Red Genius Juice Recipe

Here's a treat for your body. No tricks here. Just a simple healthy recipe for vegetable juice. The recipe comes from Sandy Halliday, detox specialist. I interviewed Sandy recently about her ebook The Definitive Detox Diet.

With a name like Red Genius, who doesn't want to get some of this nutrition in their bodies? Beets are rich in phytonutrients called betalains that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support for the body.

Have you got a juicer? What do you like to juice in it? And what do you do with the extracted fiber?


  1. I looooove beets! Will be giving this one a try. Hubby downloaded Sandy's e-book, too, and has been researching the Gerson nutrition therapy for a while.

    We love our Omega vertical juicer. Our faves are apple carrot (with some greens & broccoli thrown in), peach/apple/broccoli during peach season, and a rich tomato veggie. Occasionally can manage a mostly greens, as long as there's some lime juice and maybe an apple to tone it down a bit.

    Pulp goes to one of three places: worm bin, compost bin, or the chickens :-)

  2. Nancy! You have chickens? I'm sooooo jealous!
