Beet, Carrot, Apple, and Ginger Juice

I was reading posts on Facebook when a friend asked for advice on what to do with beets. Suzy suggested she make this juice. After some investigation, I found out that it is posted on a site called GOOP, which Gwyneth Paltrow has. Who knew? I do know that Ms. Paltrow is beautiful and appears healthy, so she's doing something right!

Apparently, this is a basic colon cleanse. Suzy says, "If you want to maximize the health benifits to juicing, don't put juice from fruits in. It interferes with the alkalines from the veggies. If you dont care and just want a good sweet drink, throw in the apple and that little bit of lemon."

Beets are said to lower blood pressure, carrots pack a super beta-carotene punch, apples are cancer-fighters and ginger just loves your heart.

TIME: 5 minutes

1 large or 2 medium beets, cut into wedges
1/2 lemon, zest and pith removed
2 large carrots
1 large apple, cut into wedges
1" piece of ginger

Juice everything into a glass, give it a stir and enjoy.
