Are Beets Healthy For You?
You’d better believe it! Beets are low in calories and high in fiber, vitamins and minerals. On top of that some studies have shown beets to help support brain health, improve digestive health, help fight inflammation, help lower blood pressure, and improve athletic performance (beets improve the efficiency of mitochondria which produce energy in your cells).
So there’s a lot of good reasons to incorporate beets into your diet!
I love beets and grow lots of them every spring and fall. Below are some beets from my garden. So pretty!
Do I Have to Use a Spiralizer?
No. Beet noodles look especially pretty but you don’t have to use a spiralizer. Instead you can slice the beets into think strips or however you prefer. Just adjust roasting time according to the thickness of the beets.
Do I Have to Roast the Beets?
No. If you prefer to enjoy the beets as a crunchy fresh salad (which I also love), simply toss the beet noodles with the vinaigrette and enjoy. For salads I prefer to chop up the beet noodles a bit so you don’t get as long of strands, but that’s just personal preference.
Which Spiralizer Do You Recommend?
There are quite a few spiralizers on the market to choose from and it can be difficult to figure out which ones are best. We use and recommend the Paderno World Spiralizer (they make several different models). It was also ranked the top choice by America’s Test Kitchen.
