When buying Beets…………….

Look for smooth, hard, round beets. The surface should be unbruised and free of cuts. Avoid beets with soft, moist spots or shriveled, flabby skin. The taproot, which extends from the bulbous part of the beet, should be slender.

Healthy Christmas Holiday Recipes
It’s the best time of year, and we’re here to help your celebrate with all of our healthy Christmas recipes. From prime rib to scalloped potatoes, we have a plethora of recipes to make sure you have a delicious holiday season!

Fresh Ham with Red Pepper Glaze
For this fresh roast ham recipe, look for meat that hasn’t been cured or smoked. Many markets stock fresh hams, but you may need to special-order one to be sure. Ask your butcher to remove the skin and leave a layer of fat to self-baste the ham as it roasts…………………..

Easy Stuffed Mushrooms
This healthy stuffed mushroom appetizer is a nice balance of soft mushrooms, creamy filling and crunchy topping. This combination tastes downright decadent, but it’s actually good for you. Be sure to get all of the moisture out of the chopped mushrooms before moving on to the next step; if not, the filling will be soggy and make the mushroom caps watery………………

Roasted Beet Salad
Walnuts, red onion and dill make this roasted beet salad recipe a fantastic accompaniment to chicken or topping for hummus. If you can’t find beets with greens attached, use 1 pound of beets and 8 ounces of chard leaves……………………

Buying Beets……………………..

Go for smaller beets as they are typically more tender than the larger variety. The greens should be bright, but cut them soon after buying so that they don’t extract moisture from the bulb. Then to store them, refrigerate beets in plastic for up to three weeks.

Storing Vegetables……………..

If you’ve purchased a vegetable with a leafy top, such as a beet greens or carrots, remove the green top before you store it in the fridge. The leafy tops will leach moisture from the root or bulb and shorten the vegetable’s shelf life.

It’s Nuts I tell you……….BEET POWDER

This week from the nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) its BEET POWDER. Dehydrated Beets that are ground into a powder. They retain all the protective nutrients of ripe beets, this powder is naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and nitrate plus all the health benefits of Beets. The Beet Powder can be used in gravies, sauces, soups, or to provide color in any recipe.

Most items can be purchased in small amounts or in bulk. Plus there’s FREE shipping on orders over $59, see for details! Now more on the BEET POWDER. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://nuts.com/

BEET POWDER
Red beet powder can be used in gravies, sauces, soups, or to provide color in any recipe. These beets are dehydrated and then ground into a powder. Retaining all the protective nutrients of ripe beets, this powder is naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and nitrate. There are no additives.

Taste and Uses of Beet Powder
Beet powder has a slightly sweet, earthy taste that can add a boost of nutrients to your recipes. Use a few teaspoons of the powder in sauces and salad dressings – one teaspoon of the powder is equivalent to one beet. Beet powder can also be used as an alternative food coloring in cakes and cupcakes to make them a bright red velvet color. Using cocoa in cake recipes will help subdue the beet’s natural earthy flavor.

3 Surprising Health Benefits of Beet Powder
Our beet powder is loaded with the same potent vitamins, minerals, and nutrients as the red beets it comes from. Beetroot powder is rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, folate and manganese, along with other nutrients. Perhaps most remarkably, beets are naturally rich in nitrate, compounds that can improve blood flow and lower blood pressure, leading to notable health benefits.

1) Lowers Blood Pressure: Beet powder is a naturally rich source of nitrates, which the body converts into nitric oxide, a compound that relaxes and widens blood vessels to make it easier for the heart to pump blood. A 2013 study published in the journal Hypertension found that drinking beet root juice lowered systolic blood pressure (BP) in patients for 24 hours after consuming the juice. This BP-lowering effect was not observed in the control group which did not drink the juice.

2) Increases Brain Blood Flow: Another advantage of this nitrate-rich food is that it may be beneficial in treating degenerative diseases related to aging. Findings from a 2010 study published in the journal Nitric Oxide demonstrated that consuming a high nitrate diet increased blood flow to the frontal lobe in older adults. The frontal lobe is important for cognitive function, and is usually at risk in elderly patients who are susceptible to cognitive decline. This data suggests that consuming nitrate-rich foods may improve blood flow to areas of the brain that need it most.

3) Improve Exercise Endurance: Beet powder can help improve stamina so that you can power through your workouts for longer. A 2009 study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that drinking beetroot juice gave participants the stamina to exercise up to 16% longer than when they were given a placebo. This endurance-boosting effect may be attributed to nitrate’s ability to regulate oxygen uptake so that exercise feels less exhausting. The participants who consumed beetroot juice also had lower resting blood pressure.

Ingredients
Beets Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.
