Hello and welcome back to #MondayMeals! This week we are featuring a simple recipe that can be made with fresh and healthy local ingredients. Lemon-Herb Roasted Beets are a nutritious addition to any meal, and the zesty flavoring will leave them hard to... beet.
Beets are filled with vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds that are essential to a healthy diet. Beets are low in calories, help to maintain a healthy blood pressure, and can improve digestive health. They may also improve brain health and help reduce the risk of cancer.
Beets are also available locally! Eating local foods is beneficial to our bodies, minds, environment, and local economy.
Did you know that foods produced locally are more nutritious? This is because food contains the most nutrients around the time it is harvested. The longer food spends traveling, the less nutrition it contains. Less time traveling also means less exposure to harmful chemicals and less production of greenhouse gasses. What a tasteful way to decrease our carbon footprint!
