18 Aug Tip 9- Just Beet It
I vowed to never eat them after I moved out of my parents’ home. But getting diagnosed with high cholesterol has brought me back to this purple veggie. Studies show that eating beets can lower cholesterol, decrease inflammation, prevent birth defects and fight cancer.
Today’s tip: Beets are available now at Farmer’s markets. Peel beets after cooking, otherwise your kitchen will look like a crime scene. Also, don’t cook too long; beets’ anti-cancer activity is diminished by heat.
Extra tip: Don’t be alarmed if your urine (or other things) turns a bit purple after eating beets.
