Why Beets Are the Nutritional Bomb!

I used to think I didn't like beets... But then I realized it was because I thought there was only one way to eat them! Boy, was I wrong. So, I started experimenting with beets and invented some cool recipes that I would love to share with you. But first, did you know just how healthy beets are?



Let's talk about the health benefits of beets. Here they are in a nutshell:

1) Beets assist in reducing inflammation and its symptoms such as pain and swelling

2) Beets contain anti-cancer properties and assist in reducing the risk of different types of cancer

3) Beets boost blood flow

4) Beets contain vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, iron, vitamin A and C and folic acid

5) Beets increase heart health

6) Beets help regulate cholesterol

7) Beets support a healthy liver function8) Beets are delicious and easy to cook! You will also FEEL healthier after you eat them.

Here's a recipe I created just yesterday. I started using Golden Beets over the holidays and they are super sweet. I have been mixing these beets in just about any plant-based dish...and they are delish! My Sweet Beets Dish


Ingredients


  • 1/2 cup EVOO (extra virgin olive oil, preferably "Irini" because it's light and sweet)

  • 3 or 4 golden beets, sliced

  • 2-3 sweet potatoes, cut in quarters

  • 2-3 russet potatoes, cut in quarters

  • 1/2 leek, finely sliced- 1/2 cup water

  • 1 tsp oregano, ground or fresh

  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Method

1) In oven dish, add all ingredients in, pouring EVOO and spices on top


2) add 1/2 water


3) Mix all ingredients gently


4) Bake uncovered at 400 F for 1 hour.

Toss half-way through.

Note: This past month I made about 3 or 4 variations of this recipe. Each time substituting one vegetable for another. I encourage you to experiment at home until you discover your favourite combination!
