Cooking up roasted beets


I was excited to receive these beets in my weekly @misfitsmarket box. I have never cooked beets, but love roasted veggies so decided to simply roast them. Then with inspiration from @inagarten, I tossed them with a little orange juice, apple cider vinegar, grated ginger, and orange zest. They were delicious by themselves, but also yummy tossed in a kale salad.

Beets have many health benefits which include:


1. High in Antioxidants

2. Relieve Inflammation

3. Promote Heart Health

4. Aid in Detoxification

5. Boost Brain Function

6. Support Digestive Health

7. Enhance Athletic Performance

8. Increase Weight Loss - high in fiber and low in calories
