French - Cheers to Friday and this grey day with this super happy red juice. Beetroots juice is one of the best natural source of anti-oxydant and nitrate which both help in improving your muscles, bones and brain functions. Whether you are going to study, work or train, beetroots juice is one of the best juice you can drink before to do so.
As this weather inspires me no more than cooking pastries, for once I'm gonna change my recipes' books for this new best-seller book from Lena Dunham Not That Kind of Girl, where the author illuminates the experiences that are part of making one's way in the world: falling in love, feeling alone, being ten pounds overweight despite eating only healthy food, having to prove yourself in a room full of men twice your age, finding true love, and most of all, having the guts to believe that your story is one that deserves to be told.

Beetroot was for years used by the Romans to cure stomach and intestinal problems due to its high level in soluble fiber. Beets are also full of vitamins C which helps boosting your immune system and in potassium which helps keeping your muscles and nerves healthy.

Carrot is very high in vitamin A, vitamins B and C, Iron and Calcium. They can decrease cancer risk due to the high amounts of beta carotene and help eliminate the free radicals that cause cancer from the body.
Ginger is very good to increase your immunity level by fighting the growth of bacteria and boosting your ability to fight infection and disease. It also works to neutralize stomach acid and increase the secretion of digestive enzymes in the stomach.
