Beets Me Juice

Ever since I started juicing, I’ve constantly been thinking of everything I can juice, trying new things and just enjoying the process.  What I’ve noticed from juicing is the way it makes me feel.  I feel a lot healthier, rejuvenated and just filled with energy.  My skin also looks fabulous.

Lots of people complain about the leftover pulp, but boy does my garden thank me for it.  The pulp makes an excellent plant food for my flowers and I don’t even bother composting it, I just dig a hole next to the plants and chuck the pulp right in and cover it.  Easy as that.

Beetroot is a root vegetable that makes a great juice, the colour alone is something to jump for joy about.  A friendly warming, everything will look like a murder scene.  This little ball has a lot of juice in it that just want to go everywhere.  So please DO NOT wear white, when making this juice.

BEETROOT JUICE BENEFITS

  1. Prevents premature ageing:   Beets are filled with antioxidant and because of the high antioxidant level in them they will help prevent cell and DNA damage, that causes ageing.
  2. Detoxes the liver:  The glycine beteine supports liver detoxification and stimulates the function of liver cells.  Beet juice benefits the liver by protecting it against fatty depositions causes by alcohol abuse.
  3. Immune boosting: The juice boosts the immune system and helps fight inflammation .

This juice doesn’t just contain beetroot.  It also contains carrots which is great for you eyesight and skin, spinach which is great for digestion and is an anti-inflammatory and ginger that’s great for immunity boosting and helps with nausea.

Harry Potter Home Inspiration – Professor Dumbledore’s Office

Yes, its Friday and that means its time for Harry Potter home inspiration.  I will probably run out of steam with this soon, but until then I will enjoy these fun blog posts.

Professor Dumbledore’s office, is a rather cluttered space, filled with books, globes and memories suitable of a hundred and something year old wizard.  His space is filled with bold statement pieces and walls covered in bookcases.   The art work consists of a lot of portraits with big frames.  His office makes me giddy with possibility.

Here is my take on his office.

^^ The first thing you have to get is a bold statement desk and all these have that chunky, wooden I should be in your office right now, feel to them.

Harry Potter Home Inspirations – The Dursley’s

PromoHP1_Famille_Dursley

Finding inspiration from Harry Potter is rather easy.  You can find something that everyone will like.  Unlike the Weasley’s the Dursley’s have a more feminine with a slight hint of sophistication home.  The Dursley’s are not a likeable bunch, but you can see some lovely decor in their home.  The neutral striped wallpaper, big framed wall art, little room under the stairs, floral print, large standing lamps, wall sconce, big display cabinet, the beautiful round dining room table all makes this a wonderfully splendid home.

^^ Harry doesn’t live under these stairs, but these are sure good ideas.  A small guest loo that is sure to impress to your guest and bring out the child in you and a lovely reading spot, it just makes me crave stairs.

Harry Potter Home Inspiration -The Weasleys.

Normal_poahighres49

Harry Potter is filled with home inspiration and the Weasley’s definitely have some of the most amazing decor inspiration.  They already rocked the mismatched dining room chairs, brightly coloured bookcases, whimsy teapots and just a very homely home.  Its like Harry potter said “Its brilliant!”.
