Calming Cranberry Beet

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz baby kale
  • 4 oz beets - scrubbed and chopped

Is your immune system feeling a little overworked? The antioxidant power of pomegranate, plus the high vitamin C content of beets, cranberries and tangerines will give you a healthy glow from the inside out. Beets are high in fiber and folate, and also in manganese, which helps support your liver (the liver processes toxins, and is usually greatly affected in times of stress). Ginger works to ease any stress-related inflammation, and walnuts provide the healthy kind of fat our body needs to burn energy efficiently.
