During the winter season wa always eat a lot of root fruits and other winter crops. Beets are one of my favorites, and we have them many times a week! Not only are beets packed with vitamins and minerals, they are also known for supporting your heart health.
Beets are also very good for athletes, because of the dietary nitrats. Nitrates appear to affect physical performance by improving the efficiency of mitochondria, which are responsible for producing energy in your cells, and therefore benefits the physical performance! and as you know, I’m married to an Ultra Cyclist, so we do love beets! you can read more about the benefit of beets here
For this fast and easy dish I used
1 beet – fist size
2 cups of kale (without the stem)
1 cup of cabbage
1/2 a fennel
1/2 cup of cashews
Salt and pepper to your taste
1 tbsp of coconut oil
Cut everything anyway you like.
Heat the coconut oil in the skillet, add the beets and let them cook for 10 minutes. Put aside while preparing the rest.
Stir fry the rest of the ingredients for about 10 minutes.
Add the beets, mix and serve.
Add any meet you would like – we had chicken breast with this.
