Sauteed Green Beets 

The green leaves of the beets are delicious, and they have a high content of nutrients for our health in general. I have been thrown them away for a long time, without realizing that I have been making a mistake,.but nowadays, knowing the impact and what they aport to us, I sautee, cook in my stews, or use them raw into my salad, or smoothies.

They are part of the same family as the Swiss Chard, and the taste is similar. 

When you are going to buy the beets, you also should choose the quality of the leaves, be sure that they are fresh undamaged. and are being organic.

Health benefits of consuming them:

Minerals: Magnesium, copper, calcium, iron, zinc, lutein, sodium, phosphorus, manganese, and potassium.

Vitamins: K, A, B6, B1, B2, B3, B5, C, and folate.

Betalains and betaine that help reduce inflammation and have anti-cancer effects.
Flavonoids: zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, lutein.
