my dinner plate

with a new starchy veggie alot of people aren't aware of,

and/or don't know how to prepare,

especially as part of a dinner meal.

It's BEETS!

Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.

Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance.

Although an earthy flavor, that hint of sweeteness cateogirzes these guys more towards a "loose" carb count versus a non-starchy veggies. Aim for about 1 cup as part of a balanced meal on the BWN Method.
