A Beet Salad Recipe That’s Hard To Beat – HA!


Perhaps I am an oddity in this ever evolving world but I like things that … well, others simply EW. That includes things like sauerkraut, liver, and the like.

One of the things I remember stealing as a kid from my g-ma as she cooked were boiled beets. No salt, no pepper, just a beet and pop it in the mouth.

Now, living in America with all the amenities and luxuries she doesn’t cook much. And let’s face it, beets don’t exactly  make a star appearance on the Food Network Channel. So I decided to venture out into the world of the great wide web to see if I can find something new and interesting that included the good ole beet. And I found it!

I have yet to try this but the ingredients sound simply amazing and oh-so-good for ya. And as a mom-to-bee I am, after all, growing a bean inside me too. By the way, did you know they are amazing for an expecting mother? It just keeps getting better and better, so give the beat a chance.

What’s so Good About Beets?

Well aside from being delicious (I swear it!) there are a ton of benefits from vitamis to a good cleanse. Here are some more:

  1. Not that I need it but they say that beets are natures viagra because they contain lots of boron that helps in productions of human sex hormones.
  2. They have a ton of vitamins and minerals like A, B, C and folic acid. Beets are particularly beneficial to women whom are pregnant, as the vitamin B and iron are very beneficial to new growth cells during pregnancy and replenishing iron in the woman’s body.
  3. Beets help prevent cancer by detecting and removing abnormal cells before they become cancerous. The phytonutrients–proanthocyanidins–that gives beets their rich purplish-red hue has potent anti-cancer capabilities.
  4. They help lower blood pressure.
  5. Beets contain betaine that is found in some remedies for depression.
  6. They are great for anti inflammatory that help with the effects of aging and disease.
  7. They aid in purifying your blood.
  8. Beets help cleanse your liver.

Okay, now for a confession… I always loved beets but now I am IN love with them! So much goodness.
