Manifest your inner child and get excited about the rich pigment of beets! And better yet, turn your tongue red while knowing you're reaping heaps of health benefits that beets offer us.
Have you ever thought about why beets have that rich magenta color to them? It's because they contain betalains, a natural plant pigment that's fun and contains health benefits such as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties!
Beets also contain fiber, nitrates, and vitamins / minerals such as B-vitamin, folate, potassium, magnesium, and Vitamin C.
Tip: Place a 1-cup reVessel container filled with dressing in an 8-cup filled with salad. Snap the leakproof lid on and enjoy later!
