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

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