Beets are an incredible food with amazing nutritional properties that should never be left out from our diet. This vegetable gives us lots of energy, and is highly recommended for treating anemia, blood diseases and recovery time, and is great for children and pregnant women. They have lots of iron, and are rich in carotenes, folic acid, and vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B6.
Beets are very low in calories, and contain lots of fiber, leaving you feeling more satiated. This limits your consumption of other foods that could lead to weight gain. This vegetable can be eaten raw, boiled, or preserved. They’re mainly eaten in salads, although they can also be eaten by themselves, with garlic or onions or dressed with a bit of salt, vinegar and oil.
