This being our wellness issue, however, reach for the juicer, and push through in-season peeled beets. The result is a subtle and sweet, dark purplish juice; and when paired with carrot or apple, it’s a zingy thirst-quencher thought to lower blood pressure. Time to put some beets in your eats this January.
