Beet it

Beets are in season. Good for roasting and boiling, yes, but did you know that beet juice is a remarkable anti-cancer food and is also excellent for detoxing the liver and kidneys? And, of course, if you’re feeling a bit backed up—read: constipated—beet juice will get things moving again. Still, a warning: Don’t drink the juice by itself; mix with oranges or apples, which also are in season.
