What Are The Health Benefits Of Beets?
Beets are very healthy for you. They are full of antioxidants and help reduce the risk of cancer, alleviate indigestion, reduce inflammation and prevents anemia.
I got these delicious beets from a local farm on our way home from spending the day in St. Augustine. The farm had so many fresh vegetables and berries. I was overjoyed. I bought different kinds of cabbages, turnips, greens of all sorts kale, mustards, collards, new potatoes, strawberries, and beets!
I love eating from farm to table. The food is so much better! One of the best things I love about Florida so far is the longer growing season. My neighbors are also very kind and I get surprises from their gardens, from oranges, grapefruits, lemons during the winter and now I’m getting string beans and blueberries.
I have started a garden and so excited to see what will do well here. So far I believe I water my plants too much because some of my vincas died. In my vegetable garden, so far I planted, tomatoes, okra, sweet potatoes, zucchini, potato, field peas. For fruit trees, I planted figs, persimmons, olives, blueberries and lots of herbs.
If you haven’t tried beet tops, you should the next time you purchase a bunch of beets. Cook it like you would kale, it’s not only delicious but it’s very nutritious! I love to cook it with onion, garlic, tomato, herbs, and salt.
