Cold weather calls for roasted carbs like beetroot, yam, carrots etc. doesn’t it. But why are we drawn to these when the temperature drops? This is because they literally help us fight the cold. Root vegetables require a lot of energy during the process of digestion and this, in turn, produces more heat in the body, helping to warm and sustain us.
Low cost and incredibly nourishing they are all rich in many valuable vitamins and minerals. For instance, beetroot has good levels of magnesium and calcium but also so much else.
It is loaded with betaine which helps environmental stress and helps alleviate inflammation. Furthermore, on this point it is rich in purple anthocyanins, further helping inflammation issues.
Then the list of benefits continues, it’s important for heart health in general, blood pressure, for the brain and the liver. And perhaps surprisingly it’s helpful for weight regulation and it has few calories.
