New Year Cleanse: Day 21 — Big, Bold Beets! - The North County Moms

Beetroot, or more commonly “beets”, are big and bold and RED! Their color is so intense that beet juice is an effective natural food coloring! If you’ve ever sliced a beet you’re aware of the intensity of its color that stains fingers, nails, and hand-wiped aprons!


Maria’s Cleanse Notes

What a great way to wrap up this year’s January cleanse as we are about to move into the month of love. The color alone makes me think of Cupid, and the almost heart-shaped root reminds me of February hearts. Beets are great in salads, whether raw or cooked, and served cold.

Beetroot is considered a superfood because it’s packed with good-for-you nutrients. Check out the particulars from Francesca, in her take below!

Day 20 2024 – Spinach

Francesca’s Take

Beets are one of my favorite root vegetables. They are not only delicious, but oh-so-good for you! They provide a good amount of dietary fiber and are packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and folate.
Some studies suggest that beets may also have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Also research shows that their nitrate content may be cardio protective. Overall, incorporating beets into your diet can be a great way to promote overall health and well-being.
