Whether you’re training for your first first 5K race or your first marathon, add juicing to your diet. Juicing has shown to provide significant health benefits and nutrition from antioxidants, enzymes and photo nutrients. All of these are terrific for athletes of all levels and ages. Try this Beet-Carrot Juice for a start. It’s so easy, fresh and tasty.
- Antioxidants-These protect the body from cellular damage. Juiced fruits and vegetables provide antioxidants that can improve strength and stamina.
- Enzymes-Thes are present in a variety of raw fruits and vegetables. Juicing retains enzymes that help climate toxins from the body for a cleaner fueled body.
- Phyontutrients-These can be obtained from fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and legumes. These help boost your immune system.
If you’re looking for a juicer, check out Omega Juicers. They have developed the most efficient and reliable juicers available, and they are frequently being used by pro athletes during training and competitions.

Grishma, I typically do peel the skin first! great question
Alison, this sounds very refreshing and healthy! Thanks for sharing it. I am absolutely new to this juice cleanse stuff and I have one question for you. Do you peel beetroot skin or carrot skin before juicing?
Great combo. I have little beets growing in my raised bed, I look forward to the day when I can juice them :-)
I go through phases with juicing. Sometimes I do it daily and sometimes I go for months without. But fresh juice is so energizing and I really should do it more often. Beet juice is one of my favorite additions!
I'm a sucker for beet juice... always love that vibrant color.
A juicer is still on my "Want" list. Or, should it be on my "need" list ? :-) This looks so refreshing and healthy!
Great information Alison! Always get the best from you! Happy Friday
I must try this! Looks so healthy
I'm with Brian. I am all about Beets!
Love the combination of carrots and beets!
