Beetroot & Ginger Juice

So, you know how I said my juicer was broken, then my wonderful hubster fixed it? It’s still broken. And we just bought some lovely fruit and veg for juicing. Of course. Anyway, I managed to juice one lot up before I gave up on the bloody thing.

I needed a decent juice. This long weekend has been pretty unhealthy for me. We celebrated O’s first birthday with a party on Saturday. I can’t even remember what happened yesterday (can you tell I’m tired?). But let me tell you, when you’re so used to eating “clean” and no sugar, dairy and minimal gluten, having a day or 2 of gorging on shit can really mess you around!

Sugar really affected me. I felt it almost instantly. And dairy affected Olivia (she is still letting some rippers go!). I was actually looking forward to eating like normal again once the party was over. And I love being able to say this is now our normal! It’s great to be able to see how crap I really felt though, it reassures me I’m definitely on the right path.

I thought I’d take a pic and share this juice with you. I know I’m always looking for new combination ideas!
This one has…
  • 1 beetroot (medium size!)
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 small oranges
  • 1 green apple
  • ginger

I added the green apple after the above picture was taken, obviously. I’m smart like that. I like my ginger to give my juices a decent kick so I added a fair bit. Especially when I’m juicing things like beetroot. I hate beetroot. So why are you juicing it?! Because I know it’s good for me! Huzzah!
