Golden beets are a tasty, bright, addition to any meal and bring some major nutritional benefits along with them. They are slightly sweeter than red beets with a mellower flavor – not as much of an earthy bite. If you haven’t had them before, it’s definitely worth trying these sunny root vegetables for their delicious taste and satiating texture. They carry various spices well and work in a large variety of recipes, from juices, to stews, to salads.
Golden beets provide blood nourishing iron and Vitamin C, along with phytonutrients like lycopene, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene.
They’ve got some powerful antioxidant properties, helping to slow the process of aging and reduce the effects of stress, pollution, and toxins. These sweet yellow beets are also a rich source of potassium, making them a super heart friendly food and a nice source of electrolytes. Another bonus, they encourage blood purification and liver detoxification, so they are a stellar addition to any cleansing program.
