Celebrity Chef George Duran really knows food. The polylingual chef and comedian have been known for hosting popular TV shows like Food Network’s Ham on the Street, TLC’s The Ultimate Cake Off, and acting as host and culinary contributor for Good Morning America, as well as guesting on shows including Live with Kelly, NBC’s Today Show, CBS This Morning, The Wendy Williams Show, The Dr. Oz Show, The Tamron Hall Show, and many others.
George boasts a large repertoire of culinary talents, which propelled the success of his popular cookbook, Take This Dish and Twist It. His book is packed with useful cooking tips, comical anecdotes, and most importantly: mouthwatering recipes for deliciously unexpected takes on comfort foods and snacks. Needless to say, George’s opinion is a valuable one when it comes to food, and now that he’s a dad too, healthy foods have taken a front seat.
“Feeding kids sometimes means finding ways to make healthy foods taste delicious so they’ll be excited to eat them,” says George. “I love having drinks around that give them a nice serving of fruits and veggies. Beetology is my favorite option for that because it’s not sweetened with added sugar and doesn’t need to be. My kids love it just like it is!”
Cold-Pressed Beet Juice
In recent years, people have become increasingly motivated to prioritize the health and well-being of themselves and their families. With this improved health consciousness, the demand for nutritious, natural beverages free of additives has risen as well, which is where cold-pressed juices come in. Due to the hydraulic press extraction process, cold-pressed juicing utilizes significantly less heat than traditional juicing, resulting in greater retention of the ingredients’ vitamins and nutrients2.
Unfortunately, this process can equate to price points that can be inaccessible for some, with cold-pressed juice bar prices sometimes ranging up to $20 a bottle. But at an MSR of just $3.99 per 8.45 oz bottle, Chef George Duran recommends Beetology, which makes nutritious cold-pressed beet juices with sustainably sourced ingredients accessible to more people than ever, no matter the season.
Healthful and delicious, Beetology cold-pressed juices are guaranteed to quench your thirst and satisfy your sweet tooth without any added sugar while giving you the fruit and vegetables your body loves and craves. Beets have been consumed for centuries or even millennia for the positive effects they can have on a person’s body, and they continue to be a favorite in health food circles for the same reasons.
Initially used in ancient civilizations for their ability to relieve aches and pains, beets remained a prominent natural ingredient for many ailments over time. We now understand beets to contain high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, which can provide relief for pain, as well as reduce the risk of certain cancers. In addition to this, beets are a great natural source of nitrates, which are found to help improve blood flow. For this reason, athletes and coaches often choose beet juice to help with muscle recovery and heart health.
Beets are also commonly used for detoxification, including in juice cleanses. They are a naturally occurring source of betalin, which not only gives them their signature red color but also helps to flush toxins from the body. In place of these toxins, beets provide healthy levels of folate and vitamins A and K, as well as high levels of fiber, manganese, copper, and potassium.
Cold-pressed Beetology is made using the entire beet when it’s fresh, meaning you get all of these benefits right at the tip of your fingers. When food is as beneficial to your body as beets and beet juice, it’s important to have it around all the time – and that means not just during beet season! It’s also a good reason to incorporate it into as many foods as possible! That’s why Chef George Duran recommends these kitchen hacks using Beetology cold-pressed juice:
- Sweeten your mulled wine with Beetology to add some nutritional benefits.
- Turn any pancake mix into red velvet pancakes by using Beetology in place of other liquids.
- Add a burst of color to your candied yams recipe by cooking the yams in Beetology.
Biology comes in five beet-powered blends, each with its own tasty twist: Beet + Lemon + Ginger, Beet +Veggie, Beet + Berry, Beet + Cherry, and Beet + Tropical Fruit.
