Beets are an extremely nutritious food source for your family. They also happen to be really tasty and delicious. Beets are packed with vitamins and minerals: vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C, choline, folic acid, iodine, manganese, organic sodium, potassium, iron, calcium, copper and phosphorus.

Reasons to include Beets in your Family's Diet

  • Easy to eat: Beets can be purchased from the market and stored for days in the refrigerator. Simply, slice couple of beets and store them in the refrigerator. Every time you feel hungry or feel the need to munch something, have the beets you saved earlier. No cooking required and cold beets taste good as well.
  • Beets fight cancer. Studies show beet juice inhibits the formation of cancer-causing compounds, particularly in the colon and stomach.
  • They prevent heart and vascular diseases. Beet greens and roots contain the phytochemical betacyanin, which reduces levels of the homocysteine, an amino acid related to heart and vascular diseases. Plus, compounds in beets dissolve inorganic calcium deposits that cause arteries to harden.
  • Beets guard against Alzheimer's and dementia. Nitrates in beets open the blood vessels and increase blood flow to the brain, which can help prevent cognitive disorders in older adults.
  • Beets are good for your eyes. The lutein and zeaxanthin in beets support macular and retinal health.
  • They help lower blood pressure — and prevent clotting and inflammation.
  • They help you exercise longer. Researchers at the University of Exeter in the U.K. published a study in theJournal of Applied Physiology (Aug. 6, 2010), reporting that a nitrate in beet juice increases stamina and makes exercise less tiring, allowing people to exercise 16 percent longer.
  • Beets are good for your skin. Beets contain vitamin A, which maintains healthy skin and mucus membranes as well as protects against lung and mouth cancers.
  • You can have beets in the raw form as well as boiled, steamed or sautéed forms. You can also have the juice of fresh beets. However the juice of beet has a very strong taste and may not be like by all, but beet juice is an excellent health tonic. You can mix beet juice with carrot juice and apple juice to reduce the strong taste.
  • Beets are natural blood cleanser and colon cleanser.

Tips for Selecting and Storing Beets

  • Select beets that are firm. Older beets will get spongy.
  • Select beets with fresh, dark green leafy tops (greens). Older greens & beets will have a yellow tinge.
  • Store beets in the fridge.
  • Beets have an outer skin that is generally peeled off before using. If you roast them, the skin comes off easily. If peeling a raw beet, us a vegetable peeler.
  • Beet greens are edible and can be used raw in salads, sautéed, steamed or boiled. They’re also good in soups. Greens are loaded with potassium, vitamin A and calcium.
  • Beets are terrific when juiced – they’re a good cleanser. However, you have to be very careful about how much you use or it will shock your system. Find a good, reliable juicing recipe and stick to the measurements.

Our Top Ten Favorite Beet Recipes!

Beets-Roasted-Salad

Roasted Beet Salad
My husband and I could not get enough and all but ignored the rest of our meal when I served this. Even my not-quite-three-year-old enjoyed it. Actually, it was all I could do to keep her from eating all the walnuts and beets before I’d had a chance to assemble the salad!

Beets-Tahini

Beet Tahini
This particular dip is inspired by a dish I had at a restaurant serving modern Israeli food.  I love everything about it; the color, the taste, the color, the distinct beet-ness without being overpoweringly sweet, the color, how it goes with everything, and did I mention the color?

Beets-Juice

Beet, Carrot, Apple, Spinach Juice
These ingredients are really easy to find and a lot of us have them at our local farmers markets. While it does cut out some needed fiber, juicing is a great way to get veggies that would not normally be in your diet into it.

Beets--Quinoa

Quinoa Salad with Roasted Beets, Chick Peas and Orange
Here's the perfect recipe for kids who want to learn to cook. If you tell me otherwise, I simply won't believe you. Unless you don't know how to break eggs? It's really something fun to do with your kids. Put all your ingredients on the table and you will see your little darlings coming to see what's happening.

Beets-Grilled-Kale-Salad

Grilled kale salad with beets, figs, and ricotta
The charred flavor standing in contrast to the freshness of the leaves and the sharpness of the dressing makes for a salad that’s even more alluring, more va va (voom, that is) than your usual bowl of tender greens...

Beets-Smoothie

Beet Smoothies
Good thing these beet smoothies are awesome. When I told Hubby about these smoothies, he was not so excited. You can’t taste the beets at all, but you’re still getting all the nutrients of eating raw beets.

Beets-Red-Pancakes

Red Velvet Beet Pancakes
This is a modification of the Eggs in a Hole recipe above. Of course, without the bread. A great choice for those on a gluten-free or Paleo diet. Super easy and fast. Plus, only one pan to clean!

Beets-risotto

Beet Risotto
Beets add unmistakable color and hearty flavor to this risotto, offset by spicy mustard greens and tangy goat cheese. We think it would be great with beet greens as a substitute for the mustard greens!

Beets-chips

Beet Crisps (Chips)
These are super tasty, easy to make, but take a little time.  The colour was just beautiful and they are definitely great for impressing people.  Make with a few different kinds of vegetables and use a cool, quirky salt.!

Beets-Ice-Cream

Beet Ice Cream with Mascarpone, Orange Zest, and Poppy Seeds
Here's the scoop- the addition of roasted beets and poppy seeds lends the end product a festive hue and a bit of crunch.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

By J. Davis III

Category: HEALTH
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES

trackingRecently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works...

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown...

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature works.
