Beetroot




Beetroot is incredibly nourishing.


💥Rich in nitrates, can help to reduce risk of heart disease: dietary nitrates convert to nitric oxide, a molecule that helps dilate blood vessels and lower blood pressure.


💥Nitrates help improve use of oxygen and reduce time to exhaustion when exercising, which is why lots of athletes drink beetroot juice!


💥Beetroot is also a rich source of glutamine and fibre, both essential for digestive health


Some easy ways to eat include beetroot into your diet:

👉Chop into cubes, roast in extra virgin olive oil, and add to salads

👉Grate fresh and add to a coleslaw (see winter salad on previous post)

👉Pickled, eaten with mackerel or hummus for lunch

👉Juice with ginger and pomegranate

👉Winter soup (recipe on website)


👉 Or a tarte tatin - @rivercottagehq@hughfearnleywhittingstall inspiration. Finished off with roasted pecans and walnuts, feta and parsley. Serve with a simple green salad.
