Beets

Beetroots are a good source of nutrients, fiber, and many plant compounds. Beets improve not only heart health but also can reduce blood pressure and enhance your endurance. Many athletes drink beet juice before high-intensity workouts or competitions to increase their oxygen intake and retention. Be sure not to forget the greens because they are some of the most nutrient-rich greens you can consume! They can be used anywhere you would use spinach, in salads, sauteed, or cooked into delicious casseroles.

Try roasting beets to bring out their sweetness, add them to a salad, or just eat them as a side dish. Give these refrigerator-pickled beets a go! And for even the pickiest eaters, try these chocolate beet muffins. They’ll never know what that secret ingredient is!
