5 Days of Health – Day 2 – Beets!

It can lower your blood pressure by helping relax and dilate your blood vessels.

Helps fight environmental stresses and acts as an anti inflammatory.

It’s been associated to anti-cancer properties and can help detox your liver and blood.

No wonder I felt so good after that wonderful little vegetable.

That day I had my salad it was with yellow beets (did not know there were yellow ones) but I plan to make a red one with goat cheese like I had. I see a recipe on this page for it and plan to make it just to see if I like both. In any case, there seems to be plenty of recipes on this page so you should be able to find one you might like to try. It’s sweet, it’s tasty and its beneficial. I love food like that! Don’t you?
