3-Ingredient Juice that ‘Beets’ the Bloat

By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Summer sunshine means more time outside and easy opportunities for fitness.  Refreshing, electrolyte rich beverages are touted for keeping you cool and hydrated on a long day at the beach or replenishing losses after a workout.  But many have added sugars and artificial ingredients like colors or are simply deplete in phytonutrients.  This juice is perfect on a hot day or anytime you want a simple, easy, just 3-ingredient healthy drink full of veggies.

Beet juice is now well known for its endurance enhancing phytonutrients like natural nitric oxide.  Beets also contain some sodium, important for keeping healthy fluid balance when working out or sweating in the heat. With the potassium-rich carrots this combination not only tastes great but can help keep muscle cramps at bay.  Carrots also offer antioxidants like beta-carotene, and other properties in carrot juice shown to help reduce oxidative stress in breast cancer survivors and may even be effective in inhibiting the growth of leukemia cells.

This juice is anti-bloat so perfect for your beach trip!  Ginger has natural anti-nausea compounds and beets are a go-to for constipation or slow digestion.  All ingredients in this juice, being mindful to use a smaller sized beet and keep to just one, fall under the FODMAP friendly profile, meaning they’re low in certain types of sugars that can promote bloat and wreck havoc on the gut for IBS sufferers.  Read more on Keeping Bloat at Bay this Bikini Season.

The beautiful carrots and beets for this juice came from our local Farmers’ Market.  With Farmer’s Markets open in many areas, local produce is getting easier to find.  This means great cost savings plus higher nutrients, less pesticides, and supporting your local community.  Visit www.localharvest.org to find a farmer’s market near you.
