Looking for a new shake to start your day?! Try Anne’s NUTRIENT DENSE POWER PACKED combo! 1 full peeled seedless orange, 1 cooked beet, 1 cup of almond milk (or rice/soy), 1 serving of Vanilla Isagenix Isalean organic whey protein (or other similar organic cold pressed whey protein), water and ice! I mean just looking at it you feel healthier! A combo that offers easy to digest protein, Vitamin C, manganese, fiber and phytonutrients. The wonderful red color of the smoothie comes from the betalains, which are what give beets their red/violet pigment. Many betalains function as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory molecules. To preserve the nutrients in the beets cut them into quarters and steam, keeping cooking time under 15minutes.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a full report on how juicing beets and drinking beet juice can improve performance!
Eat well! Stay hydrated! And have a wonderful Wednesday!
