Why You Should Be Drinking Your Vegetables

I grew up in a health conscious household. Even before she became a doctor of natural medicine, my mom always explored alternative medical practices like acupuncture and juicing. She’s always touted the many benefits of juicing, from better gut health to increased energy. Juicing helps boost your immune system, aids in better absorption with little digestive effort, and allows you to incorporate many different types of produce and supplements into your diet all at once.

After my latest health scare, I decided to follow her advice.  Here’s one of my favorite recipes you should try out.

  For increased energy and cardiovascular health, try this Beet Banana Smoothie from Watch What U Eat https://www.watchwhatueat.com/beet-banana-smoothie/

Beets really help me manage my anemia. They help regenerate red blood cells and are a great source of iron. But I don’t like the way they taste. The bananas, honey, and vanilla extract help to sweeten the smoothie up, making this an excellent snack option. 

Next time you’re looking for a quick breakfast or something portable, try this smoothie out and let me know what you think in the comments below!
