Whole Foods Wednesday – Beets

Beets, beets, delicious fruits… oh wait, wrong jingle! And beets aren’t a fruit – but they ARE colorful little powerhouses of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals!

As a very good source of the antioxidant manganese and a good source of the antioxidant vitamin C, the unique phytonutrients in beets provide antioxidant support in a different way than other antioxidant-rich vegetables. These little beauties are also an excellent source of folate and a very good source of manganese, potassium and copper. They are a good source of dietary fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin C, iron and vitamin B6.

I love beets – I get this love from my mama!

Do you like beets?
