Posted by on Saturday, 22 October, 2011

Beets are not my favorite veggies. At all. Not even close. Buuuut, if I juice ’em then they’re not so bad. And beets are actually very healthy for you. Beets are loaded with Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C. Beets are also a great source of calcium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus and iron.
