Eat beets! This little red root is full of folate, a key nutrient for preventing heart disease. Beets are very easy to prepare. Simply wash, peel and grate for a crunchy salad base. (Protect countertops when preparing raw beets; the juice can stain.)
Not into raw beets? No problem. Wash the beets, then boil, steam or roast them with the skin on to preserve flavor and color. The skin slips off easily once cooked. Then add a little olive oil, cracked pepper and Feta cheese and enjoy.
