Whenever I’ve added beets to my salads, they’ve usually been steamed and cut into cute little bite-size cubes.  But for this salad, the beets are raw and grated. Beets contain an antioxidant called Betalains.  Betalains work to decrease oxidative stress and aid in detoxification in our bodies by breaking down toxins so they can be excreted from our bodies.  Traditionally, beets are valued for their support in detoxification and helping to purify our blood and our liver.  The Red Betalain pigments in beets are not very heat stable, so it’s best to eat beets raw or to juice them.  I’m pretty hooked on grating beets to add to my salads now.  Less of a mess too!
