Health Food with a Twist: Cumin-spiced Roasted Beets

Ready for more health food with a twist? Let’s go!

beets

Beets and I have a somewhat tumultuous relationship (dramatic much?). The first time I decided to juice beets – I went all out. Go hard or go home, right? Well, that is not the case with beet juice. I juiced 2 beets and drank it straight.

Fast forward to severe chills, flu-like symptoms, and a scratchy throat and you’ve got yourself a fast and furious detox. A completely unintentional detox that I will never engage in again. It’s safe to say that I avoided beets for about 3 months after that incident. It was pretty scary.

Luckily, I have since eased beets back into my diet and for a good reason – they are super healthy! Just to be safe, I only use 1/2 a beet in fresh juice these days (+ a lot of other veggies to dilute the beet’s detoxing effects).

Recently, I realized how easy it is to enjoy cooked beets as well! Wash and prep, add seasonings, wrap in tinfoil, and pop in the oven to bake. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not!

And so cumin-spiced roasted beets were born. I use pretty much any excuse to break out the cumin (it’s one of my favorite spices) – however, if you’re not a cumin fan, then branch out and choose your favorite spice!

3 spices for the win: cinnamon, ginger, and cumin!

Step-by-Step:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prep beets—wash, then remove roots and stems (keep for juicing).
  3. Mix together the spices so they’re ready for step 5.
  4. {Get messy} Rub a teaspoon of coconut oil between your palms to warm it and then massage into the beet.
  5. Once the beet is covered in coconut oil, coat the beet with spices (this is where your personal tastes come in – for a milder flavor, use less.)
  6. Wrap in tinfoil and pop in the oven to bake.
  7. ENJOY!

These are fantastic as a side or sliced up and placed atop a big bowl of salad greens.

Are you a beet fan? If so, what’s your favorite way to enjoy them?

Hey there stranger! I've been a horrible blog reader lately but couldn't help but comment on this post because I spotted Costco cinnamon in your pic and had to express a little love for it!! :) I swear, I go through those containers like crazy! As for beets, I love to spiralize raw ones for salads, or roast them drizzled in balsamic. I love em so much but totally detested them as a kid. Go figure, hey? ;) I hope you're doing well and that you've had an awesome week!

Honestly, I'm not sure if I'm a beet fan. I think the only time I've really had beets in front of me is from a can during Thanksgiving. Gross! This, however, sounds great.

Love beetroot roasted along with other root veggies in winter. In summer prefer them pickled in vinegar!
Stains just about everything in the kitchen though.

Beets are often used as salad and rich with water which restore the lack of water in our body. The recipe of roasted beets is delicious as well as healthy. The college papers produced by poweredessays.com make it easy to get good grades because these are written according to your expectations.

Losing weight shouldn't be as hard as many people try to make it. People who are desperate to achieve weight loss are often prone to take more risks. The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.

The cumin spiced beets are enriched with such nutrition which are very necessary for our good health. Physician always recommend people to take balance diet in their routine so that they look physically fit but excess of food cause many severe diseases.

Seiring dengan bergulirnya waktu, kondom mulai diterima masyarakat. Banyak produk kondom ditawarkan dengan berbagai bentuk dan ukuran. Mulai dari rasa, tekstur, hingga ada juga kondom yang berukuran jumbo. “Yang paling banyak diminati adalah kondom bergerigi . Selain menyukai kondom yang bergerigi, konsumen kondom di Indonesia juga menyukai kondom yang memiliki aneka rasa, seperti coklat, strawberi, dan jeruk. Meski harganya relatif lebih mahal, banyak juga yang suka. Rata-rata peminatnya adalah yang masih muda.
Berikut pertanyaan dari salah satu pasangan muda yang baru dikaruniai seorang anak.
Tanya :
alat bantu seksual Kami belum lama ini dikaruniai buah hati perempuan yang sehat. Tentunya kami punya program untuk menunda kehamilan sampai anak kami umur 3 tahun. Untuk itu kami menggunakan alat kontrasepsi berupa kondom. Tapi banyak kondom ditawarkan, salah satunya adalah kondom bergerigi. Kami ingin mencobanya, tapi yang kami khawatirkan berbahaya tidak penggunaan kondom bergerigi tersebut, yang kami khawatirkan kondom bergerigi saat digunakan adalah apabila geriginya ada yang lepas dan tertinggal di dalam ?
Jawab:
cara memasang kondom Terlebih dahulu saya ucapkan selamat atas kelahiran putri pertamanya. Memang sebaiknya jarak kehamilan diatur agar tidak terlalu dekat, hal ini demi kesehatan ibu dan perkembangan anak. Cara mengaturnya dengan berbagai metode kontrasepsi yang ada, di antaranya dengan metode kontrasepsi hormonal maupun kontrasepsi non hormonal.
Kondom sebagai alat kontrasepsi termasuk dalam kontrasepsi non hormonal, kondomberfungsi mencegah bertemunya sperma dengan sel telur. Kondom ini merupakan salah satu alat kontrasepsi yang cukup efektif, mudah didapat, efek samping yang jarang, namun perlu kehati-hatian dalam menggunakannya. Untuk mencegah kegagalan kondom sebagai alat kontrasepsi maka ada beberapa hal yang perlu diperhatikan, yang pertama lihat kemasan kondom, apakah masih utuh dan dalam keadaan baik, kemudian lihat masa berlaku yang tercantum di bungkusnya, kondom yang sudah lewat masa berlakunya akan berisiko mengalami kebocoran. Yang kedua, perhatikan agar anda tidak terlambat memasang kondom dan juga tidak terlambat melepaskannya, kondom dipasang begitu ereksi dan harus dilepaskan setelah terjadi ejakulasi, sebelum penis kembali mengecil. Yang ketiga yang perlu diperhatikan adalah jika anda menggunakan pelumas tambahan, maka yakinkan Anda menggunakan pelumas berbahan dasar air (bukan minyak) yang tidak akan merusak struktur lateks kondom. Akan lebih baik jika kondom ini dikombinasikan dengan metode kalender, sehingga akan meningkatkan keamanan kondom sebagai alat kontrasepsi.
Beberapa kondom digunakan tidak hanya sebagai alat bantu seksual kontrasepsi namun juga sebagai variasi dalam menikmati hubungan seksual, misalnya sekarang banyak kondom dengan aneka rasa, seperti rasa buah-buahan, dan juga tersedia kondom dengan tekstur tertentu, seperti berbintil-bintil, ataupun bergerigi. Kondom-kondom ini sudah diproduksi dengan keamanan tertentu, sehingga tidak akan ada masalah seandainya digunakan oleh konsumen, namun tetap harus memperhatikan penyimpanan kondom dan batas waktu masa berlakunya. Selamat mencoba.
