I just got back from the grocery store.  As usual, I loaded my cart with peppers (red, green & yellow), carrots, celery, zucchini, summer squash, spaghetti squash, asparagus, brussells sprouts, and beans.  As I was walking out I noticed a really ugly, orange monstrosity hanging on a green stem.  So I bought it.

This ugly, orange monstrosity turned out to be a golden beet.  I did a quick google search on how to prepare it and found out that it can be cut into small pieces and sautéed.  Perfect.  I added it to my usual mix of veggies. 

The verdict?  Not delicious, but not bad either.  It tastes a bit like carrots.  Just throw them in the sauté pan before your other veggies.  I learned they take longer to cook. 

Oh, and beets are actually a super food.  They are believed to be an excellent blood purifier because they reduce toxic chemicals that contribute to heart disease, stroke, dementia, and peripheral vascular disease.  They contain the nutrients betaine, folate, potassium, and magnesium (to name a few) and have also been known to replenish the iron lost during menstruation.

So add a little color to your vegetable medley this week and pick up some amazing health benefits too! 

I can’t wait to hear about what you tried and how you liked it.
