Beetroot-Pear-Thyme Juice

About two years ago my mom bought me a juicer. I was hooked right away. Actually, juicing is what kickstarted the succes of my Instagram account and later on my food blog and overall healthy lifestyle. It really all started with a juicer, so get your juice on!

Beetroot juice is one of my favourite juices, next to the classic ginger-carrot-apple juice. When you google ‘beetroot juice for athletes’ a lot of benefits turn up. Studies prove that drinking beetroot juice is great for runners & cyclists, because it can increase exercise endurance thanks to the high ammount of nitrate it contains.

Professor Andy Jones: “Our study is the first to show that nitrate-rich food can increase exercise endurance. We were amazed by the effect of beet juice on oxygen uptake because these effects cannot be achieved by any other known means, including training.”

Traditionally, people use beet juice to heal the skin, detoxify the liver, it would prevent tiredness and it may kill fungi, because it’s a strong antioxidant and has anti inflammatory properties. Besides all these benefits, the tasty is really good too, especially if you combine it with pear & thyme: a golden couple.

What do you need for Beetroot-Pear-Thyme Juice 

  • 1 raw beetroot
  • 1 pear
