Red Beet Grapefruit Juice

Red Beet Grapefruit Juice

This delicious Red Beet Grapefruit Juice is rich in nutrients and a great cleanser. When summer turns into fall, I always feel like cleaning up my diet and my life. Summer is my season for indulging. I love summer. I spend more time outside, I hang out with friends more, I cook less, eat out more and I indulge more in the sweet things of life. A glass of wine, some ice cream, dinner at a nice restaurant. Fall is my typical ‘detox’ time. It’s when I draw in, re-think life and reflect upon what’s important to me and what direction I want to take in my life. Fall is about restoring balance, becoming still and drawing back in.  I de-clutter my mind, my body and my home. When it comes to detoxing my mind, I spend more time indoors, in silence, meditating, contemplating, and writing. When it comes to my yoga practice, I go back to the basics, the foundation. It’s a whole different energy. In summer I ‘fly’ high, I burst with energy and don’t need much sleep. In fall and winter, I look for stillness. I become quieter, more mindful. I rest more. When it comes to the foods I eat, I eat slower foods, foods that ground me down. I also juice more. I love to use beets in my juices. Beets are grounding and deeply cleansing. They help detoxify the liver and stimulate digestion. I love to add ginger, cinnamon and orange blossom honey. They add some warmth and sweetness to this slightly bitter Red Beet Grapefruit Juice.
