Beet root, or beet as it is known, is a root vegetable grown for over 3,000 years. It comes from the same family as spinach and chard. Beetroot is available all year round and can be bought fresh or canned. The root comprises several concentric layers of different colors, which is why it can be used to make natural dyes. They are high in antioxidants, fiber, iron, vitamin C, and potassium — and have even been linked to lower blood pressure levels.
