beetroot, carrot & apple juice aka the caffeine hit!

I'm not sure how my love affair for beetroot started, but lately I can't get enough of the muddy, purple, turns your food a fab pink (and sometimes your white tops) vegetable. I've been using beets in everything! As a base for soup (even the leaves get thrown in) mixing it into cakes (sneaky!) steaming and tossing in salads and juicing them. Juicing has to be my current favourite. I throw in a load of veggies and bam my 5 a day is nearly boxed off and it's not even 7AM. Happy faces all round.

I've been drinking this a lot and if you need a wee nudge in the morning to get going i think you should too. So, if you want to start your day with a zing (and in my eyes, the more ginger you add the more zingy your day) you are going to need the following:

2 medium beetroots, peeled and chopped

2 large carrots, chopped

1 large apple, cored

1/2 lemon, zest and pith removed

Thumbnail size piece of ginger

Either throw all the above into a juicer or if like me you don't have a juicer (but if I did, I would have this one for sure, it looks so snazzy) you can blend the above with a cup of water and then strain through a wire mesh strainer and drink up.
