Isn’t it funny or weird the color of blood and beets has the color red in common? Interesting, isn’t it? Let’s have some Hearty Home Made Beet Soup today!
Well, sometimes life show us ways to enjoy the delicious vegetables in our daily lives. My grandmother used to always tell us about the benefits of the fruits and vegetables but never did I realize that these benefits would mean something in my life to the extent of life and death. I learned that beets enriched our lives in many ways. Little did I know that it would enrich mine more than I could imagined. I found myself in need of blood as I was loosing it more than building it as necessary. I was not taking in enough vitamin c in my diet to rebuild the hemoglobin in the blood.
Based on the fact that I needed to build my blood rapidly besides the intake of blood from the blood bank, I needed to seek natural resources by including more vegetables and fruits in my daily menu. I had previously mentioned that Beets is rich in iron, fiber, folate , vitamin c and potassium. It is good to know that beets is also loaded with disease fighting phytonutrients and also helps to detoxify and helps the body to revitalize and work better which means you are not tired and sleepy most of the time but energized and ready to go.
