This recipe is a combination of two of my favorite things: beets and chocolate. It's a healthy, filling breakfast that's full of nothing but benefits.
Let's start with beets. Beets are a great source of folate and manganese. They are also high in antioxidants, which help to battle free radicals, are an anti-inflammatory, and contain anti-aging properties. Beets are said to detox the blood of toxins and heavy metals.
Now the chia seeds. Chia seeds truly pack a nutrient-dense punch. They're high in fiber, protein, calcium, and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. Due to the high fiber content, chia seeds are great for digestive health and keeping bowel movements regular. They are also known to lower blood pressure, balance blood sugar levels, and reduce inflammation in the body.
