Our muscles work hard to keep us striving toward our physical goals. But for the energy and strength that fuel our workouts, we depend on our hearts. These incredible organs work overtime to support robust training and spark fire with our passionate pursuits. So this Valentine’s Day, we decided to give them some extra TLC with a heart-healthy recipe from one of our favorite chefs, Dean Sheremet.
Dean, a renowned chef and author of the cookbook “Eat Your Heart Out,” knows firsthand about the power of food and conscious eating. Making positive changes to your fitness and health starts from the inside out, which is why this beet-centric elixir is the perfect pick for Valentine’s Day.
Beets are a superfood. In addition to being in rich immune-boosters and essential minerals that are critical for healthy nerve and muscle function, beets are known to lower the risk of heart disease. Their high levels of folate and betaine work together to help lower blood levels of homocysteine, which decreases your risk for artery damage and heart disease. Guess it’s time to juice up and give this recipe a spin:
