The ingredient: beets
Whether you’re cooking ’em up or blending them to drink, beets have a “just rained” earthiness to them that tastes inherently healthy, which they 100 percent are.
What’s in it
Beet juice, also known as beetroot juice, is a favorite menu addition for those interested in adding more raw foods to their diet because it contains phytonutrients as well as antioxidants, and the carbohydrates in the root vegetable provide energy.
Why it’s trending
Elite athletes have been sipping beet juice for the past few years, believing it gives them added edge by getting more oxygen to muscles. For the rest of us? It’s all about the taste. Compared to straight-up green juices, beet juice goes down smooth—not too sweet, not too bitter—making it a delish healthy go-to.
