In my opinion nature’s bounty of beautiful, nutritious vegetables is completely underrated. And beets are a perfect example of this. They brighten up any meal with their gorgeous earthy reddish-purple color and are highly nutritious to boot.
We eat beets in my house about once a week (our fave veggies are kale and broccoli, not a day goes by without those brassicas at our table, in fact tonight we’re having both, along with this grilled lemon chicken dish). So, back to beets. This root vegetable is thought to have nutrients that contain both antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. The nutrients in beets are also thought to assist in detoxification. That’s not why we eat beets though, we just like ‘em. They’re delicious and super easy to prepare!
- 3-4 medium beets
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
