Why Beet Juice Is An Essential Part Of Our Athletes Daily Nutrition

By Biju Thomas

Here’s a video we made in the Skratch Labs Mobile Kitchen this week on The Amgen Tour Of California where we’ve been cooking for Levi Leipheimer and the Omega Pharma Quick-Step Cycling Team.

In this video Allen Lim talks about why beet juice is an essential part of our athletes daily nutrition and also briefly demonstrates how easy it is to use our Omega Juicer which you can purchase here.

You can find the recipe for our beet juice in The Feed Zone Cookbook. But to give you a little head start, I’ve included the recipe below the video.

Enjoy the video and have a great day out there!

The Feed Zone Cookbook includes several of Biju and Allen’s beet recipes!
