Soaked in Gold Elixir
ELIXIRS ARE MAGICAL LITTLE POTIONS. THIS ONE PACKS A BIG ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PUNCH.
Whenever I'm feeling a little achy or sluggish, I know that I need to manage inflammation. This is my go-to beverage for revitalizing my body from the inside out. Elixirs are meant to pack huge doses of health into small vibrant packages. Your drinks should only be 2-4 ounces of the juice.. Keeping these drinks shot sized means you aren't overwhelmed with sugary (although natural) calories. The goal is to get an added nutrition and wellness boost, not sip a meals worth of calories.
INGREDIENTS: SERVES 2
+ 1 small Golden Beet
+ 1/2 Lemon
+ 1 Yellow Carrot
+ 1/2 large Orange
+ 1/2'' chunk of fresh Turmeric
+ 1'' chunk fresh Ginger
+ 1 tsp Bee Pollen (optional)
Juice the Ginger and Turmeric first, then juice beet, carrot, and citrus (I prefer to leave the rind on). Top with a sprinkle of bee pollen.
+ Make it Extra Special
I top my elixirs with a few ounces of mineral water for extra hydration and trace minerals.
