    In ancient Greek mythology, Aphrodite eats lots of beets, wanting to maintain her grace, eroticism and beauty. Their miraculous root is considered to be an excellent aphrodisiac since  the ancient times. Their presence in the Mediterranean, dating from the 2nd BC millennium. Modern science has proved their multidimensional contribution to our health.

    Beetroot is a vegetable that grows in the soil, it absorbs all the nutrients of the rich Greek land and should not be missing from our weekly menu, as it combines a high nutritional value and low energy content.

    Beets are rich in carbohydrates, nitrate, magnesium, iron, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, vitamin C, vitamin B1, B2, B6, B5, fiber and phytonutrients such as beta-carotene. The red color of the beetroot bulb is due to pigments called betalain and exhibit strong antioxidant activity. Also their juice is being  considered very beneficial for those suffering from rheumatism and arthritis. It is considered to help detoxify the liver, absorb calcium and many of their beneficial actions are based on this.

    A particular advantage of Beetroot is its' wonderful color, ideal to create easy  impressive dishes, such as a risotto with beetroot or a scarlet velvet soup, served with a spoonful of yogurt or fresh cheese in the center. With a little quantity of its' juice we may colour a white dip or a yogurt sauce or mayonnaise. Cut in tiny cubes, along with other baked roots (potato, carrot) it becomes a perfect side dish with fish. A classic combination is that with garlic sauce and fried fish, the most successful trio of the Greek cuisine.
