Raw Beets

Beets: Eat them RAW

I used to always cook my beets. Either in the oven, or boil it over the stove. For the first time I ate my beets RAW, and it was amazing. How did it take me so long to do this?  When you cook beets they lose more than 25% of their folate. When you eat your beets raw, they get to keep their nutrients, vitamins and minerals. 

  • wash your beet
  • peel your beet
  • cube your beet (small cubes)
  • throw it in a salad for a nice little crunch

The End. So amazing. Raw beets rock the house!

How do you eat your beets?!
