Bring the Beet Back

Are you getting enough whole foods in throughout the day? Last week I was lacking energy – all I wanted to do was sleep, my hormones were all over, motivation was very low and lots of negative self talk. Today, on the beginning of a new week I sit here with myself realizing I was lacking the food & nutrients that fuel my body. Before I go further into the types of super foods I filled my tank with today I’d like to remind you that every person is different and one persons fuel food, may be another persons poison.

Recently Nikki got a juicer for the house and all I have to say is I am OBSESSED! It started with having celery juice every morning and now I have began venturing into a new land of ‘what can I come up with next?’

With the new week here I am Bringing the Beet Back – my beat!

  • 3 Organic Love Beets Beets
  • Half Cucumber
  • 1 Apple – cored
  • 2 Handfuls of Spinach
  • 2 Drops Young Living Ginger+ (Distilled from the root of the ginger plant)
  • 4 Drops Young Living Lemon+ (Cold pressed from the fresh fruit peel of lemons grown in Argentina and the United States)
Did it taste good? Heck yes! It was the right amount of
beet taste.

Who doesn’t love fun facts about food!? Well.. I know I do!! Since my enrolment with Integrative Institute of Nutrition I love learning about the affects each whole food has on the human body! Fun facts about this juice:

Apple – Lowers LDL cholesterol, aids digestion and regulates your blood sugar. They’re a good source of Fiber & Vitamin C.

Beets – Improve your blood pressure & mental function, reduce inflammation, boosts stamina. They’re an excellent source of Folate and a good source of Fiber, Manganese, Potassium & Vitamin C.

Cucumber – Helps hydrate & cool your body, skin health, aids weight loss and support eye health. They’re a good source of Vitamin K

Ginger – Helps with nausea, motion sickness & digestion, boosts your immunity and promotes cell growth.

Lemon – Promotes detoxification, supports weight loss, boosts your immunity and reduces inflammation. They’re a good source of Vitamin C.

Spinach – Helps with skin, hair & bone health, aids digestion and reduces inflammation. They’re an excellent source of Vitamin A & K and a good source of Vitamin C.

Become a super hero with super foods!

My name is Shannon, in August 2014 I decided to make a change in my life... Started working out on the regular, eating Clean foods 80-90% of the time and began working on my mindset. I'm here to talk to you all about food, working out, non-toxic products, dance and living a free life - whatever that means to you!
