Getting in Shape

tell me about beets

So I just starting getting into beets and had seen they are very good for you and even considered a super food.  So howcome when I went to the grocery store to buy them it was basically just sugar and some carbs, no vitamins or anything.  I am assuming that is because it was in a jar and I need to be buying them fresh?  Please help I would love to eat them more often if they are that good!  Thanks!

  • It might just be that the item you were looking at didn't list all the nutritional value.  According to this (click) they're a good source of potassium among other things.  They're also low in calories and really tasty, which is always a good thing.

  • uh.. yeah.. well.. you're buying in a jar, so check the ingredients. If there is anything other than water and beets, don't bother. 
    But most labels don't show ALL the nutrients/minerals (because most people don't care.. and the people that do will google it)

  • Love beets. I juice them in my breakfast drink. You can't have canned beets. There is a lot of sugar in them, just like carrots, but it's a natural detoxifier. Just take whole beets, boil or roast them and remove skin. No need for canned, super easy. I will say, you can overdose on them. I was juicing a whole beet a day and started to feel feverish from it. I started doing research and if you eat too much, you body can't break in down fast enough and you'll get sick from it. Good luck! And yes...if you have to many, it will make your pee red.
