Beets are what I like to call a “comfort-cleansing” food. They are exceptional at what they do, tasks that often contradict one another. How can you satiate and cleanse at the same time? Beets are especially beneficial for their liver-cleansing properties, which make them a great addition to a detox-friendly lifestyle. Even better – they carry bulk and keep you full and happy. Beets aren’t easy to sneak into a recipe, because their color gives them away, but you don’t want to hide them anyway. Their earthy overtones make for a welcome addition to any meal. This beets recipe comes in the form of a delicious hummus. Enjoy!
