Totally Unbeetable

Often people ask me how I stay so positive and UPBEET... And though there's quite a lot that goes into that answer, I can say with great confidence that incorporating nutrient-dense foods in my diet that are delectable and fun (and easy) to prepare is KEY! You could say... it's at the ROOT of a happy body and happy mind. Today I'm droppin' some sick beets - this recipe is one of my absolute favorite treats and it's incredibly healthy. I'm talkin' marinated beets! (If you couldn't pick up on that...)


This beautiful and bright red root packs a tremendous nutritional punch! Beets are rich in fiber and antioxidants, and they are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals such as folate (B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. They are also high in inorganic nitrates, which are associated with reduced blood pressure and a reduced risk of heart disease - AND can generally enhance physical performance by improving oxygen use and increasing stamina! See, I told you they were unBEETable ;)



For this recipe, you'll need...

3 large beets (Any variety will do! I used candy cane beets from a local farmer's market)

For the Marinade: 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp Honey

3 Garlic Cloves minced

1 tsp Ground Ginger

Splash of coconut aminos

Salt, to taste


Directions:

Rinse the beets and trim the ends.

Boil until fork-tender (between 30 and 60 mins depending on the size of your beets).

Remove from boiling water and allow them to cool.

Rinse under cold water and the skin should easily peel off.

(Option) Slice or cube the beets, and toss in a container with your marinade. Seal and store in the refrigerator overnight for best taste!


Serving suggestion:

I absolutely love diggin' into these as a delicious and refreshing healthy snack, but they go wonderfully in a salad with avocado and pistachios. I paired mine with salmon pan-fried in coconut oil.
