Delicious Knowledge by Marni

Beets are high in natural sugars and loaded with phytonutrients. Its bright purple-red color lends itself to our blood, circulation and heart. Be sure not to throw out the greens of your beets. They are loaded with calcium and other essential nutrients. Sauté them or make some juice!
