The beautiful color of beetroot already has the message that you’re eating something healthy. It is rich in antioxidants – they say, the more colorful a food naturally is, the more antioxidants it contains. But besides this, it is full of minerals and fibers. You can have its juice pressed, or add to your salad, grated, but you can cook it, as well, as most of the nutrients will stay inside. 100 grams (3.5 ounces) serving of beetroots contains only 40 kilocalories.
