Beets are an amazing food to incorporate into your diet — they're heart healthy, and rich in antioxidants.
As you may recall from my earlier post on the Heart Healthy Smoothie, beets are a natural source of nitrates, which the body then converts to nitric oxide (NO), which is needed to dilate the coronary arteries that enable blood flow to the heart.
So get those beets into your rotation! I think they're especially good roasted, and then paired with a bitter green such as arugula.
Here's a handy prep-ahead tip: roast and peel the beets earlier in the week, and the salad comes together in a snap on busy weeknights.I also recommend rinsing and spinning the greens — and making the dressing — over the weekend, to make this salad even easier to prepare during the week.
