Roasted Beets!

After all the yummy baked goods I’ve been indulging in the last few days, I felt a very strong craving for a big salad.  Although I had trouble choosing the salad greens I wanted to use, I knew one thing for certain, I wanted fresh beets! But how do you prepare fresh beets? I turned to my trusty Instagram community for their insight. Roasting was a popular suggestion along with grating them raw.

Did you know that due to their health benefits, beets are one of the best vegetables one could eat? Yet not many incorporate them into their diet.  If your dislike of beets comes from only knowing the canned version, give some fresh beets a try. Fresh beets are absolutely delicious and can be prepared a number of ways. Roasting and tossed into a salad is just one of those ways! 🙂
