You might normally eat your beets chilled on a salad, with some goat cheese and arugula, or blended into your favorite juice. But if your beet game stops there, you're missing out. Roasted beets are high in all sorts of nutrients like potassium, iron, vitamin C, and beta-carotene, plus they even boost your brain power.
