Beets by Whit
First off, they’re high in fiber and low in calories. A 1/2 cup of beets is around 40 calories, with 2 grams of fiber, meaning you can eat a ton and stay full forever. They are also packed with vitamins and minerals (seriously tons of them). And the antioxidant that gives them their piercing, blood-red color (Betalain) is believed to help combat cardiovascular disease.
They are the definition of a superfood, that is of course if superfood was actually a scientific term.
Beets can be shredded and eaten raw, baked, boiled, and roasted. Today, I’m going to show you the easiest way to make them: baked.
