Healthy In a HeartBEET

When It Comes to Your Health, Don’t Skip a BEET

At Elephant Plate, we’re big fans of beets. They may not be the most elegant vegetable in the produce aisle, but when it comes to nutrients, they really deliver. At only 58 calories, one cup of beets has about 2 grams of protein, almost 4 grams of fiber, 11% of your potassium daily value, and a whopping 37% of your daily value of folate! They’re loaded with other vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that make them one of our favorite superfoods.

Beauty and the BEET

Because they’re their full of folate, Vitamin C, nourishing antioxidants and have a high-water content, eating beets can help brighten your skin, hydrate your body, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. With its ruby-red color, ElephantPlate’s Beautifying Beetroot Pilaf is a beautiful way to beautify your skin. The beets in this mouth watering dish get a nutrient and protein boost from chickpeas and a dose of healthy fat from extra virgin olive oil.

Keep a Steady BEET

We’re talking about staying regular, and with their high fiber content, beets can help in that department. High fiber diets are recommended for the prevention of colon cancer and digestive problems such as inflammatory bowel disease, constipation and diverticulitis—making your stomach, and ultimately you, much happier! Try Elephant Plate’s Beetroot Chickpea Medley as a delicious way to keep your colon healthy.

Healthy in a HeartBEET

With their hearty mix of Folate, Potassium and nitrates, eating beets are an excellent part of a heart-healthy diet. According to The American Heart Association, foods rich in potassium help manage high blood pressure by decreasing the tension in blood vessels. High levels of homocysteine in the blood may increase your risk of heart disease, and Folate works to control these levels. Nitrates dilate arteries and veins, relieving stress on your heart by improving blood flow to the heart muscle.
