Eating a rainbow of fresh fruits and vegetables is a great way to get the nutrition that your body needs, but finding space on your plate for every color under the sun can be a challenge. And when you add in the amount of time it takes to shop for and prepare fresh fruits and veggies, it can be daunting to bring a nutritional rainbow to your daily diet.

It’s true, having fruits and veggies on hand can help you make better decisions when it comes to snacking and meal prep, but you probably don’t need to stuff every nook and cranny in your kitchen with fresh-from-the-farm varieties. In fact, this can lead to overwhelm and unintentional food waste, especially for busy families.

Instead, think outside the box when it comes to stocking your fridge and pantry with healthy foods. Superfood powders provide a nutritious boost without any of the hassle of handling farm-fresh goods at home...and Sari Foods Organic Beet Powder is one of the most mouthwatering places to start!

Meet the Beneficial Beet

Beets are tasty veggies that provide a variety of phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals (like betalains, folate, manganese, and vitamin C) that may be tough to get elsewhere in your diet. Traditionally, beets have been enjoyed from root to greens in soups, salads, and other dishes throughout the world, and have even been thought to have cleansing properties, both when enjoyed whole and as juices or dietary supplements.1

Worried about the mess with preparing raw, whole beets? Don’t be! If you want to avoid getting those deep red stains everywhere, you can enjoy beets in much more convenient forms, such as beet juices and powders! These types of concentrated beet preparations are also popular for use among athletes and in some health products due to their nitrate content, which the body can convert into nitric oxide to support overall health.

If you’re looking for some eye-catching baking inspo, the dynamic beet’s fun color and natural sweetness also make it a popular addition to naturally dyed colorful desserts and holiday treats.

Why Choose Beet Root Powder Instead of Beet Juice Powder?

Beet root powder is a superfood blend that is derived from the entire beet, which is harvested, dried, and ground to a fine powder. This preserves all of the nutrients and fiber that the beet root naturally contains, allowing you to add all of the goodness of beets to your smoothies and other recipes.

Beet juice powder, on the other hand, is made from dehydrated beet juice, instead of the entire beet root itself. While it contains some of the nutrition of the whole vegetable, it doesn’t have the benefit of added fiber—which is wonderful for supporting your gut health.

Tips for Enjoying Beet Powder

Beet root powder is easy to use and adds a bright splash of color to your family’s favorite foods. Here are some things to consider when adding this ruby red powerhouse to your regimen!

• Choose Premium, Organic, and Responsibly-Sourced
Ultimately, the most important aspect in choosing a superfood supplement is ensuring that it’s made from wholesome ingredients. In addition to the whole food flavor of delicious beets, Sari Foods Organic Beet Powder is made from whole beets harvested at their peak and conforms to USDA regulations for organic growing.

• Add a Boost to Smoothies and More
You might already be thinking of the amazing things that beet powder can do for your morning smoothie or smoothie bowl (hello, gorgeous Instagram-worthy breakfast!), but beet powder can do much more than add a pretty red hue to your frozen treats. Because the freeze-dried powder retains the wholesome flavor of a whole beet—earthy, with a perfect balance of savory and sweet—you can add this powder to stews, soups, and other veggie-based dishes to bring extra richness and nutrition to mealtime recipes.

• Get Creative With New Recipe Ideas
Still looking for more to do with your beet powder? From main dishes to colorful desserts, you can use beet powder to liven up the dinner table or make an unforgettable birthday treat for a loved one. The possibilities are endless!
