If you haven’t noticed, I like to choose a food that is in season for the 12 Months of Real Food. That means the November edition had to be the one and only beets!
Beets have been growing in popularity–and for good reason! Beets have the phytonutrient betalain which has been proven to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and detoxification powers. Studies have also proven that the pigment in beets, betanin, can reduce tumor growth! Check out some more impressive stats below!
As you can see, it is recommended to include one to two servings of chenopods per week due to their health benefits. Lucky for you, I’ve rounded up the best beet recipes around! You’ll have more than enough inspiration to surpass the recommendation!
