Beets and lentils for better health

Whole beets

Two delicious and amazing side dishes that can help us stay healthy. If you cook often you know we are always looking for new and flavorful side dishes.



Beets are rich in beta-carotene, carotenoids, and flavonoids. These powerful antioxidants give beets that beautiful color. All foods that are rich in antioxidants are effective at cleansing your liver.

Love this vegetable. It has a beautiful color, and it is delicious served warm or cold. Great addition to salads and meals more so if grilled.



Lentils are great to lower cholesterol. Diets high in lentils prevent hypertension and tend to produce more favorable cholesterol levels than diets lower in lentils.

Cook lentils in water and salt to taste. Bring to boil and simmer until almost soft to chew. Serve it as a side dish, add it to rice, or any salad.
