great meal packed with protein, amino acids, & vitamins.
Please remember that my recipes are mostly guides more than exact formulae, so if you don’t like celery, use another green leafy plant such as kale, spinach, romaine, etc. Ginger really gives this juice the zing you need to start off your morning & it’s great for your digestion. If you want an extra zing, try adding cayenne or turmeric to your juice! No juicer? No problem. Make this into a smoothie & add 1/2 cup of unsweetened iced green tea or coconut juice. Be sure to cut up the beets really well!
What’s your ultimate hangover cure? I can tell you mine isn’t just juice, but noodles. Oodles of noodles. ?
