AND… Swiss chard is in the same family as beets so you can add some variety with the same nutrients values.
Super easy to prepare:
- Marinate with oil and lemon juice
- Or, grate raw
My favorite is to steam them, cut up and add to a salad. Simple and delicious. So full of flavor all by themselves.
Beware, harmless and expected, it sometimes takes you back when you see red urine or stool, a common side-effect of eating beets. No worries and no harm done!
