Beet Greens

Don’t waste the greens after removing the beets; these leafy stems and leaves are an excellent source of carotenoids, flavonoids and vitamin A antioxidants. Vitamin A helps maintain healthy mucus membranes and skin and is essential for healthy vision. They are often covered with dirt since they are part of a root veggie, so be sure to clean them thoroughly before consuming or adding to your NutriBlast.

Selection Process

Store beet greens in the refrigerator much like other leafy green veggies. Avoid leaves that have obvious "bug bites" and organic is best. Forgo any that are wilted or turning yellow.
