Food of the Week: Beets

24 Jul

Beets are very detoxifying, this is thanks to a powerful antioxidant called betacyanin, which helps cleanse the liver, the kidneys and the gallbladder.

They are high in vitamins B3, B5, C, Folate and beta-carotene, calcium, iodine, magnesium, zinc iron and fiber.

Beets stimulate the immune system and the production of new red blood cells. They are helpful against cancer and maintain an alkali pH in the body.

Beets can be cooked or eaten raw. I love them raw in juices!

Remember… Eat Healthy, Be Happy!
