It is important to have a healthy amount of body fat for regulating body temperature, balancing hormones, storing vitamins, and for good overall health. Body fat starts to be not as great when we have too much of it! Too much fat can lead to inflammation in the body and increase your risk for different diseases.

Beets are an absolute super food! Originally cultivated for it leaves in the Middle East, this plant was first grown for its root by the Romans. As early as the Middle Ages beets were used for their medicinal properties and used to treat different illnesses such as fever and constipation. Nowadays we know why this inconspicuous root vegetable was so effective. It is packed with nutrients including folic acid, vitamin C, betanin and B vitamins.
Not only are beets great for your health but they are also super versatile in the kitchen. You can eat them raw, roasted, or pickled!
