NUTRIENTS IN THIS ROASTED BEET & CARROT KALE SALAD

  • Kale – This green, leafy vegetable is all the rage these days and reasonably so. It’s high in vitamins A, C, and K, and is also a good source of fiber and potassium.

  • Beets – This vegetable is seriously underestimated, but can be a tasty and nutritious addition to any meal, AND they’re especially great in salads. Half a cup of cooked beets contain only 40 calories and are a good source of fibre. They’re also rich in folate, which is necessary for healthy red blood cells and for synthesizing and repairing DNA. Additionally, it can help decrease the risk of some cancers. Furthermore, they’re a source of potassium, which is good for overall heart health and may help reduce blood pressure. Their pretty jewel-coloured red pigment, known as betalains have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. See, who ever said beets were boring?!
