Amaranth Sunrise

healthy juice recipe

I absolutely love the Amaranth-ish color of this red juice recipe, and not only because the tone particularly suits my complexion.

The red pigment in fruits and vegetables comes from the natural plant pigments called phytochemicals. Red fruits and vegetables get their red color from lycopene or anthocyanins. These phytochemicals act as antioxidants and fight free radicals, helping to reduce the risk of cancer, among other benefits.

This recipe also enjoys the added health benefits of rhubarb. Rhubarb is excellent for brain health and to build healthy bones. Furthermore, rhubarb promotes skin elasticity and helps to prevent it from wrinkling or getting saggy. Who needs Botox, right?

Do not use rhubarb leaves, as these can be toxic.

If you are looking for good juicing recipes, try this one. The taste is just sweet enough, and the lime and mint give it a fresh kick.
