The health benefits
Beets contain so many incredible nutrients that make them especially helpful for detoxification organs in the body. This includes the liver, digestive system, and kidneys. Beets also help in getting that lymphatic system flowing with ease, and they help in increasing oxygen by cleansing the blood. For your liver, beets are used to break down toxic wastes to help excrete them from the body faster. So good for detoxification! Which your body does all the time, including right now in this moment! Beets contain a group of phytonutrients called betalains that support detoxification through an important phase 2 detox step in the liver.

Don't be thrown off by the colour of the beets. This recipe is so delicious! It is not too overpowering which you may think based on the photo-it's so vibrant! But the lemon, garlic olive oil, tahini and chickpeas helps balance out the beet taste and the beets add just enough kick to your favourite traditional hummus recipe.
