St. Louis is cold.

And sunny.

And unhurried.

The people here are kind and welcoming and patient. We now have a quiet, quirky little home all to ourselves in the city. Walking distance to Forest Park. And you can see the Gateway Arch from our front steps.

For the first time in my adulthood I have a driveway and a backyard now. And come spring I’ll have a garden and a compost to tend to. That is, for sure, my favorite part. Midwest life is calm. Undoubtedly, there will be an adjustment period. But for now all is well.

2014 was long. Tiresome, and sometimes challenging, filled with lots of uncertainty. I welcome 2015 with open arms. I am excited to explore St. Louis. And mostly, I’m looking forward to a fresh new year, limitless possibilities, loads of travel and a brand new start.

The months/weeks leading up to our move were a mess, physically and emotionally. I wrote about the transition a lot, that was a big part of my therapeutic process. Then, my inbox was flooded with beautiful words from all of you. Your well wishes, supportive vibes and positive energy came rushing in. You reading, you listening, you reaching out meant everything to me. Your messages have been received. And, I’ve been carrying that light with me on this journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

In the midst of our moving process, with all that worrying, stressing, packing and celebrating {moving the week between Christmas and New Years is basically insanity} our immunities were compromised. We were living off brothy soups and so many green juices. Green juice is king when it comes to feeling good, and this beet grapefruit green juice is my favorite. The earthiness of the beets, mellows out the tartness of the grapefruit. For me, this combo never tires.

Beet Grapefruit Green Juice

Prep Time 5 min
Cook Time 1 min
Total Time 6 mins
Serves 24 ounces

If you don't have a juicer, you could blend the ingredients with 1 cup of filtered water and strain out the pulp.

Ingredients

  • 2 ruby red grapefruit, peeled
  • 1 medium red beet, trimmed and scrubbed
  • 4 handfuls of greens {see notes}
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1/8 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • knob ginger {optional}

Directions

One by one run each ingredient through the juicer.

Then add in the pink Himalayan salt and stir.

Recipe Notes

Any greens will work in this recipe. I like to use baby spinach, beet greens, kale or a combination of all.

    Eep! I love St. Louis – I went to college there and spent four years exploring the area. It’s a wonderful place with an amazing food community. I interned at an architecture firm that specialized in restaurant interiors, so I had a chance to interact with a lot of the restauranteurs there – the food community is something I sorely miss since I’ve moved. In fact, I still tell my friends from STL to keep copies of FEAST to give me when they visit.

    I love juicing beets. I’ll have to try this with the grapefruit!

    I love the idea of beets in green juice! I have been doing more smoothies with fruits and vegetables, so I’m trying to figure out what I can put in the blender. A juicer is on my birthday wish list.

    Can this be made into a smoothie? I don’t have a juicer and prefer to get the whole benefit.

      Sure – combine 1 peeled grapefruit, 1/2 medium beet {raw + chopped}, the greens, ginger, salt and 1 cup water.
