Did you know that increasing beetroot intake through your diet can offer important liver support? It also encourages healthy bowel movements.
Beetroot is rich in betaine, a substance which encourages your liver to process toxins, provides protection to the liver and bile ducts (encouraging healthy bowel movements) and has healing benefits for the liver.
So here's a delicious way of adding the brightness and health properties of beetroot into your day. It is also a nourishing option to offer when entertaining.
What you’ll need:
400gm fresh beetroot
2 litres water
500ml apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup boiling water
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 small red chilli, seeds removed and finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp almond meal
Pinch Himalayan, Celtic or Peruvian Pink salt (I use one from here with added seaweed, for thyroid health)
What to do:
Boil the beetroot whole in water and vinegar for 30-40 minutes, or until easily pierced by a skewer
Leave to cool in the water and vinegar, then drain and peel and chop thickly
Place the beetroots and all the remaining ingredients into a food processor and process and smooth
Serve with seed crackers or veg sticks and enjoy as part of your nourishing nibbles
