How This Nourishes Your Body
If you are looking for a drink that detoxifies, provides energy, kills disease, and rejuvenates your body, beet kvass is your golden ticket. Fermented vegetables bring live enzymes and probiotics to the body that are necessary for clear skin, weight loss, digestion, and balanced hormones.
Fermented beets in particular have a very favorable effect on disturbed cellular function. Many scientific studies have demonstrated that beets have a regenerating effect on the body. So much so that beet kvass is widely used in cancer therapy in Europe and is also an excellent therapy for chronic fatigue, skin conditions, allergies and digestive problems.
“This drink is valuable for its medicinal qualities and digestive aid. Beets are just loaded with nutrients. One 4-ounce glass morning and night is an excellent blood tonic, promotes regularity, aids digestion, alkalizes the blood, and cleanses the liver.”
This drink is bursting with nutrition and rejuvenation that your body will thrive off of. Super healing, super detoxifying, and easy to make!
I use liquid whey that I make from raw goat milk. You can also make liquid whey from straining organic plain yogurt. If you do not have liquid whey, you can use juice from a sauerkraut jar.
OR I have been loving this starter culture from Body Ecology: Culture Starter. I have been using this starter in the place of whey for making cultured veggies, and drinks. I have been liking this better than whey because it has a wide variety of amazing probiotic strains. Most times you may not know what may be in the whey….using the starter culture allows me to know exactly what I am getting.
1.Wash and peel beets and slice into chunks no smaller than about 1/2 inch across.
2. Put beet chunks into a clean, 1 quart mason jar.
3. Add whey or starter culture, sea salt, and enough filtered water to fill all but 1 inch from the top of the jar. Stir and mix well.
4. Close lid and leave on the counter for 1-2 days. Refrigerate.
5. When all but an inch or so of liquid is left in the jar, refill with more filtered water, stir, and close the lid again and leave on the counter for 2 days more. Refrigerate and use. When all the liquid is used up from the second batch, discard the beets and start again.
If you don’t have starter culture or whey, can you just make brine with filtered water and salt?
