Beet veggie smoothie

This beet smoothie is a  delicious way to get your daily portion of vegetables. It is like a savoury vegetable salad with just a little punch from the fresh ginger. In addition, the olive oil is great for the health of your nervous system.

Barry, I am grateful for your continued interaction. You may have noticed that I am changing my 'business model'. There'll still be posts to beetsuite but not with the old regularity.
