Did you know that a diet low on carbohydrates, especially from reds & leafy greens, goes against your energy and cardiovascular health?
Reds, like red beets, are crucial in helping you stay energized. Some reds are higher in natural nitrates and antioxidants than others, making them nutritionally unique and valuable to support nitric oxide and enhance your daily stamina.
However, red beets alone might not be the best option to support your energy. You need more than beets to enhance your vitality. Yet, if you combine different reds, like beets, with red spinach and other antioxidants, that is when your body benefits the most.
So whether you want to get your morning off to a positive, healthy start or need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, reds can help boost your energy and have you dancing through the day in no time.
Since beets are easy to work with in the kitchen, we will share some of the easiest ways to incorporate them into your meals and combine them with other reds like red spinach and Aronia to help you benefit from their nutritional value.
