Beetroot is one of my absolute favourite vegetables. I am always mesmerised by its hot pink allure.
When I was a kid I hated the stuff as it generally was out of a can and made soggy sandwiches even soggier. I was introduced to the joys of beetroot in university when one of my flatmates made a gorgeous roasted beetroot and feta salad for dinner one night. I loved the contrast between the sweet and the earthy.
Beetroot is one of the best vegetables out there. It has a number of incredible health benefits including:
- Naturally lowering blood pressure
- Boosting energy and stamina
- Increases oxygen to the brain – increasing memory and cognitive function
- Anti inflammatory
- Makes your skin GLOW ✨✨
- Plus packed filled with vitamins, antioxidants, folate and manganese.
Over the years I have done a bit of experimenting and have realised how versitial beetroot can be including;
- Grating raw into salads
Beetroot is currently in season, so this month on the blog I will be sharing some of my favourite beetroot recipes.
I hope you are all ready to glow!
