As a surgical nurse for many years a common patient complaint is “constipation”!!

An extremely common side effect of pain medications. Hopefully Popeye’s power will do the trick!!

1 cup Cooked diced beets or canned beetsv
½ cup Chopped Spinach
½ cup Cooked carrots or canned carrots
1 piece 1” Long Dandelion root chopped
1 Tbsp Molasses ~ optional
In a blender combine Juice, Beets, Carrots, Dandelion root, and Molasses

Secure lid and blend until smooth.... with any luck you will have a smooth move in the morning!
