Beet it!

After teaching my class yesterday morning, I made a trip over to Basil Bandwagon (I love this place!) to get a fresh Blueberry Protein Smoothie. As I entered the store, there was a display of this product.  It piqued my curiosity because I am always looking for different ways to feed my body awesome stuff and share it with my peeps.

As soon as I got home, I pulled out my juicer and ninja to make my smoothie.  Here’s how I did it:

Step 1: In the juicer (If you do not have a juicer, no worries, you can put all ingredients into your smoothie blender, it will just have a different consistency

  • 1 “ fresh ginger (unpeeled, peeled if you are not using a juicer) 🥔
  • 12” English cucumber (unpeeled, peeled if you are not using a juicer)🥒
  • ½ of a lemon skin removed (if not using a juicer, remove seeds)🍋
  • 1 granny smith apple, cut in 4 pieces (unpeeled, peeled, and pitted if you are not using a juicer)🍏

Run them all through the juicer. 

Step 2: In the Ninja:

  • 8 ounces of water
  • The fresh juice
  • ¾ cup frozen mixed berries
  • 2 tbsp Sunfood Organic Beets & Mushroom Powder

Blend

🍷 This yields about 16 ounces.  I had half of it yesterday and will have the other half
today. 

If you wish to make your smoothie a little sweeter, you can add the juice of ½ an orange.🍊

 Why would you go through all of this trouble? What’s the benefit?  LOTS!!!

Here’s some of the health beni’s I’ve researched about beets❣️

  • powerful antioxidant
  • anti-inflammatory
  • supports vascular health
  • insulin hemostasis
  • blood pressure
  • renal health
  • shown to decrease blood glucose peak

And what about mushrooms? 🍄 Here’s some info that pertains to A. bisporus mushrooms, aka your typical white button mushroom found in the grocery store.

  • Immune support
  • Antioxidant
  • Improves vitamin D status
  • May lower risk of cancer
  • Supports gastrointestinal health
  • Can potentially improve metabolic syndrome

Most of the studies I have reviewed say that further research is required to confirm and support findings, but the evidence is strong so far. If you’d like to dive deeper, check out my resources below.
