The sweet red beet
Though plain on the outside, beets hide a crimson inside that makes them one of nature's sweetest and most beneficial root vegetables.
Studies have linked beets to lower blood pressure, reduced inflammation and even a boost in stamina. Owing to their high concentration of sugars (20-30% of the world’s sugar comes from the sugar beet), they also make a great addition to salads, stir fries and smoothies.
