Our life is worthy celebrating. Let’s celebrate it with a BEET today!

Beets are a very interesting root. Wide-spread, very inexpensive when purchased at the market or at the store. We can eat it. We can make facial masks with it. We can truly be blessed with the benefits that don’t cost a tone of money, yet feel and look like a millionaire! Do you want it for you? Then eat the BEETS!

With regular consumption of beets, we invite a million of benefits into our body and out life. Rich in fiber, phytonutrients, beetroot provides a very-needed detoxification for our internal system. I am excited about this benefit alone! Those “magic” Betalin pigments in beets support this body’s important function.

Millions are obsessed with younger skin, younger body, younger everything, but the only thing they are looking for is the end result. The road to a more vibrant body and soul is through our stomach indeed. What we eat is what we look and feel like. Make it a daily habit – whatever you put into your mouth – and eventually, you will look and feel like the food that has been feeding your body. The mood and attitude towards life will follow the tracks of the body and even precede the final outcome.

Let’s get excited about what gives us more energy, more desire to move and do, more life. Let’s invite the nutrition that feeds every cell and generates a giving, loving energy towards our organs within our bodies. We need love every day to live a long, happy life.

Let the giving begin with us!

    AM COFFEE – Sign In by Saying HELLO to Everyone!

    I grew up eating BEETS. Beets were a frequent meal in our house, summer or winter! Beetroot can be stored for a long time. Usually, we’d have a few piles of beets stored for the winter feast. We made salads with beets. We cooked soups with beats. We added beets to many recipes my mom made from scratch. That was a plenty-of-beets life for me!

    I would like to get everybody excited about the benefits of beets and what this simple root could do to bring more vitality and invite more life into your daily activities.

    So happy to see you today here! Come over when you can. AM Coffee is for early birds and not-so, too! It is open all-day-long, as we do have different schedules we live with.

    Stay with us every morning, win prizes, but mostly, make awesome friends!

        Wendi,
        Whatever you do before you give in to craziness, take a precious 5 Moments, minutes, seconds for yourself. Even counting to 5 and succumbing to that moment allows to lower blood pressure and get your focus.

      Hello, I used to hate beets, but I always loved Pickled eggs, so one day about 4 years ago I decided to try a beet, and to my surprise I loved them too

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Hello Mary!
        This experiment with new foods does show that our TASTEBUDS do change.
        We just need to give them a CHANCE to try different foods and tastes.
        I have had the same situation with AVOCADOS! I really disliked them all my life. But one day, my friends asked to try Guacamole anyway. I took one spoon – I got hooked on the fresh guacamole! I really do know the difference between FRESH AND THAT WHICH IS NOT!

    Beets & Blood Pressure

    Drinking beet juice may help to lower blood pressure in a matter of hours. One study found that drinking one glass of beet juice lowered systolic blood pressure by an average of 4-5 points.

    The benefit likely comes from the naturally occurring nitrates in beets, which are converted into nitric oxide in your body. Nitric oxide, in turn, helps to relax and dilate your blood vessels, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure.

    Beets And Inflammation

    Inflammation is the Root to many diseases. Modern diet is a huge contributor to the internal inflammation in our bodies.

    Beets are a unique source of betaine, a nutrient that helps protects cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress. It’s also known to help fight inflammation, protect internal organs, improve vascular risk factors, enhance performance, and likely help prevent numerous chronic diseases.

      my man friend has DVT I wonder if this would help with that

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        For those who don’t know what DVT is, it is a very serious condition of the veins.
        Every year, as many as 900,000 people in the United States are affected by deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE), and about 100,000 die. Having DVT or PE blood clots can be frightening.

        DVT and PE blood clots are serious but treatable conditions. Arm yourself with the right information to treat and prevent blood clots. Talk to your doctor to make any decision about it.

    Beets And Your Stamine, i.e., Boost in Your Exercise Capacity

    What you may not know can interfere with your plans, especially when you want to exercise more and get more benefits from it.

    If you need a boost to make it through your next workout, beet juice may again prove valuable. Those who drank beet juice prior to exercise were able to exercise for up to 16 percent longer. It may seem that 16% is not a big number. But when it comes to exercising, even the increase in 2,3,4 percent is considered big enough to make a difference in performance.

    The benefit is thought to also be related to nitrates turning into nitric oxide, which may reduce the oxygen cost of low-intensity exercise as well as enhance tolerance to high-intensity exercise. You may be able to go farther and longer when it comes to aerobic exertion.

    Beets Are Rich In Fiber + Phytonutrients

    Eating beets is like partaking in the eternal magic of Mother Nature. So many nutrients packed into this bright purlish-red root!

    Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas).

    Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.

    The benefits are many. I just would like to point out to some prominent ones. But there are so many hiding inside that root that even scientists have not identified yet!

    • mary taylor says:

      I absolutely love eating beets, but they are in pickled eggs, wonder if they have the same effect then

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Mary,
        There’s no reason why not!
        Pickled beets have even more value than raw! YES, that is the “magic” of pickling or FERMENTATION!
        I WILL DIRECT YOU TO A SERIOUS OF ARTICLES ABOUT FERMENTED FOODS to truly showcase what ABUNDANCE of health they are contributing to our GUT FLORA.
        And Gut Flora = Stronger Immune System. Immune system makes our health, in a way. Without good gut bacteria, we will be dead, literally.

    Beets And Their Anti-Cancerous Properties

    The powerful phytonutrients that give beets their deep crimson color may help to ward off cancer.

    Research has shown that beetroot extract reduced multi-organ tumor formations in various animal models when administered in drinking water, for instance, while beetroot extract is also being studied for use in treating human pancreatic, breast, and prostate cancers.

      That’s good to know

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        MARY,
        It is little spoken about the benefits of beets. They just say we need to eat vegetables.
        By bringing into the spotlight each and every veggie, fruit, vitamin, nutrient, we are being educated to make a smarter decision next time. The more we know, the better off our decision-making becomes.

    Eat Beets And Help Your Body To Detoxify!

    The betalin pigments in beets support your body’s detoxification process, which is when broken down toxins are bound to other molecules so they can be excreted from your body. Traditionally, beets are valued for their support in detoxification and helping to purify your blood and your liver.

    Beets are also “a goldmine of health-boosting nutrients that you may not get anywhere else,” according to Health.com. And while scientists have yet to find the key to eternal youth, they’ve long known that beets contain antioxidants like lycopene, which boosts the production of collagen – associated with firmer, younger-looking skin.

    Currently, there’s a huge wave of beet juice and beet supplementation going on. Athletes and common folk like us are into beets.

    Beets can be used in almost every essential cooking recipe. Soups, salads, or eat it like an apple! Make facial masks with beets to dedoxify your outer layer of the skin and feed it nutrients to protect against aging, sun and other pollutants.

        Fiber will be filling you up! Less hunger. Less cravings. Balanced blood sugar.
        What a wave of benefits!
        Enjoy!

    Thanks for all the info, gonna have to try beets plain and beet juice, and find out what bok choy is

  12. WOW! I have not been on for awhile–the beet topic is a good one–I have known for years that they are a natural liver cleanser–hated them when I was a kid–but it was because of the way the school cafeteria prepared them! Some kind of a vinegery glaze on them–yuck! Now I just eat them right out of the can–love them on my salad with ranch dressing–they are SO good for you–I have fed the birds–given them fresh water–fed the dogs and watered the flowers–now the inside for awhile! Have a wonderful day everyone!

    • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

      Marsha,
      What a full day you’ve already had!
      So nice to have you as part of our AM Coffee community!
      Yes, it does matter how we prepare the beets. I do not like them overcooked.
      I like them raw better, but in salads, I can eat cooked, too.
      Whatever we do, beets give us so much goodness to live with!
