Beet Retreat Stress Buster

Do you need some relief from stress? Try the Beet Retreat from one of my favorite books The Juicing Bible.

The Beet Retreat has something new in it for me, tea. I’ve never added tea to one of my juices so I thought I would try it. It turns out that I couldn’t taste the tea at all  :-|, but I could detect a little taste of celery even though it only contains one stalk.

Celery contains compounds that help inhibit the release of stress hormones into the bloodstream and relax the body.

While the calming effects of a cup of chamomile tea are well known, this knowledge has been based on folklore. New research however suggests that chamomile tea really does calm your nerves.

This is an interesting recipe and I like it. It’s not a real sweet juice, but if you like beet juice, you’ll like this one. If you need some stress relief, it’s worth a shot.

I had to make a small change in the recipe because it calls for 1/4 cup of calming cuppa tea as found in The Juicing Bible on page 261. I didn’t want to make that too, so I just used some calming chamomile tea. It does the trick and if you’re like me you want to keep things simple.

Makes 24 ounces

  • 4 carrots
  • 2 beets
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1/4 cup Calming Cuppa Tea ( I substituted chamomile tea)
