 If you do not have a mandoline to julienne the beets, slice into matchstick-sized pieces or grate.

No beets? Use carrots instead.




Nutritional Highlights:

Apples contain a type of fiber called pectin, which acts as a prebiotic to feed the good bacteria in your gut. The fiber in apples also contributes to their blood sugar balancing properties.

Beets are hearty root vegetables that are known to help with improving blood circulation and athletic performance.
