I’d die a happy woman.

If this were the only recipe on my blog you ever tried, I’d die a happy woman. I’m putting my reputation on the line for this drink, and you may not even like the way it tastes! You see, I have such confidence in the wonderfully healthy buzz you will receive after forcing down a few ounces; I know if you make it that far, you’ll be back for more. The drink heals, simple as that. One glass in the morning provides the good, stable energy a cup of coffee only wishes he could offer. And, I say this as a lover of the occasional cup of coffee.

I learned about Beet Kvass from Sally Fallon, author of Nourishing Traditions, and really, this recipe is simply my take on her work. I first tasted this drink at the 2009 Weston A. Price Conference, and soon after, I made my own. And soon after that, I made some more, continuing into the infinite yonder.

A strong liver tonic, some people have to take this drink slow, beginning with only a shot-glass or so and working up to about 4 oz morning and night. The reason being, the detoxing properties can reek havoc on a person that has a lot of detoxing to be done. Detoxing too much too fast can lead to a healing crisis, which means getting a bit sick in order for the body to kick out the toxins that got stirred up during the detoxification process.

But, don’t fear. It doesn’t happen to most, and it most likely won’t happen at all, especially if you start slow. I find this drink to be the most highly recommended and honored healing tonic within my groups of traditional food friends. A drink that’s too good not to share…

    *Love* your photography! And you're so pretty too! Anyway, thank you for sharing about beet kvass. I just read through Sally Fallon's book and saw it in there, even made a mental note about trying it, but I completely forgot. Now I must try it, now that you've praised it so highly. I remember once adding some beet to a veggie blend in the juicer and having tons of energy afterward. Oh, and a squeeze of lemon in it set it off, so try that! Thanks again.
