Beets tend to get a bad rap, but are one of my favorite vegetables.
Whether roasted whole or shaved, raw on atop a salad, they lend a natural sweetness that complements many meals.
However, taste is not the only reason to go “beet crazy”! According to studies printed in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension, drinking one cup of beetroot juice per day lowers blood pressure! Within one hour of drinking, beetroot juice boosts our internal production of nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels, thus lowering blood pressure.
The Oats Café serves fresh vegetable juices every day.
So stop by and get your juice fix before someone “beets you to it”!
