Beets – Health Benefits and Recipes
September 18, 2013
I have recently discovered the amazing health benefits of beets. Beets are full of nutrients that help us look younger and feel our best. They contain the antioxidant betacyanin as well as iron, maganese, potassium, silica, and fiber.
Here are some of the benefits of eating beets:
-purify the blood
-boost the livers natural defenses
-lower cholesterol levels
-regenerate immune cells
-help maintain healthy bones, hair, nails and skin
The other thing I like about eating beets is the variety of ways you can use them. I have added them raw to a smoothie or roasted them in the oven and eaten them warm with my meal as a side dish. I also like to use the roasted beets cold or at room temperature on a salad. Below are some of the recipes I have made up and used with beets. Give one or all of these a try. The smoothie recipe is very refreshing and gives you energy!
I hope you enjoy these recipes. Let me know by leaving a reply some of your favorite beet recipes.
Have a great day!
