Beets and I go way back! Every Sunday in my native country of Jamaica, we would drink beet and carrot juice mixed with condensed milk and nutmeg! It was like a ritual or at least it felt like it.
As soon as I became an adult, I no longer even tasted much less drink beets. I rarely ate carrots until I found out that I was allergic to dairy.
I wasn't just allergic to dairy, but wheat, corn and a bunch of other stuff that were now the main staples in my diet.
Fast forward and one day after I first because a raw vegan, I drank a-lot of beets and discovered that my poop was red.
It totally freaked me out as I had no idea a veggie could be that powerful and so quickly.
Then I had my first baby via C-section and needed to get the saline out of my blood in a hurry... The doctors told me the anesthesia would make me constipated, so I thought to myself,
"Thanks for the heads up, but no thank you"
I came home and started juicing!
Since then I've had tons of good reports with beets, but the taste can be a bit pungent and I can be a bit of a sweet tooth sometimes.
Recently, with the topic of the coronavirus, most people have been super tense and that eventually slows down the digestion. So if you or anyone you know is struggling with going to the potty, or taking Metamucil, Benefiber, etc, here is a drug free, no side effects remedy that you can use instead.
Put all ingredients in your juicer, starting with your turmeric, ginger, lemon, apple and finishing up with beets and carrots.
Chew your juice!
