Beets have been touted as a superfood — and for good reason. The antioxidant-rich root vegetable is low in calories (60 per cup) and contains more iron than spinach. Beets are also rich in potassium and fiber and studies show they have anti-inflammatory benefits. From a savory egg breakfast to luscious brownies, here are seven creative and delicious ways to use beets.
