Try beats for a great tasting food who’s health benefits have been well documented. I enjoyed this salad because it tasted great but also left me feeling full which usually doesn’t happen when I eat salads.
Beets are rich in soluble fiber which slows down digestion and makes you feel full longer and reduces LDL (bad) cholesterol. They are also rich in folate a B vitamin that may help prevent birth defects and also against heart disease and cancer.
4 beets red or golden
Spinach or any other greens of your choice
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Slice beets, spread on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake for about an hour depending on thickness. Toss the spinach or other greens with the balsamic vinegar and place on a plate. Let beets cool and remove the skin. I prefer to remove the skin after baking its easier I think. Place beets on greens top the beets with a spoonful of goat cheese.
