A boost to your cardio health
Have you heard about beet's cardiovascular benefits? Well, some studies claim that eating beetroot can help reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. Not only this, beet promotes a healthy complexion and is a tonic for your hair. So does this give you enough reasons to bring beet home?

Diabetics may find beet as a superfood, as it contains alpha-lipoic acid, an antioxidant that may help reduce blood glucose, prevent oxidative stress, and improve insulin sensitivity in diabetics. Alpha-lipoic can further help reduce the risk of peripheral neuropathy, which affects many diabetics.

Did you know beetroot is packed with dietary fiber, which makes it a perfect digestion aid that promotes bowel movement and prevents constipation?

Inflammation
You might be surprised to know that this crimson-colored veggie can be a sleep inducer and help you get a good night's sleep. Beet contains a nutrient, known as choline, which works as a learning and memory aid and promotes muscle movement. Additionally, the nutrient choline aids in the maintenance of cellular membrane structure, helping in the absorption of fat while lowering the risk of inflammation.





Ingredients
2 beetroots
2 carrots
1 small ginger piece
1 tbsp- oil
2 tbsp- water
black salt, black pepper or green chilly for a spicy chutney
powdered roasted fenugreek seeds (methi powder)
apple cider vinegar-1 tbsp (optional - you may add imli/tamarind instead or even amla/gooseberry)
I did not want to add any sweet ingredient since beets and carrots are too sweet these days.
If you wish, you may want to add dates to raise the sweet level of your beet chutney.
