I love beetroot!  However, until a little while back when a friend gave me roasted beetroot – so delicious by the way – I’d only ever had it lightly pickled.  (In fact during my second pregnancy I ate it by the jar – and no, he wasn’t purple when born, lol!)  I’ve since learned it comes in a golden-yellow hue and striped, as well as the normal beetroot color.  We have a delish recipe at the end of the post.

Aarika at JustBeetIt.com has some super recipe ideas as well as smoothie recipes. She asks …

Are beets part of your diet? The beetroot is a powerhouse of nutrition. High in betalain, minerals such as potassium and magnesium, and Vitamins C & K (improving immunity and promoting healthy blood cells), beets are a nutritious addition to your diet. Berries are also high in antioxidants and Vitamin C, so this smoothie truly offers a fabulous immunity boost. Enjoy!
