Detoxifying Effects of Raw Beetroot
You’re probably familiar with beetroot in other form than raw and may never have thought that it can be eaten raw. Actually the most benefits of this vegetable are preserved only in its raw form.
What it tastes like? It has a sweet flavor and a fresh and crisp texture similar to that of carrots. Beetroot greens can be added to salads or smoothies but I prefer beetroot to greens. I have also a favorite salad with beetroot and I’m trying to prepare it as often as I can.
Chlorine and sulphur containing in beetroot make it a valuable product for cleansing and detox, especially for lymphatic system. It’s also full of vitamin C, copper, folate, manganese, sodium, and potassium. It’s an old remedy for menstrual problems and is used for improving digestion and kidneys cleansing.
Choosing and storing
Choose only organically grown beetroots because it’s one of the vegetables that tend to absorb a lot of chemical substances that soil is treated with, Pick only smooth, round and firm to the touch roots. Small and medium sized beetroots are tender than bigger ones. They can be stored in the refrigerator up to a week.

How to mix food in order to taste great and to obtain the detoxifying effect at the same time?
Food combining experimenters have come to some common rules of mixing foods.
Here are several examples of successful mixings:
• Nourishing dressing from avocado grounded with water and sea salt and a few drops of lemon juice. Another option would be adding garlic, parsley and dill plus a few drops of soy sauce.
• Grounded orange mixed with coriander powder and black pepper. This mix tastes good with beet and prunes.
• Grounded persimmon or banana plus chili, or plus curry and ginger, or plus cinnamon/powdered cardamom/powdered nutmeg and a drop of lemon juice.
