Beets, can’t beat them.

There is something magical about beets….The color, the shelf life in your fridge and of course the wonderful nutritional value of this root vegetable.  This past week I found beautiful “candy cane” beet’s at Safeway.

Tonight for dinner I cooked them to serve with some meatloaf ( extreme low-fat version with organic meat) and saffron rice.

Here is the data on why I love beets!

1.Liver health, extremely detoxifying

2. Bowel regularity, good fiber content

3. Increases blood flow to the brain, dilates blood vessels to the brain

4. Positively effects blood pressure

Mama says eat your beets!
