Food of the week - BEETROOT

  • Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value; especially the greens, which are rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. Not only is beetroot great for boosting stamina and making muscles work harder; beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and potassium.

  • Beetroot are a low-calorie vegetable, with 53 calories per 1-cup of sliced beets.

  • Beetroot makes a healthy addition to your diet because they satisfy your hunger while helping you stay within your calorie limits.

  • Beetroot can be roasted whole; eaten in salads, as a side, blended into a soup or as a juice (like the Olympians do!).
