Now this is one brain super food I bet you don’t hear talked about much! A lot of the research on beets and the brain is relatively new, but that doesn’t make it any less important. Recent studies have suggested that one of the compounds in beets can actually help to slow and even reverse the brain plaques and tangles that cause Alzheimer’s Disease. Beets sometimes get a bad rap, but prepared correctly they really are so delicious! You can bake your beets and serve them with a bit of goat cheese or chop them up into an arugula salad, but regardless of how you cook them, just make sure to get your beets in this week.
