Sliced, diced, roasted or raw, beets are delicious no matter how you cook them (or don’t)! These colorful vegetables are sweet, mellow and earthy, and at their best when paired with sharper flavors like lemon or feta. They’re also extremely healthy. That’s because beets are high in potassium, magnesium, iron, and vitamins A, B and C. For pregnant women, they’re even said to aid in new cell growth.
Beets are a great source of energy and they’re beneficial to mental health because they contain betaine, which is the same substance used to treat depression. Still don’t have a taste for beets? These scrumptious recipes might just change your mind.
