Food of the Week

WEEK 1: BEETS

💜Food of the week …. BEETS! 

Love them? Like them? What’s your favorite way to eat them?

🚀 They’re one of the most nutritionally dense vegetables on the planet – packing in a TON of benefits for the number of calories they contain.

They’re a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), potassium, iron, manganese, and vitamin C. 

Not only that but beets are loaded with inorganic nitrates, which can help lower blood pressure and improve blood flow. 

💪 PLUS … when it comes to your workouts, they’re linked with better athletic performance, especially in endurance sports like running and cycling. 

✅ TIP: most people toss the greens (leaves) … but they are DELICIOUS roasted, steamed, or stir-fried and sprinkled with a little apple cider vinegar.
