About the Recipe
Like spicy food? This juice is for you. Imagine your favorite Mexican dish in a glass. This one is great for headaches and congestion. I also love this one due to the fast-acting metabolism boost in the jalapeno and cayenne.
Spicy foods can kick your metabolism into high gear. Juicing a tablespoon of chopped red or green chili pepper can temporarily boost your metabolic rate by 23 percent. This lasts for 30 to 45 minutes after eating.
Capsaicin (the chemical that puts the spice in your life and melts away body fat) also helps to inhibit inflammation and is beneficial in the treatment of arthritis and nerve disorders.
- 1 jalapeno
- 1 beet
- 2 leaves red Swiss chard
- 1 lemon
- 1 dash of cayenne
- Wash your vegetables. Cut the top off of the beet. Juice your vegetables and put a little cayenne pepper when stirring this juice up. (Stir up the juice with the pepper when done).
