First thing I started doing with them is blending them into my smoothies!

Caroline likes them because they make her smoothie red and if I add strawberries from our garden it makes it a little brown, so she thinks its chocolate!  Lol whatever works!! 🙂

All you do is peal the beets and chop them up into cubes or toss them in if you have a Vitamix. Be careful they are messy and will get red juice everywhere.

I normally cut them on a cutting board with a napkin under them. I have found that works best for me.

Another great way to eat them is to steam or bake them!
Peal and cut into 1 inch slices. I like to add the juice from 3 oranges 1 teaspoon {depending on sweetness} of Xylitol or Brown Sugar. A little EVOO, salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

For salads use the tops of the beets

and a head of romaine  Red onions, and a 1/2 cup of sliced toasted almonds. Shred the beats and carrots and use to top the salad. For the dressing take the juice of 3 oranges, zest 1 teaspoon orange, 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Xylitol , 1 tablespoon of EVOO mix and enjoy.

You can dehydrate them and make them into chips.

Simply add some EVOO and a little bit of Himalayan Salt or favorite seasoning and put in dehydrator or oven!!

There are several ways to make them but this is what I have found to be the easiest and yummiest for us! Plus you can’t BEET all the benefits!!

    Beetroot can be peeled, steamed, and then eaten warm with butter as a delicacy; cooked, pickled, and then eaten cold as a condiment; or peeled, shredded raw, and then eaten as a salad. Pickled beets are a traditional food of the American South. It is also common in Australia and New Zealand for pickled beetroot to be served on a hamburger.^*.*
