Its that season! This arctic cold and the illnesses going around is pushing me to support my immune system with some nutrition-packed vegetables. One of the easiest ways to boost your immunity is to actually gently “cleanse” with vegetables that naturally detoxify. Coupled with a whole foods-based diet, this is a great way to get extra protection from the winter bugs and blues.
Beets are one of natures great detoxifiers and this root vegetable is easily accessible right now in grocery stores.
I love to juice beets and prepare them simply by roasting them. Roasting brings out their natural sweetness.
