Blushing Garden Juice

beet juice

Juices are absorbed so quickly by our systems. The best way to savor a juice is to “chew” it first in your mouth to activate the salivary process of digestion. On an empty stomach, juices absorb through the stomach lining, taking much less energy to digest. Beets and their greens are a great liver cleanser, and lemon juice stimulates the liver to make enzymes. Recipe from  Warming Up to Living Foods* by Elysa Markowitz.
