Thyme Roasted Candy Cane Beets

Beets, Liver Detoxification & Acne

When you roast up the beets, the natural sugars caramelize and create the most delicious way to boost your body’s detoxification. My client’s in The Clear Skin Solution love how naturally sweet this recipe is.

“But Katie, don’t our organs already detox for us?”

Absolutely they do…but only when they’re not clogged up. Good ol’ Mother Nature didn’t design us to receive such an influx of the toxins we bring in to our bodies’ every day. So when these organs get a little too overwhelmed, they aren’t able to do their jobs efficiently.

Our main detoxification organ is the liver. That guy alone is responsible for over 300 functions in the body — including filtering your hormones. And if you have an overload of hormones stuck in your liver, skin issues like acne start to pop up.

Detox Boosting Betalains

Long story short…you need to be eating lots of foods to support liver health. Thanks to the betalains found in beets, they actually speed up the liver’s phase 2 detoxification process. Betalains are what give the beets their signature deep red colour.

In phase 2, your body neutralizes toxins and makes them water-soluble so they can be excreted by the body during your next trip to the bathroom. Clearing out your liver with foods like beets, helps it do its job better and filter acne-triggering hormones on out.

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
