Beets (aka beetroot) are classified as a “starchy carb.” But even though they are a little higher in carbs than other non starchy vegetables, they are not so high that they need to be omitted from a low carb diet.
Beets also offer high amounts of vitamins, flavonoids and phytochemicals that are extremely beneficial to your health. You only have to look at their vibrant color to see they offer elements that many other foods don't. Plus that lovely color adds more depth to any meal.
Beets have a wonderful naturally sweet flavor and can be used raw, steamed, boiled or roasted. Here we have a super simple salad made with raw grated beets.
