My focus this week is: ‘set your foundation and open to grace’. Root to rise, in order to find inner harmony. Therefore I explored Tadasana (mountain pose), a really grouding yoga posture. Just like yoga postures, food also has an influence on the body and on our energy system.
Therefore, I will share a juice recipe that will help to ground your energy. Root vegetables in particular have a grounding energy and help to balance the Muladhara (root) chakra. Red is the color of the muladhara chakra so I choose beetroot for its color and rooting benefits for this recipe.
Beets also have a lot of health benefits. They lower your blood pressure, support healthy hair, nails and bones, support the tissue growth, stabilize the blood sugar levels in the bloodstream and act as a powerful anti-oxidant.
Grounding Beetroot Juice
Since beetroot has an earthy flavour that is not appreciated by everyone, I lightened the beetroot juice up with grapefruit and pear, and added ginger for a spicy note.
I made 400 ml of juice with the following ingredients. I had a medium size beetroot, a really big grapefruit, and two small pears. So it might differ if you use different sizes.
You need a juicer for this recipe.1 Beetroot
1 cm slice of ginger (add more or less conform your taste)
1/2 a fresh lime or 1 drop of doTerra Lime essential oil
Juice the beetroot, pears and gingerroot.
Squeeze the grapefruit and 1/2 a lime.
Mix the juices together and your Grounding Beetroot Juice is ready.
Serve the juice in a beautiful glass, find a nice spot, root your sitbones down into a chair and take the time to enjoy your juice.
