There aren't many ways of eating beets. You either shred them raw on your salad (I have never tried them this way) or boil them in water for 3 to 4 hours depending on the size of the beets. Unless you want to alter their natural taste and come up with a new and creative way of eating them of course. Adding a light dressing (lemon juice, a few grains of salt and a tiny bit of olive oil) helps bring out their unique flavor even more when eaten as a salad. And I am not even going to talk about their gorgeous color!!
There are numerous benefits known to beets which you can read about here. But what I personal love about them, other than their taste is the fact that they are a natural laxative that will get your bowels moving in a few hours.
My secret is that I used to eat a lot of beets for a few months and it
helped me shed a LOT of weight (25 pounds)!!
Watch a quick clip of how I cook and present the beets!For my salad dressing, I use a splash of lemon juice, a pinch of salt, I drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and sometimes a teaspoon of mustard (omit the salt if you use mustard) and voila!! DELICIOUS!
I always feel refreshed and cleansed after eating beets, especially if I have a big plate of this purple magic food =)
See you next time,
I love you guys to beets =)
