Beetastic Punch – The Benefits Of Juicing Beets

juicing beetsWell, you know that juicing helps people experiment and try vegetables that they normally wouldn’t eat right? It certainly did that for me. I never use to eat ginger on anything, but now I use it quite often in my juice recipes. It took a little getting use to though. The same goes for beetroot.

Beetroot was another one I didn’t care for until juicing came into my life. I love beets now, but I didn’t start liking them until I started juicing.  We had beets occasionally with dinner when I was growing up. It was one of those vegetables that I just didn’t like as a kid. Kind of like broccoli. I would rather sit and stare at them for 20 minutes before taking one bite. I usually got away with it too.

After I started juicing I tried a beet in a juice recipe and loved it. They’re sweet, red and delicious. They turn any green juice red and just about anything else they touch too.  So if beets aren’t your thing, try them in a juice. You might just be surprised at how good they really do taste raw. Beets are a tremendous source of instant energy too.

Juicing Beets

Not only are beets a great boost to your physical well-being and a wonderful source of iron, studies have shown beets to be an immunity booster and guard against cancer, especially colon cancer. When you are juicing beets they contain ZERO trans fat and ZERO saturated fat. They are also low-calorie! Juicing beets gives you a boost in energy because of their carbohydrates, but unlike processed foods which are high in carbohydrates, beets will energize your body. Juicing beets can be regarded as body fuel.

  11. I eat beets everyday as my salad contains it. Even I don’t like beets to eat when given alone i’d rather mix it with other vegetable and eat. But seeing your Love for Beets Rich, I think I should try making juices out of it.

    Thank you for such a great article! I was vehemently opposed to beets thanks to the way my school prepared them. Colorful? Yes! But they looked so gross. Lo and behold, 30 years later, I’m buying them up, slicing them up, and juicing them!

    This is a great post. I started juicing because I didnt like the textures or taste of certain vegetables, like beets, collard greens, kale, and celery and wanted to optimize my vitamin/mineral intake. Using beets in my juices helps take the tart, or bitter taste out of the greener juices like collard greens. I love its subtle earthy tones. Yumm!

    I have always liked beets and have included them in my salad. I love their color, the crunch and the sweetness. They just look like little rubies. I have never juiced them but I am going to be in the market for a juicer soon and have to give them a go. Great post!

  16. I juiced for a week to clean out my digestive system. I used beets in almost every juice. There is just so much flavor and it made me feel great. Worked perfectly and felt 10 times better when I was done.

    After I finished juicing I switched over to a 7 day meal plan to keep my digestive system 100% and it worked perfectly.

    I love Juicing!
