Baby beet greens are a common ingredient in field green salads. But have you ever eaten beet greens from mature beet plants? I must admit that until this weekend, I had not! What a shame — all tho…

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Beet greens, who knew? I've always eaten beets in borscht or beet soup hot and cold – delish!  Recently I sarted eating more raw foods and a new friend told me about beet greens and the red stems. So I tried then and found a new food love. Now when I shop I buy the organic beets with the greens. I love eating them raw, using them as a wrap for side dishes I make. And the beets and stems are great steamed in a little filtered water. When cool, I drink the beet juice and nourish my body at the same time.

Try the beets greens raw or steamed. They're loaded with powerful nutrients and taste yummy. You won't know until you try them how really good they are. Try the recipes in this article. They sound good.
